PostSubject: American Tokusatu!   Thu Jun 12, 2014 8:32 pm

[Hope posting this here isn't being to presumptuous!]

American Tokusatsu original production previews...

AdventDestiny: The premier series, the one that began it all, also the centralized storyline within my general "American Tokusatsu" universe. A tale of modern gods and how the world and it's populous react to the emergence of superhumanly powerful beings beyond the scope of our limited knowledge and understanding. The story follows the adventures of two unlikely allies; a resurrected saint, forced to adapt to a world very different from the one she was born into, and a noble demon, forced to put aside his pride and distrust of others. Together they fight to protect the world and those they care about from the rising threat of an otherworldly menace, bent on the completely eradication of everything in the universe!

This series is heavily inspired by the popular Tokusatsu franchise Kamen Rider.

Demon Binder Solomon: A supernatural detective, who wields the ancient seal of King Solomon, investigates crimes committed by mystical creatures called Daemons, aided by several loyal Daemons bound to the ring he possesses. As crimes begin to escalate, he must begin digging into his hidden past to discover the mastermind behind a supernatural criminal organization with plans to usurp humanity as the rulers of this world.

This series is inspired by the Tokusatsu franchise GARO, as well as the two Kamen Rider series Den-O and W.

Synthetic Warrior Kimaera: A group of strangers are abducted by an insidious corporation, experimented upon and transformed into living weapons. The survivors escape, some seeking to bring their captors to justice, others simply trying to return to normal lives, all the while pursued by the other twisted monstrosities sent by the corporation to recover their prize specimens.

This series is inspired by the Bio-Booster Armor Guyver franchise [both the original manga/anime and the two American movies.]

HyperKnight, Defender of Humanity X Jira, Queen of the Beasts [AKA HyperKnight X Jira]: This story focuses on the lives of a small community that resides near a top-secret government facility, the purpose of which is to contain numerous monsters and other entities of an anomalous nature. A mysterious meteor shower awakens a mysterious giant monster from beneath the earth, it's emergence inadvertently freeing many of the monstrous prisoners of the facility, who run amok through the town. A young man proves to be the only hope for the inhabitants, having discovered a piece of alien technology from the meteors that allows him to transform into the armored hero HyperKnight, aided and abetted by the beautiful but destructive being known as Jira, Queen of the Beasts!

This series is inspired by both the Ultraman and Godzilla franchises, and is also heavily inspired by American "B-Movie" monster lore.

Hunter-Killer Team Alpha [AKA HK-Alpha]: In the wake of several vicious attacks committed by the cybernetic minions of a international terrorist organization [not to mention the other threats mentioned in the previous storylines Wink], the world governments establishes a team of cybernetically enhanced commandos, equipped with the latest in military technology, and track down and eliminate the terrorists and their creations.

This series is inspired by the Tokusatsu franchise Metal Heroes [known in the west as both VR Troopers and Big Bad BeetleBorgs]

Vanguard Cross Chronicles: For over the decade, the Solar System had secretly been protected by a fleet of advanced space vessels, created from reverse engineered alien technology by Earth. One of the oldest and most distinguished of these ships is the Vanguard Cross, a support carrier transporting a team of advanced robotic war machines known as StrikeMechs. But recently, a new alien menace has emerged in our corner of the galaxy, destroying a number of the space vessels, the few not able to return to Earth forced to play a game of cat and mouse with the alien armada, scavenging whatever resources and equipment they can from long abandoned facilities in the solar system. Their greatest hope lies in the recently discovered "Biomech", now a part of the Vanguard Cross's compliment of vehicles, which contains a hidden power that could allow the crew to not just return to Earth, but also stop the alien armada before it can lay waste to their home.

This series is inspired by the Tokusatsu franchise Super Sentai [known here as Power Rangers], as well as by the anime series Mobile Suit Gundam and Macross [AKA RoboTech].

...............................................................................................................................................................

Daughters of Pandora: A side production project, more of an "adult" story about a group of friends who become trapped on an island inhabited by monstrous, humanoid women, and must learn to understand and accept their new circumstances in order to survive...

The reason this storyline is considered separate from my other American Tokusatsu projects is because the nature of the subject material is well... a bit more "graphic", if you catch my drift. Long story short, when I decided that I was going to try and get into independent film making, and when trying to think of ways to get into the business quickly [and with the money needed to fund my ideas], I thought of going into adult film making, since I heard it provides both experience and money for independent film... I felt I could only accept doing this if I came up with some sort of storyline idea that had a moralistic message buried in it, so that ironically I came up with a story that has a stronger message and theme than anything else I'd spent years developing!!! LOL!

Anyway, I've been going back and forth on the idea, of whether or not I'd rather try and create this thing to its "full potential", or edit it down for a more mainstream release, like with the other American Tokusatsu [although considering the subject material I can't imagine this thing getting anything less than an R-rating, or whatever equivalent exists for an independent film of it's nature.] Personally, I think it ultimately will depend on how much control I have over the project, if it were to make it into actual production, and whether or not I could maintain creative control of my unique characters... I've got some pretty cool ideas for some genuinely unique female monsters, who would be a perfect blending of sexual appeal and monstrous terror! And I would love to be able to bring some of the most creative and original creations into the mainstream American Tokusatsu storylines [minus any inappropriate content!], so for this I honestly have no idea what'll it end up being, though I ultimately think that the moralistic message I've created for this rather exploitive-appearing project is worth trying to tell, regardless of what format is ultimately used to bring this idea to life!

