Do You Have a Shada Talent?

You may be aware of this or you may not, but longtime Doctor Who fan Ian Levine is running a project to complete the unfinished 1979 adventure Shada, which originally starred Tom Baker and Lalla Ward, but was sadly shelved due to industrial action.

The project is of course animated, and Ian is looking for animators to complete the story (considerable work has already been completed).

Speaking about the project, Ian has said:

“Believe it or not, we still need more animators who can work in 2d and flash,” he posted. “Opportunity of a lifetime to find some young talented people who can actually get their work seen and used if they are genuinely talented enough. They have to work to our characters and our backgrounds, like this…

“It’s an opportunity that could take them ten years if they tried on their own, but I need to find some extra people quickly. Just one more new animator and we can finish it in time.”

It also seems likely that Levine is running other projects alongside Shada, possibly with a similar aim of reconstruction on some classic, lost Doctor Who serials.

If you have any talent in this area then you should contact Ian Levine via his Facebook page.
