“Celtics” JUNE 14, 2021 UPDATES
There’s been a lot of intense work behind the scenes to develop creative promotional materials as we approach our crowdfunding launches.
Alternative, Inspired. An inspired alternative take on Celtic culture and history. Each God and Goddess has their moral teaching books. The moral principles in the books of the Gods are key in the Celtic resistance against the Empire (Roman Empire).
“Celtics” Trailer #1
It was in the darkest hour of the Celtic people. They were enslaved, their culture destroyed, and censored, by the invading, multicultural, globalist, Roman Empire. They met in a secret meeting place in a forest to debate how best to resist the Roman Empire.
Freedom against the Empire has many meanings, Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Expression, Freedom of Religion. This series has ideas and beliefs everyone can feel passionate about for the coming decades.
Freedom of Expression
Celtics saw their ability to have Freedom of Expression being curtailed by the Roman Empire advancing into their lands. They saw their core values being encroached on. And they stood and began to resist.
Freedom of Speech
The Celtics fought for Freedom of Speech. Speech was their main method of communication. While they did have visual arts, including Europe’s “Sistine Ceiling of the Ice Age” at Church Hole Cave, they were not like the Greeks who had a rich history of visual arts in sculpture and painting.
Censorship of Roman Empire
Since Celtics value Freedom of Speech and Expression as their highest values, the core basis of their civilization, they began a campaign of extended Resistance against their Dark Empire overlords who wanted to silence the brilliant light of Celtic civilization and its People.
When A People See They Are Being Enslaved
Gradually the Celtics saw themselves being replaced by the invaders who both brought in foreigners and corrupted those who felt helpless and weak, the Romano Britons. So an underground resistance was formed that became stronger as the years went by, eventually growing strong enough to throw out the invading, multicultural, globalist, Roman Empire. And yet, they stood and fought back. In the legends their stories are told. It was a time when mortals became Gods.

Outnumbered, still they fought back with a heroism unmatched in 20 centuries. Legends all. Gods all. It was a time when mortals put down their lives for their people, and became Gods.
…This is their story. When they realized they could take back their lands….. And they did…they did for their people, for their ancestors…for their children….
Raise that banner. Raise that banner on the Western shore. For we are united as one. And here we come. The multicultural Roman Empire had enslaved, and corrupted the people of the British Isles long enough, their Celtic brothers and sisters came and liberated…

She cooked such amazing food with brain power herbs, that when a person took a taste of it they had the wisdom of the world and could even see the future. Her wisdom is both a gift and a curse, for what you learn you cannot forget.
The Celtic Druid Goddess Aeronwen is the Goddess of War and Death. Aeronwen’s husband lay dying on the battlefield in great pain. He asked her to kill him. So she did. Then the other women whose husbands were dying in great pain, asked her to kill their men, for they couldn’t, and thus her empathy became Godlike.

And yet, they stood and fought back. In the legends their stories are told. Outnumbered, still they fought back with a heroism unmatched in 20 centuries. Legends all. Gods all. It was a time when mortals became Gods. It was a time when mortals put down their lives for their people, and became Gods.

Celtic Druid Goddess Brigid calls the alarm
As we see the Gods and Goddesses awaken and begin to have premonitions, we see the terrible challenge they are up against. Much as the people in our time and in our own lands do. The people, a people, seeing their own identity destroyed by a globalist multicultural Empire. The Roman Empire — An Empire of Censorship, Slavery, Drugs and Darkness.
The Druid God of Sun, Belenus hears her clarion call, and focuses his thermonuclear Sun power attention, his light, upon the issue.

With visions to the Goddesses and Gods now stretching all across the Celtic lands. The fires are lit in the massive broch castles and the towns and castles come to life in the dark night. “A nightmare vision was had!” goes out the word among the villagers.