...............................................................................................................................................................

American Tokusatsu Fan-Fiction Projects previews:

Daikaiju Academy: ReEmergence: As some of you may already know, I'm a member of the deviantArt group Daikaiju Academy, a fan-fic setting where all of the classic giant monsters are reimagined as anthromorphic high-school girls, properly known as Kaiju Girls [not sure how people around here feel about them, I know that several other kaiju communities aren't very fond of them]. The group is pretty much all that's left of what was once a very popular spin-off of the Twisted Kaiju Theater webcomic, which ultimately was shut down do to creative disputes. Since that time, the fan-fic franchise has never been the same, and honestly I think it's on its last legs, interest wise...

I've tried to create a couple of fan-fic stories and expansions set in the story, hoping to spark back popularity, but ultimately first projects proved too hard for me to do by myself. Finally, I've decided that there's only one option left to keep the thing alive... which is to start anew! So I decided to begin a whole reboot for the Daikaiju Academy story, in the same vein as the Gareth Edwards Godzilla movie, the J.J. Abrams Star Trek movies, and the Marvel's Avengers film series; I love the way that all these reimaginings created something that both tributes the original source, keeps true to the original spirit of the material, but updated it for modern audiences.

So that's what I want to do for Daikaiju Academy, essentially give it a new, cinematic revamp, and though I can't really create something on the same scale as my various original American Tokusatsu productions, I can certainly try and make something that'll hopefully revive Daikaiju Academy's popularity again [and I haven't put aside thoughts of trying to do something like a Daikaiju Academy fan-film... if I'm going to try and make something like Daughters of Pandora, then there's no reason to not try and do the same thing for Daikaiju Academy... of course it'd have to be a non-profit production!].

Godzilla X Gamera X Ultraman X Evangelion X Pacific Rim: Ultimate Cross-Universe Battle!!! [AKA G.G.U.E.P.]: Probably what I consider to be the most ambitious kaiju fan-fiction idea, this is a story so grand, so out there, that I honestly have no idea where to begin! It would be from a visual stand point inspired by the Legendary Pictures techniques used in Pacific Rim and Godzilla 2014, with the other three franchises updated to match this. It'd probably have to involved alternant storylines, since I can't figure out a way that the storylines would be able to properly "cross-over" with each other if I sticked to the canonical storylines.

This is probably any kaiju/giant robot fan's dream project, so epic that it'd probably need a film production level of collaboration in order to pull it off properly! Certainly something I plan to do in the future... and of course you can bet that I'll want to try and make a fan-film using this idea too [if I do a Daikaiju Academy fan-film than this will be a must do, simply because it wouldn't be fair to the fans if the only fan-fiction I bring to life on film is a sex comedy about anthro Kaiju Girls!]

That's all for now folks, the six original American Tokusatsu projects [seven if we're counting Daughters of Pandora] will be the only official projects I'll be doing, though I'm leaving room for other possible fan-fic productions I may come up with in the future. Very excited to have a clear set of objectives for the foreseeable future! Wish me luck, and feel free to voice your opinions on the direction I'm going!

Impressive, absolutely impressive and extremely ambitious I must say! I find such a quality to be incredibly welcoming from anyone! One has to have a huge range of imagination and effort to work so many stories and balance so many ideas. I find:

Daikaiju Academy: ReEmergence:
AdventDestiny
HyperKnight X Jira

To be very enticing, peaking me interesting well enough that I look forward to witnessing their developments!

I envy those capable of balancing more than two or more projects, it really tells how firm they are capable of juggling multiple ideas and really shows the hard work and effort they invest into themselves to make their creations a reality. Although in that same vein it does breed admiration and inspiration to make one set out in accomplishing their own dreams and ideas.

I do look forward to all of these projects of yours AdventDestiny, especially Daikaiju Academy: ReEmergence! That's something that I might be interested in collaborating on should any comers be allowed in on the project ^_^

Thank God! I was wondering if anyone would even take an interest in my ideas! It's been damn slow everywhere, glad to see you guys back here!

AdventDestiny and HyperKnight X Jira are probably my two strongest ideas, and will probably be my flagship storylines; all the other originals [possibly including Daughters of Pandora, assuming I ever figure out whether or not the thing's going end up a porno or not!] are set in the same universe, so there's plenty of room for crossover, making this a truly diverse and intricate storyline.

And Boogie, I've already started an official Daikaiju Academy: ReEmergence discussion thread; truth is we really need some extra manpower, so whenever you've got some time to spare feel free to join in the discussion. Me and a new member are currently trying to work on a way of bringing in more people and attention to Daikaiju Academy.

Understood, I'll provide my full support towards Daikaiju Academy ReEmergence, and with a little collaboration with a few friends of mine, I could provide the manpower needed to pull this off Very Happy

Really, that'd be great! I haven't been able to make much progress on the project because I've been on my own for a while, it'd be great to start collaborating again!

You can also tell them they're welcome to participate in any of my original American Tokusatsu projects, if they're interested!
