New project, new possibilities…

Posted in Uncategorized on September 26, 2010 by runningfornow

While waiting for news from a few producers regarding The Sleeping Deep, I hunkered down and tidied up a 30-page supernatural/thriller I’ve been tinkering with called A Dawning Darkness. The first part “A Sea Witch for All Seasons” sets the stage for what (I’m planning) will become a much larger story set in Portland, Maine (or a waterfront district of the sort) and revolves around a pair of detectives, a gang of magical warriors, and the wrathful Shansatka, Shadow Queen of Vak’thil. Oh my!

Logline: When the long buried coffin of an ancient sea witch is hoisted to the water’s surface, a flurry of bizarre deaths spark an investigation that becomes bloodier and deadlier at every turn.

Part sci-fi, part supernatural with a mix of spooky moodiness (moody spookiness?) and “budget conscious” design, the plan is to use this script as a new writing sample for more opportunities with companies looking for similar material.  Part one has been registered with the WGA and is available for consideration. Email me if you’d like to give it a read.

Now, back to your original programming!

I attended the first Los Angeles H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival over the weekend with my buddy Michael Mulcahy, one of the team members on The Sleeping Deep promotional materials. It was a lot of fun and was great to see  some familiar faces as well as meet a few new folks. I didn’t go crazy with picture taking, but here are 2 pics from inside the lobby.

I’ll be there next year!
