A Summer in the Daisies

Conceptual design and construction project for film and television based on original written work.

The story follows Victoria, a maid, and Taliesin, the son of a wealthy nobleman.
After his father declines Taliesin’s request to marry Victoria, they enlist the help of their close friends to come up with a creative way to stay together.
Luckily, Valentine has a solution, albeit a dangerous one.
