With the rise in Black and Asian creators and creation making it big, comes a brand new opportunity to add to its ranks. Afro Samurai Champloo is an action adventure short film about a selfish warrior named Mugen and his attempts to get rid of his broke lifestyle by killing Afro Samurai, the most wanted bounty in Japan.
You all know and love Afro Samurai and Samurai Champloo! Both being fellow nerds and Hip-hop fans, Quirktastic and Team Red Pro have come together to bridge the two anime in a crazy, cool live-action. With an original script, Afro Samurai Champloo also promises dope music scores by artists like Eye Love Brandon and Martin. The lovely people at Quirktastic and Team Red Pro are looking for donations to help fund the project. It is being shot between two different locations (Virginia and Los Angeles) and has a cast and crew of 35 people. With donations comes some pretty cool perks such as t-shirts and hoodies, QuirkCon tickets and Loot Crates, to film specific perks such as 1-on-1 time with the director, a mukbang with the cast, or even the chance to be in the film!
Any contributions can help! As their goal amount will be used to make the best possible work and pay our cast and crew. Even, if you can’t donate you can still help. Both teams kindly ask if you could share the news on social media to help them reach their goal. Though it’s their first joint film project, both teams come with reputable experience in producing, with Team Red Pro having many viral videos and Quirktastic being featured in Forbes and Essence magazines.
Afro Samurai Champloo is sure to be an awesome adventure for all fans of the anime, both old and new. Check out more of the behind-the-scenes, fun perks, and how you can support on IndieGogo!
