In 2001, in this strange country we call the Web, the first audio fantastico-medieval saga with a big parodical and humortistic tendancy :
The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk
It’s creator, the role player John Lang, alias Pen of Chaos (POC), invents with all plays an out of control universe built of witches, goblins and other adventurers with sharpened swords only for your entertainment and laughter.
In the heart of the fatal Dungeon of Naheulbeuk hides the statuette of Gladeulfeurah ! And like all statuette that respects itself, it is kept by an evil and powerful magician : Zangdar. In order to retrieve it, a group of adventurers will have to go through hundreds of nauseating corridors infested with « purulents » goblins, starving « orques », monstrous monsters and demonic demons…
Who has never dreamt to enter the Dungeon of Naheulbeuk, to see it’s evil wildlife and accompany the adventurers through the labyrinthic corridors ? Who has never wished to see the animated ogre eat a few goblins, the dwarf count his gold coins as well as panic about the ones of others, the thief fiddle the lock of a trapped door, the ranger check-out the elf’s breasts and the barbarian « bucuck » a chicken ?
The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk, the television series,
Promises a few good moments of pleasure, no ?
John Lang, the father foundator of the universe of Dungeon of Naheulbeuk was impatient to the idea of seeing his « Fanghiennes » adventures animated. Us too. The television series will allow its characters to take a new dimension.
Nomad Films, an Audiovisual Production society, has so initiated this series which will be composed of 52 episodes each 7 minutes, essentially inspired by the audio sketches of seasons 1 and 2 and the first volumes of the Comic Strip.
In collaboration with John Lang and Marion Poinsot, the drawer of the Comic Strip with whom we have worked on the development of the series. John and Marion have always understood our constraints, in particular technical , leaving us an extraordinary playground of creativity. Our sessions of validation always brought us and still, to one priority : make you laugh.
The idea was to stay faithful to the frame and tone who make the success of the saga, to respect the codes of the rich universe of the earth of Fangh all in adapting to the format of the animation.

So one day, John Lang proposed us to present our work which was done on the series at the salon Migennes Collector. The general enthusiasm that the projection got from the public convinced us on presenting you our project.
We have chosen to persue the production (even though the series isn’t at the moment completely financed) in order to not loose the energy of the team that works since 3 years, and we fight everyday to be able to lead to good the animation of the world of Naheulbeuk.
Why 95 000€ ? Because thanks to this sum of money, we will be able to finalize the total of the 3D designs (characters, sets and accessories). If you want to see the Elf naked, we have got to have the lake that comes with it ;) and the earth of Fangh without the village of Valtordu and it’s famous tree « aux pendus » wouldn’t be the same…
