Brenda Lane is a gifted song writer and composer, creating songs for our characters to sing in the animated filmListen to samples of some of her previous works by Lila Cervantes:

Song Title - Come Adonai.

 Song Title - I Can See.

Song Title - Song of Solomon.

Heaven | The First War -- This story begins long before mankind was brought into existence; before any created being was acquainted with the concept of sin, when everything was perfectly peaceful. 

Snippets from the trailer - characters are not the final concepts.
Snippets from the trailer - characters are not the final concepts.

This epic telling of the great controversy between God and Lucifer is a true story -- of God and angels and demons and humanity in conflict with each other. It culminates in a triumphant denouncement, with peace and restoration for all who choose it; and the promise that someday One will return to make things right.

Long ago, the universe was perfect. Angels lived in harmony with the Divine, until a spark of jealousy grew into hatred, starting the very first War. Since then, forces of good and evil have been locked in a fierce battle to control human minds and destinies. 

Heaven | The First War is an epic narrative about this dramatic conflict -- from sin's inception in a perfect Heaven, to the eventual fall of humanity's first parents.

Viewers of this animated film will glimpse the beginnings of sin in Lucifer's mind. They will stand in the Garden of Eden, wishing they could step between Eve and the serpent to stop the tragedy. They will become acquainted with the great characters of the Bible, God the father, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, Gabriel, Adam, Eve, Lucifer, and the angelic hosts of heaven.

The narrative builds on the scriptural theme of age-old conflicts, the creation of Adam and Eve and their subsequent fall into sin. The story lays a foundation to understand how demonic control has inspired wars,  instigated crime, prolonged universal suffering on planet Earth.

And showcased throughout is the redemption of humanity by Christ on the cross.

The level of quality we are aiming for in this animated film will be similar to DreamWorks Animation's The Croods or that of Cloudy with a chance of meatballs from Sony Pictures Animation. On the other hand the artistic style of the film will like Disney's Frozen or Tangled. Below is concept art for one of the characters we have in development. Like any good animated film we need to get the characters right. This was what we used to help us decide how the wings will look like on one of the characters.

After we decided on the wings we needed to work out the outfit. We are not quite there yet but we have made some progress as to how we want the characters to look in the 3D world we will be creating. 

Then we started to render the image based on all of our decisions, what we had at that point is what you see below. At this point we had a better idea as to what we wanted and how we wanted to accomplish that.

This is the final 2D render of this character. We use this process for all of our character designs. Some will be even more detailed, but this will give you a good idea as to what the level of detail/quality will be with this animated film.
