Port Sebastian: The Back Story

In the time it took me to develop a clear view of how I wanted to tell my doll stories, I took a couple years’ worth (ok , several years’ worth) of photos and made several slide show videos, making all sorts of mistakes along the way and changing my mind countless times about the way I wanted to go about it. Finally, I decided that:.

.

  1. I wanted to attempt to create a web series that is part stop-motion animation and part slide show
  2. I wanted to do it with voices rather than the mixture of speech bubbles, captioned dialog, and text-to-speech (in one video) that I’d used before, and
  3. I wanted to tell an ongoing scripted story, with scenes and plots and twists, in soap-opera style, rather than simply “glimpses” into various characters’ lives as I’d done before.

But (cue record-scratch sound here), I had to rethink numbers 1 and 2 for SO many reasons – mainly a lack of the time and resources needed to pull off something like that. I may be able to do that later in life at some point, but for now my direction is to stick with number 3 and to do it in photo-story format. 

.

So, I’m still building sets, writing scripts, and planning, with hopes of debuting Season One by the summer of 2019.

Many of my older photos, slideshows, and videos either told a piece of a story or allowed a glimpse into the backgrounds of some of the characters. Port Sebastian: The Back Story explains how it all began and provides insight into the characters and stories you will see unfolding in Season One(Also see Misc & Fun Stuff for a wide range of posts about dolls, characters, and sometimes silliness. Some of the character posts give a tiny bit more background into their lives.)
