The first episode of Ollie and Molly is a looooong way off still, but as the lines from the actors come in, I was able to put together a test of my favorite scene from the first episode. This is still a rough cut. There will be music underneath, and I need to make some timing adjustments. It really shows off the talent of the actors, though, I think.
What you see here is the first round of rough concept art for a little project called Ollie and Molly.
When Molly’s mother died, she learned that her father wasn’t JUST a one night stand. He was nobility, and now he’s called the new orphan home to live with him, his wife, and daughter Olivia. Molly, now, must adjust to not only the noble life, but also make her way in a new community of others afflicted with the same genetic condition. The sort of condition that has Molly wandering around at night feeding on rats for extra sustenance. A story about fitting in and finding a place in a world that you weren’t made for. A story of forging a path. A story of two women learning how to be sisters.
But what IS this project! Well! Ollie and Molly is a kinetic comic with foley art, music, and, neatest of all, voice acting! I’m casting for it as we speak and, man, is there some awesome talent involved.
Casting ends April 30th. In the meantime, I’m the process of writing the last half of the script and moving onto the next phase of art. I’ll be sure to keep you updated with details as the project progresses.
