Please welcome Tom Freeman, creator of the Dark Moon comic series. This indie comic is a Sci-Fi / Horror series that starts on a distant moon, with seven survivors of a disaster finding out they are not alone.
The Dark Moon team will be offering its first three comics, which make up the intro to our story, as a free motion comic series that can be watched online or on tablets and phones via the Madefire app.
The series explores the combination of comic art and music. The motion comics each have original music and sound FX. In addition, Dark Moon offers a series of music videos that combine music and art. Here are two of those:
Dark Moon is completely indie, and Tom Freeman has self-funded the series and offered everything (except the physical products) for free, because he wanted fans of Sci-Fi and Horror to have something awesome to experience without asking for anything back. He cites this as having been a huge help in gaining some great fans, and now the Dark Moon crew is looking for a publisher to take this story to the next level.
In this hour, we talk with Tom about the Sci-Fi / Horror genre, adding music and motion to comics, and the weirder creators in comics and film.
