Brother Thomas-Happy Dance!
This is an image I’ve taken from the story beats for a short film I want to make called The Temptation of Brother Thomas. The real title for the image is The Procession but “Happy Dance” does a better job of capturing my immediate mood. I recently found out that I received the Research Fellowship Grant from Huntington University which will allow me up to a year (along with some cash) to develop Brother Thomas into a completed film concept.
Development includes exploring old cathedrals and illuminated manuscripts as well as other artifacts from Church history. I will also be investigating stop-motion and digital graphic techniques, and doing a whole lot of drawing in the next 12 months. Some friends have stepped up to help out in story development and visual design so I’m thinking that a year from now we’ll have a great package to take on the road…so to speak. I will also be using this time to research funding options that can help get this little guy up on a screen.
