We are all programmed. Some are programmed to be athletes. Some are programmed to be politicians. Some are programmed to be teachers.

I was programmed to be an artist.

My name is Kodjo Somana and I am an independent filmmaker in Columbus, Ohio. I've always dreamed of directing a project this big - ever since I was in middle school - and watching "Programmed Series: Aznek" become reality is truly a dream come true.

We have assembled a strong team to bring this story to life. My team and I have been working hard to get this project started, but we need your help to finish it. We are in need of funds that will be put towards production for the first film Programmes Series : Aznek.

Your donations can help support not just a project of passion, but a film that we truly believe can make waves. We would be honored and humbled to have you join us on this journey!

 Logline: A secret organization of aliens are using their own technology to program humans in order to over throw governments around the world and obtain global dominance. That is if five escaped prisoners don't stop them first.

 Synopsis: Aliens are slowly taking over the human race. Bodies are being programmed and sent out to different parts of the world to be manipulated. During the operation, the system is infected with a virus and five bodies escaped. The secret organization, “Aznek”, is now at risk of being exposed to world. They must search for the five bodies, known as the failed programs. The five failed programs were corrupted, they don’t remember much about themselves or the lives they lived before. After escaping from “Aznek” they lack knowledge of what they were programmed to do and what they are capable of. The only way to learn more about who they are is to find each other.
