About Lightning Dogs

They're a pack of anthropomorphic dogs from another world, trapped on a post-apocalyptic Earth, battling the evil Glampire! Armed with special powers and tearing through the Wasteland in their combat-ready vehicles – they fight off Glampire’s minions and keep his vampiric reach from extending to the stars.

Our goal is to turn Lightning Dogs into an animated series. That’s a long process from script to screen and a challenging journey.

Since this series' accidental creation in he middle of recording a podcast we've documented every session as we continue to develop the characters and the world, and the response has been amazing. Now, in Lightning Dogs: The Official Paw’dcast, we're documenting our entire quest as we break into the world of animation. Maybe we'll end up as an independent web show, maybe we'll get picked up by a studio, but you'll be with us every step of the way - and along the road there'll be comics, scripts, production art, and all kinds of other awesomeness as we create the sci-fi cartoon you've waited your whole life for.

We’re Cap, Doug, and Tony, best known as the creators behind various podcast series from Omniverse and The Nerdy Show Network. We’re professional illustrators, writers, and aficionados of pop culture. Our goal is to make an incredible sci-fi adventure series inspired by our favorite cartoons, movies, action figures, and dog puns. We’ll do whatever it takes to make this dream a reality.

This Patreon will help us ramp up to that lofty goal of becoming an animated series and offer a unified place for fans of Lightning Dogs to connect with us as we continue production. It'll help fund further production artwork, scripts, storyboards, potentially even full animation and voice work.

How serious are we? We're also raising funds to have our pitch bible reviewed by professionals from the animation industry, including Greg Weisman - creator of Gargoyles, co-creator of Young Justice. He's agreed to do it, but he can't do it for free.  We're engineering our lives to be devoted exclusively to Lightning Dogs. If we can raise enough money, Doug has agreed to quit his job and live on only $1000 a month. If that happens we'll be able to release the podcast weekly and double our efforts to bring Lightning Dogs to life in comics, serialized audio dramas, animated shorts, and other mediums.
