Well, damn. Even though we’re a couple of weeks away from the beginning of summer, you wouldn’t know it by the beautiful weather. Sunny and HOT! At lunch, the circus is transformed into party central with the actors and crew members lounging outside the trailers, chatting, laughing, and listening to the booming tunes compliments of Mr. Robert Carlyle. It’s like Woodstock North, a laidback and fun atmosphere. I bet if Jason Momoa were around, he’d have his guitar out and be strumming right along. At least actress Elyse Levesque got to cool off in the dunk tank.
After lunch, Paul and I had the big conference call in which we pitched out our vision for the comic book series. They’ve already read the pilot (which I pitched out as a double-issue because I think that final WTF?! revelation is key), so I gave them a rundown of how the opening story wraps up and sets the stage for the rest of the series. We discussed thematic elements, the moral conflict at the heart of the story, the search for answers, and the surprises in store, then moved onto a brief overview of the seven main characters, their stories, relationships, and respective journeys. It seemed to go very well but I suppose we’ll find out soon enough.
Exec. Producer Brad Wright came into my office this afternoon and started scanning the shelves in search of a good hiatus read. I recommended Charlie Stross’ Glasshouse, one of my fave reads of 2009.
Speaking of reading – Okay, readers, let’s finish up Elric: The Stealer of Souls. Discussion begins Monday and, later in the week, we’ll be joined by legendary author Michael Moorcock for a little Q&A.
