Akemi: I like Laboratory Retrievers.
Me: Huh? You mean Labrador Retrievers?
Akemi: I like Labu-chans!
Last night, Akemi made pork buns the likes of which you’re unlikely to find in most chinatowns…
Well, things are certainly picking up on the creative front – and this after everything I said about wanting to take things a little easier this year. Just this morning, as a matter of fact, I was considering the prospect of doing a foodie tour of the U.S., hitting about a half dozen cities (San Francisco, Las Vegas, L.A., New Orleans, Boston, Chicago, New York) over the course of a two and a half week period to sample their culinary bests. It’s still doable but I now have a few more things on my mind…
I had that conference call today about our comic book series, Dark Matter. Apparently, it has sparked the interest of a marquee feature director and his team. We had a great initial conversation about the prospective series, covering everything from tone and theme to the all-important character dynamics. They struck me as smart, creative and potentially a lot of fun to work with. A very promising first step. My homework this weekend is to polish the series overview and send it their way.
Also today, my agent phoned to gauge my interest in show running a series based on a well-established horror property. I’ve been a huge fan of the creator since way back when and am certainly intrigued by the prospect of bringing this to series. More cautious optimism. Looks like I’ll be extra busy this weekend, reviewing.
Still fiddling with the script for the horror movie trailer (Sorry, Ivon). I want it to be as tight (and unnerving) as possible and am still undecided on a couple of clips. I hope to have it done by tomorrow after which it’ll be smooooooooooth sailing!
Continuing our sneak peek at the next issue of Dark Matter. Here are the first three pages of issue #3:
