For the past two years or so, Markus and I have been working on a collaboration project together. In those two years, this project has had many faces. It began as a grandiose story, but was then boiled down to a simple children's book. We thought that was the best way to tell the story, but we realized that it lost a lot of it's charm and epic scale. So we were unsure of how to proceed and were really trying to choose the right medium. We even toyed around with turning it into a graphic novel or online comic. After many brainstorming meetings and hitting the wall over and over, it finally dawned on us, an animated adventure web series. The workload would be heavy, but it's the only way to give the story the respect it deserves.
After we finally decided on creating an animated series, Markus started working on the trailer. He's been diligently working on it in his spare time for the past three months. We've titled our project, "The Lost Land of Yehey". It's an animated, action-adventure web series that tells the story of a young boy and girl that are in search for the fabled Lost Land of Yehey, a place where dreams and impossibilities become reality. When the two young protagonists stumble upon their grandfather's old journal, chronicling his adventures in the search for Yehey, they decide to continue his search and embark on an adventure that will change the world forever.
It's been an amazing journey watching the world that we created together come to life, and I can't wait to see how it will grow. So far It's truly been a labor of love, and sometimes frustration. However I'm so excited to share this with you, and I hope that you are able to join us on this journey to "The Lost Land of Yehey".
