By Jane L. Fitzpatrick – Yesterday we crossed a HUGE milestone for the Moon Drake Series. And, we are OVER THE MOON to be able to share with you that we have written twelve scripts, completing all the episodes for Season One of this production!
This is quite an accomplishment to have finished these twelve powerful stories within a six-month time period. It is also amazing that we stayed on our timeline and brought forth extremely thought-provoking, diverse and meaningful stories for children. Yes, they will be entertained, but mostly they will learn how we are all connected to the earth and each other.
So today we share the final episode, 1.12, “Ihaka’s Rainbow of the Sea” – which takes place in Moeraki, New Zealand. It focuses on a 12-year-old Maori boy, Ihaka, who loses his hand in a tragic bicycle accident. He also loses Hope and the Will to continue on toward his dreams of helping to save the blue whales. But his physical therapist and resourceful friends have other plans, determined to make sure Ihaka finds meaning again. What unfolds is an experience none of them ever expected and a realization that changes, not just Ihaka’s life, but all of their lives.
The next phase for Moon Drake is our dynamite sizzle reel that shows the essence of this international production so that we can present the project to investors. In our heart of hearts, we believe this series is going to reach kids everywhere, all around the world. Please take a look at this project, share the website with your friends who may want to learn more. We thank you for your inspiration, vision and support, and especially for your belief in the dynamic potential of this anime series, Moon Drake!
We are REACHING FOR THE MOON!
