our sounds

Hello True Tail Fans!

In the last few weeks we have been working on our comic and are thrilled by the comments and feedback you have all been giving us. However, we want you to know we have not stopped working on the pilot. Animation takes a lot of time and money, which is why we are working on prepping materials for our kickstarter so that when we launch it in the spring of 2018, it will have a higher chance of doing well. We are also still getting recordings done by our voice actors and need time to get our animatic, puppets and sound design ready before we begin animation. However, we plan on not animating anything for the pilot until after the kickstarter. The pilot episode is not just a few minutes, it is much longer and it would be unprofessional to ask artists to work on such an intensive project for free.

In the meantime we will continue to release fan art, sketches, comics and gifs to keep you entertained. We actually would love to hear from you! If there are any characters you want to see artwork of please let us know. You help us continue to bring strong content, and keep us motivated to do even better. Thank you for continuing to support our tale!

Please enjoy this fun piece of “artwork” from Daniel Lawhead.

Much Love!

Allison and Zach

PS: Expect another installment from our comic tomorrow.

being multilingual like...

What people think it’s like:

  • *speaks multiple languages fluently on command*
  • *is very sophisticated*

What it’s actually like:

  • constantly speaking to people in the wrong language
  • managing to squeeze 3 or 4 languages into one sentence without noticing
  • gradually forgetting your first and second language, while not speaking anything fluently anymore. not even your first language is safe
  • Grammar? What grammar? Which grammar??!!
  • being permanently confused
  • can’t even order bread at a Danish bakery after 2 years of language training
  • cry and curse yourself for moving somewhere where they don’t speak English or your first language. but mostly cry. and weep

This is the original test that I animated before we started production on Enchanted. It was done to test out the character and production design as well as our production pipeline. The sound comes from one of Amy Adam’s audition tapes which is why it sounds like it was recorded in a hotel room (which I believe it was!). Enjoy.

Our Ciel’s name

There are lots of speculations about our Ciel’s name and a lot of people think it could be a French word that is somehow related to “Ciel” (’sky’, ‘heaven’ in French) like “Astre” (’star’)

but what if OC’s name was “ciel/sky”, too, but just in another language??


So here’s a quick overview of what “ciel/sky” sounds like in other languages.

German (also Danish, Norwegian & Swedish):

Greek:

Japanese (*Note: “Sora” is an actual unisex name in Japan!):

Hungarian:

Portuguese:

Polish:

Chinese:

Irish: (it seems it’s pronounced similarly to the English word “spare” I’m crying)

And now we can all understand how French people feel about the fictional name “Ciel”.


Bonus: Here’s a template, so feel free to use it and add “ciel/sky” in your language! xD (And let me know if ‘sky’ is an actual name in your country!)

please stop assuming all asian musicians are naturally talented prodigies!!! there is no such thing as ~~natural talent~~ and we all work our butts off to get good at what we do, so please learn to accept that!!!!

Okay but last night Taylor wasn’t even like CELEBRITY TAYLOR SWIFT when she was on here she was everyone’s pal just chillin on her blog, reblogging texts and videos,,,,,tags and comments?!???? She was our………..FRIEND? Sounds fake bUT IT’S NOT

tell me we were made for more than this
and our years on earth are more than
empty time, our words more than
sound, repeated over centuries by a million mouths
tell me your hand in mine means more than
the weaving of fingers and our breath is more than
atoms falling through an empty space.
