From the Press Release:
Producer Skip Lipman of “Darkon” fame joins production team for Transmedia Web- series, “The Rangers”
Skip Lipman, the driving force behind the award winning, critically acclaimed, cult classic documentary “Darkon” joins the ‘The Rangers’ action/fantasy web series, already in development. He says, “my goal is to strive for excellence in The Rangers’ production quality, tell an epic story, and create a rich fantasy world that people can really get into and will want to explore for themselves,”.
The series chronicles the adventures of a special force of soldiers, known as Rangers, founded long ago by King Aenarion to guard the borders of the Kingdom of Olaran. Each web based episode will follow the adventures of the unit of Rangers led by Brander Noke, also known as Wolf, their new rookie Soren Fell and the rest of the close knit team. Together, they must help their world overcome its greatest challenge as they face their own personal demons. Can the Rangers save their world? Join them on the journey to find out.
The Rangers series creator, award winning filmmaker, Ron Newcomb is energized to have Skip on the team. “Skip has been a story teller his whole life. From early on roleplaying in his youth, to orchestrating epic large scale battles in Darkon. Skip brings the type of richness and depth into the story that fans want to see. They can just enjoy the story or dive deep and have adventures of their own.”
‘The Rangers’ is far from a stand-alone web-series. ‘The Rangers’ is a transmedia production with touchpoints across multiple platforms and formats for a dynamic and immersive fan experience. The plan is for fans to be able to watch on the web, interact via ‘The Rangers’ video game, apps, collectible card game, miniature battles, role-playing game and graphic novels. All elements are being developed in synergy with all aspects of the adventure. “The Rangers” transmedia approach is so that fans can choose to interact and control their experience through “The Rangers’ adventure, in a way that is uniquely their own.
