It all started with a porcupine . . .
Paisley’s backstory . . .
In the very beginning, I saw a movie in my mind, of a little porcupine who is forced to give her quills ~ or protection away.
Paisley’s dream is to become a fashion designer. So she decorates her quills with flowers, leaves and the wonders of nature, rather than using the quills to keep herself safe. Because of this, she is a beacon to predators; they see her coming miles away. So, to her dismay (or delight), Paisley is banned to the animal Fashion Forest! It is a world of couture and splendor.
Yet, in the Fashion Forest, there lives a snarly Diva named Zavannah. She rules her fashion empire with a steely eye. Porcupines must use their quills as pins. So, rather than being able to express herself artistically, Paisley is forced to give up a very important part of herself: her quills/protection. Zavannah is the bully Diva who takes and takes and takes. Paisley must learn to believe in herself . . . before it’s too late.
My Dream . . .
There was a time in my life when I worked on a 26 million dollar Pavilion for KIA MOTORS, with Disney and Universal consultants. With an extensive entertainment and marketing background, I saw what was possible!
My dream is to turn Paisley into a full scale musical or animated movie ~ The Devil Wears Prada meets The Lion King. I am already working on the musical and assembling a team who can see my vision!
I grew up on musicals and know how memorable lyrics and music are. They stay with you for a lifetime. There is something about bringing a story to life that is exhilarating. I’ve already created a multitude of interactive musical productions! Join me on my journey to creating my OPUS!
