You see, my child-spirit instructed me there was a author in me all alongside. For all these years I believed I used to be poor as a result of I used to be being JUDGED by society’s standards–grammar, sentence construction, and many others. and never on CREATIVITY!

Then I bought invited to Harvard! I name this “poetic justice!”

So let me let you know one other story. One you’ll like about my royal fake pas to Prince Charles and Princess Diana in 1985.

I need to share this humorous whale-of-a-tale with you to additionally illustrate first-hand the CREATIVE EVOLUTION of considered one of my most enjoyable INTELLECTUAL PROPERTIES: The Royal CrittersTM and Whale MagicTM Mission.

It too, began with a misspelled phrase!



When Prince Charles and Princess Diana, the Prince and Princess of Wales, visited the USA in 1985, I needed to welcome Their Royal Highnesses to America in a particular and private approach by sending items for his or her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry. I selected a singular reward for them, one which I believed they want.

Figuring out that the British usually use the cliché “ducky”, I despatched colourful T-shirts, coloring books, balloons and stickers of a cartoon character I created for the California-based earthquake preparedness program I initiated, “Richter Duck’s Operation Quake-Quake”. I inadvertently addressed the package deal to: Prince Charles and Princess Diana, The Prince and Princess of Whales and mailed it Categorical to the British Embassy in Washington, D.C. Unaware of the misspelling of their identify, I used to be shocked and delighted to obtain a Thank You letter from Buckingham Palace for my reward.

Nevertheless, once I learn the letter, I noticed my royal fake pas! As a journalist and author, I used to be moderately embarrassed nevertheless, later I used to be fairly amused by my mistake and thought that the idea of cartoon whales named THE PRINCE AND PRINCESS OF WHALES™ would make an exquisite parody for youngsters. The genesis of THE ROYAL CRITTERS™ was born that day.

Nevertheless, I’d not begin to develop it till 1989. By this time Prince Andrew had married Sarah, Duchess of York and their first baby was named Princess Beatrice (Princess Bea). I then added to the forged, creating THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF YORKIES™ (Yorkshire terriers) and a mumble/bumble bee named PRINCESS HONEY BEE™. We’ve Joan Rivers letter to be the voice of DUCHY, THE DUCHESS OF YORKIES™.

I selected the title THE ROYAL CRITTERS™ as a result of whales are the Royalty of the ocean kingdoms. We human beings must see them of their true gentle and shield them, and all marine life. Because the venture developed and my private understanding of the sweetness and worth of whales on our planet, I merely needed to present voice to them by way of animation.

From there the forged grew to greater than twenty characters together with the royal pod of 5 whales that spout their very own manufacturers of magic, together with e-mail generally known as Whale Mail. I added animated human characters, together with nine-year previous NICHOLAS HOLIDAY™, half mortal, half mermen and divined with mystical powers. His marine biologist dad and mom, ROMAN AND HAPPY HOLIDAY™. The villain is JOHNNY NETWORTH and his henchmen, the ANCHOVY BROTHERS™. NETWORTH transmutes from mortal to poisonous oil waste and a whale web to carry out his Machiavellian deeds.

And so started my quest to find out about whales, dolphins, the oceans, animation, music, movie and tv manufacturing, licensing and each side of such a enterprise. I sought out the crème de la crème in each space of this venture, each time doable; from Royalty to world famend marine biologists and whale consultants, script consultants and a Hollywood animation author with lots of of credit to her identify to assist me develop the animation and publication bible and storyline for the venture. I met with celebrities resembling Dom De Luise and Tippi Hedren to be voices for the venture, together with Joan Rivers and Olivia Newton-John, and others (Superstar Bios and Letters of Intent or Curiosity can be found upon request).

As whales are identified for his or her sonic “songs”, I created enjoyable and kooky animated whales that sing the whole lot from Hip-Hop to Opera. I discovered Hip-Hop artists, Jazz aficionados, award-winning singers, songwriters, and a conductor with the London Philharmonic to compose and orchestrate the music!

As animation advanced into what it’s in the present day, I sought out one of the best bids from CGI digital animators, and selected an Atlanta-based studio to deliver the characters and film to life with the most recent in expertise. I met with producers, distributors and special-effects animators at Disney and went again to highschool to be taught movie and tv manufacturing. I opened my very own animation studio in Vancouver, British Columbia to do the primary part of pre-production for the film.

I’ve studied tendencies and successes within the licensing, leisure and digital expertise industries. Even Discovering Nemo, the animated box-office blockbuster and Academy Award winner for Finest Animation Film for 2004, has set the charted course for the varsity of BIG fish…whales…and WHALE MAGIC!

I organized and met with lecturers, astronomers, students and philosophers to be taught in regards to the mysteries of life, which I wove into the artistic tapestry of WHALE MAGIC. I adopted my muses, and traveled to many locations to be taught and analysis facets of the script, to present it its particular magic and realism–from the highest of the heavens to the underside of the ocean, fairly actually!

I met with the nice nephew of Edwin Powell Hubble, creator of the famed Hubble Telescope and the person who modified our view of the Universe, to find out about area, photo voltaic and lunar eclipses, the moon and the results it has on oceanic tides. I went on whale-watching expeditions in California, the Atlantic and Canada.
I traveled to the Bermuda Triangle and Bimini, Bahamas to write down a part of the script; and to discover the traditional roads of Atlantis submerged off the coast of Bimini, a key atmosphere and setting within the film. And in my “spare time” I raised $1 million for the venture! Nevertheless, that’s only a drop within the bucket. The completion funds for the WHALE MAGIC: AN OCEAN OF LOVE animated characteristic movie venture is $15 million.

WHALE MAGIC has been my soul’s journey! A captivating and mystical journey stuffed with wealthy and great life-experiences. Even the hardships and sacrifices that I endured, personally and professionally, with a purpose to observe my dream and craft a spectacular whale-of-a-project, have confirmed invaluable and a supply of deep inspiration.

I’ve been honored, enriched and blessed past measure by all of the unbelievable and really particular individuals (and whales) I’ve met alongside this journey. Lots of whom you’ll meet on this overview; every bringing their very own model of magic and particular skills to make WHALE MAGIC the distinctive treasure it’s!

WHALE MAGIC is not only a trilogy of animated motion pictures, or a set of books and songs and buying and selling playing cards and toys. Neither is it a tv collection. WHALE MAGIC is a journey–a stunning, magical journey of life, classes, magnificence and love!

Wealthy with enjoyable, memorable and loveable archetypal characters, dramatic storylines, humor, thrilling music and awe-inspiring animation and particular results, WHALE MAGIC is a venture with common, multi-cultural attraction that can attain a big spectrum of demographics WHALE MAGIC is a coronary heart story borne out of a labor of affection…for a lot of generations to take pleasure in!

And all of this… due to a misspelled phrase!

I’ve rightfully devoted the venture to the loving reminiscence of Princess Diana.
