I just want to thank you all so much for the overwhelming support for this story reel! I created this during a time when I was struggling to remain an artist. And it was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do.
Randomly enough, my story surrounding the creation of these, got me selected as a finalist for the NFL’s “Together We Make Football Story Contest.” If you feel so inclined, check out the rest of my story on my tumblr blog. heidijogilbert.tumblr.com/post/68476879161/here-is-the-story-surrounding-the-making-of-these

Dear Stephen Schwartz,
I know you can relate to the plight of loving a story, loving a medium, and trying to convince someone in power to see your vision! You did it with Marc Platt when you convinced him to make it a stage musical. I’m just approaching you with the same sincerity. Is it possible to talk you out of doing a live action movie adaptation? Would you consider doing a traditionally animated adaptation? In my heart I think the musical needs the medium, and I think the medium needs your musical. I just love them both so much and hopefully that shows through in the story reel.
