The idea for this movie came from me wanting to make a fantasy film, but I don’t have the budget to have costumes and locations and all the elements that would make for a good story-so I sort of thought ‘whatever, I’ll just write my novel and leave it at that.’ The idea for a movie to star figures / puppets sort of swirled in my head. I wanted to at first make a horror movie starring puppets, but never finished the script and the ideas just weren’t there.
Then, I saw a movie entitled “The Dark Crystal” a cult classic. I was surprised that as a fan of fantasy, I had never seen it, but I loved it and it’s one I’ll certainly watch over and over. After viewing it, I decided I was going to make a movie starring puppets-and make it my fantasy story.
Having the movie star Daiquiri, my energetic dolphin character who is already a puppet, was an obvious choice. I then bought a few more puppets online after writing out a script that will require a lot of locations and a lot of voice work (90% of which is done already.) I am really looking forward to this movie and while it will be a tedious film to edit and shoot (being that I have to wait until I actually GO to the locations which I am filming at) The movie won’t be out until early July.
As far as releasing the movie, it will be on You Tube and maybe other video sharing sites, I MIGHT even release it on DVD-but no promises.
