We are happy you have decided to come on the adventure…  

Dear friends,

I am excited to announce that principal photography on our graphic novel will commence in January. It should last 4 or 5 months as it represents an enormous amount of work. In some ways it is equivalent to the shooting of a film… in miniature!

In October I went to Paris to spend time with my parents. Whist there I trawled France, Germany, England and Wales for the final batch of figurines and sets necessary to tell the first story. I came back home to Australia with a suitcase full of  miniatures and have been painting and building like mad since then in order to be ready for principal photography in January.

The title of our graphic novel is All Blood Runs Red
All Blood Runs Red will cover the full scope of the First World War on the Western Front, chronologically from 1914 to 1918. It will be told in 4 parts, each time introducing soldiers from different countries.




From the romantic and colourful enthusiasm of the beginning of the war, to its descent into the muddy grey despair of the trenches and the nightmarish black and white of Verdun’s hell, these stories will present an historically accurate depiction of the main events and evolution of the war in France between August 1914 and August 1918.

Their narrative form, at once deeply evocative and poetically fake, will create a new iconography of the First World War by pushing and blurring the boundaries between graphic novel, photo novella and paper movie.

So from January onward, I will make sure to keep you informed about the progress of the work on Part One. Until then we will allow Christmas to take precedent, spending time with family and enjoying a short summer break on the beach.

I would like to wish you all a great festive season and all the best for the year to come.

Pierre-Jacques Ober
and the team, who I’ll introduce next time!
