D4 Productions, creators of the web series “Dark Darkness,” launch their youtube channel and Kickstarter campaign August 27th, 2012 seeking crowd-funding support from fans, followers, and friends to produce and release: Season Zero- “The Summonings.”
Directed and Co-Produced by Wilson Large, with Producer James Pidgeon, “Dark Darkness” is a new adventure-comedy-fantasy web series featuring dark lords, mythical crossbreeds, a dread wizard-vampire, a sorceress-ninja queen, Jerry the snakeman, a yeti, a troll, sheep and more. Led by Ronald the Dungeon Master, one of four protagonists and a dedicated Dungeons and Dragons gamer. Characters join forces, or conspire against each other, in a magical, fantastical realm. In pursuit of the truth, power, and “darkness,” characters strive to solve a murder mystery amidst raucous high jinks at a pace of ten webisodes per season.
“I have the perfect cast and crew with just the right combination of creative talent, professionalism and geekiness to collaborate with in creating our fantastical worlds with awkward characters in hilarious and exciting situations,” Large said. “We fit right in with an emerging genre of successful web series that include ‘The Guild,’ and ‘Fallout: Nuka Break’ and ‘Journey Quest,’ producing the kind of stories and characters that fans want and faithfully follow.”
Most of the principal cast is in place, with DK Reinemer as Ronald, Morgan Grobe as Mordecai & Jordan Donovan as Snakeman. All three improv actor’s have shared the stage with Ryan Stiles at his “Upfront Theater” in Bellingham, WA.
Upon successful completion of the Kickstarter campaign on Oct. 1st 2012, “Dark Darkness” will launch into full production of the next three episodes introducing the other main characters who will get their invitation to the Darkness Convention, with webisodes released in sequence on the “Dark Darkness” YouTube Channel, Ronaldandfriends.
