your Business Concept
In the beautiful seaside village of Knysna you will find a team of people, sharing a common
dream, that of animation!. Walter Corbett and Erik van Niekerk joined forces in pursuing
this dream, and were later joined by unique individuals like Pieter Kruger, an artist “par
excellence”, father of Brother Zeb a weekly Cartoon Strip published locally as well as
online, artists like Duncan de Weerd, Carlyle Lodewyk, Raen Messina, Malibongwe to name
a few, who all completed their first comic books produced by SparkLife Studios.
But the dream did not stop here! Their dream is to produce a
full length animated movie of cinema quality, using local
talent, and local animators, depicting uniquely South African
scenarios, with an enormous international interest.
So where do they find animators on the beautiful Garden
Route, more known for its beauty as holiday spot than for
animation? They train them of course.
How About Competitors
As such no competition in the market since our projects are majorly focused upon Social Causes.
Over a period of 4 years Walter Corbett studied, investigated
and researched and finally produced a full basic training
course in animation, covering all the basics of what needs to
be done. Today, SparkLife Studios has a model for training
animators and utilizing those skills under the guidance of
well-known and respected animators like Jan de wet Cilliers
and Warren Esherich. This not only creates employment, but
gives an avenue to local talent to live their dreams!
To date the SparkLife Studios team has crafted
a number of stories, produced a comic book (to act as a
'up-engined' storyboard), to be followed by the
‘construction ‘of an animated movie.
Our aspiration is to craft a series of movies featuring
protagonists that are uniquely South African and it is
with this in mind that we have written stories and in fact
produced comics like:
Xai of the Khoisan and the Black Caravel
The story of evil sailors, a caravel ship and slavery! All
playing off against the backdrop of the Knysna Heads
Xai of the Khoisan and The Return of the Anunnaki
Everything to make it fascinating and exciting at the
same time, Aliens, stone circles, giants, gold and of
course, the Khoisan, abduction and human cloning!
How Invest Money
FUNDING FOR THE ANIMATION of Stefanie will not only
create employment, desperately needed in our town,
it will steer remarkable individuals into the exciting world of animation
and sustain them on an ongoing basis, producing future South African animators and film producers.
Sparklife Studios will be using a mix of animators that we have trained from the local community along with some highly skilled animators available to our Studio, specifically focussing on PDI’s.
Once this ‘formula’ has been established, we plan to repeat the cycle over and over for additional local and indigenous stories, all the while involving local talent in the writing, animating, musical, sound effects, etc. required in the process of crafting these stories.
It is our belief (somewhat confirmed by others) that the world is hungry for ‘new’ stories, told with ‘new’ protagonists and created using a ‘new’ approach.
It is with firm conviction that Sparklife Studios is ready to do so.
