We want to be able to release webisodes on a regular basis. We will use everything we get from the Patreon on "Choose Their Path" webisodes, YouTube videos and hopefully one day new fully animated webisodes.

Welcome to an adventurous land! No matter if you choose to join us here on Patreon, remember to subscribe to our YouTube Channels: Sun Creature Studio (our mothership) and/or The Reward (Only the web series). Let's dig into it!


                                                               Team Sun Creature

What is Tales of Alethrion?
The Reward - Tales of Alethrion is an animated non-dialogue fantasy webseries where we follow 8 different character teams in the world of Alethrion. They are all connected to each other's stories mainly because of a mysterious treasure map which is leading to the world's biggest treasure, but not just that... Alethrion also trapped a powerful evil within his magical chest. This immortal monster of greed is just waiting to be found and freed by the unaware adventurers. The Journey is The True Reward!

Episode 01: The Reward

Episode 02: The First Hero


Choose Their Path Episodes :
"Choose Their Path" webisodes are the INTERACTIVE sub series of Tales of Alethrion still following the characters in the universe. We have always loved interaction with our audience. In these webisodes we are not focusing on the epic painterly backgrounds and the crazy animations. We are more focusing on making fun stories with our characters letting our audience (you here on Patreon) decide what the characters should do in the next webisode (fx. A - should they enter the dungeon or B - should they wait for the dragon to come out).

The Patreon
We want to be able to continue the Tales of Alethrion, and having it available for everyone on our YouTube Channels. So far, this ambitious indie project has been possible because of our awesome backers on previous Kickstarter campaigns. It is really hard to finance elsewhere since most broadcasters are looking for children's content or dialogue. Patreon allows us to make films and interact with our audience, especially in the "Choose Their Path" webisodes as mentioned earlier, where the stories are shaped by your decisions.

As a patron you will be informed monthly through insider updates. But most importantly, you will get the possibility to vote on the "Choose Their Path" webisodes ending options, and choose who to follow when we start up new story chapters (Choose Their Path or the main series)

Thank you for making this a reality!

Our GOALS
Our big goal is to be able to make new webisodes after the Kickstarter funded episodes have been released in 2016 (See Coming Soon). But since that is very costly, we get the opportunity to continue the INTERACTIVE "Choose Their Path" webisodes where our patrons vote on what the characters will do in the next webisode (A or B options in each ending). Of course we would also like to make other YouTube videos in between the animated releases. So, in short, the types of videos and webisodes will depend on the funding we can achieve through this Patreon per month! See below:

     200$: Secrets of the Dungeon videos at least once per month (behind the scenes, tutorials).

     600$: Monthly black and white "Choose their Path" webisodes

     850$: "Choose Their Path" - Minimum 2.5 minutes

   1100$: "Choose Their Path" - Minimum 3 minutes with added animation

   1700$: "Choose Their Path" - Description videos inbetween each episode about the world and chartacters.

   2300$: "Choose Their Path" - Now in color

   3300$: "Choose Their Path" - Now with new music and professional voices and sounds

   4000$: "Choose Their Path" - Now with epic Backgrounds

   5000$: Colored "Choose Their Path" - now with added compositing!

7.500$: Monthly webisodes in the ToA main series
(*Fully animated with effects and The Reward backgrounds, OR 2 "Choose Their Path" the following month with more simple animation and backgrounds. Our Patreons decide!)

10.000$: Monthly minimum 3 minute webisodes of the ToA main series
(See * description of 7.500$)

15.000$: monthly 4 minute webisodes of the ToA main series
(See * description of 7.500$)

20.000$: We will start preproduction for the Tales of Alethrion feature film with potential cinema release, besides making monthly webisodes

* The money that is not spend will go to making the episodes better (like new music tracks, voices, added animations, etc), pre-production for future webisodes, other YouTube videos (like Animation Jams, World Decriptions, etc.) or new equipment.

Quotes!
Tomm Moore (Director of Song of the Sea and Secret of the Kelts)
“The stories told in the universe of Alethrion are full of visual invention and action as well as lovely character moments, the viewers eyes are constantly dazzled by the next scene as it unfolds. Knowing the guys behind The Reward, I think a series would be an instant classic, with a unique personality all its own.”

Catsuka (Marc Aguesse)
"The Reward was an epic student short-film, full of adventure and bromance and I was very impressed with this new project, Alethrion has a strong background story, and you can feel how much the staff enjoys making this. I love such animation and design where I can feel mixed influences. This is both indie and entertaining, which is rare in animation".
