WHAT IS BRAVE STAR?
BraveStar is an all-age tale of adventure and chasing your dreams. It is my homage to the animated film I grew up watching from Disney, to Pixar and DreamWorks. A grand fantasy taking place in an underwater mythical medieval style kingdom for all to see and enjoy.
Inspiration and Vision
The inspiration for BraveStar came from a simple thought. I stood out among the night sky and gazed into the stars. Being the dreamer I am and wanting to chase my dream of becoming a comic book creator and future filmmaker. It dawned on me the simple phrase of " Reach for the stars and land in the clouds." Boom. BraveStar was born. The tale of a starfish wanting to become a "Real Star." And so I began crafting a plot from each character involved and within due time a story was made.
The story took time in crafting. Due to me growing as a writer and creator. Also finding an artist to help bring my vision to life. But overtime each piece began to fall into place. And I could begin seeing the vision of BraveStar come alive.
I love animated films and I love epic tales of courage, bravery and honor. That's why this story has to be told. It's the embodiment of every feeling I have within my soul of longing for a grand adventure. But also to achieve my dream despite the obstacles placed ahead of me to live my life as a creator. Which is why Astra will carry me on this adventure. I hope you join in and embark with adventure in your heart!
