Hello there – long time no see ;-o
As you might have noticed (and some of my wonderful blog-friends did, as they told me 🙂 ) it´s been two month of silence in this space.
I´ve been too busy with other things unfortunately, but today I´ll share a vision of mine with you: The Faunians on Film!
Just a few days ago, I finished (within a very short timeframe) and presented a short but snappy presentation within a business course I am taking, where we could choose any topic we liked to give it a go… “Ha, great!” I thought, “Perfect occasion to talk about my Faunians! What could be more fun to seriously put up a concept of how to make an animation film of my Faunians – and play around a bit visually by placing my creatures in their appointed scenery?!” You must know that in the meantime, by and by, the story has evolved more and more, and the idea of really finding a way to bring Francis, Lucius, Jamie Finn and all the others to life just won´t let go… so there will be some serious script-writing going on and other plans I cannot really talk about right now…
…just one hint: you will see George & Mac (originally Georgio and Massimo) in a scenerie very symbolic as they are the founders of Faunia who built the city from “scrap” , and you´ll see Lucius in front of his Pub where he as the mysterious newcomer to Faunia starts his business but somehow seems much more interested in the cellars of the old building…a long forgotten treasure?!
When it comes to the other character, those of you who have spent time with me in Faunia from the start know of Francis, the little shy faun and hero of the story, his older sister Elka (both pictured in the forest where they were lost and saved by Faunians to then be adopted by George and Mac) , the cool musician Jamie Finn, Dougal the friendly waterdragon, Ira the waterfairy, Miles the mighty mayor and Louis his assistant plus his cute little son Ringo, the teachercreatures Woodys and one of my greatest loves Tripodd the clumsy schooldragon – and then finally Mortimer Crapshaw the grocer and his assistant Rufus, the coati (and best buddy of Francis).
Sure enough, there will be some more creatures but all in good time. For the business course, I put up a quick Power Point Presentation which was very well received (and for the audience, I also arranged a “meet & greet” session with Miles and Tripodd – those two enjoyed the attention like real Rockstars ;-D ).
I hope you enjoy the little Faunian movie clip…
