A ‘fan-made’ stop-motion animation (their first, apparently) directed by Derek Kwok and Henri Wong of Parabucks using hyper-realistic collectibles from Hong Kong model maker Hot Toys, including the Christian Bale/Batman and Heath Ledger/Joker figurines.
The producers of the Harry Potter inspired Auror’s Tale however – set in the wizarding community of Manhattan – are seeking Kickstarter completion funding. Hence the impressive teaser, which they maintain was shot on the fly and produced with a tiny budget.
From the synopsis:
New York City is a battlefield. Dark magic rules the underworld. The NYC Department of Magical Law Enforcement (DMLE) is the only line of defense. Hawthorne is the force’s newest recruit and the dark criminals’ latest threat. Plunging into the nightmare that his occupation offers, he makes quick enemies of the most depraved wizard gang in America: the ever violent, ever twisted Hellhounds. AUROR’S TALE chronicles Hawthorne’s tempestuous adventures.
