ME AND MY GOAL
My name is Robbie Ierubino, and I am the writer, director, and producer of this project. I am mostly a contemporary graphic artist and graphic design student at Staffordshire University in England. But, in secret, I am a big fan of a TV show initially created for female children called, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I know it may sound odd, but there are a lot of other people who are watching the series as well. Children, teenagers, and adults of different genders became big fans of the show and called themselves, “bronies.” Since the show became an unexpected hit, fans have created pony art, PMVs (pony music videos), pony animation, and conventions worldwide. I have seen lots of stuff that many fans of the show created, and I felt that I wanted to create something that the fans will like.

For years, I have been thinking about writing a story for My Little Pony. The story was in my thoughts for a long time, but I hadn’t written anything down. Finally, I decided to do it. Currently, I am writing a journal about making this series; I hate doing this because I am like “not in the mood” to make journals about my processes. I am doing a process journal because I am told by my tutors and by what I read about working in the creative industry that documenting your process is necessary. I think one of the reasons why I just store all the information in my brain and don’t want to write the process down is that I have Pervasive Developmental Disorder – Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS), a type of an autism spectrum disorder. I think of it as a ‘gift’ because I faced many challenges that "typical" kids don't. As a child, it took me a long time to speak, and communication is still sometimes difficult for me. Because I am autistic, I may struggle to talk with people, expressing my feelings or even finding the right words to say. But as an artist, I feel free through my work. I think autism has given me a unique perspective and I hope it comes through in my art. As my senses are always on high-alert, my understanding of the world around me may be a bit different from yours. For example, when I hear music, I see pictures in my head. Or, when I think of a movie, I see it and listen to it playing in my mind, including this story.

EDIT: On August 2018, my grandmother left a eulogy note during her funeral, and she said these words to me as a promise to keep, "Make a difference! You have it in you it to do it. Just let it go!" And with these words in mind, I wanted to dedicate my radio play to my grandmother because of the difference that I planned my story is to be inclusive and diverse. And I want to show the kindness and good hearts of the brony fandom all over the world and help to change the hearts of the ill-informed. My story may be another lesson of friendship, but also, it has something to do with the meaning of love, peace, and happiness. And to help the listeners understand its moral, I wanted to edit the story into a "Christopher Nolan movie." 

Here is how I have been thinking about creating a My Little Pony story:
At first, I thought of the story’s atmosphere as dystopian and post-apocalyptic. But now, I think about it as “re-building” urbanization and utopia because the story itself has scenes that are violent, epic, funny, and dramatic. When I learned about the history of My Little Pony as a TV series, I thought about having the original three human characters named, Morgan, Danny, and Molly, in my story. But I thought of giving them different characterizations and style for the story so that they would represent how bronies became bronies. I thought about making the story as the GRAND FINALE of the 4th generation of My Little Pony. But when I heard about the uproar of some fans feeling abandoned about the 9th season as the official's final, I wanted to make "Friendship is Magic" continue with a new title, My Little Pony: Love is Everything, as another story for another time. It is because it will be a “Next Generation” idea that I have in mind, and a future generation of this story’s timeline.

So, I would like to build a cast and crew for my upcoming audio drama in development called...

Therefore, I decided to create my own account in Patreon! I want my story to be supported and collaboratively made by those who want to release the audio drama on YouTube. So, I made different reward selections for those who want to help or join my production club:
  • FAN ($1)
    • Access to Patron-only posts
  • HELPER ($5)
    • Access to Patron-only posts
    • Access to production files
  • SUPPORTER ($10)
    • Access to Patron-only posts
    • Access to production files
    • Access to Discord
  • FRIEND ($25)
    • Access to Patron-only posts
    • Access to production files
    • Access to Discord
    • Be in a cameo of the audio drama (if you want to)
  • MEMBER ($50)
    • Access to Patron-only posts
    • Access to production files
    • Access to Discord
    • Be in a cameo of the audio drama (if you want to)
    • Become part of a team to help and support the makings of the audio drama

I decided to make it a slow process so that could work more on my university coursework and wait patiently for anyone who wants to join in by making the audio drama with me. That is my reasoning for setting up the two goals for my Patreon account to achieve. When my earnings per month reach…
  • $500
    • I will be donating £20 per month to an autism charity.
  • $1000
    • I will create a Kickstarter page for making the radio play into a movie!

Since I have started working on the script and process, I will be posting some personal news about the makings here in Patreon. And with YOUR help and support, we can create an audio drama that everyone can learn from and enjoy!
