Godspeed is Olan Rogers' new animated sci-fi odyssey

A new animated series appears on the horizon: it is Godspeed, the new work by Olan Rogers. Below is info and trailer a few days after the premiere.
Godspeed follows the journey of Iris, a young woman, and her adorable karaoke-bot sidekick named Bowie as they navigate the desolate landscape and abandoned homes of their crumbling world. Her path takes an unexpected turn when they stumble upon a mysterious broadcast that holds the key to their escape. To follow the message, she must survive a planet-ending storm.

The author and executive producer is Olan Rogers, the father of the animated series Final Space (Netflix, 3 seasons - 36 episodes), who together with the Oscar-nominated executive producer Rosa Tran (Anomalisa, Robot Chicken) and the director Ben Bjelajac (Final Space) brought this new project to life with animations created by their new animation studio Lightfold.

"Animation is an art form Iíve completely fallen in love with and to see this industry over the past few years get almost completely gutted is heartbreaking," said Rogers. "These are our stories being thrown away. I get it, itís business, but to all of us, to me, it's personal. There has to be a different way to do all of this, and instead of sitting around talking about it, we decided to do something. Lightfold's mission is to take creatives to new levels they only ever have dreamt of while also protecting them and their stories."

After a successful fundraising campaign on Kickstarter, with private funds and the talents of at the time out-of-work animation creatives, this new project is now seeing the light and will premiere on 15 Decemberon the author's YouTube channel [link].
