Topic: Once Upon a Kingdom - Production Log
What's this then? Well, I'm glad you asked. This is the production log for my next project, a fantasy/action/epic short called "Once Upon a Kingdom".
I've always loved fantasy, and I even started my brickfilming career making lego versions of scenes from the Lord of the rings. This project is meant to be sort of an homage to all those fantasy films and books that I love, set in a fantasy world created by my younger brother when he was like, eight, at the most. So in a way, I guess it's an homage to him and my other two brothers as well, since we all developed the world with him.
So what's it about? Well, I don't like to spoil things, so I'll keep it vague. But the story centers around Ilaine, a young squire in service of the Kingdom of Rikland. She's part of an entourage travelling through dangerous lands constantly raided by the villainous trolls. When they make camp for the night, they're attacked, and the unexperienced Ilaine has to try her best to survive the ordeal.
The script is currently sitting at a hefty 37 pages, although I tend to be very descriptive when I write, so the final length of the film should end up at around 25-30 minutes. Still quite a long film, and considering that half the film will be the battle at the end I'm definitely upping the challenge for this one. I do like challenges however, and I learned a lot from my previous project "Isolation", so I'm feeling confident I can actually finish it. I also like to try different things, so I wanted to make something different from my last film. The goal is to start shooting during december, and have the film done by the end of 2021.
That's basically all I have for now, but I'll of course be updating more as the project moves forward.
