The Taffetas

The Taffetas - Pitch Project 2011/2012
The Taffetas is an animated series hopeful by Yesenia Carrero and Tracy MacLauchlan about a bubbly Atlantean who tries to start a new life in a contemporary city filled with characters from myth and lore.

We created and pitched our first concept in 2011 with warm reviews. This year, we revised the concept completely, and are now working on a new version of the pitch, which we plan to share soon.

This blog you are reading is our development blog, where we post every other Wednesday about our insights and updates.

The Story
Gemini, a bubbly Atlantean, lives a sheltered and lonely existence at sea until a shipwreck leaves her landlocked in a city filled with characters from myth and lore. Determined to start a new life, she takes up a half-hearted offer to move into the apartment of her uptight, frustrating crush Veil Taffeta, a passenger from her ship’s last ride. However, her determination may not be enough to get her new life in motion. Dangers lurk around every corner, and in a world where fantasy is reality, a girl can fall into a lot a trouble ...
  • Genre: Fantasy
  • Media Format: Web Television
  • Target Audience: Girls 15-20
  • Episode Length: 22 minutes

Our Goals
Our long-term goal is to actually make The Taffetas. Our short-term goals are to finish the new version of our pitch, and to seek out resources to make the show a reality.

Stay tuned ...
We always appreciate support and comments, so don't feel shy to share your thoughts through our blog, facebook, or e-mail (, especially if you have questions.

Another Taffetas Sketch + Thank You

After an engaging conversation about amputation practices of early war nurses, Gemini coyly asks Veil if he would still like her if she didn't have her arms. He retorts that while he specifically dated her for her arms, he would make do being her arms for her. They decide they need to practice this, just in case.

"Jazz hands are particularly important, Darling."


We would like to thank everyone for staying with us and we are excited for our new plans which are coming along slowly but surely! Taffetas continues to grow at a steady pace and we appreciate every comment, fan, worker, and supporter we get along the way.

"Blue" Preview

Here's a preview of the Blue storyboards by the fantastic Nana Boachie!

In this scene, Gemini takes out her frustrations with Veil by smacking him with a pillow. It looks like Veil's not quite enjoying the experience either! Are our main couple in store for a nasty quarrel?

My Little Gem

Here's a fun fun little call back to one of our favorite shows here at Taffetas. These are yet again brought to us by the ever-talented Jamie Thompson who is about 20% cooler now than she was before! Straight from the horse's mouth, she mentions her inspiration for this fun set:

" Considering the vector style animation of the Taffetas, I couldn't help but to make a clothing series inspired by another awesome animation series. This is my tribute. <3"
