MANIA™ - A Cutting Edge Mindful Entertainment Franchise A Project of Creative Visions Fiscal Sponsorship

What if super powers arose from mental illness?

MANIA™ is an epic new science fiction series set in the near future where the clashing of advanced technology and human psychology lead certain individuals to realize super powers from their mental disorder. We are in production on our first graphic novel, MANIA: Infancy, which is comprised of six dynamic comic book issues. The first three issues The Shift, The Light, and The Faces are OUT NOW! We require financial support to launch a powerful targeted marketing campaign to reach a global audience, and ultimately finish the last three issues (The Flames, The Child, and The System) of MANIA: Infancy.

The movement behind MANIA joins many other passionate individuals and organizations devoted to 'end the stigma' behind mental illness and offers an innovative solution to the problem. Our creative and layered storytelling approach delivers messages like "Differences are Your Strengths" which are encoded in the Art which we call Mindful Entertainment. Through the artistic intent of Mindful Entertainment, MANIA will be a facilitator of leading edge ideas, energetic inspiration, and fresh perspectives that will empower the mental health of our audience. We truly believe that when an individual no longer views their deficits and weaknesses from a negative perspective, but instead from a positive light, their whole reality shifts and the planet is uplifted. We all have super powers ready to be unleashed.


We have devoted a lot of passionate time and energy to create a strong foundation for a franchise with unlimited potential. We have plans in the ready for more graphic novels, films, tv shows, video games, VR experiences, and MORE. MANIA has been designed from the start as TRANSMEDIA platform which will utilize multiple mediums to tell a wildly entertaining and congruent narrative that will enthrall audiences all around the world. Your donation ensures we can grow and expand our work at an accelerated rate until we hit our point of sustainable success.
