"America's most wanted secret. The TPP is a multi-trillion dollar international treaty that is being negotiated in secret by the US, Australia, Canada, Japan, Mexico and others. This massive agreement has 29 chapters, of which 26 are still secret. It covers 40% of global GDP and is the largest agreement of its kind in history. The treaty aims to create a new international legal regime that will allow transnational corporations to bypass domestic courts, evade environmental protections, police the internet on behalf of the content industry, limit the availability of affordable generic medicines, and drastically curtail each country's legislative sovereignty. US Senator Elizabeth Warren has said "[They] can’t make this deal public because if the American people saw what was in it, they would be opposed to it." Over the last two years WikiLeaks has published three chapters of this super-secret global deal, despite unprecedented efforts by negotiating governments to keep it under wraps. The remaining 26 chapters of the deal are closely held by negotiators and the big corporations that have been given privileged access. The TPP is also noteworthy as the icebreaker agreement for the proposed 'T-treaty triad' of TPP-TISA-TTIP which would see TPP style rules placed on 53 nations, 1.6 billion people and 2/3rds of the global economy."

"A state-operated facility that allows one to communicate with the deceased: the Connect Center"
Year 2030. With Japan's recent advancements in information science and neuroscience, human memories can now be saved and recorded. The technology is referred to as "e-Memory."
However, due to the rapid increase in the number of crimes using the e-Memory technology, the government has introduced strict regulations on human memory data.
In essence, the government now holds a monopoly on all human memory data.
The recording of still-living humans was forbidden, and the e-Memory technology was only to be used on the deceased, giving rise to the establishment of "Connect Centers." These state-owned and operated facilities allowed one to call and communicate with the dead.
These "Connect Centers" allowed people who were still in a period of bereavement to cope with their loss by talking with their recently deceased loved ones.
The protagonist, Kusuhara Hiroki, is a college student struggling with suicidal impulses after the sudden passing of his close childhood friend, Mizunashi Sorano.
Her memories were to last only until August 26—a mere four more days. Kusuhara teams up with his friend, Amamiya Kakeru, in an attempt to steal Mizunashi Sorano's memories from the server where they were stored.
In the midst of this, the two discover the secret of the Connect Centers, and are suddenly embroiled in the fight taking place behind the scenes."

"Brilliant Shadows is the tale of two best friends, a necromancer and a paladin, who knew they were destined to be together... right?
Now that we are on the final stretch of Brilliant Shadows, we're looking for a bit of funding to purchase music and finish up the last bit of art for the game.
Overall, there is an astounding lack of variety and diversity in the world of mainstream gaming. Gender, race, and sexuality are often not present in modern games or eroticized when they are.
Brilliant Shadows will attempt to break this paradigm by featuring a lesbian protagonist along with a slew of supporting characters that run the gamut in terms of both ethnicity and sexual orientation. "

"Starlight Vega is a fantasy comedy visual novel (an interactive fiction game) with GirlxGirl romances.
The first night exploring the upstairs study in her grandfather's old house, Aria accidentally frees a flirtatious demon girl named Lyria, who spent the past 50 years in a stone. The two become attached via a "Lifestone", which means Aria can't go far from Lyria, and vice versa. This gets quite awkward when Aria tries to go about (what's left of) her daily life.
To complicate things, the book she and her friend Melody also found that night seems to have ancient magic. Melody offers to see if the book can separate the link, however it isn't exactly in English, and the demon girl isn't keen on helping. Lyria's smart-mouthed servant, Sid, soon shows up, apparently having been searching for his Master in the human realm. Aria begrudgingly agrees to let the duo stay in her home.
Will Aria get caught up in Lyria's flirtatious behavior… or wonder if she has an ulterior motive? Will she stay friends with Melody or become something more?
"Starlight Vega" is an interactive story-based fiction available on PC, Mac, and Linux. Six different endings are obtainable through your choices made throughout the game."

Watching the epic story of America's worst financial crisis unfold will be fascinating.
We are working together with acclaimed Canadian illustrator Paul Rivoche who illustrated Amity Shlaes' graphic novel about the Great Depression The Forgotten Man.
He drew the branding image for our film. And the more money we raise, the more of Rivoche's great illustrations and animations we can add to the film.
The real cause of the financial crisis is not what most people — and perhaps you — think it is.
Government and most of the media blamed the financial crisis on the financial industry and in the end on the free market system itself.
But the diagnosis is wrong: Although banks made lots of bad mistakes, they did not cause the financial crisis.
It was government affordable-housing policy — CRA regulations, HUD, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac — that caused the crisis.
And because the diagnosis is wrong, the prescription is wrong — the cure is worse than the disease.
The Dodd-Frank Act of 2010 doubles down on the old, disastrous policies.
Dodd-Frank is poison for the American economy: the American economy will never be the same.
A tremendously powerful new agency has been created: the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. It is unaccountable, has no oversight and is not dependent on Congress for funds.
And it's in the process of degrading the credit scoring system that protects Americans from undue risk.
The Obama administration is shaking down banks and is forcing them into settlements that will pay out huge amounts of money to favored activist groups — the same groups which had fought so successfully for the risky loans that caused the crisis.
The Obama administration is not letting the financial crisis go to waste: they are using it to justify lawless policies that are leading America into the next — and even greater — crisis."
The Enemies Within zooms in on the best kept secret of modern politics. Almost no one is aware of the fact that fewer than 20,000 U.S. communists, socialists and extreme progressives are able to influence the politicians, and even write the laws that control the lives of over 300 million Americans.
What We Need
We need a minimum of $100,000 to get us started and we will get some folks to match funds. Our full budget is $400,000. This production will take about 1 year from start to completion. It will take thousands of man hours for research, filming, and distribution.
Your contribution will allow us to dedicate a full year into making a high quality film that will change minds and motivate people to get involved and take this country back from the left.

"The human race is near to its extinction by an alien species (known as the 'Scorchers') with which it wasn't able to communicate. As a last resort, earth alliance sent a legion of 'Names' (genetically engineered soldiers with obedience over fear) to a secluded area of the galaxy from where the attack was originated. Leto, a woman with genetically leadership skills, is displaced as leader after the first anarchist riot in the fleet, when early defeats destroy the seemingly unbreakable morale of the Names. She will find a link with aliens as she fights, in a war where she could be assassinated by anyone, even her own people. This will transform Leto in an invincible soldier, who will defeat fiercest soldiers under her command and to countless alien hordes. A strong story of realistic science fiction, not suitable for children or adults with no spirit of adventure."

"Hello Everyone, Kenji Itoso here. Thank you very much for taking a look at my new project. Before we get to that though, I would like to introduce myself to you. Throughout my career, I have produced and directed live action films, music videos and commercials, but the heart and soul of my work is with animation. I am also a university professor, where I teach and do research on film and video techniques. I learned the art of animated film direction studying under Hayao Miyazaki of STUDIO GHIBLI and Satoshi Kon of MADHOUSE. From that experience I had hoped to one day bring to life an animated film with my own vision for the world. Not stopping there, I wanted to rethink the whole process of animated film production, so I started jumped in feet first to create my one man original work, COLUBOCCORO.
There were many obstacles that had to be overcome for sure, but with a little help from my friends, I managed to get about 22 minutes down on film. COLUBOCCORO won awards at film festivals throughout Japan, and was also screened at the Cannes International Film Festival and many other film festivals around the world..."
