Calling all cars!

We have decided to improve the whole experience of the FB presence while we are looking for support to get the movie made. So we are starting a Make The Spellsinger Movie Campaign.  We ask all of our true fans, the people who have connected with SPELLSINGER, remember the story well,  know all of the characters and want it on the screen more badly  than I wanted C3PO from Santa when I was Eight!  We want these true diehard fans to connect with us by posting videos of themselves on our page and telling us WHY SPELLSINGER SHOULD BE MADE INTO A MOVIE!

We fully intend to use these interactions to promote our film in every way that we can, to show people that SPELLSINGER has what it takes to be a hugely successful franchise.

It starts with you.  We have made our commitment and now we need one from you.

And yes.  There will be shirts!!!

Until next time

Rock On!

If Rolling Stone Magazine made a fantasy movie THIS would be it

Spellsinger has all of the qualities that encapsulates the Rolling Stone Magazine EXPERIENCE

It’s Adventurous.  The world, the fighting, the performances, the magic and of course riding down the river on a Dragons back!

Jon Tom, Flor and Talea are Hip and have real attitude and personality.

There are elements that irreverent

All of the fantasy elements are Funky and so is the magic of Spellsinging. I mean the first song is Purple Haze.  How much funkier can it get?   This film is  a real fantasy performance experience, not just another blase quest that have been done to death.  What makes it tick is the spiritual connection between reverent popular culture and magic.  Music is magic as we know it.  Performance by nature can be magical but creating  magic  from music?  THAT’S  COOL.

This man’s connection with his music and he ain’t no Hendrix to begin with, is all that stands between this world being taken over by an evil with a secret weapon from Earth.

So we are moving forward by incorporating all of these thoughts into our branding from today.  We are creating an experience that will reconnect people with this amazing story that held our fascination and will continue to.

Rock on!


The way back IS the way forward.

Have you ever felt like you were really close to nailing a presentation only to have it blown out of the water by an experienced Hollywood executive?

This happened to us this week when we presented our SPELLSINGER pitch to a very prominent executive in LA who has been around for years.

Thankfully we saw this person before we went anywhere else.

The executive was scathing and attacked everything from the pitch to the illustrations and the whole concept.  Nothing was spared.  Not one good thing was said about months and months of hard work,done by a heap of people.

At first I was really angry.  I felt that they just didn’t even care about the project.  It was like fronting up to a talent show unprepared with a terrible act and getting gonged. And a score of minus one as an afterthought.

But then I realised that there might be some truth to what had been said.  After all, this person had experience and they have had their own fair share of rejection.  Was I being precious?  Of course I was.

This experience was an amazing wake up call for us.  We decided to go back to the root of Spellsinger and what it was that really attracted us to the franchise from the moment that I read it.  I looked beyond the cool story and the unlikely group and the elements that the executive called cliché and daggy.

Then I found the music and it dawned on me that.

Spellsinger is MORE than just another fantasy adventure.  It’s a roving Rock and Roll concert.  The music of this creature is it’s life blood.  Its Soul.  Music is what makes it work, so it must be embraced, grabbed, nurtured and adored.  It’s a spiritual baby.  Music makes SPELLSINGER a performance.

The music, the spellsinging is what captured my imagination, the ability to create magic through music.  Through performance.  Think about all the incredible guitar performances from the likes of Keith Richards, Jimmy Page, Van Halen, Angus Young, Kurt Cobain and of course Hendrix and how their souls connected to us through the music.  Add magic to the equation and that’s what really makes it for me.

“It’s as if his brain knew which of the words that catalysed the strange elements…”

So folks we are on our way back from the drawing board.  We have started with the Duar and have done some basic designs that make it look like the mother of all guitars, a living instrument which is what sets it apart from the rest of the guitar family!

Stay tuned!
