Hi everyone, and thanks for stopping by.

There's plenty of Anime fans in the world, and many who would love to create their own someday.
Well, that has been my dream ever since I was a child, however I was born, raised and currently live in Australia.

But should our dreams be restricted based on where we come from or the color of our skin?
I don't think so, and I refuse to live this life without chasing that dream down and giving it my all.

The Project: 
Millennium Exile started as a short story for a university assignment 10 years ago, and from there it has evolved dramatically - including an array of unique designs.
From massive fantasy based world, to the creatures that inhabit it, as well as a diverse cast of characters...each of which, has been carefully and painstakingly thought through and sculpted with the greatest of care, to ensure a rich an original tale FILLED with wonder and lore. 

In recent years, Millennium Exile has come a great deal farther than just being a 'passion project'- with it developing a loyal and dedicated fan-base, and having been written up and featured in various news outlets, articles reviewers and bloggers from around the world such as: Kotaku, ABC radio, Neo Magazine and much more.

The Plan:

Firstly, I do not plan on creating Millennium Exile here in Australia.
I have massive respect for the men and women of Japan who dedicate themselves to creating this beautiful art-form that we all watch so lovingly.
My goal is to travel to Japan, present my project, and work with the talented industry professionals to create an authentic and engaging story.

I am currently putting together an art-book...A "Millennium Exile Encyclopedia" if you will, that will be filled with information, artwork and lore about the story, characters and their powers.
This book will also address important information such as target audience, episode guide and overall direction of the story itself. 

However, a wise man once told me:
"You cannot expect more than 5 minutes of a persons time when it comes to your initial pitch" 

To that end, I am creating a Demo Reel that will feature paralax animated imagery, accompanied with music and voice acting in the form of a 5 minute trailer as a proof of concept.
I am proud to further announce that the demo reel, while still incomplete, has already received vocal dubbing from an all-star cast of professional Anime voice actors in the United States, including: Kyle Hebert, Ben Diskin and Kaji Tang to name a few.


So why Patreon? 
Well, for the past 3 years I have been receiving donations directly from the fans around the world, and developing myself on the big social media platforms to further interact with my audience.
While this has been amazing to say the least, many of you have been screaming for the project to make it's way to Patreon.
So here I am...and with your continued support, I hope that together we an see this through this story from being conceived in the West, right through to a collaboration with the East.

Breaking down the borders and boundaries between countries to tell a story....

The story of a young man who challenges his own destiny and is thrown into a world he never knew existed. Armed with a power that had been exiled for a thousand years, will Vincent be the key to the worlds salvation or it's demise?

I'm not going to set the first tier incredibly high because hey...let's face it, not everyone has disposable income just flying out of their wallets.

Because of this, I want to be inclusive and accommodating to those of your who want to be a part of this project, but without breaking the bank :)

All patrons in this tier will be thanked publicly at the end of each month both on the Millennium Exile Facebook page and the official website blog.

Although support and donations of all amounts are appreciated, this tier really helps towards building a sustainable amount that will really help the project grow!

Well then, I'm not quite sure how to respond to those of you in this tier other than with my most heartfelt gratitude.

The amount of money pledged in this tier is no joke, but needless to say...for a project that pays and supports artists from around the world, you will be not only spreading the love, but you'll also be enabling a highly quality of work!


All patrons in this tier will have the ability to choose what your support goes towards.
This means an exclusive look into what is being planned for upcoming releases, including unreleased characters.

Like a certain character?
Well with this tier you have the power to help push them to the front of the cue for release.

Divine Intervention
$1,000 or more per month 0 of 1 patrons
This is a special one. This tier will be limited to 1 person who wants to come to the table with an enormously generous donation.

Email, voice chat (Skype or Discord ) or Personal Facebook.
If you live locally, we can even meet up for coffee!

 
Goals
$347 of $500 per month
This goal is a biggie...with industry professionals voicing my demo reel, this has really raised the bar for the audio department. 
I think my most immediate goal right now (outside of the artwork), would be having an amazing score to compliment the whole production. 

I happen to know a first rate music composer that is currently working in the Anime industry.
I won't identify them because their availability is another issue all together. However hitting this goal would allow me to save up and reach out, presenting a reasonable amount for their work to be attached to the project.
