Rob Mullin Beau Obremski are the co-founders of Sly Studios LLC, the company behind Scottish Ninjas.  It is their pleasure, and mine as well, to  announce that they are releasing their first KickStarter project for the production of Season I of the Scottish Ninjas web series.

During the past two years, they have: completed and released an initial pilot, been a selection at the 2010 ITV Fest and Seattle MIFFF festival, released several short videos on the Web (where they had over 70,000 views on their YouTube channel). They have also recently partnered with the media marketing outfit BigFrame.

The last year was spent perfecting their writing, animation techniques, and models. This can be seen in their last few shorts and will be seen again with the release of these first minisodes. They have plans to release their first season of Scottish Ninjas on their YouTube channel.  Hopefully their recent partnership with BigFrame will assist in marketing and developing a more sustained revenue stream.
