Hi everyone! After a 6-year haitus, KAGE Productions is back in action and has completed its first animated trailer. This is the first in a series of animations that will begin airing online in 2013 based on my previously published manga graphic novel, Shadow Magic.

Please take a gander and let us know what you think!

VIEW FULL VERSION on Youtube: [link]

Couldn't figure out a setting for a more copressed filesize =_= so my apologies I couldn't upload the full version on DA since there's a 200mb cap.

Story: College student Lina and her best friend stumble upon ancient ruins of a mysterious origin and get pulled involuntarily into the politics and war of another world where magic and technology co-exist.

This trailer is a promo for the novel written by Tiffany Lei *cough yes me cough* and will be available in e-versions very soon! The first chapter of the manga is also available in print via the website and at KAGE Productions' convention booth. Chapter two is on the way and will be available in March of 2013.

Visit us on Facebook and Like us for the most up to date info and behind the scenes snippets!

Tell me, would you be willing to do a fanime for me and my group? We've been looking for someone who'd  be willing to do at least one episde, at most ten, and I  think you're talented enough to do it. We of course will pay you, if we can afford your price.

What kind of fanime? And can you provide an example of the quality you're looking for? And lastly, how many minutes of animation?

The same quality as was in this trailor as far as art style and animation. The anime is to be based off of our group :iconanima-famiglia: and would feature what characters I send you. And anywhere between five and ten minutes of animation, so I guess around eight on average.

Oh, cool! Is your group totally original, or based on an existing property? Just to be clear before making any estimates =).

I like to hear that! =D Hmm maybe you can give me an idea what your budget is like? We offer several 'levels' of animation quality for different budgets. We might be able to negotiate something. Can you send me a note with more details? Possibly a sample script?

Well I'm glad you do. Well why don't you tell me what you're lowest level and your highest level would be and we'll see if we can meet somewhere in the middle. I've never been involved with this type of thing before so I don't really know how prices typically work. The sample script I can do easily, but right now it's being reworked so I'll have to get it to you as soon as possible. More details, well that part might be harder. You see the easiest way to understand would be if you took a "tour" of our group and saw what it was all about and what kind of characters we create and what we do with them. For example you can look at the character page of my character Leon, who would be a major character in the anime, and see if that gives you an idea. I'm sorry if I'm being a little difficult, I'm new to this type of thing.

And this second one is a link to a story I wrote for a group assignment that features two of our characters, and this might also give you a better idea about the types of things involved with our group.

o___o mayshing! Wow I've admired your work [ninja style] for a while <3 Perhaps Canadians just do it better xP. I sincerely appreciate your kind words and I completely feel the same way. There are a crapload of things that go into animating and I totally respect how you've accomplished so much, also! *rolls up sleeves* Back to work!

Best wishes to your ambition. ;D

"Wow, I had no idea there was that many pages to this. Oh I do like that the animal-people look like animal-people and not people with stripes. Hey, that animation is actually really smooth, I could be watching an anime trailer. So this is looking a bit like a Final Fantasy story - OH MY CRAP SHE JUST CUT THAT BUILDING IN HALF!" :D

pages? Lol, do you mean the slideshow thing it does with the mouseover?
Yahhh I am sticking with the tradional designs for this world from when I was a kiddo. They were more animal-like and not just ears and tails =3. hehehe actual anime trailer coming soon (well, in a few months)!

Haha you'll find it. Well that's not bad, reading it's a good way for relaxing. I should force myself to read too, I have a bit abandoned A Feast of Crows that would be more productive than looking at the ceiling.
