Supa Pirate Booty Hunt: The Animated Series at WonderCon 2015

Supa Pirate Booty Hunt: The Animated Series at WonderCon 2015

Los Angeles, CA (March 31, 2015) - Steve Sievers, the creator of Supa Pirate Booty Hunt, the award winning animation series, will be available for signings at his booth at WonderCon 2015, where he will promote the new release of Supa Pirate Booty Hunt: The Documentary. Based on his hit animated show, the documentary follows the journey of Sievers bringing the series to life, from its early incarnations to the Award Winning program it has grown to become. MCTV will be distributing the documentary through iTunes, Comcast VOD, Google play, Vudu, Sony Playstation and Xbox channels beginning in April 2015. The film is already available for purchase on DVD on US Military bases across the country.

Following the story of Zack the Pirate and his trusty sidekick Daniel the Turtle, Supa Pirate Booty Hunt began as an sketch on Sievers college radio show. In the years since, it has become an animated series that has featured the work of several amazing artists, voice over legends, and multi-platinum musicians.  This includes Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants), Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine, Tania Gunadi (Transformers Prime), Spike Spencer (Evangelion), Neil Kaplan (Starcraft II), Greg Eagles (The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy), the band 3OH!3, and more. Additionally, the series and its characters have been used in promotions and events for Music Saves Lives, a charity that encourages blood donations and has collected over 1 million units of blood nationwide.

Sievers, born and raised in Maryland, has always been a fan of animation, music, films, and comic books, making him feel right at home at WonderCon. As he now lives in the Anaheim area with his wife, Chelsea, and their daughter Angela, Sievers is happy to be able to present his documentary to its fans as well as hopefully a new audience. “I always loved Behind the Music, and to be able to present Supa Pirate in that same style and manner makes me really proud of all that we’ve accomplished with the series and what we’re looking to do with it in the future.”  Sievers is currently developing an animated feature film for Supa Pirate Booty Hunt, eyeing a Fall of 2018 release.

Sievers will be promoting his documentary at WonderCon by signing free film posters at booth #1170 on Friday April 3rd, from 3 - 5 PM and Saturday April 4th, from 5 - 7 PM
