The Singing Walrus team met in the vibrant city of Cologne, Germany, to launch an ambitious long-term project: reviving a series of ancient tales from around the world and bringing them beyond their cultural borders!
Our goals for the Fairy Tale Project are high. With beautiful music, poetic writing, artistic illustrations and fun animation, we want this project to be more than just a representation of stories and their cultures. Every artist will strive to incorporate elements of the specific culture into their work, thus becoming a living example of global fusion.
Our project starts with a Korean folk tale called “Sun and Moon”, an ancient and well-known story of how the sun and moon came to being. German illustrator and animator Kerstin Unger will be the featured artist to provide the visual art. It was exciting to spend a whole workshop afternoon with her to come up with storyboards.
