So I told Anna I would do this. Her laughter soon died when she realized I was doing it for real real and not for play play.
If I could reach Michael Dante DiMartino & Bryan Konietzko, this is what I would tell them.
Dear Michael & Bryan,
This is the craziest thing I’ve ever done. I’m sure you probably get weird stalkers, fan mail and fanart all the time and I assure you this isn’t one of them. Unless you count the fact that I’m shooting blindfolded to reach you somehow, weird and deranged, then maybe?
I also want to apologize for the second hand embarrassment you may feel for me (If this, in fact, reaches you through the vast space of the internet). I assure you this sounded better in my head and I will most likely regret it as soon as I hit the ‘post’ button. I’m also sure my friends won’t let me live this down for a while.
That said, here goes something, sweet and simple:
I did not place nearly close to your top 50 fans at Korra Nation. I cannot afford to draw fanwork of your show and for a while I would not be able to attend to any conventions or panels you may potentially be at.
I am a beginning professional doing her best to make her mark and I know that takes sacrifice and diligence. I have the passion to learn and succeed.
I would love it if you gave me the opportunity to work for The Legend of Korra creative team. Whether it may be storyboard artist, background painter, coffee & doughnut runner or retake revisionist- I read you guys may need a little help with that. I just ask for a chance.
You cannot pay me for the first 3 months? Unpaid internship? That’s completely all right with me. I will make ends meet somehow and will work my hardest day in and day out to meet your expectations.
I also make a mean burrito.
I wish I could blame my spontaneous actions on being tired and stressed because of my upcoming portfolio revisions.
MAYBE I WILL.
