In this workshop we are looking at how we would like to design the overall feeling of the cartoon movie part of the project and as such we continue to revise the “Ghecos Evolution” development of scenes and characters. As an example we have put together a short title demo and added a brief glimpse of a new character. Ghana Comics, Ghana Comic Network
A young Nyam boy was separated from his tribe during the commotion and finds himself lost in a city ruin. Running for days from a creature so terrifying, caused him to forget what he was doing or where he was going. He blinks through momentary flashbacks of the attack and is scared beyond comprehension to a point that he cannot move and although the water he now stands causes him to shiver, he dare not make a sound.
He knows something is wrong, he knows something about him has changed and fortunate for him he will not remember what comes next.
He stumbles on a rock beneath him and then it happens… with excruciating pain he screams, his heart beat quickens at an alarming pace, he clutches his chest piercing his bosom with his fingernails and stands paralysed like a zombie as the pain ripples through his mind, body and soul, and in a flash the pain is gone.
He pulls himself together in the still night and hears nothing but the cold running waters lapping at his thighs, hesitantly he steps forward, first one foot and then another. He stops, listens and then continues to wade across the void before him. He realises the stillness, no sound, in fact what worries him most, no heartbeat. He snaps his head left and right and slowly tilts his head to gaze at the shimmering water, but for some reason no longer fears.
He feels odd in someway, heavy. He feels slow but yet strong. He continues to wade and catches a glimpse of a shadow in the moonlight, he turns but it’s gone. He stops and bends to cup water in his hands to drink and then yells out a monstrous roar, louder than 100 lions on an african savanna.. His worst nightmare… there’s hideous creature in the palm of his hands… he cries and then weeps for the transformation is complete! He is his worst fear! He has become one of them! – An Anasite beast.

Developing under water land mass scenery for the Chronicles of Irofo is a process which has some challenges such as mixing light reflection and refraction.
We step through the initial task of first designing what kind of land masses that will work for our story, where creatures of a mermaid like physique will dwell in, whilst they farm sea beds for plant life and ocean creatures.
There will exist some historical architecture that represents days gone by where their ancestors rose and fell at the hands of natural ecosystem forces and wars of the past. Ghana Comics, Ghana Comic Network
We also created an audio mood music snippet track for Ghana Movie Music.
Mountains and Green Valleys…The clip posted is a snippet from Ananse Amazon Scenery we’re creating to be populated by a few villages. The terrain design is based on a combination of sunset memories of central-northern Ghana.
The scene is a generalised scene to be refined and the music is a snippet created in the virtual Afreeka Radio Studio. Ghana Comics, Ghana Comic Network
