This is my piece for the 2 Year Anniversary of ‘Rise of the Guardians’.
Two years ago on the 23rd of December I finally managed to go and see the film, It was just myself and a father with his daughter. I had heard about the film from my friend in my graphic design class and she had bought in the art book for the film. I immediately loved it and I actually ordered the book before seeing the film xD.
I struggled not to cry during the scene when Jamie is talking to his bunny, did anyone else do this as a child?? But yeah it is just a masterpiece in my eyes. It really is the main reason I am studying Animation at university. It’s just very inspirational.
I just want to say thank you so much to the fandom. It has never died out and everyone respects and supports one another, I feel that we are all close as a fandom and I find that quite special. So to everyone in the fandom, thank you and this piece is dedicated to every single one of you :)
As I’m sure a lot of you know there has been a team of people working on a projected called ’ The Book Of Belief’ and the aim of this book it to send it to Dreamworks and hopefully convince them to make a sequel and to show appreciation of the film. The entire team has been working exceptionally hard and the book is near completion. So this piece is also dedicated to them :) Wish I could have included this in the book but never mind!
The final person I would like to thank is ionahi. She is an artist that has always made me smile, I adore her style, she has always stayed with the fandom and produced absolutely beautiful work. She has something very special inside :)
And a final thanks to the team at Dreamworks, Peter Ramsey, The Cast and of course William Joyce!
So yeah, sorry for a long post but I felt thanks were in order. I am sorry if I’ve missed anyone really important, I just chose a few people that really stuck out to me!
