How we want to affect the future
We understand that children learn a lot from the world around them. In the first several years of a child's life, they will learn things that will stick with them for the rest of their lives. It is good to instill good morals and behaviors into children while they are still young. Over the last several years, Hollywood has used story telling to create a lot of who people are today. Hollywood has created a standard of living that people believe is somehow a dream they can live. There are many ways to affect the people around us, but the media has proven to be one of the greatest tools.
We want to change the future and show children what truth is, what real friendship is and how to be someone responsible. This animated adventure, filled with action, comedy, great characters, and fascinating worlds, will captivate and build children's imaginations. But far above that, they will be shown the reality of who we are in what we do.
Deception is a story about a Juba (Fictional character named, Velasco), who feels the pain and frustration of living alone. And even when someone is alone, it doesn't mean without company, but deep down in his heart, he has no friends. He has been mocked and made fun of to the extent of feeling helpless and unwanted. He feels his last hope lies in leaving his home and finding a place where he is wanted as a friend. The Journey begins and all hope seams to rise up inside Velasco as he fixes his vision on a distant city where his dreams break free. But shortly after his arrival, he is accused of kidnapping the King's daughter and thrown in prison. Feeling even more hopeless than before, he faces his lingering doom to be destroyed, not knowing his friends of the past have set out to find him. Questions start to arise as the King's best Juba is sent out for investigation and no clues are to be found. The King himself has ruled with an Iron fist, and searches for an object of legend that will allow him to enslave the entire city under his command. But when Velasco's previous friends learn about all the deception the king is using to enslave everyone, they find themselves racing to obtain the object of power that the king so eagerly searches for. The race for time begins, but not without difficulty. The King has given Velasco an opportunity to join him in power and make his mark as someone great. The King reassures Velasco that no one needs friends when you have power. But Velasco's friends have other plans. Their hope to save Velasco and free the city from bondage, has caused them to make new friends themselves and gain a position of respect. Their efforts for justice are soon rewarded with great joy and friendship.
This story is told from the perspective of a grandfather to his grandson. Leading up to this point, the grandson has been bullied and rejected by other children at school, leaving him with no friends. The grandfather uses this story as a means to point out a relationship with a friend who sticks closer than a brother. He explains to his grandson what it means to have a relationship with Jesus. He also talks to him about how sin is used to destroy people's lives, while Christ came to save people from destruction.
Deception is a powerful story that teaches a good lesson and points to a relationship with God. We have spent the past several months working hard to pull this project together. We have spent time talking to investors, and people like you, to help us get this feature film on its feet. We have decided to take things one step at a time. Because we know that steps will lead to a goal as long as they aren't steps backward. Right now we need to raise the money needed to get the concept artist started on the project. Our concept artist is Luke Sure from Italy Rome, who has signed a contract to start the artwork right away. But as we all know, quality takes money. With the Images Luke puts together we will have a picture of what the world, characters, ext, will look like for the movie. This will allow us to have a foundation to intrigue Investors and get people like you more interested in what we are doing. These images will also be forwarded to the 3D artists who will create the worlds for the film and give it life. There will be hundreds of 3d models created and then brought to life through animation. Among these, we plan to create around 200 different styles of characters that will represent the population of our worlds. From there we will proceed to make this project comparable in quality to a Hollywood movie.
What will this money do for us?
1- Pay the Concept Artist
2- Pay for a script review from Act One. (Act one is a Hollywood company that professionally critiques film scripts and writes reviews)
The Script has been sent off to be evaluated by a professional writer who has replied with much excitement about his first look at the story. Rex is a professional writer who is working on making the script into a finished piece of artwork. He told me over the phone, "I had a hard time putting the script down when I first read it. It really kept me going. I wanted to know what happened next. I really like the action sequences and the overall story line. I'm very excited to see this turned into a movie!"
I was very excited to hear his input and hope it sparks something in you as well. We plan to put the script into the hands of several more people for review and look forward to the input and excitement they have for the project.
The script has been written to fill 120 minutes of screen time/a 2 hour feature.
During the last few months we have had some time to work on creating some images that will hopefully give your imagination something to work off of:

Risks and challenges
After months of work, we have evaluated many aspects of the project and are ready to face any challenge that attempts to get in our way. Our biggest obstacle is having the money we need to get started. Our hope is to finish the project in close to a year, and all good things take time. Along the way there will be points where we may have possible equipment failure or other similar issues. The chances are small, but we are prepared to face each one with an answer and push forward. We would like to get this movie in theaters and into stores as well. We know it will be lots of hard work and perseverance, but each challenge will drive us to something more. We will be successful with your help and change the world one step at a time.
