Free Drove is a science fiction story animated by me, Sapling. The story is written in novel form and will be accompanied by videos that I animate and narrate.
It has been thirty-five years since the war ended. Rebuilding in the remote colony of August has long since been completed but two lasting effects remain: The ongoing integration of the former enemy’s soldier species known as the Free Drove, and continuing incursions of automated mines left by the enemy during the war. Eshlee Coal and Damselfly are members of the coast guard unit tasked with repelling the mine attacks and finding their source – a rumored hidden facility known as The Factory. But loose ends from the war and forces from within the colony and beyond are about to change nature of their mission and increase its stakes dramatically.
This blog is a way for me to share the progress of this creative project with anyone who is interested. I update the blog at least once a week with concept sketches, information about the world of Free Drove, and general musings. You can follow Free Drove on Twitter for even more frequent updates ;).
Thank you for visiting!
I go by Sapling. I have been drawing for almost as long as I’ve been able to. Writing is much newer to me, though. I am a big sci-fi fan and have always found the genre is at its best when it presents the viewer with a moral conundrum, this is one of the underpinnings of Free Drove. My other interests are PC Gaming, Music, Nature, and pretty much all the sciences.
