Development Pitch

Discover the world of Evorath, a magical land with a diverse population of mythical creatures. As you pay a visit to Erathal forest, everything appears nice and peaceful on the surface. However, a great new evil threatens this peaceful life. Meet Artimus, the head investigator for the elvish kingdom of Erathal who begins to notice the flaws in his apparently perfect society. As he develops feelings for Savannah, a beautiful druid hiding an important secret, he struggles to separate his personal feelings from his responsibilities to the kingdom. In a nearby centaur village, the young warrior Irontail struggles to distinguish himself in a tribe where independent thought is discouraged. When their paths cross, they both discover that their own people's shortcomings may be the least of their concerns. Putting aside their own personal troubles, they must fight against the clock to ensure the very survival of their peoples. As they work towards this common goal, they find that they each have their own, unique gifts to offer. But, will they be strong enough to survive? The first tale of many taking place in the world of Evorath, this story would translate beautifully into video as a multi-part fantasy epic featuring complex interpersonal relationships, magic, mystery, and adventure. If you're after an original fantasy adventure filled with diverse creatures from elves, demons, centaur, satyr, cat-people, and more, look no further.
