THE BOOK OF MOJO IS LIVE!
The Book of MOJO started out as a self published webcomic. It’s an Urban Fantasy story set in the near future that follows an unlikey duo, “Creepy,” a 13 yr old runaway witch, and Mojo, a 7 foot tall enchanted statue. Creepy wants to learn the deepest secrets of magic to reunite with her father, and Mojo has an unknown, dark origin that threatens both of them.
We were inspired to animate this story after completing a CG teaser for the comic book last year. Many of it’s viewers were not only excited by the premise, but also by the story’s female lead, a strong young person of color. As an African American father of two girls, imagery in the media is very important to me, and diversity is something I’m excited to address in a fun and entertaining way.
We are crowdfunding an animated short based on the first issue as proof of concept for an original series or feature film. We are industry professionals with decades of combined experience at studios like Pixar, Disney, Dreamworks and Blue Sky Studio and we’re passionate about pushing the boundaries of American animation. We don’t think we’re alone. We believe that with your support, we can prove that there is a strong fan base that wants to see more of this world and its characters.
The Book of Mojo tells the story of Creepy, a 13 year old runaway getting by on her wits and her limited training in witchcraft. Separated from her father by a tragic accident, she seeks to master the secrets of magic in hopes of one day reuniting with him. Her life is turned upside down when a powerful magical artifact literally drops into her life.
The artifact, a 7 foot tall enchanted statue she calls Mojo, has no recollection of who or what it is, or where it came from. When Creepy agrees to help look into its origins, mostly for her own selfish reasons, it isn’t long before Mojo’s secret past threatens them both…