An deeply immersive feeling is primarily achieved through cinematography and set design, but also changes in dialogue character, as well as sound for each scene that provides both an ambient sound layer and an original composition, scored specifically to construct the exact atmosphere for each episode. In many ways the Celtics faced the same censorship and oppression by an Empire we face today.
The innate story structure is that of the Celtic tartan cross-hatch. Each Season will be called a “Tartan”. Each Season will have 8-9 episodes called “Kilts”, which are woven together into the story knot at the season finale. Based on Celtic culture and storytelling. Artistically, the Brodgar 3,200 BC cross-hatch designs represent the genesis of the Scottish tartan weave kilt design, which represent families intermarrying. It is the beginning of the fabric of the Celtic people and nations.
Depending on budget level there will be different sets built.
Budget A is the lowest budget in 10 acres of Idaho forest. Illustration below. With only a few scenes called “Rendezvous of the Gods”, where the Gods meet at the beginning of the series to debate and talk about how to handle the Roman Empire invasion. Two Gods at a time in each scene locked in intense debate and argument about methodology.
Set Construction will be based on archaeology, of the Celtic Druid cities of Scotland, Ireland, Wales. With construction in Iron Age-type forests in Idaho or British Columbia to start with. Wood timber with fiberglass to simulate the stone massive Druid castles dating to 700 BC Iron Age. The Brodgar excavations of the Celtic Druid temple complex are dated to 3,200 BC in the Orkney Islands, Scotland. There are eight Druid castle cities, towns, one for each God or Goddess.
LEAD CHARACTER MOOD BOARD – FORMAL
These are visual presentations of the eight lead characters.
The Celtic Druid Triskele is the Three-Part design carved into the Newgrange stones, radiocarbon dated to 3,200 BC. Three is a sacred number in Celtic culture. It represents asymmetry, movement and life. “Maudlin (2007: 133) argues that the asymmetry between initial and final conditions is a manifestation of a more fundamental nomic asymmetry,” https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/causation-physics/
HISTORY, MYTHS, GODS
This series stays away from the fratricidal myths of the Lebor Gabála Érenn due to fratricidal propaganda such as “Nemed” vs “Fir Bolg” vs “Partholon” vs “Fomorians” vs “Milesians” vs “Tuath Dé”. Celtics actually came together peacefully, building monumental architecture, Newgrange, Knowth, at 3,200 BC. Irish myths of the series are based on the “Mythological Cycle”, the “Ulster Cycle”, the “Fenian Cycle” and the “Historical Cycle”, Tír na nÓg, Fionn MacCumhaill, Na Fianna, The Aos Sí / Aes Sídhe, Sétanta (CúChulainn), The Tuatha Dé Danann (Gods), the Children of Lir, Táin Bó Cúailnge & the Salmon of Knowledge. My scripts go into more substantive and rational detail about stories against the Roman Empire. Scottish/Pictish myths share from Irish mythology, with some of James MacPherson’s Ossian Tales. Welsh myths are based on the “Four Branches of the Mabinogi”, Pedair Cainc y Mabinogi, earliest Welsh writing.

FUNDRAISING PRODUCTION DETAILS
Detailed Line Itemized Budget Expense Breakdowns. Several budget levels are delineated. This is so the production is scalable and can both get the initial scenes shot on set location, as well as scaled up to a long running network series. Budget A, B, C, D, E, currently. With each increase in budget the actors are paid more, the crew paid more, the number of crew increases, and the size of extras in the background increases, as well as expansion of the set. Ultimately I look towards making our own studio lot dedicated exclusively to the sets and support facilities of this series.
Budget A is for $16,424 and a 7 day shoot on a 10 acre forest near Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, with a Celtic tree fort set (sketches are being cleaned up). Budget will be adjusted as needed. Budget A is divided up into 4 sections: Set Construction, Actors, Camera/Sound, Combined.
Budget B ($50,000 ) is enough to shoot a more scenes on a Celtic Druid tree fort set built in an Idaho forest, for 21 days.
Budget C ($100,000) is enough to expand the set to include a Gorsedd Arberth Iron Age mound, and expand the cast to include Rhiannon riding in on her white horse, as well as extending shooting to 21 days. Actor pay goes up to $1,200 a day. See detail sheets.
Budget D ($500,000) is enough to film 1 episode of Season 1.
Budget E ($2,000,000) is enough to film 5 episodes of Season 1.
