Who I am
My name is Adam and I'm a writer, animator and all around creator. I started out primarily as a writer but slowly evolved into a self taught animator. With a passion for creating original stories, I began to branch out more onto Youtube with original animations and eventually a planned web comic in the future. 

I am planning to move out of NY and head down to Texas to be around more of the creative industry that many of my peers live. Being there will help me improve the production quality of the series, record actors in studio vs remote. This Patreon is really a supplemental tip jar of sorts to help with the move and the overall transition of finding a place to live and to get myself stable as well as working to improve the quality of the show's production.  





Where is Shattered Heaven?

Since the Patreon's establishment, I've shown/shared the long road of Season 2's production. Animatics, audio files, cleaned up RAW episodes well before they're read to be released have been shared with Patrons of varying tiers. On May 27th, Season 2 will be released to the public and the show will be publicly active again. Episode 7 "Ashes" will be the first of the new season, followed by Episode 8 the following month. Episode 9 is currently in production, unsure if I'll be able to release that one a month after Episode 8, but it'll definitely be out this year by Fall the latest. 

What is Shattered Heaven?

Shattered Heaven is an Armored Core inspired, original mech novel series that was turned into an animated web series on Youtube in 2013. Following Adam Novus as he struggles to find his place in the world at war on Mars. Struggling with survivor's guilt and building inner rage, he has no choice to but to follow the orders of his superiors, but for how long will he be able to keep his burning instincts for revenge at bay? 

The first 6 episode season came to an end in August of 2016 and production on season 2 has been underway since early January of 2017. Originally animated in Adobe Flash CS6, season 2 will be using Clip Studio Pro, and with that, a boost in overall quality in the animation style. 

Shattered Heaven started off as a novel series and currently has the original versions of the first and second novels available on Amazon. However, a revision of the first book, Sins of the Soul  is due out in Summer of 2017. This book aligns with the animated series to prevent any disconnect between audiences. 



Why Patreon?

Shattered Heaven has been a huge undertaking, one that has been completely been fueled by passion. The project is essentially a one man animation project. I'm the only one handling the animatics and animation, in addition to the writing and casting and occasionally, the directing. I'm extremely lucky to work with so many talented actors, actresses, sound designers and composers. But as the project grows, the more I realize that I need more time to devote to the project. Sadly, that is not something I can do with the limited amount of time that I have. 

Patreon and the support of those who enjoy my work is one way to help supplement income to allow me to live and devote more time to the project. The project and any other animated web based project WILL ALWAYS BE FREE, but to improve and grow, this is a necessary step for me to take. 

Below are some Shattered Heaven Videos.

What is Dragon Star?

Dragon Star is a passion project written and created by Kira Buckland. Kira is a close friend of mine and asked me to help her bring her project to life. Dragon Star is an original animated series that explores the complex social and romantic relationships within a high school fighting game community.

High school student Kazumi Imuro is a casual fighting gamer who works part-time at the arcade her brother manages. However, her interest in fellow student and pro gamer Hiroshi Tanaka leads her to join the after-school Competitive Gaming Club, where she trains to become a better player and navigates the complexity of social and romantic relationships within a tight-knit fighting game community.

Not only am I working on my own animated web series, I'm also working on one for Kira Buckland. Originally, Dragon Star was going to be done in Flash, but once I switched over to Clip Studio Pro after SH's season ended, I decided it made the most sense to move Dragon Star to Clip as well.
