Blossom Detective Holmes: The Animated Mini-Series


vudu.com

As of March 2018 Blossom Detective Holmes has been funded for 4 out of 6 intended episodes. It far exceeded its primary goal of $60k and is well on its way to everyone by next year. In case you haven't heard about it: 


"Blossom Detective Holmes is a first of its kind independent animated mini-series filled with suspense, mystery, and action.  Not a lot of anime is produced in America, so Blossom is taking the first steps to make that happen!  The goal of the show is to introduce a new genre into mainstream  American animation that will be based on mature topics such as crime, murder, and serious drama. This genre of animation is very uncommon in animated shows, and you can be a trendsetter by supporting Blossom Detective Holmes and bringing it to market"!

It started as a Kickstarter with a single pilot episode; in the same way Studio Trigger created Little Witch Academia. Produced and directed by Steve Ahn; Steve is an artist and director known for his works on DreamWorks Voltron Legendary Defender, Nickelodeon’s The Legend of Korra, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy animated series, and much more.  


"I'm a director who craves to tell a story in a form of animated content. I always have loved animation. In thinking of my future, I can't really imagine myself doing something else other than what I'm doing today" - Steve Ahn


The story of the pilot begins as Skylar Holmes and Jamie chase after a burglar in the middle of the night in Stockholm, Sweden. During the initial chase, another unexpected gunshot interrupts them and their first case begins. Selfie with a Strange Intruder! 






Skylar Holmes is a cute detective girl who has the unique ability of an enhanced sense of smell, almost hound-like.  When she sniffs, she can recall a memory and uncover the object, person, and location that had the same scent.

Jamie is Skylar’s best friend, and always carries around a unique camera. Other than taking photo of evidence, this camera teleports people who ever takes a selfie with it to wherever Jamie imagines.

The pilot episode is well done and will definitely leave you wanting to know "Whodunnit" and more about the characters involved. The pilot episode looks like a pilot, but now that it's completely funded it will be exciting to see what fully finished episodes look like. It is great to see Kickstarters for shows like this happen because it once again proves that there are more ways, especially now, to get your work out there. You don't need to have a studio or even Kickstarter, you just need to keep pushing forward with your dream.
