Hi everyone!
I am a little unsure about posting this, but figured that I would let you know encase it interested anyone.

In short, I am an actor/writer/director who has been making web series and films of various natures for the past couple of years.

I have just released, a few days ago, the first (now second) episode of a web series adapted from my all time favourite game of all time, Secret of Mana.

I just thought that I would share this with you encase it interested anyone.

I made the series because SOM has been a massive influence in so much of my life. I am a very spiritual person, and I would say that it was The Secret of Mana that was responsible for really opening my heart to this way of thinking. Mana is life and life is Mana. It just resonates so much for me. In addition, it taught me concepts of love, loss, and friendship to a point where they actually meant something. That might sound overdramatic, but at age eight when I first played this, I had not witnessed or known anyone close to me who had died or really left my life at that point. Mana made me consider these things in more detail.

The music has always stayed with me too. I listen to it when writing, walking, and just needing to think about things. There is something quite magical about it that really takes me to another world.

Though my love for the game went beyond what was confided to the television screen. I was always the imaginative kid – the one who didn’t play football, but engaged in imaginary make believe games. I would pretend to be Randi (the game’s protagonist) as I explored forests looking for Rabites with my stick (sword) in hand. I wanted so badly to do that in real life! The Series of Mana is a way of living out that dream.

I actually thought of doing this series around five years ago, but then quickly dismissed it as not being achievable. I believed that it needed far more money and the logistics were impossible for someone like me to create, but as time went on, and I continued to gain more experience, it really became clear to me exactly how I can do it, and I really had no reason not to do it.

I wanted to make this amazing world a reality. To bring the characters to life beyond a screen and to go on that adventure I wanted to as a child, but this time I am not going at it alone. I will be bringing you (the viewers!) and a whole host of friends along for the ride!

Please note that the entire first series was made with 300 pounds. So, I am sure that there will be many detractors because of that, but there you go. I am used to working with next to no budget. I did what I could with what I had. Episodes are every Saturday till the 6th ep. Then a 2nd series is being filmed.

Many thanks for your time! :)
