The Executive Producer of Studio Virtasia, Mr. Karsten dan Andersen from Denmark, has established Studio Virtasia’s principal, culturally significant, ‘Reviving the Classics’ Project, for the 2020-21 time period.
“For the last 175 years, Hans Christian Andersen’s stories, have brought happiness and learning to generations of young people throughout the world,” states Karsten. “Now it’s time to place them into a new entertainment format, which will allow another 10 generations of young people to enjoy his important classics.”
Studio Virtasia’s unique Motion Picture Book editing & production techniques, for all the Hans Christian Andersen’s stories, will we believe, allow the entire world, to experience the fantastic tales of this great story teller, exactly as he would have wanted them to be experienced.
The Hans Christian Andersen
Motion Picture Books
Each H.C. Andersen Motion Picture Book will comprise two different elements.
The First Element will be a 3D animated storyteller, sitting in h Hans Christian Andersen museum, in Denmark, reading the words of each book, to a small group of children. In each Motion Picture Book, the storyteller will be a high quality 3D animation of H.C. Andersen himself, in period dress to suit his position in the museum.
The Second Element will be 3D animated scenes, drawn from each magical Book, as H.C. Andersen reads the words aloud, to the audience from his book..
Within each Motion Picture Book, there are no actors, doing the various voices of all the different characters. The only voice which will be heard throughout any one Motion Picture Book, will be that of the voice over actor playing Hans Christian Andersen, reading the book aloud, as the Storyteller.
This is because Motion Picture Books , are not a screenwriter’s interpretation of Hans Christian Andersen’s writings. Rather they are a verbatim presentation, of exactly each and every one, of Hans Christian Andersen’s written words. This allows young people, to enjoy Hans Christian Andersen’s books, exactly the way he wanted them to be enjoyed. Rather than the way a screenwriter wants you to appreciate, his or her, personal interpretation, of Hans Christian Andersen words.
Approximately 50% of the 3D animations, within each Motion Picture Book, will be of Hans Christian Andersen reading the story in his library, to the group of children. The other 50% of 3D animations, will be scenes containing all the characters, acting out what Hans Christian Andersen is reading to the group of children.
The Setting of Each Fairy Tale
The main reason for undertaking the H.C. Andersen project, is to get young children from all corners of the planet, to be once again interested in the stories, and culture, of H.C. Andersen.
To best achieve this goal, the team at Studio Virtasia believe any story lines, must be aimed at trying to encourage young people and their families, to visit Denmark and the H.C. Andersen Museum.
This will be achieved by setting each fairy tale story line, within the museum in Denmark. To accomplish this we will produce a life like animation of H.C. Andersen sitting in an exact 3D animated replica of the inside of the museum. At the beginning of each fairy tale, a group of young 3D animated children who are visiting the museum, will rush over to H.C. Andersen sitting in his chair, within the museum, and ask him to tell them a story. Which he will proceed to do, as the all sit down in front of him.
The chair that H.C. Andersen sits in, will be an exact 3D model of a chair, that has been specifically built for the project, and placed within the museum. An exact 3D model of the room the chair sits in, will also be created for the fairy tales. Hence, children will want their families to take them to the museum in Denmark, so they can see the mystical chair etc, that they have seen H.C. Andersen sit in so many times, and tell his magical tales.
The Importance of Hans Christian Andersen
Motion Picture Books
It is critically important, that new generations of young people, get to fully appreciate the wordsmith abilities, of Hans Christian Andersen. Movie and video interpretations of his work, do not allow this to occur, as they are merely screenwriters interpretations of his works.
However, with young people having so much instant access to millions of videos online, it is difficult to convince young people today, to sit down and read a good book.
Motion Picture Books or MOOKs are a new entertainment medium, which combine the written words of books, with exciting 3D animations. This is a medium, young people can associate with, and appreciate.
