The concept of the story began when I wondered if a Tusken Raider had ever seen something like the ocean.
It was inspired from an experience one of my friends had, moving up from California and seeing snowfall for the first time. Which was amazing to hear the excitement.
I’ve also had this hairy Bantha toy staring at me, since I took him to the San Francisco Toy Meet-up in May. And, when I saw the latest version of the Lego Tusken Raiders, I knew I had to do something.
Introducing, T’ooph the Tusken Raider. And, Soap, his trusty Bantha
It’s a common dream; flying, falling.
It’s a long way up, sometimes worth it.
Sometimes we jump, sometimes we’re pushed.
The hardest part is deciding to take the leap.
Inevitably, a decision is made; embrace the choice and revel in it.
It’s a long way down.
Falling becomes flying.
Landing is another choice.

Great! I’ve found a place that looks like a forest! Look at that moss!
What could i place here?
Why not a minifig riding a motorbike?
Ok, sounds reasonable.
Why don’t make it a sidecar?
Ok, let’s do it. Who will be the passenger?
Why not a rabbit?
Ok, let’s do it.
Why don’t cornering the sidecar to make it looks taking a dangerous turn?
Yeah, a more dynamic pose, let’s do it.
Why are they together?
Don’t know. Strong bond like friendship?
Ok, everybody should have a rabbit as a friend.
Where are they going? What is going to happen?
Don’t know. Let’s take some pictures to find it out.

n. the eerie, forlorn atmosphere of a place that’s usually bustling with people but is now abandoned and quiet—a school hallway in the evening, an unlit office on a weekend, vacant fairgrounds—an emotional afterimage that makes it seem not just empty but hyper-empty, with a total population in the negative, who are so conspicuously absent they glow like neon signs.

Learn more about the six image narrative project here.
A picture is worth a thousand words. Especially when it comes to the picture of the mime.
The location was only believed to be legend – mentioned only in stories and folklore. After many years of research, the land was finally found. Forgotten by time a great beast lay dormant, encapsulated by earth, waiting to be discovered. Upon arrival, the seekers were welcomed by a great fog, presumably a bad omen. The men, driven by determination, carried on; for what lies beneath would certainly be the most significant find in paleontological history.
When Shelly first spoke to me about the concept of the Six Image Narrative during one of our regular video hangouts, I thought, “Cool! I can do that!” Little did I know, that just like being asked “Why”, this would prove to be a bigger challenge than I could’ve predicted.
Maybe I put added pressure on myself, but I wanted six images to tell a story.
“Duh! That’s the whole idea Brett!”
I know! But I wanted them to tell a story without any words. Continue reading Tackling the six-headed beast
Credence is a Wizard and it has brought the Darkness to his heart. His fanatic mother dedicated her life to the witch hunt and she doesn’t know the truth about her son. He doesn’t understand why he always feels like a stranger.
-“Because you’re different, Credence”.
These words were said by the only person who was kind to him and also had the same power.
“You will get your own Magical Wand and become part of our world”.
The Magic Wand Maker’s shop is such a mysterious place full of shadows and long boxes. Credence tries one more wand…
Inexplicable sunrise in the room… what is it? It’s night in the town but the shop becomes lighter and lighter.
Credence knows it’s not the sun. It is HIS Light , the light of Magic!
Even if its dark around, everything changed for Credence. He has found out about his magic and now it will be a Positive power…
“You will go to the Wizarding School”, – his friend said. He has just made this castle from ice for Credence. – “Never hide your talents. Be different”.
The world meets a new Wizard!
Thank you for your attention. My story is based on the movie: “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”. I’d like to thank Shelly and the Toy Photographers Blog for the opportunity to participate in this creative project!
