Sometimes for something to turn out extra cool, it needs to spend a little more time in the oven before being offered up for mass consumption. Get ready, dear reader! The time has come to sink your teeth into one tasty little monster-laden treat!
From the Press Release:
We here at Haig HQ are thrilled to announce that the much anticipated animated web TV series “Chadam” is now available! Brought to you by Warner Brothers and HD Films and written by Alex Pardee (“Bunnywith”), Chadam lives as the chosen one in the metropolitan island of Vulture City. His power of imagination is strong enough to physically change his world and possibly save it from evil. The series will find Chadam in a place of refuge where he and others have retreated to plan their attack against a serial killer known as Viceroy. “Chadam” is created using Unreal Engine 3, the technology that was also used in the ground-breaking video games Gears of War and BioShock.
Sid lends his voice to Simkin, a mutated figure made so by the evil Viceroy’s attempt to remove his imagination gland. Simkin was, however, able to escape and meet Chadam, who may just be the one person who could defeat Viceroy and rid the planet of him for good. Simkin becomes Chadam’s mentor, in that he shows Chadam he has the strength to defeat Viceroy.
Haig notes, “Voicing Simkin was an exercise in trying to establish the power of a character with my voice only, as opposed to using facial expressions and body language as I do in live-action. Even though I didn’t get to work with any of the other actors in person, I had a great time with Alex and the HD Films staff. It was a thoroughly wonderful experience, and I would do it all again in a second.”
Starring John Lanz in the title role, with support from Sid, Jeffrey Combs as Viceroy, Katey Sagal, Carl Weathers and more, “Chadam” is sure to expand your mind and widen your senses.
“Chadam” runs in ten episodes, which are up now on the Warner Brothers website. Follow this link to watch. As of now, the show is only viewable by those in the United States and no DVD plans are in place, but if you love what you see (or just want to see it!), please let Warner Brothers know by contacting them on their site and telling them you want your “Chadam”! This labor of love has been a long time coming, and we hope you enjoy the results.
