Let’s make this experience a remarkable one!
((Just spent all day going through applications for the Book of Belief.
Man, it was tough but I feel like I finally have my team!
Please be patient for the results later tonight!))
Unfortunately the deadline has been long past. You may still submit to the blog, however!
This is a small message to thank all 40 applicants for their interest! I was amazed at the level of talent and professionalism you all displayed!
It’ll be a tough decision, but every single one of you will be taken into consideration.
I will contact you on Tuesday morn with my final decision.
All the best,
Just thought I’d give you a head’s up!
I’ve set up a paypal donation button on the main page for anyone that would like to start contributing. I am still fine-tuning details to determine the exact amount we’ll need, but I can promise you that every penny will go towards production and printing costs. Remember that this is a non-profit project; therefore, anything that goes over will be donated to local children’s hospital or similar charities. I will let you know more on that when the time comes.
As you know, the goal for this project is to print at least 6 copies to go to different executives at Dreamworks and to get them excited for a possible sequel; however, printing hardcover books is expensive and I don’t have the funds for it. This is where you come in!
Right now I’m aiming for $500 to cover everything (printing hardcover & full color, shipping & handling, etc) but I will have a more complete expense report later down the line.
Thank you so much for all your help so far, you’ve all been awesome!
Dear RoTG fandom,
I wanted to thank you all for your continuing support as we continue to work out the details of the Book of Belief. Your words of encouragement mean a lot to me, and I’m so happy to be part of a group of such determined and creative people!
However, due to several different…
For those of you who can’t wait, I’ll start the livestream with some sneak peeks and goodies before the movie @4pm!
Please be nice in the chat! SEE YOU SOON! <3
Come join us!
We’re very happy you would like to participate in the making of this project!

By applying to this project, you’re consenting to work through the completion of the book, remain in contact with the director and participate in weekly meetings where we’ll go over and discuss the work done so far.
Please think carefully about whether or not your schedule allows you to take on this extra work. We cannot afford with our time constraints to have anyone drop out of their position.
That said, please send us an e-mail to email@example.com with the following:
Subject line: Application for ‘position’

We will contact the selected participants through e-mail once we have time to review the applications.
Deadline: Monday, November 25th.
It’s time to put up or shut up!
I’ve been contacted by Moonbot Studios again regarding a possible Guardians sequel. I can’t say more than this, but there are efforts within Dreamworks to push hard for a sequel thanks to the success of the DVD/Blu-Ray and they’d like to have the Book of Belief in their hands for backup.
I originally thought I’d have more time for this but with these recent developments, I have to move much faster and efficiently. This project is too important and I can no longer do this alone.
That said, I need the following:
In charge of the cover/back and miscellaneous illustrations to go inside the book.
Graphic Designers (3)-
Create the look and layout of the pages and assemble the book in InDesign.
Goes over the entire book, makes sure there’s no mistakes and offers critique for improvements.
Please apply before: Monday, November 25th.
I’m not picky, but I’d like to find people with experience in the field, who can take direction, work in a team and put forth their best effort to make this project a success.
Please note that this is a non-profit fanmade project. All the work done on this book will not be paid. Unless you count a sequel as payment!
If you’re interested, please proceed to the application page! HERE
I will NOT answer to tumblr messages regarding applications.
I’ll be very busy until Monday, November 25th; therefore, I won’t have much spare time to look over the applications until then.
Hello Guardians of the Guardians!
Just a brief but heartfelt THANK YOU from all of us at Dreamworks Animation who worked on RISE OF THE GUARDIANS! We are all blown away and very moved by both your experiences with the movie and the truly beautiful work you’ve created…we’re very privileged to have fans who are as talented, as passionate and as in love with the world of the Guardians as we have been, and we want you to know how much we appreciate it.
We wish as much as you do that there could be a sequel! There are so many more stories to tell, so many more moments to share with these great characters. Who knows what the future holds? What I do know is that with artists and writers like you out there, there’ll NEVER be a shortage of Guardians tales…their world is your world.
For now we just want to extend our thanks for all you’ve done and for sharing it with all of us. (So many feels!!)
And most of all, thanks for believing, because we all believe in you.
Rise of the Guardians has given much inspiration to me and the many other people out there. It has made me believe in the guardians and relived the many happy moments of my childhood. It also has made me much more determined to pursue my dream as an animator (i hope i get the chance to work at Dreamworks *wink wink*). I hope to see a second movie for ROTG in the near future.
Name, Victoria Dickinson
I have been fortunate enough to have had a very happy childhood, so could readily enjoy the fun and warmth of Rise of the Guardians. But it wasn’t until I saw firsthand the joy and solace the Guardians offered to a child much less fortunate than I, that I could truly see what a difference such a magical world could have on someone in need of a little hope, wonder, memories, dreams and fun.
So whether it’s from a child helped through the holidays, or a university student trying to keep a hold of her childhood for as long as possible, thank you.
To everyone who was part of the making of Rise of The Guardians, to everyone who made this movie possible, to all the fans, to everyone in this big family
Thank you :)
What I made: Bracelets, one tied to my hand and the other around the ankle, which can make the ‘chink’ sound. hehe…*chink*
