ELFQUEST AUDIO MOVIE - EARLYBIRD PLEDGE (with exclusive signed print!)

The Fantasy Network Store

Help support the official ElfQuest Audio Movie with an earlybird pledge to the upcoming crowdfunding campaign! 

You will receive all crowdfunding rewards for the tier chosen (including any unlocked stretch goals), plus a special earlybird exclusive: an 8x10 hand-signed print of new ElfQuest artwork from Wendy and Richard Pini.

Want the new ElfQuest Audio Movie print or the #ayoooah hat? These bonuses are only available here! Plus, with the first official ElfQuest 28mm miniatures created since the early 1990's, this is the perfect opportunity to paint and game with Cutter, Leetah, and six more classic ElfQuest characters.

Why pre-pledge? Every dollar raised now reduces the crowdfunding goal when the official campaign launches in April! You will only be charged if that full campaign succeeds.

The Audio Movie

Richard and Wendy Pini of Warp Graphics, Fred Greenhalgh of Dagaz Media, and Ben Dobyns of The Fantasy Network are thrilled to announce a joint venture to adapt the classic fantasy comic, ElfQuest, as a cinematic ‘audio movie’ experience with an anticipated cast of more than 40 voice actors, original sound design, and a lush orchestral score.

ElfQuest: The Audio Movie will be directed and produced by audio drama pioneer Fred Greenhalgh (Locke & Key, The X-Files: Cold Cases, The Dark Tome), and co-produced with Jonathan Woodward (HBO’s Wit, Buffy, Angel, Firefly), with creators Richard and Wendy Pini serving as executive producers. The audio movie will be made in association with The Fantasy Network (Mythica, JourneyQuest, The Rangers) and K4 Media.

Why Crowdfunding?

Since the beginning ElfQuest has been an independent story, guided lovingly by Wendy and Richard Pini. While exploring how to create the ElfQuest Audio Movie, especially in a way that honors their unique vision and the passion of generations of fans, it became clear that this project needed to retain that independent voice and vision. Crowdfunding allows fans to support artists directly, which frees everyone involved to create a show free from the constraints of corporate notes or changes. It also allows the producers to keep the show from ending up locked behind a single paywall. We want everyone to be able to encounter and enjoy these first episodes so much that the story can continue.

And with your help, it will!

Timeline

The ElfQuest Audio Movie is a full production with dozens of cast, music, sound effects, and more. The production anticipates early release to backers in the fall of 2021 and a general release in early 2022. As with any crowdfunding project, those dates may be subject to change.

Shipping

We will charge for shipping in our pledge manager software when the campaign is ready to fulfill. This lets us use the most accurate and fair shipping prices. Our fulfillment team has handled dozens of campaigns and will be making sure that rewards are shipped as efficiently, cost-effectively, and safely as possible.

Backers in countries with VAT or other import fees: our plan is to import and stage products in the USA, Canada, EU, and Australia so that they can ship locally. As such, where VAT or duties are required we will charge them in the pledge manager as well so that your rewards can be delivered directly to your door.

Risk & Challenges

The ElfQuest Audio Movie team has collectively produced everything from the X-Files and Locke & Key audio movies to independent crowdfunded series like JourneyQuest and The Gamers. Plus, The Fantasy Network brings the experience of ten years of crowdfunding success and dozens of successful project fulfilments. And of course, Wendy and Richard Pini have been producing ElfQuest comic books for over forty years!

However, even with that roster in mind, any project can experience setbacks and difficulties. When you pledge to a crowdfunding project, you're making the decision to trust that the people involved have the skills, passion, and track record to deliver magic. We hope that our track record speaks for itself!

The Team

ElfQuest is the longest-running independent fantasy graphic novel series in the USA, has appeared on the New York Times best-seller list, and has more than 20 million comics, graphic novels and other publications in print. The story of Cutter, chief of the Wolfrider tribe of elves, and his quest to find others of their own kind on the World of Two Moons, ElfQuest was first published in 1978 by creators Wendy and Richard Pini. The final issue of the latest cycle, The Final Quest, was published by Dark Horse Comics on February 28, 2018, exactly 40 years to the day after the initial appearance of Elfquest, and kicked off a year-long anniversary celebration. Late in 2019 a new series, Stargazer’s Hunt, was launched, with further publications planned.

Dagaz Media is dedicated to producing stories which push the boundaries of what people think can be achieved in audio. Dagaz was founded by US audio drama pioneers Fred Greenhalgh and William Dufris, whose collaborations include Locke and Key, developed as a loyal-to-text, location-recorded audio drama for Audible, The X-Files: Cold Cases and The X-Files: Stolen Lives, also for Audible, featuring original cast members including David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, and Expeditionary Force: Homefront, for Podium, featuring Zachary Quinto and Kate Mulgrew. The Dagaz original series, The Dark Tome, has achieved over 6 million downloads to date.

The Fantasy Network (TFN) is a creator-owned video-on-demand and crowdfunding platform founded in 2018. With most content ad-free and free-to-watch, and featuring independent science fiction and fantasy films and television from globe-spanning independent filmmakers, TFN’s mission is to build direct relationships between fans and creators, empowering audiences to renew the shows that they love. TFN is founded by the award-winning crowdfunding and production teams behind Zombie Orpheus Entertainment (The Gamers, JourneyQuest, Strowlers), Arrowstorm Entertainment (The Outpost, Mythica), The Forge Studios (The Rangers), and Recursor TV. In addition to streaming and crowdfunding, in 2020 TFN’s unique interactive technology provided virtual event services for the 78th Annual WorldCon, the Hugo Awards, the Gen Con Film Festival, the 48 Hour Film Project, and more.
