“So I mentioned to you guys in the video, that we’re going in a new direction for the character design, and I’d thought I’d share that with you today. After trying several different style we decided to go with  the esteemed Jesse Aclin’s designs. I’m a huge fan of Jamie Hewlett, I really liked how much attitude and character  he is able to squeeze into his  designs. Jesse took that idea and RAN with it and I love the results! 

We’re really happy with the results, and the animation tests have been great.
We got the look!” - Everette Downing


“Book of Mojo” started life as a comic book by Everett Downing. When he recruited his colleagues to create a trailer for the first book, it seemed a natural fit as an animated series. Thus Alchemy Engine was born.

Alchemy Engine currently consists of 25 past employees of major studios such as Pixar Animation Studio, Dreamworks Animation, and Blue Sky Studios. Disillusioned by the current paradigm of American animation, Alchemy Engine strives to tell stories featuring characters they feel are under-represented in today’s animation market. Committed to providing a different kind of content, they have banded together to take creative risks in producing compelling stories for young-adults.

They are at 20% funding so far. Nice! They could go further with your help! If you can’t pledge, share this with someone who you think would! Every cent counts, and you can get some cool rewards for backing, too!
