For those of you that may have missed some of the recent updates, we have added a few very limited quantity rewards at the $350 and $1000 pledge levels. They are live on the page now.

We also wanted to feature one of the Kickstarter-exclusive rewards and so we decided to unveil the design for the Sela action figure!

Isn’t it beautiful? Our friend Clay Moore (of C.S Moore Studios) will be sculpting this action figure. He has recently completed sculpting our first line of action figures and they came out great! Here’s a side by side comparison of the concept art as well as an example of one of his finished projects.

This limited edition action figure is only available through this Kickstarter campaign and can be yours at the $300 pledge level. You will also get the Collector’s Edition Package at this pledge level. We’re offering some of the coolest collectibles we’ve ever produced in this campaign because we really want to make this series a reality.

Please, continue to spread the word about this exciting project and get as many people as you can to contribute. There are a wide range of rewards for pledges, and all the support is going towards an amazing product.

ZENESCOPE ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN FOR GRIMM FAIRY TALES ANIMATED SERIES

Zenescope Entertainment is proud to announce the launch of the Grimm Fairy Tales Animated Series Kickstarter campaign. The animated series will be directed by Jon Schnepp as well as the Titmouse Inc. animation studio. The Kickstarter will launch on Friday, March 16, 2012 and will run until May 1st, 2012.

The project requires a budget of $175,000 to cover the cost of the pilot episode and to produce the foundation materials necessary to continue the series. Any additional funds will go towards adding additional episodes to the series.

Zenescope Entertainment President Joe Brusha had this to say:

“We believe that our Grimm Fairy Tales comic book series would make an excellent animated series, and we’ve been pitching the idea to the Hollywood big-wigs for years. They’ve said “There is too much Fairy Tales stuff out there”, or “No one wants to see a gritty, dark, modern take on the fairy tales.” That’s where they’re wrong. We have tons of devoted fans that would love to see more of our series, and that is our chance and yours to make it happen.”

Grimm Fairy Tales has been the flagship series of Zenescope Entertainment since the company started. Zenescope has grown to a top comic book publisher due to its continued success. Grimm Fairy Tales is currently the longest running independent color comic being published today and has over 1 million copies in print.

Jon Schnepp will be directing this project. He is one of the hottest animation directors inHollywood, having already seen a great deal of success working on such series as Aqua Teen Hunger Force , Metalocalypse, and the Venture Brothers. Not only will Jon be working closely with the creators of the comic book, Joe Brusha and Ralph Tedesco; Zenescope will be enlisting Titmouse Inc, one of the premiere animation studios, to help with this vision.

Titmouse Inc is a premiere animation studio with top-tier talent and experience. Jon Schnepp has worked with them before on many of his projects, and much of their work rounds out the Adult Swim animation block on Cartoon Network. Their variety of experience is suited well for the Grimm Fairy Tales animation series anthology.

Now head over to the Kickstarter page and give as much as you can. The more you give, the more you get!!!

    I’m not a lazy person but a direct link would be nice. I do realize it’s to the bottom right as part of the Facebook news feed, but simple things are appreciated.
