It has been about six months, and I have not really had a whole lot of contact with certain people from certain production companies, so I’m certainly uncertain whether I’m allowed to mention things or not, but hopefully the worst that can happen is they find my blog and tell me to remove this post, so…
News for your eyeballs:
In December of 2013, I was contacted by a production company who was very interested in making a motion picture adaptation of Lisa, and I agreed to climb on board with this. For the last six months, I’ve been working with (or rather waiting on, for the most part) a screen writer on an outline, which I finally got to read about a month ago. I’m fairly sure that I’m not at liberty to breathe a single word about that, but I will say, he did a fairly good job, though he did change the characters up quite a bit, which… I can understand, I guess, because that’s how Hollywood works.
So needless to say, it won’t really be an exact copy of the thing I wrote, but it should at least include the notebook, which will make it obvious enough that it’s based off my work. Yay.
In other news, I am currently working on another visual story that is quite a bit different from Lisa and Tyler.
(Also, in retrospect, I shouldn’t have used the name Tyler, because people keep associating it with Fight Club, which had nothing at all to even do with my decision to use that name.)
The new story is from the perspective of a much older person- someone about my age who knowingly has issues, but just doesn’t quite understand the gravity of said issues. Supposing that they are actually issues, and not something more. As much fun as I had making Lisa and Tyler, I am having worlds more fun with the new project, so I hope that you will like it as much, even though it lacks the endearing childhood innocence of the other two. They were gems, but after awhile, that theme gets a bit old and overused, so I’ve gotta come up with new ways to make visually disturbing artwork.
Trust me. It’ll be good.
Anyway, that’s all for now, so let that one sit on your lobes for awhile, and in the meantime, summer is the best time of year for a nice, refreshing glass of brain juice!
