Sterling Light Productions has optioned the book: ‘The Oaks Remain’ written by Julia Gibbs.  This is the first book of an upcoming trilogy to be released.

Synopsis:  In a world divided by blood and race, Veralee Harper comes of age under the guardian oaks of her family’s isolated plantation in southern Alabama. Red Oaks stands frozen in time, a haven for Simulacrum people for generations, against the chaotic world of the Friguscor. Life quickly unravels when her own split second decision breaks the Simulacrum law she is bound to keep. The blood moons have begun, the watchers have returned and war with the cold-hearts, the Friguscor, seems inevitable. She struggles to reconcile a deep love for her family and loyalty to her people, with the reality she is coming to know and the love she finds in mysterious man from her dreams.  She realizes she is marked by more than the tseeyen on her arm. Many have a plan for Veralee Harper, but only she can decide which way she will go.

ANIMATION: MOSQUITA RITA


Mosquita Rita is a project that we acquired from Sue Alexander. It started as a set of 20 songs that Sue performed to children for a number of years. Then it became a novel that she penned along with the songs and cartoon drawings of the characters.  The intention is to create an animated feature that incorporates all of the story elements.

 

Mosquita Rita  – As sleeping eggs awaken to darkness and strange sounds of a rushing train, they quickly adapt to their environment as wrigglers in water atop a wooden barrel on the train. Gloria is the oldest of the mosquito clan, Rita the youngest. Rita learns many lessons from her wiser, older sister Gloria and is devastated when Gloria sacrifices her life to save the others.  After the clan escapes the assault of a housefly by falling into another barrel below, they grow tired and enter the resting stage.  The barrel is unloaded from the train and the water dumped on the ground. Then family emerges as full grown mosquitos with wings and mobility.  Rita takes flight to discover sights and wonders of Old Mexico with her younger brother Joey. Soon a Mexican male mosquito, Hal, joins the entourage.  Detesting flower nectar, Rita’s preference is blood.  Her quest for feeding entails danger.   Rita is slapped by a human and catapulted to a new reality beyond Earth. Determined to return to her friends and family, Rita visits the Place of Sounds to find her own zzzt, that magical sound that belongs only to Rita, the sound that will bring life back to her on earth.

The story is funny, educational, song-filled and suspenseful.
