  1. Retimed and upped the Tempo, how this is more fun ^-^, thanks for the suggestion, think we will kept this upped version until final recording.
  2. Hi there, thank you. The song has been retweeked, we are in fact waiting for the final VA for Ink heart, to be announced at a later date. Wubcake is the current VA, standing in for her, she will for sure still be on crew after the productions roles. The song will be finalized at the point we get the final recordings, we really wanted to post this to get feedback before we did finalize it so thank you so much.
  3. Huge update today, we are now a week out from our panel at Ponyville Ciderfest 2019, the entire team had a great time, and was great to meet those that attended the panel. Baring some technical issues, think the panel went off well. With this I'd like to post, exclusively to Poniverse something we have been planning for a great long while. This is First Steps, the very first of what will be many musical numbers through the course of the series in development, the song is about the journey between Ink Heart and Tall Tales relationship. Starting as a solo song, Ink Heart joins in to have some fun with him, before long they start to play off each other realizing they do have something in common. Finally towards the end their songs join together in a duet, as their story becomes one, and their first steps on the road to friendship begins. Singing talents- Caleb Hyles (Tall Tale), Wubcake (Ink Heart) Enjoy, and please let us know what you think, this is one of the items going into the pilot and we want it to literally sing (to early for puns). More scenes coming shortly, these are all works in progress so please keep that in mind, the pilot as it stands is roughly 50% completed storyboard side. Thank you all, from the Equestrian Tales production crew!
  4. Attention Everypony, the time has come is nearly upon us, to anyone attending Ponyville Ciderfest this year, we would like to invite you to a special panel, being held on Saturday, November 2nd from 3:30 to 5:30 pm, From Script to Screen- Inside pony animation. FiM maybe over, but their legacy will live on in the hearts and creative minds of its fans, let us show you there is still something to look forward, or behind to (wink). Harmonize Entertainment will be hosting the panel, most noticeably Minty Root, we will be sharing with you over the 2 hours how pony is brought to life, with a sneak peek into a few up coming productions, and a few surprises in relation to the development of Equestrian Tales. Please join us, or you might miss something........ as well as some extra fun that will only be available for those attending the panel Equestrian Tales has not fallen, we have been working hard this last year to bring together something special, we just couldnt talk about it was all. We will be presenting something at the panel you wont want to miss. See you there!
  5. Merry Birthiversary! 

  6. Hi there, frankly stopped posting updates as we have been working on alot of stuff, and things are in the pipeline right now for a formal pitch, we didnt want to end up posting something that might end up getting us in trouble. Just been playing it safe till we are past that stage. We are working to bring investors into our animation studio, bringing on more traditional classic animators, talking to some producers, working on alot of business side stuff. The moment I can say whats happening, or timelines you guys will be the first to know, I will say if things go as planned we could have some great stuff out within a year, but I cant give exact dates as things are in the pipeline. I will make updates when things I feel we can talk about are happening I will for sure post. Might have some stuff coming up, and might need some outside help with stuff like quality assurance for the screenplay, story, and that. We want to make the best product we can, and who best to ask then the fans that have kept the brand alive all these years. If you might be interested in something like that please PM me, just a warning on that, of course it would spoil some stuff story side for ya. Thank you so much, we have put our hearts and souls into the development of these, and the entire cast really. This story, the world and characters they are all working together to (we hope) bring you a great experience. Our cast and crew thanks you from the bottom of our hearts for your support ^_^.
  7. We in fact had a few, but the animation was shown at 2D Vs 3D ponies panel 2:00 - 3:00 on Friday. Hosted by Mintyroot. We had a much bigger Eqt panel planned and approved but we lost it week before the con due to the surprise of the holiday special so we got bumped off, but still got to show some of the work.
