Brands with big international potential

Producer’s Note

COSMIC RIFT® is an ambitious science fiction series aimed at the 13+ audience. Our goal is to develop this into a new IP with diverse potential for the international market, while creating a thrilling and engaging series.

With world-class screenwriters and a top-notch concept team, we have made significant progress, including outlines for the first season, a second draft and animatic for an episode, detailed character bios, concept art, and more.

We are in search of investors, distributors, co-producers, animation studios, potential licensing partners, and others interested in joining this venture.


Director’s Note

Throughout my career, I have honed my skills in developing and directing content for young audiences. In the past five years, my journey included crafting a visual universe for international artist Alan Walker, encompassing over 20 music videos and numerous associated products. These videos have captivated millions worldwide, amassing nearly 3 billion views on YouTube.

This experience has deepened my understanding of young audiences' media habits and the integration of these insights into film. I've created an interactive, gamified world across various platforms, merging fiction with reality. This approach has fostered a dedicated community and fanbase, eager to engage with our creations for years to come. This understanding is crucial in creating a new series in 2024.

COSMIC RIFT® is an ideal project for applying and elevating this knowledge. The script's visual elements immediately captivated me, with settings and locations in landscapes I'm passionate about and have extensively explored.

I envision COSMIC RIFT® as a visually spectacular series, unparalleled in its execution. My approach to world-building starts with real places and phenomena, then amplifying and exaggerating them while maintaining a realistic base. For example, the volcanic lava tunnels central to the plot will reveal an awe-inspiring world, blending reality with fantasy in a way that I believe will deeply resonate with our target audience.

The series will incorporate graphics and pacing reminiscent of contemporary gaming, a style familiar and appealing to our target audience. The script’s action scenes, drawing parallels to gaming, will feature camera angles and perspectives akin to those in popular first-person shooters.

I'm dedicated to creating unique worlds, moving beyond established genre tropes. This commitment is already evident in our project's current phase, where we're defining everything from vehicles on new planets to the attire of nomadic peoples and the vegetation on hostile worlds.

Being involved in COSMIC RIFT® from the outset has been a privilege. This early involvement has allowed for a synergistic development of visual concepts alongside the series' writing. Set in 2573, the story unfolds across multiple planets, with a universe and inhabitants vastly transformed from today's humanity.

An intriguing aspect of COSMIC RIFT® is its tonal balance. While the script often ventures into dark, dystopian themes, an undercurrent of humor is always present. This blend is evident in the script and is something I intend to amplify and highlight through all the visual concepts developed for the series.
