Ghost Source Zero is proof that when you crowdfund projects…something bad ass can come from it.
Produced by Planet Nerd Rage Productions and written by legendary comic scribe Larry Hama, Ghost Source Zero racked up $66, 843 on Kickstarter in 2014. The end result is an utterly unhinged, cyberpunk thriller that views like a high-powered love letter to Masamune Shirow, Neill Blomkamp, and Luc Besson. Trailer follows.
