The Magic Lantern Characters

Joe Rubino authored the book The Magic Lantern. A while ago, he asked me to visualize the characters from his book, to create a compelling kit to present movie-makers. The goal was not to refine them to Hollywood quality, but rather just to rough them out so producers could get the general idea and feel. So using the 3D software programs Quidam, Poser and Cinema4D on a laptop,... I modeled the characters, built some environment settings and props, and animated a rough storyboard,.. all while remaining inside a bootstrap budget.


The protagonist of the story is a boy named Jake…
