KOJI

"A lightning powered boy and his giant water/ice powered blue cat buddy, go on an epic and fun journey seeking an end to the evil that has taken over their planet."

Creator/Director: Alexander Snow

SYNOPSIS
Koji crash lands on a colorful earth-like planet, inhabited by incredible alien creatures and hybrid animals. It's here that he meets Tako, a giant blue cat with water/ice powers, who will become his lifelong best friend. They journey together to defeat the evil spreading throughout the land, and it's up to them and a few valiant others they meet along the way (including an elf with a cybernetic arm and a puggorilla warrior), to put an end to the Robot King and his mechanical army. 

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT
Koji is a story that at it's surface is very fun, with characters everyone can enjoy and who each bring something unique to the table. As cool as their powers are, and as awesome as it is to watch them fight and destroy their robot enemies, what makes the show standout from others is what lies beneath the surface. At it's heart Koji is a story about teamwork, its about choosing to do something because it's the right thing to do even if it's the harder path, and for Koji it's about the complicated question of what it means to be adopted and the unknown past that picks at his brain. Not only does the story have a lot of substance, but each character is believable and layered and throughout the series tackle real issues such as confidence, abandonment, racism, brotherhood, friendship, and purpose. Everyone is a hero in their own eyes, until they see the truth through another's.  Although that sounds pretty intense, most of that is in layered in the subtext. The show in actuality plays and draws inspiration from great character driven stories such as Avatar: The Last Airbender, Samurai Jack, Ben 10, Star Wars, Guardians of the Galaxy, Pokemon, and more.

HISTORY  
Three years ago, after first coming up with the idea of Koji, Tako and the world they inhabit, Alexander set off to create a comic version of the story of Koji and his lightning gem. After having fun beginning the creative process, Alexander used the start of Koji to meet and work with a ton of extremely talented artists before finding his perfect collaborators. After finding fantastic artistic talent, and with a personal history working in film/tv/and games on products such as Zootopia, Big Hero 6, The Amazing Spiderman, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, Red Dead Redemption, and more, Alexander turned his focus to the screen. With a solid structure in hand and story planned out, he brought Joel Foster on to write the official version of the pilot script. After completing a pitch book, Alexander teamed up with a small but superbly skilled group of artists, and began creating the awesome KOJI ID animation which was done on a shoestring budget in just a couple of months. After almost 3 years, with the ID animation complete and the pitch book written, he is now seeking financing to begin production of an animated series to truly bring the world of KOJI to life.
