For now I tell my stories in the form of written words and illustration, but in time I wish to expand my available mediums to include animation, music, and interactivity as well. 🙂 Many of the story-ideas floating in my head are intended to be animated films or video games. Yes I said video games; that format has amazing storytelling potential… like a movie that you can play. How especially immersive! 😀
For now you can have a small peek at some of the film and game ideas I’ve got brewing. Go here for Movies and here for Video games. :3
As of the time I am writing this I haven’t yet found a means to access those mediums, but I am open to possibilities. A fantasy of mine has detailed a ‘dream team’ of creative people with whom I fall into collaboration. I’ve compared this team to a gang of super-heroes, each with a different skill that contributes invaluably, but the skills are more along the lines of composing music or voice-acting, for instance, rather than lightning from the fingertips or invisibility. ;P I have called this organization ‘Planet Soul’ before and also ‘Imagination’s Flightiest Escapade’, and I gave it a logo that looks like this:
…Even if that doesn’t end up sticking, it’s okay (though you can see the logo in some of my older art-watermarks and also on the spines of the Torian Tri-Point books). 😛
The team’s members/groups thereof are named for the skills they contribute… Storyteller for ideas and designs; Songmaker for soundtracks; Codemaster for programming; Lifebringer for animating; Hoardkeeper for accounting; Caretaker for ‘business matters’, Voices for character-acting; and Innovator for any spiffy new technology like more eco-friendly computers for example. xD I had made little logos for each ‘superpower’, and even now I still use the Storyteller icon around this site and occasionally elsewhere:
Like I said, I’m open to possibilities, so even if everything doesn’t fall into place EXACTLY like this that’s okay. 😛 But I do hope to see my brainchildren animated and/or interactive before too long, by some means or another. I am looking forward to the necessary elements coming into place, however it is that they come. ^_^
Hello out there… 😉
I’d lovelovelove to become one of the voices! Sadly, I live somewhere probably far, far away from you. Lots of these would fit for me though. By the way, “Imagination’s Flightiest Escapade?” Awesome. I could never think up something as awesome as IFE. Totally awesomeness defined.
Well, I’D lovelovelove to HAVE you as one of the Voices! 😀 Are you living anywhere near California? That’s where I’m stationed at the moment though I probably won’t stay here. 😛 ‘Imagination’s Flightiest Escapade’ is sort of the slogan/catch phrase of Planet Soul, in a sense. I’m glad you think it’s so awesome! 🙂
Nope, I don’t live in California. I’m in Southeast Asia. Plus, I’m really young. Below 13, actually.
mwahaha I know which country you are in now, YUSH! 😀 *manic grin*
I now want to make t-shirts for planet soul…..
T-shirts??? 😀 Haha, Lore, you’re ALREADY part of the team, aren’t you? ^_^
yes, yes I have. 🙂
*eyes jobs and counts how many I could do*
I could happily be a storyteller, songmaker, lifebringer, voice, or innovator. xD
hmm. I got my webcam to stop editing the sound it was recording and my voice instantly sounded a million times better. Want me to send you a recording? 🙂 I still won’t sound quite the same but… *shrugs*
Although I think my parents would be more accepting if you had a skype and we did a vid or voice call, but I can try convincing them about the sanity of sending you a recording of my voice if I can get it separate from the video. 🙂
A recording? Sure, go ahead. 🙂
I’ll try to get permission and a decent recording, not like my webcam mic is very good even now though :p I may try to get my parents to let me use AM’s proper big video mic… I’ll also need to make myself a script of some kind or it won’t work haha. (I did try with my Webcam, but didn’t know what to say and was too quiet) Or maybe I’ll use a page or two of harahpin 🙂
I wish I could maybe try out for voices. 🙂 I love doing immitations & making animal sounds. ^-^ (Not to sound weird or anything. :P)
You may certainly try out for Voices, when the time comes! 😀 I know I’D be glad to have you! ^_^
I would love to be a storyteller, but that’s kind of your job. I’d love to be a kind of assistant writer, like if you needed help with a plot hole or character development or something. (Though character development is a bad example, because your characters seem so alive as it is!)
Anyway, I would help in weak spots and help try to strengthen the writing.
I don’t need to be in the team if you feel the position is filled, but I just like to help, and I think I would enjoy doing it!
Do not think for a moment that I am closed to the idea of other storytellers in the team! 😀 Actually, you’d be surprised how often I feel like my plots have holes that just won’t fill, or my characters seem flat. I’m in no way perfect at my craft… it’s a growing process, always. ^_^ I would absolutely love to have the resources for others’ story ideas to get made in the team too… I’m not sure how it’s all going to come together yet. ^^; But I’m happy my idea for a team excites you!
(By the way, welcome aboard… aboard the site, that is. 😀 Thanks for being here! :3 )
(By the way, I’m Ro on Emerald Activities!)
I’m glad to be here! You have a lovely website!
Thank you! 😀 And I recognize you. ^u^
