On March 28th we were invited to the Captain Canuck Indiegogo Campaign Launch to record a special podcast of the event. During our time at the event we got to speak with many of the creative powers behind the campaign. We spoke with Paul Amos (Mr. Gold), Richard Comely (Captain Canuck Creator), Kalman Andrasofszky (Designer of the Captain Canuck Update), Paul Gardner (Creative Director), Sam Chou (Director of Animation) and Fadi Hakim (Producer). Unfortunately Kris Holden-Ried (Captain Canuck) was not able to to attend due to other commitments.
Take a listen as we discuss a variety of topics from Captain Canuck to creative process to hamburgers. Yep, in our typical style we leave no topic unexplored hence, the discussion of hamburgers. We may also discuss criminal apprehension etiquette. Hey, we are Canadian after all.
The party itself was a ton of fun. Many local comic artists were able to make it out to show support as well as, of course, the fans themselves. There was no shortage of enthusiasm by those in attendance. They even launched the Indiegogo campaign during the party, showing the video they made with Kris and Paul. As for that video, which also highlighted some of the other creative minds working on the project, I have to say it is one of the best videos I have seen for a crowdfunding project. If the video was any indication of the final product, I have no fear that this web series will be awesome.
If you thought you knew Captain Canuck, you are WRONG. This ain’t your daddy’s Captain. This is a newly redesigned look for the sentinel of the north. Shown below, you can see how the new design harkens back to the original but is still a fresh take for today.
If you’re gonna geek out, GEEK HARD!
