Apologies for the stretch of incommunicado, folks – I blame it on a frenzied mix of travel, research, and project launches – but I wanted to keep you posted on what’s baking in the transmedia oven.

You might’ve noticed a feature I have in development in the PROJECTS section called Risen.  Well, it’s still very much alive;  there’s a third draft of the screenplay nearing completion, a graphic novel ‘package’ with artist attached, and cross-platform strategizing fully in progress.   And now, you can peer behind the proverbial curtain and see some of the lever and pulley action that goes into prepping an original IP for the transmedia stage.

IP LOGLINE

At a remote mountain sanctuary, a disabled orphan receives a revolutionary implant to restore his health.  But when the young man finds himself able to manipulate the digital world with his mind?  Then it’s a race for answers – and for civilization itself – against rogue military, an obsessed scientist, and the terrifying Consciousness awakening within him.

WORK

TIMELINE:  2011 – CURRENT

PLATFORM:  Feature Film

GENRE:  Contemporary Sci-Fi

CLIENT:  In-House IP w/ HULO FILMS

LOGLINE:  Sheltered in a remote orphanage, a disabled teen (JACOB PRICE – 16) has terrifying visions of a technological apocalypse.  Little does he realize that the real battle will be waged within his very cells…and that the future of the human race will be HIS to decide.

With an original short story treatment, multi-stage development financing from Telefilm Canada and Saskfilm was secured for this teen sci-fi high concept.   Reminiscent of ‘thinking man’ cult hits including The Lawnmower Man, The Matrix, and Chronicle,  two (2) screenplay drafts have been successfully completed and reviewed by major distributors.

Project partners HULO FILMS are entering negotiations for international co-production beginning in Spring 2012.  You can view the digital pitch package here, which includes some sweet concept art by David Cameron Sloan.

Another Project in the Works..?

"The Sleeper has not just Awakened...it has RISEN."

Sixteen years ago, the world was nearly brought to its knees by an ambitious experiment gone awry:  the first great advance in Bio-Intelligence.  The Program was born within manmade cells  – living code, designed to learn and evolve and serve our growing needs – and it was quickly becoming Conscious.  Without warning, the program spread beyond the top-secret confines of the laboratory.  Every screen on Earth flashed in unison with Its haunting image.  Every wire screamed with Its terrible frequency…

And then?  Nothing.

The Ghost was either imprisoned in – or had fled – the Machine.

It’s now 2012.  Locked away in a remote orphanage, a disabled teen named JACOB has no idea that his life – and the World itself – is about to change forever.  The boy is possessed by dark visions of a coming war between humanity and a frightening new force on Earth.  Little does he realize that the battle will be waged within him, and that the future of life itself is his to decide!
