Titania “I pray thee, gentle mortal, sing again: Mine ear is much enamour’d of thy note; So is mine eye enthralled to thy shape; And they fair virtue’s force perforce doth move me On the first view to say, to swear, I love thee.”
William Shakespeare A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Pazzaria Productions & Pazzaria Interconnected Media magikcally and proudly presents….
In grand, innovative style, we are updating our current corporate website. We are injecting much more story into the whole thing. We are moving away from this notion that a website should be within the same ideation as an “interactive magazine”, but, rather, taking more of the production thrust of a theme park attraction, at it’s core.
We have four wizards, forming our coven, that showcase the various areas of Pazzaria Productions. Through this presentation actually comes the creation of the world of Light (as showcased in our books).
William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” app…
This fun, highly interactive, hilarious piece of wondrous poetry will come to life in a fun, interactive app!
It will be almost video game-like.
What we are bringing to the table is this idea of integrating this timeless tale with our “The Lost Rose” series, for an unforgettable online adventure!
The Legend of the Lost Rose is an interactive touch screen fairy tale available on Apple and other venues. It is compatible with Apple products and was written by the owner and CEO Daniel L Rappaport, the creator of Pazzaria productions. This is my review below and I will also post it on Twitter. #fantasy#fairytaleTeam Pazzaria Productions
Legend of the Lost Rose Suggested reading and summary by Jane Hoffman
Spark is a flying frog with special artistic gifts that he uses to express the value of his world. He likes to paint pictures of bugs who were once his friend, wildlife, symbols of nature that add magic to his world. He embraces a simple life in which he would like to enjoy his intricate pleasures of painting, music, reading and collecting art history within his comfortable cave he has tailor made. As the story unfolds, he discovers he has been called to be instrumental in removing evil from the land he lives in called LIGHT based on enemy infiltration that desire the secrets of a rose with special juices that are rare and offer long life. Good forces have come into his life to warn him and teach him how to combat the dark elements. He magnetizes toward Miss Buttergrow, an older woman from the Rainbow World who teaches him how to assert his energy while protecting hidden gifts of energy in the Land of Light where he lives.
She had access to a powerful black vial that Apovil, the head of the dark energy and original ruler of the world, wants to possess along with his minions. Spark must stop Apovil from mustering his bad energy on the earth. It turns out that Apovil was in the land of LIGHT alone and he solely created all the creatures that now exist including fantasy creatures such as horses with spikes instead of tails and gigantic butterflies. Apovil created a mystical world of balance and beauty. He also is 1000 years old and is losing the powerful creative energy of his youth in which he once created thousands of roses to fuel the land. Throughout the 144 page story, Spark will learn on his journey how to create special magic sources from Mrs. Buttergrow.
His mission is to take the vial of blue moonlight magic to the oldest of the Grand Roses and fully restore the City of LIGHT. Spark was chosen by the prophets to accomplish this mission. Spark must move out of his comfort zone and expose himself to the world around him which will provide him growth and skills. The story has a lot of thought behind it and beautiful imagery. The underlying theme of the story is the forces of good and evil and the attempt to conquer evil through magick. (spelling from story) Apovil did not start using dark energy until his powers were shrinking and then he became predatory.
This book is available through Apple and can be ordered through Pazzaria Productions. There are touch screen elements in which you can order items from the story for your collection such as a box with a rose or a painting of a mansion.
Pazzaria Productions is bringing something entirely new and different to the world of entertainment.
This is the idea of “User Interactive Merchandise”. These are items that are either integral to a character’s plot, and/or move your own personal story forward, within our world.
As an example…. In Chapter 1 – “A Spark Full of Life!” of the epic Apple Book, “The Legend of the Lost Rose”, our hero, Spark the flying frog, is seen painting one of his usual masterpieces.
“Over the past year, a specialized area of interest has presented itself to Spark. He has heard about this “Grand Lost Rose”. It is the most revered flower in all of LIGHT. The juice, when extracted with special machines, is said to make one love everything, and live forever. The people whom have had this new type of rose are called the Roseela.
The flowers, nor the juice, are easy to come by. Due to the rose’s intense power, one cannot simply pick it. Even looking at them alive for more than a few minutes can stun a person. So they must be grown in ways that is are best for one’s health while attempting to preserve all of the benefits of this mysterious flower.
The cost is so high, that only a small handful of factories can produce the juice. And at that, even a smaller number of creatures living in LIGHT can afford it.
Of course, the purest of these flowers is the red rose. Medicinal potions are made from lesser flowers from different colors, but, these aren’t nearly as powerful.
This rose species is so special to Spark that he’s painted its likeness upon a keepsake box. In here, he keeps his most valuable treasures.”
Spark the Flying Frog is a combination of many different aspects of my life.
For one, he’s gay, as am I.
He’s a multi-media artist, as am I.
He flies. Sorry. I am still working on that one.
He has many aspects of my own personality, yet makes decisions that I wouldn’t always make.
In my humble opinion, he spends way too much time on his art. And yet, I am, as well, simultaneously jealous, as that is a key secret to his wide success.
He definitely likes to take control, in situations, as much as he possibly can.
When he starts to learn magick, at first he is apprehensive, as he is quite confused to the benefits, and how this would even help with his art making.
Yet, as time goes on, he realizes that it serves as an extremely important and valuable tool to saving the planet of Light.
I definitely wanted him to be faery like, yet not a faery.
This is where the wings come in.
The kind of frog that he meets is, as well, extremely intelligent. He, in fact, has a college degree. His name is Petite. Aside from the fact that he gets Spark out of an extremely precarious situation upon meeting, they two’s personalities merge and coalesce perfectly together.
Why a frog?
I think that the frog form is really interesting.
There aren’t a whole lot of stories where frogs are the heroes.
I kind of feel for this important race, and wanted to do it justice.
Perhaps you will feel a little bit differently about frogs, after experiencing my books?
