PRISONER OF THE MIND is a neo-noir thriller 16 years in the making. The story is set in the near future of New York, the unforgiving city. On the outside the city looks a little different.

Below are a series of one of a kind NFT art that was created using original hand made drawings from the graphic novel, inked, and animated. Some of this artwork was created for the graphic novel animated trailer. The unlockable content is a digital copy of the first issue of Prisoner of the Mind.

Quantum Enigma is a much larger creative project than what you see here. It is the culmination of nine years of work. Check out the award winning teaser trailer above that was created for this project.

A graphic novel will be published next year featuring a complete story and animation. 



The scope of work on this project is enormous, which features working props, robotics, costumes and hundreds of drawings and digital artworks and a short film. 


To Learn More About This Project Click on the Links Below

Storyboards: Here we will continue to bring storyboard thumbnails sketches and changes for the live action trailer.


Concept Art: A lot of interesting art leading up to the finished ideas. Multiple changes are made frequently to work out problems and detail of the props and effects that we are trying to create. We will continue to drop new art here all the time.


Props, Animatronics and Practical Effects: This is the good stuff that takes so long to make. After we sketch it all down, it is s trial and error process using various materials to create a practical effect and prop. We'll try to update this area as much as possible.


Behind the Scenes: This is some behind the scenes shots from production of the trailer and more.


Film Festivals: During this process we are submitting our teaser and soon to be trailer to various film festivals which are responding very well to our work.


If you've waited this long, it will be worth it. Check back in for more details soon.
