I'm a 67 year old, a long career in business has taught me to be adaptable, and that every day brings new challenges. Therefore in my otium, I will create something that not had been close to my heart. Design and develop an App to smartphone with H C Andersen's fairy tale, for use by the Chinese people, in a way that not have been done before.
My interest in H C Andersen and China has for many years been my interest, due my many travels to China. My interest in his stories is expected, he has been part of my literary world from my childhood.
I will develop an App for the modern smartphone and IPad that will make H C Andersen and especially Denmark even more famous in the world. The App I want to develop will first be developed into the Chinese market.
My idea for the App is to communicate H C Andersen's fairy tale in a new and different way to the Chinese population, in Chinese he is called An Tu Sheng.
The App will be divided into two sections;
In Chinese schools, children start to teach in Mandarin (PIN YIN) from first class. The fairy tale are written on both Han zi and Mandarin in the same line, this is given the students an early knowledge of the Chinese character, Han Zi, which they first really acquainted themselves from the fifth grade.
The Story of the Ugly duckling.
chǒu xiǎo yā de xiě zuò bèi jǐng (Mandarin , PinYin).
丑 小 鸭 的 写 作 背 景 (Han zi).
By learning these two ways simultaneously, children can start reading the stories by themselves, and parents or grandparents can use it as reading for the kids. The English part is important because it is a language that all Chinese must learn in school from first grade. The app will help the kids get insight into English from first grade. It will also be possible that the fairy tale, can be heard as an audiobook where the user can choose which language thy want to listen to.
The App's to unit into language makes the entrance to H C Andersen's story, the way to communicate his stories has not been tried before. Hereby, the largest part of China's population will have the opportunity to get a better knowledge of H C Andersen's fairy tale, from one place.
It will be an App that can be used in the Chinese education system.
The whole idea is to give more information about H C Andersen's fairy tale to the Chinese population.
The two sharing of the App makes it possible to transfer the idea to other languages. Several of the Asian countries are also great connoisseurs of H C Andersen's fairy tale, a new market. Therefore, most countries benefit from the idea of two divisions depending on which two languages are chosen.
Now you know a little about my project, what I want it is a suggestion how cans you from the information you received, giving me a picture to my front page that will capture Investors and other Fundraiser.
The project is not a small one, which will start with approx. 15 fairy tales, to be illustrated initially to the smartphone as an App. So it can be understood by the Chinese and at the same time don’t forget where the stories, derived from the little green country of Denmark. The Chinese must be able to identify itself with the app, but at the same time keep track of where the stories come from.
Therefore, with the illustrations, think ahead, come up with the ultimate solution I've been waiting for one can help me with it, too many suggestions are too traditional. I think you must be out there. If you are chosen, it is clear that in future, you will be attached to the project as the main designer / illustrator for the project. You will not get the biggest payment for your first proposal, but the future will provide a good income. Are you also App Designer does not matter, so we can keep the whole process together somewhere.
