FANSITES I hope to produce meaningful Twin Peaks collectables. This can only be effective if I can reach the show’s absolute fanatics through channels they are likely to read and trust. The Twin Peaks fansites would be a huge assett in promoting my products. Here are the main sites I have identified (although very few are still being maintained):

http://www. thegreatnorthern.org/ http://flimgeeks.com/ tpcomplete/ Blogs: welcometotwinpeaks.com/ Regularly updated even today, the site posts news about the show and its cast. They regularly feature fan art and merchandise so would be a huge promotional asset. http://twinpeaksarchive. blogspot.co.uk/ Still regularly updated http://dugpa.com/ News site for Twin Peaks

POEMS

One woman can make you fly like an eagle another can give you the strenghth of a lion

A sweet and a creeping sound Like the rushing of wings was heard around;

but only one in the cycle of life can fill your heart with wonder

And suddenly the lamps grew pale-

and the wisdom that you have known a singular joy.

Through the darkness of future past The magican longs to see One chance out between two worlds: Fire walk with me

The lamps, before the Archangels seven

That burn continually in Heaven.

Catch you with my deathbag

TP INSPIRED DESIGN Many designers have been inspired by the imagery of Twin Peaks, and it has a rich variety of fan-art,ranging severely in quality. Popular themes amonst fan artists are the striped ‘red room’ pattern, owls, quotes, illustrated character. I would like to avoid these commonly utilised themes and be a lot more subtle with my project.


MUSIC The music for Twin Peaks was written by Angelo Badalementi. David Lynch wrote lyrics for 5 of the songs used in the Twin Peaks series. Badalamenti’s compositions have been released on three soundtrack albums: Soundtrack from Twin Peaks (1990), Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me (1992) and Twin Peaks Music: Season Two Music and More (2007). The soundtrack recieved high critical acclaim and is fundamental to creating the atmosphere of Twin Peaks. David Lynch began distributing The Twin Peaks Archive, a collection of previously unreleased and unused songs on his official web site for digital download. In total, 215 songs were made available for download.

EXPENSIVE PRINT For me, this project is about generating something of value. Using high quality materials and print techniques, I aim to create something that fans of the series will treasure. This will be reflected both in the content and appearence of the collectables I produce. By creating limited run prints, I can appeal to collectors and increase the value of the work.
