Watch & Listen along to the Video-Storybooks from Paul Taggart’s Elphen Chronicles
“Welcome to our studio in the Highlands of Scotland, where we bring to life the enchanting, fantastical world that is ‘Paul Taggart’s Elphen Chronicles’.
Watch and Listen along to our uniquely created Video-Storybook editions of the Elphen Chronicles, in which Paul reveals the enchanting world of Elphen, through his illustrated storytelling of Elphen folklore and ... personally narrates the stories. Watch & Listen along to the full nine-chapter book, 'Webstrand,the Tooth Gatherer' and the short story 'Starway Sapphires'.
‘Starway Sapphires’ - the first stand-alone story to be released of the ‘Paintbox Tales’ from ‘Paul Taggart’s Elphen Chronicles’, features decorative illuminated letters and miniature Masterworks oil paintings, as well as animation and additional visual features, all that portray this magical Elphen folktale – accompanied by original music composed uniquely by Liza Mulholland, for ‘Paul Taggart’s Elphen Chronicles’ soundscape and the upcoming Concept Music Album.
Much of Zand's cherished childhood was spent at his grandmothers; where he could get lost in the overgrown garden and a magical world-of-his-own. We join Zand on one of his blissfully innocent, insect-gathering forays - a most auspicious event, for his life was soon to be changed forever.
Although a solitary young boy, Zand wouldn’t stay that way for long, for he was about to experience the beginnings of a lifelong friendship. Zand was to witness the amazing appearance of the Starway Sapphires and get to meet the Elphen Swarm Leader, Weftwing – herself an insect-whisperer.
Starway Sapphires - recounts where Zand's passion for painting began, with the discovery of his Grandfather’s legacy – a paintbox heaped full of possibilities. A treasure trove of a lifelong passion, passed down through time and, once again, to be reborn.
As with the Video-Storybook 'Webstrand, the Tooth Gatherer', Eileen’s concept, design and creation of the Video-Storybook version of ‘Starway Sapphires’ is inspired by Sunita’s modelling of these pages that are, in themselves, a work of art, which she brings to life as Paul narrates the story itself.
Watch & Listen along to all nine chapters in the box-set Video-Storybook, 'Webstrand, the Tooth Gatherer' and join Fizz on her journey into the Shimmistrian world of Elphen - an adventure that leads her (and you), to discover the precious secret of a momentous occasion in every human-child’s life – that of losing a tooth.
Get to know Webstrand and her Tooth Gathering Swarm. Experience the mysterious happenings on their journey through the Starway. Learn how losing her tooth affects Fizz’s life forever, when she arrives at the Jade Lake.
Lift the lid on The Elphen Treasure Chest, a magical trove filling with myriad gems of all things Elphen. There are books and short stories, a music album and soundscape, original artworks and prints, tutorials and crafty templates, plus more in the making.
Thank you for watching and as ever, we send you best wishes from,”
Eileen, Sunita, Liza and myself.