  8. Hi there, I wanted to address your comment, this is not Equestrian Tales, but a production among a few others we have worked on and designed to test out assets, and techniques that will be and are being used in the production of the Equestrian Tales pilot episodes. We are a bit off still in getting animations for Eqt out, but wanted to show what it might look like. We are using the same effects, lighting systems, pretty much everything but the rigs as they will be worked and designed to fit a more traditional animation environment. These are also just teasers, the final animation of these will be out asap, not even made to many editing passes yet. We wanted to show everyone the quality that we intend to bring, and what we can really do. On a second note, the story of Eqt does in fact take place over 1000 years in the past of the FiM timeline, before the founding of Equestria. For example, Luna and Celestia are only kids when our pilot takes place. We wanted to test some of the techniques being put in as the characters and settings were being worked out, so decided to make some fan animations to get bugs worked out.
  9. Yet another update! This time with some animation! These are the videos shown at Ciderfest this last weekend, and want to bring them to you for the first time. These will not appear on youtube proper, and for your eyes only, we are using these to showcase what the team can do, and the style we are hoping to bring to the MLP universe. Please note the character rigging will be different for Eqt to more blend with the 2D backgrounds and elements. This animation is about Sunset Shimmer, and should be finished around January or February, animation by Minty Root a long time and lead animator for Eqt. Got more to come Hope you enjoy and Stay pony!!! Look out for that Mirror as it plays a role in the pilot of Equestrian Tales aswell. And a more extended opening scene. The background style, lighting and other elements will be used in the animation of Equestrian Tales and this is the test bed for a lot of it.
  10. The Equestrian Tales team would like to wish you all a happy and fun Nightmare Night, we'd also like to take this time to welcome two returning members, Skybolt, and Screwloose. Welcome back to the team, we have missed you so much! In other news we are a step closer to making this dream a reality, we have reached out to a toy manufacture for an upcoming project that will be announced as soon as we are ready, but here is a sneak peek! Big thanks to the crew who has been working on these plushies! They stand 12 inches tall, and will be available for an upcoming release, and give away. Stay tuned for more information on this. Also added their character sheets for referance, what do ya think? With this we'd to announce an Indiegogo Campaign currently being built, these toys are only one part of this and will not be nearly as pricey as people might think, we will also be giving some out at up coming conventions at panels our studio is part of, stay tuned for updates on that as well. These are the first of many items being built for an Indiegogo to complete the pilot episode, a full music album (cd/vinyl/download) is being created, an art book, patches, sheet music, studio artwork, animation cels, figures, and so much more. Tried to get a little something for everyone into this. We will be making an official announcement as soon as things are ready to go. Thank you every pony for all your support and wonderful comments, you have kept us going through dark times, and if not for you we wouldnt still be here. Cheers and pony on!
  11. Happy Nightmare Night everypony! All bow before the Princess, as we are her children of the night!

    Just something my team put together a year ago, enjoy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrngcNy_tnw
  14. I will for sure be putting it here, I would be this weekend if not for a coding issue, this animation relates to Sunset Shimmer. But its being used to show what the team can do, what a lot of the elements of Eqt will look like on screen, and frankly be a lot of fun. It is similar in design to Luna's Determination another one of our productions.
  15. This is the very last I will ever reply on this topic as I have covered it several times and we are committed to the end game here, no matter what it is. To try to answer, we have spent all this time not just working on this one production, yes we started this studio 7 almost 8 years ago now, but this production has only been in development for around 2 years, animation takes a lot of time and careful planning to make a product worth a companies attention. We have also spent all this time building a bridge between us and Hasbro so a pitch and idea like this might be easier to get through, and we are almost there. If you think FiM took a week to plan you might want to talk to Lauren about that. These things do not happen over night, and we are doing everything within reason to get this approved. Every production goes through these stages, they evolve and grow as the need and teams abilities grow. Once again go back and look at the pitch bible for FiM, yes a lot ended up in the show, but much of it has changed and evolved, even before the show aired, thats a very normal thing. Also this will change more once Hasbro does get involved as they will have changes for us as well. We have been given a road map to follow by not only hasbro but others on how to do this, and we have been following it to the letter, we have had some issues in the past, but frankly Hasbro is a very worth while company, and if we did think so we would be pushing forward with it. In the mean time we have productions on there way right now, one that will be shown in 2 weeks at Ciderfest.
