UNDER THE DOG the MOVIE: Live-Action Short and Music Video
■UNDER THE DOG’s next step: UNDER THE DOG the MOVIE, a theatrical release supported by the addition of 2 new features!
The new campaign aims for the production of “OVERTURE to UNDER THE DOG”, a live action piece set to further enrich the world of UNDER THE DOG beyond the scope of the original 30 minute “Episode 0” achieved in the previous campaign. A monologue by protagonist Anthea Kallenberg, voiced by voice actress Asami Seto is set to further enhance this work.
The production of a new ending theme for the theatrical version sung by Asami Seto, voice of protagonist Anthea is also anticipated.
Combining these 2 new features with “Episode 0” to create a 50 minute film for theatrical release is the focus of this second crowdfunding project.
The super tag team of Atsushi Isoyama and Shoko Omori will be lending their talents for this project. Isoyama, creator of the music and music videos of hit animations such as “K-On!” and “Shin Sekai Yori (From the New World)” is set to work on the live action piece and theme song. Omori, who wrote the lyrics for the “K-On!” super hits will be writing the lyrics.
■With a theatrical release as its goal, the campaign’s funding goal is set at $50,000.
A variety of rewards for project backers, including rare UNDER THE DOG merchandise is also set for release!
The campaign’s funding goal of “$50,000” will go towards production costs for the live action piece, theme song, and rewards for backers.
Rewards, based on pledge levels include viewing rights to the finished work and a digital animation keyframe collection, as well as rare goods such as T-shirts and canvas prints autographed by Atsushi Isoyama and Asami Seto.
Special rewards including invitations to the premiere showing and celebration party with the production staff, held in Japan are also planned for interested backers from overseas.
■Young girls, their battles, and the burden of their violent fate.
Looking toward the development of an anime series
UNDER THE DOG was developed through a combination of brilliant action with a thrilling story. There is so much more that could be expressed beyond those first 30 minutes, providing great potential for a future TV animation series. With that in mind, this campaign was created.
The campaign is set to last from October 20th to November 17th, 2017. Your support is greatly appreciated!
