By Jane L. Fitzpatrick – The Moon Drake story, Waya & Two Wolves, has been an evolution… As a screenwriter novice back in 2013, living just outside the bright lights of Los Angeles, palm trees and movie stars, I had an idea. Yes, I was there to somehow get my film about Sacajawea produced, but I was writing other stories, too, developing concepts and learning the Industry.
One of those ideas was Moon Drake Series. I knew I had to have a story written as an example to pitch. That’s when Waya & Two Wolves was born. I wrote the beginning and the ending of the story… but it wasn’t the right timing yet to bring it to the world, for I didn’t know the middle.
Then Sacajawea began to take off a bit, and I put the Moon Drake project description and screenplay in a box. I pursued opportunities in New Mexico then back home to Washington State. In 2021, partially due to Covid and avoiding a film set, the idea of Moon Drake and animation began to stir again…
Last week I finally finished the story of Waya & Two Wolves, from the N. American Continent, episode 1 for Season ONE. Our Native American consultant, Delwin Fiddler, is reviewing the Cherokee elements to bring credibility to the story, as well.
This is a story about the importance of the choices we make. It is a story about protecting endangered animals of the earth. And it is about being open to the answers of life, through Indigenous Wisdom.
