The Magnum Opus

Part 2 of The Maker story continues in The Magnum Opus—an epic fantasy adventure. Discover who made the first Maker, what lies beyond the workshop, and the reason for their existence!

THE MAGNUM OPUS is a very imaginative work of fiction with a world populated by a mix of odd creatures and absurd monsters that call to mind The Wizard of Oz. Ario and his fellow Makers are undeniably adorable creatures, and in their own way, perfect heroes for a fantasy epic the same way that Hobbits are perfect for Lord of the Rings. The climactic ending is suitably riveting, suspenseful and inspiring.

Viral video finds new life as a YA Novel.

Filmmakers Christopher and Christine Kezelos turn the viral success of their multi-award winning short film The Maker, into a Young Adult fantasy novel titled The Magnum Opus.

After a successful international film festival campaign, The Maker won 22 awards, including a nomination for an Australian Academy Award. The film has since been viewed over 6 million times online.

The creative duo originally pitched a feature film version of their short to countless Hollywood studios and production companies. After much interest but no sale, Christopher and Christine decided to try another approach.

“We wanted to share our story with the fans of ‘The Maker’ and not have to wait for a film to be greenlit in order to do that”, says Christine Kezelos. “Yes it’s a different medium, but we believed that our fans would come along on the journey and enjoy the magical world we’ve imagined”.

Christopher Kezelos sees the novel as an extension of the film. “We continue the tone and whimsical feel of the short while expanding upon the world. The Magnum Opus is an epic tale of self-discovery, the awakening of a people, and how united we can transform our world ”.

You can buy a copy of the Magnum Opus on Amazon or view their films on their website at zealouscreative.com.
