“The Rangers,” a new fantasy web series from the award-winning producers of “The Rise of the Fellowship” and one of the major creative forces behind the award-winning documentary “Darkon,” launches a Kickstarter campaign on March 8. They’re calling all fantasy fans to join their team of successful filmmakers, creative minds and talented craftsmen and actors to make this quality, fan-supported fantasy entertainment possible. The campaign rewards are enviable; the resulting series will be epic.
The series will follow an elite band of borderland protectors known as Rangers and their efforts to save their kingdom Olaran—and their entire world—from its greatest challenge. Even while they fight a mythic evil, they must overcome their own personal demons. Can the Rangers save their world without losing themselves?
“We’re developing a fantasy world of broad scope and depth that will be an immersive fan experience,” says Ron Newcomb, project creator and executive producer. “We’ve put together an incredible, successful team to bring fans the best fantasy content possible.”
We are the watchers in the woods,
The protectors of the realm.
We are the heralds of warning,
The beacon lighters of hope,
Violence prowls the land,
And hard men must meet it.
We are the judges…
We are the executioners…
Never will we fail,
Never will we give in.
The first to stand,
And if need be, the first to die.
We are the guardians.
We are the iron hand of the King.
The Body that fights,
The Mind that guards,
The Soul that endures.
We are the Rangers.
“The Rangers” team asks fantasy fans to:
- Check out the campaign and learn more about the series at www.therangersfilm.com
- Make a donation to put their name in the series and earn rewards
- Encourage others to donate
- Spread the word about the series to friends, bloggers, forums and social media influencers
- Follow them on Twitter (#TheRangersFilm) and Facebook
If the creators surpass their goal, they’re even considered making “The Rangers” into a feature-length film. “We want fantasy fans to join their blades with ours and become part of this adventure,” Newcomb adds.
