Toronto, Canada, November 12, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- The graphic novel Injection that made waves when released earlier this year is growing and going mobile.
In conjunction with Nanomyte Studios, Injection was created by Mike Schroeder and has been turned into a short audio film featuring Lovina Yavari with cutting-edge effects and an original score by Alex Wilkinson and sound mixing by Dakota Smolders. The story was scripted by the creator, Mike Schroeder and has been further developed with the help of Miles McCraw. The worlds of Injection were created by artist Jamal Campbell. The film was directed by Mike Schroeder and produced by Adrian Harasowsky.
The team recently partnered with Toronto-based digital venture firm King Ventures to transform the way the world experiences comics and graphic novels by driving a new transmedia movement. The team is in the process of making a digital platform that is as immersive and engaging as modern games. The platform includes cutting edge visuals, novel interactions and fully-immersive worlds to explore. Ultimately, the team aims to open up the platform to support a wide variety of interactive content types.
The Injection app is intended to provide seamless immersion into the post-apocalyptic world of injection and allows readers to access more content as they follow the story - “the more you read, the more you unlock.”
To bring the app and platform to life, Mike and team are hoping to raise $15,000 in 30 days for their new Kickstarter campaign
The story of Injection is a sci-fi fantasy that begins after the fall of civilization, where a corporation named Syntech rises out of the ashes to rebuild infrastructure for humanity. In order to maintain control, Syntech employs special agents that inject themselves with super powers. An agent named Jinn is sent to hunt down a defector of Syntech, and tracks him to one of the last remaining cities, only to find himself questioning the motives of Syntech and his role in the new world.
