It’s premiere time. Season 1 of our show ‘The Bureau of Magical Things’ begins THIS SUNDAY at 10:30am on Eleven. Get your kids in front of it!
I’ve been trying to post this for a while but until now hadn’t the strength. I think it’s time.
Almost two weeks ago we lost my friend Ricky Edwards. Ricky and I worked together on 3 seasons of Mako Mermaids, James Cameron’s Deepsea Challenge 3D, and began working on the upcoming ‘The Bureau of Magical Things’. He was a brilliant man, who burned so brightly with such energy and intensity. Ricky was someone I respected and admired, a man of exceptional talents whom I was often in awe of. I learnt much from him and continue to do so and will be forever grateful to him for asking me to join him in writing for Mako and more. He and I formed a bond that went beyond mere colleagues and I am utterly devastated by his passing. My heart goes out to his beautiful family.
Vale my friend.
I’m very excited to share with you all what I’ve been working on for the past many months. The new series from prolific producer Jonathan M Shiff (Mako Mermaids, H20, Lightning Point, The Elephant Princess etc) called The Bureau of Magical Things.
Please watch the trailer for series 1 above. Music by yours truly. The series is set to air on Network Ten locally here in Australia and on ZDF in Germany, Austria and Switzerland with further distribution worldwide. I will update you all when I have airdates and more information.
From the ZDF website:
“This extraordinary original series follows the adventures of teenage girl Kyra who is magically transformed into a Tri-ling when caught in a clash between an elf and a fairy. Now being part human, part fairy and part elf, her new friends Lily (a fairy) and Imogen (an elf) introduce her to their secret world and take her to a magic school headed by Professor Maxwell. Here Kyra learns how to control her newfound magical powers and begins to lead a double life. When Kyra develops powerful unpredictable magic, and the source of her power is revealed, she becomes a valuable weapon and an unexpected threat emerges. These young guardians, humans, fairies and elves must unite to save both their worlds.”
I haven’t seen / heard all of these but there are some cracking scores amongst them. Looks like I have some homework…
