I'm very proud to announce I'm the Director of the Castlevania Netflix series!  Check out the teaser trailer!



Me and my team at Powerhouse Animation Studios have been working extraordinarily hard to bring this franchise we all love to life and cannot be happier to finally share it with everyone!

OMG best game adaptation I've ever see, it's so beautiful, the fight animations are terrrific (omg that whip animation), the characters are amazing, and when Bloody Tears started to play was epic! You did a amazing job!

OMG! That was you!
I just wanted to tell you that the series you just did was amazing! I just finished watching the second season and I cried! Just cried! Never has a video game adaptation done that! You have done an awesome job! I hope to see more! We need more storytellers like you my friend. One who knows his material! I should tell you that I have not played Castlevania and have only watched the Lord of Shadows Game movies, so I am not exactly a fan but I still loved it! 
Thank you thank you thank you!

This is so good! I was wondering with CastleVania coming to Smash Bros. Could you connect the story to characters like Simon, Ritcher, and Alucard? They look great in that game by the way.

Do you plan to use classic music from the game?

Oh, and if this is the success I suspect it will be, please consider doing an animated series based on Castlevania Bloodlines.

I've seen this trailer making the rounds on my Facebook, but didn't watch it until I found out you were the director (through this journal).

Congrats! I'll have to check this show out

I get a really classic OVA vibe from the animations and color direction, and it already looks closer to Castlevania than LoS ever did. Well done, sir!

Oh don't worry at all, the show doesn't assume any prior knowledge of the games or anything, it's built for newcomers and fans alike!  :)

I'm afraid it's very rated R. :) Lots of violence and bad language (no nudity, though)

UPDATE: Just watched the first and second episode and immediately fell in love with it. Most definitely am going to draw fanart of Trevor Bellmont soon after I finish the series (he's so damn funny I love this guy!). Quick question, is he from the game? Did you base his personality on anyone in particular? Just curious on your directional character choice

Will get back to you when I finish the season XD

Trevor's from both Castlevania 3 and Castlevania: Curse of Darkness, with a small cameo experience in Symphony of the Night (as a reanimated boss enemy).  Trevor's design borrows a bit from his Curse of Darkness design but with some adjustments that have him sit somewhere between the Kojima design and the classic NES game feel.  Personality wise, though, he's pretty different from anything in the games, and that was pretty much all Warren Ellis' writing.  :)

Brilliant choice by Warren imo. His very first "ssshit..." had me laughing immediately. Please let him know his personality choice is very much appreciated by the audience.

Also, 'nother quick question (sorry I'm majoring in Creative Writing so I'm trying to get all the knowledge I can), will you be posting any storyboards of like deleted scenes or anything?

Bugged the hell out of me that he didn't push down the cartridge in the beginning, but the animation looks cool so I'll allow it.

Haha, I wish you could get a better look at him in the trailer!  He's pretty covered up for most of it, except for the one whipping shot that's pretty far away.  I'm sure some promo art will start coming out soon enough, though...  :)

The Producers decided that long before I came on board. :) Warren Ellis had a preliminary script written years ago! I'm bringing Warren's script to life, basically. :)
