About

Hi ! Thank you for visiting my Kickstarter ! 

I am Asalfin, I am studying both animation and music composition, and currently working on my last film - The Story of Coyote 

It takes place in a world I am creating called Thala'an. It has a wildlife, civilizations, magic, territories, and a main story where Coyote is a very important character. 

The Story of Coyote is told a lot by the soundtrack, and in many scenes, the animations are synchronized with it. 


 The Story

This film is about a lonely coyote who has been corrupted by a monster. It starts on the other side of the island...

The Village

 Everything seems to be fine in the small village. The villagers, fox families, butterflies, and other animals eat, drink or nap watching the sun rise while the quoonis (the white squirrel-like animals like in the video below !) steal whatever they can and play with it, as they always do.

   They know that there is a lonely coyote on their island but they always avoid him as he reminds them of a long gone dark past.

They recently heard loud noises coming from the other side of the island, they try to forget it as they hope it wasn't anything too bad, but it was much worse than they could imagine.

 Quooni Chase - One of the Soundtracks that I composed for the short film 


My hope is to give people a story to enjoy with animations and musics, I am working as hard as I can to make it real. 

Process

I've been working on this film since last summer, developing the story, designing the characters and animals, building the landscape, composing the soundtracks... After months of work, I am finishing up animation, moving on to rendering, and also working a lot on the soundtrack which I am trying to make as great as possible. 


How you can help ! 

 In order to make The Story of Coyote a complete experience, I need to compose a great soundtrack that will tell the story and push its emotional range to its best. My film depends a lot on the quality of the soundtrack, yet the virtual instruments  I have for it (string orchestra, wind instruments...) aren't great. 

With a fully funded Kickstarter, I will be able to work with high quality virtual instruments that will bring the story to its most expressive and emotional level. For that end, I am looking to raise 850€, with a stretch goal of an additional 340€ that will go towards buying a female vocalist virtual instrument for an even greater soundtrack and also online marketing to grow a community and make more people enjoy the film. 


Funding 

MUSIC EQUIPMENT : 850€

Risks and challenges

My biggest challenge is to finish this project and make it as great as possible, but I won't be able to do so without reaching the goal amount !
Nevertheless, I am very grateful to any funding that can be provided.
