Every story has a beginning, and for me, the origins of Obsidian River Productions can be traced back to a single, timeless tale: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
I was first introduced to this story not through a book, nor a movie, but by the gentle, captivating voice of my grandfather. Picture us: sitting by a tranquil fishing spot, the calm interrupted only by the occasional splash of a fish and my grandfather’s voice, weaving the atmospheric tale of Ichabod Crane, the Headless Horseman, and the town of Sleepy Hollow.
It wasn’t just the supernatural allure that drew me in. It was the story of the underdog, the misty and moody ambience, the rich tapestry of characters, and the small-town myths that had my imagination dancing and spinning into fantastical directions. Every time I heard it, it felt like the first time. The story held an allure, an enchantment that never waned.
“The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” was more than just a story for me; it was the inception of my profound love for storytelling. I realized that stories have the power to bridge generations, to bring alive memories, and to create lasting impressions. I knew then that I wanted to ensure this story, which meant so much to me, reached countless others. It deserved to be heard, to be loved anew by every generation.
That seed of passion, planted during those fishing trips, grew into what Obsidian River Productions is today. While every story we narrate holds a special place, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” is the cornerstone, the tale that started it all.
