Film idea - The Joker

Midgets and dwarfs were often considered to have magical powers and as such were often given the job of being a court jester and often the job of telling the king things that nobody else would dare say or in other words be a sort-of mirror to show the king how others saw the king. The film idea is the story of a midget or dwarf who was born into a poor family and how he felt to be a burden and useless. Discrimination and other such nasty things can also happen. Then, using his wits, he perpetuates this idea of his magical abilities and gets into the royal court. In this scenario, he has to deal with those trying to prove him to be a fraud and other dwarfs and midgets trying to muscle in on his turf. He develops a close relationship with the king as a confidant but then also has to be blunt when the king is going in the wrong direction.

The proof is in the putting stuff out

I don't really care too much what other people think of my abilities (they always underestimate my abilities unless they are trying to abuse my good nature) but I have to prove to myself that I really can do the things I think I can do. Finally, after months of putting it off, I made my animation table again and this time it is where it can stay for a few years. I will also have my piano-like keyboard there too and an animation filming (with a digital camera) set up so I will be set up to make films again (for the first time in almost 2 decades... long time coming). I must start doing a daily output of music and art and posting it.
