With 'Spirit of the Game' I'm still at the stage of finding a final style for the film. Yes, we do already have much work - including a fully animated teaser - to show. However, for a film to fully find its voice you have to dig deeper than that by continually updating and refining its vision. No one person alone can do this and so I'm enlisting the help of several artists and individuals to help me out in defining a final style for 'Spirit of the Game' that I want to animate. Its an exciting process and a pleasure to have so many other minds on the challenge in addition to my own. Time and money are of the essence however. To explain this process better, let's consider the words of the great maestro and mentor of animation, Walt Disney...
The challenge for me as Director/Producer of 'Spirit of the Game' is to respect the wisdom and knowledge of the past, while at the same time reflecting the styles and technologies of the present, for audiences of the future. In time 'Spirit of the Game' will find its perfect voice and I'll gladly share it with you when it happens. In the meantime, we'll be exploring so many creative options - as a team of individuals - as Walt once did with the fine talents of his generation. Watch this space folks! :)
An own goal!
Share my journey as I make 'Spirit of the Game' for you and for everyone else around this world who wants to see again an innovative, top-quality, hand-drawn animated movie. 'Spirit of the Game' is a story for our times and one that shares core life values for those with the ears to hear and the eyes to see.
