The Killgirls: Teen Assassins is an unapologetically adult animated series that fuses dark satire and gritty storytelling, all set against the backdrop of a corrupt 1990s metropolis. Inspired by iconic films like Léon: The Professional, Desperado, The Godfather, and even Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The series aim to blend the over-the-top violent and dynamic styles of action-directors such as John Woo, Robert Rodriguez, and Quentin Tarantino, in a mix of Spaghetti Western grit and Neon Noir aesthetics.
Why Animation? Animation is our secret weapon. It offers a surreal palette that real-world filming just can’t capture, allowing us to dial up the action and thematic weight to 11. Our violent, stylized and exaggerated visuals act as a counterbalance to the series’ darker themes, such as human trafficking and exploitation. This creates a unique lens for the viewer to engage with challenging subject matter without drowning in it.
What Sets Us Apart? Toss out any preconceived notions about adult animation—The Killgirls is a different beast entirely. Forget slapstick humor or sci-fi clichés. We’re serving you raw, visceral storytelling focused on the resilience of the human spirit and the unbreakable bonds formed in the bleakest of conditions. Driven by deep, evolving characters, The Killgirls digs into hard-hitting themes without pulling punches. This ain’t a kid’s cartoon; it’s a gritty, high-stakes narrative that dives into growth, drama, and the complexities of a makeshift family formed under fire.
Technology, Methods and The Future of Virtual Filmmaking
We’re on the frontier of indie virtual filmmaking, tapping into powerhouse platforms like Unreal Engine and Blender—tools accessible to all for free, not just AAA studios or big production companies. Our toolkit extends even further, streamlined by AI to eliminate tedious animation processes. With apps like Metahuman Animator, Live Link and Move.AI, we’ll bring authentic emotion to our characters through motion- and performance capture, all achievable with just a couple of iPhone cameras. And guess what? You don’t need a high-end rig to make it all happen. Advanced tech is now within reach, even on budget-friendly yet powerful computers. This democratization of technology is the backbone of The Killgirls allowing us to focus on what really matters: telling a kickass story.
