We have completed our sizzle reel and created posters using the actual characters from each episode. Collaborator Studios, with Jacob and Arnold Pander (The Pander Brothers), did an absolute, amazing job with the reel along with Temple Gate Film’s composer, Rick Balentine, who created the powerful and emotional music score. To view the sizzle reel, please click the YouTube video on the sidebar of this website!
Our second poster, with episodes from Seasons 1 & 2, presents stories from the South American Continent. As a writer, I was humbled to partner with Martin Nuza as we wrote the dynamic stories for South America.
Episode 1.4, Andrea & the Carpayo Campaign from Peru, by Martin Nuza, focuses on ocean pollution. This is a transformative story about an Earth Hero, Andrea, who sees an environmental challenge in her town, and she rises up to meet it head-on. She has a plan to change the world and help heal the Earth.
Episode 2.4, Rakesh & the Rain Dancer from Suriname, addresses the use of illegal gillnets. It was a wonderful experience writing this story and consulting with our amazing sister, Monique Wijngaarde, who has a direct connection to Suriname. Rakesh has a dream to be a skin diver, but he has no idea where his inexperience will take him or how he will answer the call to free the dolphins.
What a magnificent journey we walk with a dynamic animation and production team! Moon Drake is blessed to have some of the best people in the industry to support its clearly defined mission – to help the world become a better place.
By Martin Nuza – When it comes to the environment and protecting the earth – the old adage is certainly true – “A few committed citizens can change the world!” This is the premise for Moon Drake’s episode 1.4 by Martin Nuza, “Andrea & the Carpayo Campaign.”
Martin has created yet another masterpiece that is filled with wisdom and human success. It draws together the dreams of children and shows how they can reach them, even at a young age. The conflict is based on ocean and beach pollution that is seen on many shores.
Andrea, a charismatic and determined 13-year-old girl has a dream for her town and she puts it into action! The story is the most magnificent tale of an Earth Hero and it will ignite the hearts of children, and also adults!
Thank you, dear Martin, for your amazing gift of storytelling and the insight you have for the purpose and passion of the Moon Drake series! We are all so very grateful for you!
There are only two episodes of Season 1 still to be completed. The project animators are working toward creating a dynamic teaser reel and we will begin our quest for voiceover actors very soon. There will be more on that in the coming weeks.
