Hi there!

The Into:
My username is Finchzero, but you can call me Ty.
I live in Australia and am the creator of "Millennium Exile"; an original work which I have dedicated 5 years of my life (so far)
You will find little story information here however my characters would love a visit from you ;P

The Dream:
I intend to collect a sufficient amount of artwork, couple it with the stories plot and information and publish it professionally as a high end visual bible and present it to studio BONES in Japan.
Millennium Exile is privately funded (from my own pocket) and as such, I work a crappy retail job in order to pay for this project.
Granted there's no guarantee that all this time, money and hard work will pay off however I am confident in the story I have written, the characters I have created and the world they all live in. Millennium Exile is a labour of love and I intend to see it animated as a 64 episode series.

The Content:
You can find them in the "Millennium Exile" folder under gallery tab above.
I have designed all the M.E characters myself however several of Deviantart's greatest Anime artists are often commissioned by me to draw my designs.
These guys are so much more pro than me and it gives me more time to write the plots, details and story lines that won't make it here. (Sorry)
All artists are FULLY credited and their artwork is NOT sold collectively or individually in any manner, but merely presented as representations of the characters themselves.



I also do photography:…
Okay guys and gals, I don't often post Journal entries here (which i intend to amend) but I wish to get this Journal started with a quick catch-up.
If you haven't liked the Millennium Exile project yet on Facebook then you wouldn't have heard most of the current news surrounding MillEx.
I suggest you go and fix that now :P…

So...let's get into the news:


This has been a BIG year for the project as Donations to the project have been flowing through hard and fast with many amazing fans donating....some a few dollars, others a LOT, either way it all counts and is VERY appreciated.
As MillEx still needs to be pitched at a studio to be green-lit for production, I have kept it off Crowdfunding sites as many require an actual product upon reaching the target goal.
Also for crowdfunding to be successful, you must pretty much pitch your concept and idea right then and there, which is fine if you are the one actually creating the end result.
When it comes to studio's picking up titles however, many wont show too much interest with most of the plot already out on the Internet.

This has indeed made it more difficult to receive funding however....this has actually made funding possible from the hardcore fans who like the designs and want to see it become something great.
I always knew this project was going to be difficult but 2015 has been the year for some amazing funding from you guys.


Millennium Exile has garnered some attention from an Emmy award winning director in Hollywood  who has been in contact with me and offered some wonderful insight and support to the project.
He also set me a challenge,  make a demo reel consisting of stills, dubbing and music in the form of a trailer but without spending ANY of my own money.
This means, relying on fans and backers....
Mind you I have already put in several thousands of my own dollars into the project so far but the reason for this is because when pitching to a studio or even an individual for that matter, showing that people are willing to separate with their own money to support an idea is a VERY positive sign and will look all the better for the project's popularity.

Within 24 hours of making the announcement of a demo reel, it was about 90% funded!

Voice Actors!

Millennium Exile has been getting some awesome support from several big names in the American Anime dubbing world with some VERY big names already voicing main characters for the demo reel.
Unfortunately I  am not at liberty to mention names...mainly because the demo reel is not for public release but instead for studio pitching only.
What I can tell you however is that DA's one and only :icondanzzila: is the artists currently working on the demo reel.
Not too mention bands and audio engineers are already playing with several tracks for this also :p 

New Artists!
Millennium Exile warmly welcomes one of DeviantArt's best fantasy artists, :iconel-grimlock: to the fray.
Grimlock will be drawing the dragon designs for the project...keep an eye out for his artwork :) 


Well that just about wraps it all up, thank you for taking the time to read this and for those interested, donations are still open for anyone who wishes to contribute.
100% of donated funds go towards the project and your name gets published in the artbook that will be getting pitched to studio's in Japan!
Simply message me here or on the Facebook page for paypal info.

I'm also a student that you taught today, I asked about how you got the idea for the Mutated arm sword! =D
finchzero Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2015  Professional Filmographer
Ah nice man, yea it was fun teaching all you guys today...I hope you guys all enjoyed yourselves :) 
ReedenF Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2015
And that sword/scythe combined with those mutated hands looks so BADASS! A lot better then prototype

(And yes, I do remember that you made this before prototype and that you got the idea from Venom in the spiderman movie(s)

Nonetheless, the work that you and the other artists publish on here is AMAZING, and thank you for teaching/informing our class(es) about your anime series that is coming out (which I will probably watch even though I rarely watch anime)

Overall, thanks. =)
