Now Crowdfunding: Mythica 5: The Godslayer

Posted by Rampant Coyote on May 25, 2016

The final chapter of the indie-made Mythica fantasy film series is now in crowdfunding. Like the funding for the previous films, the movie has already been shot. This crowdfunding phase is for post-production goodness: Visual effects, sound, music, that kind of thing.

The upcoming film features Kristian Nairn (Hodor from Game of Thrones), and of course Kevin Sorbo.


If you’ve seen any of the other films, then you probably already know whether or not you are interested in being a backer.

Of course, it’s a little funny backing film 5 when film 4 isn’t technically out yet. I’ve seen it, but I don’t have my copies yet. So far, I still believe that Mythica 3: The Necromancer is the best of the series so far, but of course I’m told this one is going to blow them all away in an epic conclusion.

It’s been interesting to me how the movies have been consistent in character (although, since the first three were filmed at the same time, that makes sense) but have had very different styles. The first movie – A Quest for Heroes – was kind of the cute and very well-done if somewhat generic D&D style fantasy adventure. A quest to save the priestess from some bad guys, battling orcs & ogres & stuff. The second one, The Darkspore, was more epic in scope, and got a little bit darker. It was more of a little indie Lord of the Rings-style quest. The third movie, The Necromancer, was dark, gritty, personal, and a little heartbreaking. The fourth – The Iron Crown – was part comedy. It was a little over-the-top, a rollicking adventure that was fun & lighthearted to balance out the dark angsty  feel that had grown from the last two films. It ends with a tough choice being made. Or maybe a couple of tough choices. And in spite of the lightheartedness, it sets things up to be in a pretty rough place for the final film.

I am very pleased with the series. It’s not for everyone. While it is amazing what they’ve pulled off on such a small budget, these are still small-budget films. There’s some inherent cheesiness. But a lot of my friends – especially the D&D players – have also really enjoyed them. I can’t wait to see the final installment this fall.

So if you are interested in being a backer, getting an early release of the film (maybe signed?), getting your name in the credits, whatever…  here’s your chance:
