DAYUM!!!! #Netflix green lights #Cannonbusters

Being one of many supporters of #cannonbusters when it was a #kickstarter campaign I am overjoyed to hear it got picked up by #netflix for a 12 episode run. It’s a bitter sweat moment because there has been no update from the campaign heads to anyone supporters since July 16,2016. Once you start a campaign through a social network platform it is expected that one should be transparent and open, that is so far from the actual truth. I suspect more than likely in order to get the contract with netflix the team had to agree to an exclusive buy out or acquisition from netflix, much in the same way when you want to have exclusive contents locked to a Game platform system. Yes it may appear to be bad business but it’s simply business none the less. All I hope after this neflix adventure wraps is that they honor the kickstarter campaign at that point I can be satisfied. Even though I want to see Children of Ether which was another production done with the blessing of #crunchyroll I will refrain until the cannonbusters fulfillment is honored.

This reminds me of another talented artist who had to still prove his merit the great #HayaoMiyazaki. To get green lit for his First major animation #NausicaƤ of the Valley of the Wind, he had to create a manga and publish it which basically became the blue print for the film which was a trimmed down version of the manga. I will wait patiently for how this will play out. Incredible times we are in. We got little witches series, a new voltron and god knows which other animated series that I may have missed that went under the radar.

DAYUM!!–Cannon Busters: The Animated Pilot Official Trailer

canon-buster

So CannonBusters which seems synonymous to GunBuster a classic animation series but no relation dropped early this month which would be July 8th 2016. It was an amazing short by the Cannon Buster team – Lesean Thomas, Thomas Romain and the whole Satellite gang along with any other partner company and Artist that too part.
The music and animation blended beautifully, it had a vibe that simply screamed I wanted this damn animation made into a series.

Getting to the meat I am very elated that I supported the kickstarter. Was it what I expected and more? In actuality, I was unsure what to expect as I was not sure if the creator was aiming to follow what he started in comic which I also own. The comic as I briefly recall was most definitely a different take thus far but I am excited to see where they may go with this slight shift, again I am unsure if that was the original course, the creator can do whatever he feels. As for the look and feel this was a vibrant setting, not much is shown in terms of scale as this simply was the opening pilot or half a pilot as I would assume as it was only 15 minutes. Here is to hoping that this publicity affords them the greenlight to secure funding, as it does cost a great deal to produce this level of animation. If possible I would hope it was picked up by netflix as I have a love for how netflix works, then again this feeling is from a consumers point of view and not as a creator. Overall I would hope that the creators are benefiting from such a union.
