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;
Jessica - The constellations is nothing without your amazing art!
Gerry - Thanks for your animation help, you’re a genius animator
Juan - Thanks for helping us sparkle with your AMAZING special effects
Ren - Always great working with you
Max - Your music gave our show something great, your crazy talented!
Kyle - Great work, its been awesome getting to know you. You gave me so many good ideas
Norrie - Your the Pro Tools master!
Alana - Thanks for fixing me bad grammar hehehe
Andrea - Thanks for the late night last min grammar fixes you helped me big time
Michel - Seeing the start of it all, thanks for all the ideas.
Sylvie - You gave our show an iconic logo, Thank you SO MUCH!
Maral - Picking our show to be pitched at the animation festival
-All the people that we dropped by their house to practice our pitch, thanks for lessening
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.

Chris Dainty here, well this has been one roller coaster ride for me these last two months. From losing a good friend, to seeing my dreams in my career materialize it’s been an eventful time in my life. I've been working hard on my company Dainty Productions and just finished up my first contract for a small animated piece that will be featured in a documentary on CBC this Sunday the 16th at noon.
Apart from The Constellations, Jess and I have both independently been working on our own show pitches. I've been working on creating a show pitch for my short Emma Graves and Jess has been working on creating a show bible for her short Pandas. I will try and put these shorts up on the blog in the near future.

"was wondering do they have to go back to their 'star' form?"
And the answer is that in every episode it starts with them popping out of the night sky in the early morning. And every episode ends at dusk with The Constellations jumping off the clouds and turning back into their constellation star form.
Saturday, July 01, 2006
Up in the clouds, anything the imagination can think of creating is possible. The Constellations have the ability to shape the clouds into whatever objects that come to mind. Thinking up ideas and adding a little bit of star dust to the clouds is all the Constellations have to do, so there is never a shortage of games or toys.
We want to thank everyone who has dropped in and commented on our work- we really appreciate all the support as it motivates us to work harder!!

Calling all big shots, if your a network exec and want to learn more about this show please email us and we can send you some more info about "The Constellations". We currently have the first episodes script written, and we are developing more storylines everyday. Now if your not a big shot but would like to help us out we would really appreciate your comments on our stuff. What do you like? What don't you like? How do you think we could make this an even better idea.

Celeste loves candy and romance novels. She giggles and blushes during the kissy chapters.

The Constellations magically tranform into their human form using their 'cloud powder kits' located at the side of the mountain.

She is a great friend to have for the other girls, she will stand up for her freinds no matter what. Especially for Celeste (the dragon) she is a bit goofy and falls victim of teasing from the other kids. If the girls are down about something Aurora will always be the one to give them the motivational speech they need to get back on track.
Well folks here is a new pic to feast your eyes on. Yes sir, this is a marketers dream TV show. Not only do we have four characters, but they have duel identities (think of the toy possibilities, it's nuttiness.) If you look back to the first post you can see "The Constellations" in the human form that they take when in the little town at the bottom of Mount Evermyst. They are sliding down the Big Dipper slide in this pic. It takes them from the star world to the top of Mount Evermyst in the clouds. The girls play in the clouds during the day.
We would love to hear some feedback about what people think of the show. Our target audience is girls aged 6-12. So if you happen to have a child around that age, get them to check out the pics and leave a comment. If you happen to be a 28 year old living in your parents' basement eating cheetos, we would still like to hear from you too. Next week, we will be posting loads more images, and we'll need lots of feedback (preferably people in our target audience). So if you know any little ones, send them this way to leave a comment. Also, please include in your comments, your age and gender. Thanking you in advance for your time.
p.s. To all you creative types that come up with shows, don't steal our ideas! Stealing is bad Karma, besides it's already copyrighted.

I Like Pandas , is a short created by Jessica Borutski in 2005. It was featured on Nicktoons last year and it was extremely popular. Jess and Chris are developing this idea further into a show for pre-school children. The idea is simple, two Panda's that go out everyday and explore the world.
To watch the short go to www.jessicaborutski.com
The cartoon speaks for itself.
Now this character Picey is very exceptional. She is the voice of reason with the girls, minus the fact that she doesn’t have a voice. Sometimes the other girls don't understand what she is trying to say. Picey doesn't talk but communicates using pictures. It’s like a big game of charades with Picey. She projects above her forehead what she is trying to say, example she would show an image of a screw then of a baseball, to express a thought she might have.

Hi this blog is to showcase the development of a new cartoon in the works from animators Jessica Borutski and Chris Dainty. The last couple of months we have been working really hard on this show idea and have written a script and designed the main characters. We would love to hear feedback on what you think of our stuff.
