Massive Changes

New title, new description.  This is a completely new blog for a completely new project.  It's just the material that is more or less the same.

Yes, I'm now part of an animation project to bring my spec scripts to life.  I'm really excited about this and hope everyone seeing this will be too.

We've changed the title of this series to Legends of Dream Valley.  It is our hope to get permission from Hasbro to use their My Little Pony trademarks and copyrights to make sure this is all on the up and up.  We believe not using My Little Pony in our title will increase our chances of getting their approval.

The purpose of this blog will also be changing.  It will actually have a purpose.

Every Sunday evening, I will be posting updates on the project here.  What the project is working on, announcements, and material ready for public release.

Check out what's going on after the break.  These update posts might contain spoilers, so tread lightly.

This is a Whole New Project

My Little Pony Legends started out as an experiment.  I want to know just how long an half hour episode was on paper.  I also wanted to try my hand at screenwriting.  I read up on the subject, got a scriptwriting program and started writing my idea for rebooting the G1 My Little Pony Universe.

At first, this was only going to be a spec script series.  However, that's all change.  Now, this spec script series is a fan-made animation project.  I and a few others are working on the beginning concepts for a full animated production of Cold War.

Right now we're making the concept vectors of the main characters.  We hope to have some background art and minor characters done soon.  We also hope to obtain permission from Hasbro to use their My Little Pony brand.

We also need you.  We need people as we get things off the ground.  Animators and voice talent are at the top of our needs.  If you animate in flash or voice act, or if you know someone who does, please let us know.  You can reach me at dalex11235@sbcglobal.net.  We ask that you have a Skype and Dropbox account.

Thank you for any help you can give us.  Even if it's just moral support.   We're excited with this chance to breathe new life in classic My Little Pony.

Flutter Phobia now Private

I locked Flutter Phobia for those wishing to see it and can't access it.  With it being my audition script, I want to make sure it's not on the internet when I present it.  Those who have downloaded it, I ask that you don't post it anywhere.

Thank you.

Flutter Phobia Will be Taken Down

Just an FYI I will be taking Flutter Phobia down from here and everywhere else it's been posted.  I will make the Google Doc private and provide explanations everywhere.

The point of this is I'm adding Flutter Phobia to a professional writing portfolio.  Among many options of employment I'm pursuing, one is screenwriting for Hasbro in particular.  I'm hoping to put my portfolio in the hands of Meghan McCarthy, current head writer of Friendship is Magic herself, at Canterlot Gardens.  I'm also working on other examples of my work for this portfolio.

Episode 16 and Some Changes

After a lot of delays and distractions, Episode 16 is here.  Check it out here or in the episode list.

Also, I've reworked some of the episodes to come.

Until next time.  See you.

Episode List

After the break is a list of episodes for the first season of legends.  Along with the number and name, each episode has a brief summary like you get from the TV guide.  The episodes I've written will have links to their google docs next to their name.

Hello and Welcome

Hello and welcome to the blog for My Little Pony Legends, my retelling of My Little Pony's romp through media in the 80's.  Taking inspiration from the television series, British comic, books, backcard stories, other media, and a lot of my own ideas, I've at least attempted to create a new world for the classic ponies, their allies, and their adversaries.

This blog is for news updates, ideas, asking for advice, and other things related to Legends.  Feedback and discussion are encouraged.
