Making a world isn't easy

So we are now a tantalizing three weeks in to our first project as Pivot Pictures and unsurprisingly we are behind schedule.  Although our schedule was a little over optimist in the first place.

We have spent these past weeks story-boarding the twenty-five verse poem that first started life a year ago and has been dusted off and rewritten with much hindsight.  I've always heard that a good writer's tip is to put away what you've written for a month or two so that when you view it again you can do so with fresh eyes and a detached perspective.  That was certainly the case and after showing it to some knowledgeable friends, further rewrites took place.

We are now in the process of constructing the characters and sets for the mini movies that will become the animated illustrations for our book and we are starting to realize just how much work is involved!
