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!
Over the next 6 blogs we are going to share the continent posters for Moon Drake episodes from Seasons 1 & 2. Our first poster is for the Asian Continent. Both of these beautiful stories were written by my friend and extraordinary writing partner, Martin Manuel Nuza
Martin was a writing marvel as he shared his wisdom and creativity in these two fantastic tales. Episode 1.6, Chinua & Bayarmaa, is about illegal golden eagle hunting in Mongolia. Chinua is a huntress, and she is a powerful female lead character with determination!
Episode 2.5, Arundhati’s Voice, is equally powerful as Arundhati stands up for her dreams no matter what. Her strength causes some in her family to be upset, but in the end, everyone rises to a different place and embraces this young girl’s heart. This was a difficult story to tell, but Martin presents it in the gentlest, most compassionate way.
By Martin Nuza – Moon Drake producers are humbled and grateful to present to you Episode 1.6 (Asian Continent). Once again, Martin has touched our hearts, our minds and our spirits through his newest creation, “Chinua & Bayarmaa.” It is a story set in a most intriguing and remarkable place, Mongolia.
Throughout the storyline there is cultural wisdom and an adversary to conquer – there’s illegal poaching and also love… But the greatest lesson in this tale is a battle within for this Mongolian huntress. It is the hardest choice of all, to let something go – something that must be free.
Personally, I absolutely loved the power of this story, the colorful culture and traditional beauty portrayed through the characters and their relationships – all presented in the backdrop of this mystical place. I believe children will fall in love with Chinua and her golden eagle!
Over the next few days, watch for Episode 1.3 by Mark Rickerby, and other episodes coming soon. We are working to bring this rich series to children and adults around the world, to spread the wisdom from the earth.
A young girl must try and save her village from a man’s illegal poaching activities, while, at the same time, trying to prepare her beloved golden eagle for the Eagle Festival in the Mongolian mountains.
