Good evening, and welcome back to the 8-Leafer Studios Blog! I’m Cloverman Joe Carlson, and a lot has happened in the past weeks concerning my team and I. As you may know, our last film project had a digital disaster and we had to cancel it until we all had the time. One of our new team members, Erika Adams, would have been playing the role of a space-farer named Nixie. Although she is still scheduled to appear in another project, she’s been so on board I consider her a part of 8-Leafer Studios already. She is a local radio talent here in Duluth, and recently she had her 50th episode of her show as champion to the art of storytelling, and recently wrote a wonderful children’s book, called “New Moon’s Family.” She came to me with some wonderful illustrations by Eric Soderstrom, and asked me to animate them into a trailer and whip up a music track to accompany them. I felt really connected to this project, I have some scheduled to reach the moon next year on the Moon Arts Ark, so you can imagine how I like the recurring theme here. You will find the final trailer below. It went through a last second re-rendering because I wasn’t available to fix something properly but I don’t think it lost enough resolution to matter. It was a really fun project and I hope she writes many more books! Find copies on Amazon, barnesandnoble.com, and Itasca, and check out her site at elatales.com!
