A knight of Lenity




What if someone could take pain away?


That was my initial starting point for this project…


Think about it:
Our relationships, our politics, medicine, policing, military strategy, racism or sexism, the hiring & firing of staff members all rely on events that have occurred previously.
More often than not a negative event will leave us with an emotional scar, an old wound that will affect how we relate to the world around us from that day forward.

It’s about learning to cope for the future certainly but sometimes if we could only let go of the less positive feelings - we might undertake life without a pre-established prejudice.

A Knight of Lenity can erase that negative.

This is done at a personal cost to them but each Knight has decided for their own individual reasons that they use their will to free those who suffer of their past traumas.






Project plans


Essentially I just wish to offer inspiration.

Whether that be via a picture & slogan, a written story, a comic or cartoon I’d love to be able to sow a seed in the heart of others.

As a child I saw Luke Skywalker defy the mighty Emperor face to face in order to prove that Darth Vader still had a soul. I Witnessed a 16 year old Buffy save the world from “the big bad” whilst her everyday teenage life took a back seat.
I saw Dr Sam Beckett “put right what once went wrong” in other people's lives despite knowing full well that he would never return home himself.

These ideals struck a chord with myself & others as children, inspiring us to become charity workers, paramedics or school teachers in order to also generate a positive from a negative.

I don’t believe that such inspiration exists within media today.

Whilst I still see wonderful people acting selflessly in the world - I don’t see them held up as shining examples even though they rightfully should.

Perhaps a “Knight of Lenity” can enter the public sphere as a modern example of altruism being championed in some small proportion, that would naturally have a large effect on individual lives being changed for the better.

We can but try.

If you like the pictures, story or concept then please donate.






The combination of artwork, animated video & stories are here to open up discussions & create a dialogue through interesting moral tales that speak to our modern lives through a fantasy setting.
Definition of Lenity via Merriam-Webster: the quality or state of being lenient - clemency.




The goal


# For the adults, Knights of Lenity will attempt a tongue in cheek approach. Reminding us that our squabbles are often fruitless & hypocritical when all is said & done.

# For teenagers a graphic novel/ comic style approach whereby situations are rarely as simple as they first appear. I'd like to introduce the idea of always asking questions & being curious.
An important lesson I find is that being wrong isn't the end of an experience - often convictions become stronger when built upon solid foundations.

# For youngsters a mixture of simpler animation & uplifting short stories of bravery & kindness, never talking down to children who are naturally in a constant state of learning & growth.

                                    

       This multimedia project will speak upon various subjects, with a hint of British humour for good measure.
Witness our brave knights encountering situations on his journey through the world - hopefully leaving things a little better than they were before ..

Support

If you see merit in my ideas & artwork or think that I might need some better equipment to really get the ball rolling then please act accordingly by lending your support where you can.

I grew up with some truly inspirational heroes & heroines.

Often doing the right thing wasn't always easy but there was always HOPE ..

Lets give everyone a little Lenity in life.

Knights Of Lenity would ideally be a multi faceted project whereby a comedic but moral message is portrayed within a story piece via animation & graphic novel formats.

I'd love to bring back a little inspiration into animation in much the same way that He-man or Thundercats gave me something to ponder at the end of each episode back in the 1980's...

Ideally I wish to produce longer & more frequent videos.

At the moment I'm using basic techniques & equipment to show the overall tone of the Knights of Lenity works. 

I'd like videos covering a range of topics - one video takes me about 2 weeks to create at the moment.

Any donations will allow me to invest in better equipment & keep my wife from thinking that this is all for nothing ;-)
