This is Del Sydebothom. I’m trying to spearhead the creation of a new Catholic media company called “The Ezra Media Project”. The first major undertaking I want to tackle under the auspices of this company is an adaptation of my book Gan-Aeden. The ultimate goal will be to produce a “early-Ghibli” caliber film or mini-series to be distributed through online stores. Those who wish to collaborate on this project will be working towards the creation of a company, not just a single product. That means you’ll have the chance, should you be interested, to become a long-term legal parter of Ezra Media, sharing in its profits as you collaborate on future productions. The details are worth discussing later, one-on-one.
This project, Gan-Aeden, is a retelling of the life of Adam and Eve, set in the Northeast Africa of approximately 200,000 years ago. Those who contribute must be willing to work on a project that will depict nudity of both genders in a respectful and non-erotic way.
These are the kinds of artists am I looking for right now:
- Background painters
- Character animators
- 3d compositors to put together multi-plane shots.
I’d prefer to direct the voice work locally, here in Kingsport. Nevertheless, if you think you’d be interested in a part, and have the means of professionally recording your voice, let me know. The parts, along with the type of voice needed are:
- Adam (adolescent black male)
- Eve (adolescent black female)
- God (elderly black male)
- Satan (indeterminate)
- Michael (male, any ethnicity)
- Gabriel (male, any ethnicity)
- Raphael (male, any ethnicity)
- Adamite Principality (deep voiced male, any ethnicity)
- Angelic Chorus (mixed)
- Demonic Hordes (mixed—will be heavily post-processed anyway)
Over the next year, I will be pitching this project to churches and other communities. I will be willing to use some of the money raised thereby to provide transportation to Kingsport once our recording studio is set up.
Finally, everyone who contributes will receive a free hard-cover copy of Gan-Aeden. It is still in the editing process, but will be published before the month is out. Pax!
