About Mind’s Eye:
Story Line: Illia Fairchild is a 12-year-old boy. He likes to draw and build forts. He likes to fantasize about far off lands filled with Knights and Wizards and Pirates. He fights with his Grandfather sometimes, he dozes off during math class, and he’s pretty good at baseball. He has a crush on a girl, but is terrified of telling her. He also wishes he had a dog. But what he doesn’t know, is that he’s being hunted.
For centuries a war has been fought between the terrifying Daemon and the righteous Seraphim. They are searching for a human with the power to tip the balance of power in their favour and finally put the war to rest, and that child is Illia.
Closing in on Illia, the war is spilling into the streets of a small suburban town, which is becoming a land filled with mystery and danger. Illia is not alone in his fight. His neighbourhood friends are humanity’s greatest heroes and they’ve sworn to protect Illia from the harsh reality of the war until he is old enough to understand his place in it.
Known as The Dreamweavers, these heroes possess the ability to alter reality with their imaginations. Powerful warriors from different cultures and time periods, the Dreamweavers disguise themselves as children and work behind the scenes to give Illia a chance to find his own way in a world filled with expectations.
A quiet and introverted 12 year old boy in the ‘everyday’ world, Illia is a talented artist and daydreamer who throws himself with gusto into a world of fantasy rather than deal with mundane stresses of the world around him. Illia is being raised by his grandfather Marty and spends most of his free time with his long-time friends.
Cautious, shy and seemingly a harmless boy, Illia could become the most powerful Dreamweaver in history, being the only human ever born influenced by the energies of both Seraphim and Daimon. As Illia matures and learns more about his true identity, he wrestles with the implications of his power to shape the world forever.
The series was shot over 26 days from July 6th, 2010 till August 6th, 2010. The script was 240 pages in length, or approximately three (3) feature films.
The Premiere episode launches Friday November 26th. 2010 and the Season Finale will debut on Friday May 6th, 2011. There are 24, 5-10 minute episodes in all, and a new episode will be available every Friday after November 26th on the MIND’S EYE website at http://www.mindseyeseries.com/
This is the third incarnation of the MIND’S EYE idea. The first was produced by Thomas Gofton in 2007 as a short film. The second was the series’ concept/pilot produced by Synn Studios in the Spring of 2009.
Many of the members of the MIND’S EYE crew appear in cameos throughout the series, including Director of Photography Nick Montgomery, Sound Designer Aaron Soch and Publicist Adam A. Donaldson. As well, Cameron Parkinson, who plays one of the Shadow’s Hands minions appears in a scene as a bystander without his cloak.
Andrew Ellis, who plays the younger Mark in MIND’S EYE, is already an award-winning film maker in his own right. He’s won two awards – one each from the 2008 and 2010 editions of the 24 Hour Film Challenge at Ed Video Media Arts Centre.
MIND’S EYE Art Director Seth Rowanwood was the 2010 recipient of the L. Ron Hubbard Gold Award for Illustrator of the Future, which was presented this past August in Los Angeles.
