Animated Web Series – In Development
With North of Now Films
Based on the web comic “White Ninja” from Scott Bevan and Kent Earle
Based on the highly successful web comic of the same name, White Ninja follows the day-to-day adventures of our intellectually restricted and pain impervious protagonist as he interacts with turtles, peanuts and everything and anything else operating on the same mental level as himself.
White Ninja is an animated, absurdist comedy series and is the first full-length series designed to live on the Vine platform. Each episode finds our hero on a new adventure that combines the irreverence and surrealism of Monty Python’s Flying Circus with the crude, bizarre animation style of Don Hertzfeld. The series is “gag-a-day”, allowing each episode to stand on it’s own or be enjoyed through binge watching. White Ninja is at times poignant, often hilarious and always ninja.
