About Kalamity Jane

The New Name in Teenage Salamanders

Kalamity Jane is a teenage salamander, and with that comes everything you'd expect: angst, awkwardness, unwieldy tails. After her mentor meets an untimely end, Kalamity must continue on without him, forging her own way in the world; her training half complete, her tail always in the way. Oh, and by the way, she's a teenager. So she struggles, much like we all have, with finding her place in the world.

The Kalamity Jane Adventure Hour takes fans on a wild ride through an unpredictable world, with even more unpredictable characters. And the best part? This hour is only eleven minutes long!

Target Audience

Do you like action? Adventure? Tales of daring do? Then The Kalamity Jane Adventure Hour might just be for you! Set in and around the small town of Dry Gulp Gorge, Kalamity Jane and friends shoot up Warhogs, spar with spoiled fembots, and push back the tide of an animated menace. And we promise, all of this will make sense at some point. Kalamity's monthly hour of adventure will always have elements of classic Westerns, golden age Hanna-Barbera action cartoons, and the absurdity of Adult Swim.

The Kalamity Jane Adventure Hour is perfect for teenagers and up. The silliness combined with a subtle adult appeal, with a dash of nostalgia thrown in for good measure, is intended to be fun and action packed. "Serious" is definitely not a word you should expect to find in our vocabulary.

About the Creators

James Jacob

James has been working with stories, animation, and games for a long time. Over the years he has collected a number of techniques to produce cool stuff with speed and efficiency. This has allowed him to deliver content for numerous clients during the day while working on partnered projects at night. He also makes great enchiladas and hates to brag about it.

Eric Studer

A fifteen year veteran of the video game industry, Eric has worked as a producer in design, engineering, audio, and most importantly cinematics. He has a broad understanding of what it takes to produce consumer entertainment that comes from his diverse experience in the industry. He is also a passionate writer and editor, specializing in short fiction and screenplays.

Our Goals

  • Develop four short cartoons featuring Kalamity and her eclectic friends and foes.
  • Release one episode at a time with "behind the scenes" content between each release.
  • Produce podcasts, promotional videos, and other grass roots marketing materials to help promote the property.
  • Lay the groundwork for future episodes, and continue development of the Kalamity Jane Adventure Hour concept.

The Kalamity Jane Adventure Hour is a passion for both of us, and your support makes it possible. So from the deepest part of our hearts, thank you. The show would not be possible without you.
