Strowlers is the latest and most ambitious project from Zombie Orpheus Entertainment (ZOE). In a world much like ours, but where magic exists and is regulated as strictly as plutonium, the Strowlers believe that magic is for everyone. Now, from the fringes of society, they’re creating global communities of mutual support with the goal of building a better world. The initial offering from the series has been well-received thanks to its storytelling, production values and incorporation of diverse viewpoints. This is a series that aims to tell the stories that are all too often left behind.
And it needs your help.
Like all of ZOEs shows the series is fan supported and distributed directly by the creators. The Kickstarter for the latest offering of three new stories (an interlude short film, a full episode and a novel) is, unfortunately, struggling. With 7 days to go, it is $14,000 / £10,000 short of funding its relatively modest goal (given the scope and professional production values) of $26,000. It’s a story that deserves to continue so if you’re interested or on the fence then consider pledging, you’ll only be charged if the campaign succeeds so there is no need to wait and see if it does. Every pledge, even for a single dollar, helps.
If you’re new to Strowlers and want to know more then you’re in luck – the series is available to stream from multiple platforms. For those with Amazon Prime subscriptions you can stream it from here (US link) or from here (UK link). Don’t subscribe to Amazon Prime? Then you’re in luck, as the series is available to stream for free from The Fantasy Network, ZOEs digital distribution platform.
