Next Guardian: The Inaugural Series

Imagine waking up from a deep sleep to a world of chaos. What do you do? Where do you go? Who do you trust? Welcome to Next Guardian the inaugural series of NG.

In this series viewers follow Taboo, who woke up in the midst of civil unrest and now must navigate the Neo-State of New Sanctum. Along the way he’ll find both incredible friends and foes, mentors and rivals, and an entire culture devoted to his downfall.

Every character is crucial to not only his survival —but New Sanctum’s future. They each play a role in creating and connecting civilization.

Meet the Founders

Next Guardian was born out of a simple game Ethan Kostouros and Justin Jackson created while bored during class in high school. Soon this game turned into the building of complex character arcs and robust sketches. Between this time the two have grown a friendship that rival Biden and Barack. Now today, almost 7 years later the duo have turned their simple game and budding bromance into a next generation boutique studio that delivers animation solutions from sketching to storytelling.
