I am sending this concept to you in hopes of developing and creating a collaboration on an exciting animation project called Artistique... The Theatrical Circus Phenomenon!
When you find the time, please listen to the two songs in the video below and review the vision I have written. There is a compact disc already with four etherical compositions with "out of this world lyrics" for use in a possible movie soundtrack that is 66 minutes long.
The tracks are as follows:
In My Imagination... my dreams really do come true, all you have to do is believe and yours will too! (In the video)
Bend Over Backwards... spinning and twisting and throwing yourself every which way but loose!
Life Is An Illusion... it is what you make of it that counts, it is like an infinite bubble with a finite bounce! (In the video)
I Think... there for I am whatever I want to be, whether its an illusion to you, its real to me!
The show was written with a Cirque du Soleil meets the Wizard of Oz meets Annie kind of concept... Believing and knowing one can fulfill their destiny if they try hard enough and never give up. I use to produce theatrical shows similar in the 90's, Artistique just ended up on the shelf until something inside me said send it your way for consideration.
I hope you find some interest in Artistique as a possible animation movie or may know of someone that would be! I'm looking to have Artistique made into an animated DVD that can make the main character appear in skin tones of White, Black or Tan and speaks in any of the five major languages of the world or it can just be played like a CD and listen to the heart
warming music... You make the choice!
Have you shown in any SIGGRAPH Animation Screenings?

The Imaginative Bubbblelicious World Without End... A New Age Theatrical Operetta Extravaganza!
In the world and imagination of a little girl named Anastasia there exists equality for every living thing... Even the not so quickly moving things! Everything as she knows it to be is alive and deserves respect and love... From the atomistic to the gargantuan for the Universal Life Force is within it all... from the quietest to the loudest!
The only thing that is true is the Light... For she lives in a world where the Sun always rises and forever sets. She lives in a world the seems to never sleep. Where all people are treated equally and with respect. And that there is a perfect vibrating energy rhythm for all things to exist.
Or so she thinks!
As she is playing in her beautiful backyard blowing bubbles, singing to herself "In My Imagination" and just being silly as all little children do, with mountains in the distance and valleys below... she can see forever and know that there is never a thing to worry about as she plays with her doll, Dolly and is guarded by her angels Rocky, who is a pup boxer that is off the charts, overly excited and inquisitive. Then there is her stubborn old bulldog Buckeye, who feels he is the universe... He only has one good eye and is always getting confused even though he thinks he knows it all.
While Anastasia frolics in the setting sun once again, she doesn't realize her world is about to change forever... Out of no where she blows and blows this humongous bubble that seems to not want to pop! A powerful wind comes along and encapsulates her and her beloved pets into the bubble... Oh and lets not forget Dolly as she swings on her majestic swing!
She may seem to be a spoiled little girl but there is not much love... True Love... or Pure Love to go around in her household for her ego driven parents are to busy keeping up with the neighbors in the rat race of every day life, poor little Anastasia, who just wants to be nurtured and cared for, as it should be, is left to her own devices.
Her selfish parents don't even know she is missing until she is just about to return filled with a sense of self, wisdom and insight as if she had been given a gift once again as all babies do when they are born! For she is 12 years old... and as we all know turning 13 on this very day will change her life forever!
As the wind picks up speed and the dust begins to whirl, thunderous clouds move in and whisk them off to a place that has never been seen by the eyes of man... Its is a place of limitless intrigue and suspense. The Land of Imagination! But wait... There is a warning for all that enter posted as the bubble comes to a graceful, soft landing then pops!
BEWARE OF WHAT YOU ASK FOR... IT JUST MIGHT COME TRUE!!!
