ON MY BRAIN - August 29, 2005
Long time no hear from me, sorry about that, been burning it on both
ends since San Diego (and then some) as well as being on the road constantly
has really messed up my already insane schedule. Hopefully it will all
be worth it in the end.
What has been eating up allot of my time is several possible Heavy Metal
Entertainment deals I hope I'll get to share some good news with you
all soon. We're getting very close on an online game/animated movie
deal for the Heavy Metal (Eastman/Bisley/Pearson) "Lost Angeles"
project. If it is going to go, I should know in the next few weeks.
I'm also doing another, and hopefully a final pass, on the "Fistful
of Blood" script, which could go as both a live action and animated
Heavy Metal film. We're close on funding options there as well, but
as we say here in Hollywood Land, "It will be funded and going
once the check clears."
I'll keep you posted on both of those projects, as well as three other
entertainment deals heating up as well.
Another cool creative project I've been spending allot of time on these
days came out of left field. Back in the late 80's I created a kids
concept called "Underwhere." I went on to create a finished
story and graphic novel with my mate Paul Jenkins, and buddy Mark Martin.
It was published in the early 90's, optioned by Sony Wonder for two
years, then Columbia Tri Star for another two years but neither could
get it off the ground. Since then it has been shown around here and
there, but pretty much stayed dormant until a few months ago when someone
I had shown it to many years ago called and had me pitch it to a funding
company and a local CG Animation company--and they liked it--allot.
Since then I've been working every spare moment on updating the story
and designs with Paul Jenkins, Robert Mandell, and Joe Pearson. What
a hoot, and who knows where it will go once we all bring it into the
studio, but this time we'll have money behind it--which helps allot
in this town. Will keep you posted on this one as well.
Lastly on the entertainment front, an update, the Imagi Studios new
animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles I mentioned the last time I did
a post, has been picked up by Warner Bros. to distribute. Cool beans,
and as far as I know everyone is committed to meet the March 2007 release
date. As soon as they release the teaser I'll give you all a heads up
so you can check it out.
For photos this time around I'm just going to chuck-up a bunch of great
snaps from the 2005 San Diego Comic Con. I picked images from the quiet
of the set up, to the madness of the show, to the artists/friends/and
fans that made this year such a great time. I'll be posting more over
the next few updates along with other cool tid bits.
Okay, I'm outta here for now, promise to get back sooner than I have
the last few months.
All the best, Kevin
