Back in 2010 I was so close to getting a wonderful film idea made into a full fledged CGI film. It was named "Jewel of a Thousand Stars."
As most of you know and are probably still going through our economy was tanked by a bunch of greedy Wall Street banks and types and most money went away, as well as jobs, peoples homes, credit, and so on.
Well, my funds for making the movie dried up, but I never stopped loving the characters and still love them very, very much.
The Fairy Lights is an attempt on my part to at least get part of the movie out to the public. It is focused as a picture book, and loaded with very high quality CGI images...computer generated images...that I designed over the course of years of research and invention.
The story is simple, but great for adults and children. Children will love all the beautiful images and the cute characters.Adults will love the truth of the message and the warmth of it.
The focus of the story is on friendship and what matters the most. Trusting one another and loving one another despite our differences.
It's still on sale at Amazon for a very reasonable price of $2.99.
If you haven't visited my bookstore yet, you're probably missing the fact that I now have three paperback novels for sale now there: Moriarity: Infinite Worlds, Infinite Choices; Journey to the Center of the Earth: The Advent; and The Baker Street Adventures.
All are beautifully illustrated, glossy books that feel so good in your hands when you're reading.
If you're like me, you probably love the smell of fresh paper in a book as well.
The Fairy Lights is a tale taken from The Adventures of Giddy and Gnobs. I have about five picture books in the works for this series. The Fairy Lights is a lovable, cute tale for children ages three to ten, with a great moral of friendship and its true value. My picture book is comprised of about forty CGI images, those are images I generated from my artwork on a computer. Most of the work was created in a 3D design program and polished in Photoshop, with a few other programs thrown in for other details as needed. It's about a year's worth of work, creating the characters and detailing their adventure. I loved doing it. It is part of a larger universe called "Jewel of a Thousand Stars," a CGI film I was producing back in the early two thousands before the crash of the economy swept all funding away. I wanted to share my work with parents out there, because I feel it's important to have heroes who are both lovable and open to learning. I owe my style to a combination of Doctor Seuss, Walt Disney, and a few other modern painters, whose names don't come to my mind at this moment.
