Well, it's been some time since our last post. Things are going good in the Constellation world, and we've been really busy working hard on trying to get the Constellations out there. We have some new concepts and characters that we think will really help bring some dynamic to the group. What do you think about the two new characters on the sides?

Also we have been working on the idea of creating toys of the girls. We have been in talks with an amazing sculptor, so hopefully sometime soon. We will have more info for you next week.
Also was wondering if anyone would be interested in T-shirts of the constellations? If anyone was, what do you think would look cool for the T-Shirt? Either all the girls together, maybe just one or two, in their mythical or human forms? Well if anyone has idea's let me know, and we'll make it happen. Our plans are to put them on cafepress.com after we design them.

Hey hey, Chris Dainty here. Well we did our pitch and we didn’t even mess up a line. We got some really helpful constructive criticism, which was a huge help. We are working on writing some new episode ideas then we will re submit and who knows maybe it will take off one day soon. But overall we are really happy of what we pitched, and it seemed to go over good. We will keep you posted.
So lets talk about the origin of this show idea. Well it all started with Jess, she had an idea about four girls that lived in a magical place where anything was possible. Then I asked her, "Hey want to work on this idea together?" So we started to build the world of the Constellations. The overall idea came from us tossing ideas back and forth of what these mythical creatures could be. Then the idea, Constellations came about. We looked in a book to see if there even was constellations to the characters Jess had designed. We make some changes, one being that Picey was at one point a fairy, which we changed to being the fish.
Jessica did all the designs for the characters as I wrote the show bible. We would often toss ideas back and forth to what they should look like, we even based Dr. Logic off a friend of ours, which was really funny. With our first episode that we wrote Jess came up with the idea for a talent show. I wrote the episode but every step of the way would bounce ideas back and forth. Finally after everything was written, I took Jess' AMAZING artwork and put it together for our show bible. And then 6 months later we both had a show pitch under our belt.
It’s been a great experience working with Jess, and so many others on this project.
I just wanted to thank;

Without these people help we wouldn’t have developed a show that I'm so proud to have my name on. It’s really been a great experience working on this show, and now its at the point were we are at the fine tuning stage and we'll see where it leads us.
