See the beloved characters of the Aspen Series come to life as a web series! Experience the drama in a new way. Long overdue...
This project is to plan, execute and produce a finished webseries for my books of the Aspen Series, a dramatic medieval storyline along the same lines as "Game of Thrones".
The story begins with the book, "Noble Courage". Aspen Tiller is an abused girl and is sold to another man by her father. She finds her strength in the company of a feared man in another village and the magic she holds inside changes the people from night to day. They all cling to the bright possibility of this brave girl and what she does to benefit them.
Another man had held Aspen in his sights and so the plot unfolds as he conspires to get her back. Although his heart is black and evil, he cannot get her out of his mind and will stop at nothing to have her.
Secrets are revealed and the plot twists and turns taking you on a crazy roller coaster ride that is hard to resist.
There are four books at this point with another due out this year. That will leave the last book set to be completed in 2014 and will conclude the series.
The screenplays have already been started and careful casting is in the works. This is not a project that will feel like it was done haphazardly. It will be filmed with quality equipment and will be edited and pieced together by guys who have experience in the field.
The Director has years of experience in theater. Their perspective and creativity is vital for this project.
The cast will be made up of people who excel at what they do. There is no compromise in this area. They are responsible for communicating the story flawlessly and believably.
Equipment like cameras, lighting and specific costumes will be needed as well as fees for locations. Building a few staple sets will be required. These will carry the filming on to complete all 6 books.
Airing is projected to happen in November of this year on video platforms like YouTube and Blip.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
I do fear a delay in airing my series only if there are difficulties getting the cast together to shoot scenes.
There may be a decision do seasons of episodes to catch up filming.
The goal is to have six months worth of episodes before airing. With that cushion, we should have no trouble keeping the show going.
