Hearts of Titan is an independently made action-comedy animated series! 


The story revolves around three unusual young adults and a disgraced space prince on a path to unraveling an intergalactic mystery. Their suspicious full-ride scholarship is only the beginning to a much greater journey. As the story unfolds, our heroes are met with a cataclysmic chain of events containing magic, mayhem and cybernetic criminals.

We invite you on our journey to expand the project’s story!
With our proof of concept completed, Kappapon Studios is crowdfunding a 5-minute animated short within the Hearts of Titan series!


"What is the short about?"


Departure. Old memories are revisited during a transitory chapter of life. 
A glimpse into the lives of Elias, Kory and Damien before the events of the first episode. While they stand on the cusp of an unknown future, something is brewing with Ryan. 
For one reason or another, they prepare to leave for Boxlid University.



“Why crowdfund a short first before the first episode?”


Our team has spent years in the animation industry. We’ve worked on everything between films, shows, games and music videos. As a result, we have an intimate knowledge of much animation costs.
Hearts of Titan is our most ambitious project to date. As much as we’d love to reach our ideal financial goal and fund Episode 1- this is a huge undertaking. 

To ensure that our studio can bring this project to life while staying true to its vision, we’re starting small first.

This project is a love letter to cartoons—from blockbuster films to animation memes made on an artist's first drawing tablet. Inspired by early 2000s action cartoons and niche 2010s internet animation, Hearts of Titan is a story packed with fun! Furthermore, it delves into the themes of belonging, self-exploration, identity and young adult life.

The Prologue


"I was entrusted with unfathomable power."

Within the furthest reaches of space, a distant planet falls into chaos. Tragedy leads a young alien prince to flee his homeworld. During his final hour, Orion is bestowed a gift: The key to salvation. Fleeing the bloodshed, He has no option but to seek refuge. After finding an abandoned ship, Orion leaves with his world's last fragment of hope.  

Despite his best efforts... the gift was lost.



Reaching a new planet: Earth, Orion starts anew. With his species' innate ability to change forms, he learns to blend in as a human.  

There is no going back now.  

Leaving his past behind, he became "Ryan". 




A Prince, a Lover, a Clown and a Scholar.

How your money will be spent!


Animation is expensive, thankfully our studio has experience budgeting projects. After 4 years operating as a team, we have the skills to build a well-working system. This pie chart represents where funds will be allocated within the pipeline.

Edit

Kappapon Studios was started by 4 close friends, each located in different countries around the world. Our goal has always been to create fun original shows with the people we love. Working as a team, we've created various animated music videos and content for clients. In tandem, we began developing our first original project “Hearts of Titan”. Our goal was to develop a strong background in animation before focusing on independent endeavors. 

To bring "Hearts of Titan" to life, we each contributed out-of-pocket to fund the proof of concept. During it's production, we worked with a small team of talented artists to prepare this crowdfund.
However, our goal is to expand Kappapon and become a fully operating studio. Raising funds would allow us to open up applications to get production started. With that in mind, Kappapon is open to building a contact pool for interested artists. 

Meet the Kappapon Team!


We'd like to highlight the talented crew our studio worked with to bring this proof of concept to life!


Thank you to our wonderful music team!

Edit

Kappapon will always be a home for independently made content and Hearts of Titan is no exception.

 
As it stands, the creative industry is plagued with uncertainty while our livelihoods are being challenged. Creatives should be respected, not artificially replaced or undermined.

Crowdfunding through Backerkit allows us full control to maintain the project’s vision and integrity.

SHIPPING


DIGITAL FULFILLMENT
All Digital goods will be delivered via email! The fulfillment process will take place on the same timeline as physical rewards. To ensure transparency we will provide updates on digital rewards throughout their development. 

SHIPPING AND INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING:
Shipping fees will be calculated and collected through Backerkit after the campaign's end. This helps to verify the correct cost of shipping depending on your region.

Shipping unavailable in your country? We'd love to provide full access for international shipping. However, due to this being our first crowdfund, we'd like to tread carefully to ensure seamless reward fulfillment.  
Therefore, shipping will be limited due to the varying customs and regulations of each country.
Edit
We fully intend to see our production through regardless.  We're aiming to begin reward fulfillment Quarter 2 of 2025.
Your support will help expedite this process. In any collaborative project, there is always room for error. That being said, we will engage in monthly updates and progress reports so our supporters can remain confident in our production.  Your support means the world to us, and Kappapon Studios intends to communicate consistently and honestly throughout this process!
