It’s mid February already. It’s dark in the morning and summer is almost gone.
The blog went a bit quiet. But not from laziness. We are just snowed under. But we are and remain committed. I am that committed that I withdrew from a diploma course in animation that I was just accepted for so that I can focus on the project and at the job at hand.
Since the start of February (in fact since September) We have done nothing but work work and work and it’s paying off. Our goal this year is not massive. It’s definitely do-able and I have established a few in roads.
Over the last two weeks we had a few rejections from a few US Producers and a well known Aussie Producer but it’s not an issue and when you are in this game, rejection is a big part of your day. Believe me it’s not negative and if you can’t deal with a couple of thousand no’s then this business is not for you.
Besides, when it comes down to it, we are only interested in working with people who can see the potential in our project. If they don’t then it’s just a waste of time for everyone.
This week we moved it up a notch and have several groups of potential investors looking at material. The weeks ahead are very important.
Two weeks ago I asked Chris Wahl the amazingly talented illustrator to help us rebrand the image of Spellsinger. We researched influential guitarists from Slash to Jimmy Page, Hendrix, Keith Richards, Ritchie Sambora, and Van Halen.
We also looked at the Duar and the whole image of the series. Chris originally stuck faithfully to the book but the problem was that it never resonated with people. Thankfully Alan is not one of those authors that is precious. He has been very good to work with!
The new picture looks amazing.
We were so pleased that we nearly shared it with you tonight.
But we’re not. The first time that people will see the new picture will be at The Gold Coast Film Festival and Supernova. We will print off a couple of hundred and the first Gold Coaster that enters our Competition (see previous blog entries) will get a big signed poster!
So stay tuned. It’s getting interesting.
