Whew! I spent much of the day working on the series overview for my SF space opera comic book (hopefully soon-to-be-television series) Dark Matter. I covered the major story arcs, from the individual backstories to the end of their respective journeys. I also included various images from the comic book to compliment the fifteen page document. Only problem now is that the file is a hefty 37.5 mb and not exactly easy to email. Looks like FedEx might be the way to go.
I sent it Paul’s way so he could do a quick pass on it before I send it out and he informed me that he is two thirds of the way through the pilot script he pitched me a couple of months ago. Damn. In order to get in all the projects we want to pitch, next time we’re in L.A. we may have to stay the whole week. That’s a lot of Ben & Jerry’s Red Velvet ice cream!
Also received notes from Ivon on the script for the horror trailer. Will work on incorporating his thoughts into a revised version. I’ll also have to give that last scene so more thought. I want that build up and payoff to that final image to leave a lasting impression. A lasting, unsettling impression. By the way, Ivon informed me of his purchase of our very first prop: a baseball cap. Exciting, no?
So I went to the bank yesterday and withdrew some cash. Among the bills I received was the new Canadian $100 bill and my first impression upon feeling it blindly in my pocket was: “This can’t be right. It must be counterfeit.” As it turns out, the bill’s unique qualities are intended to thwart counterfeiters. It’s composed of a polypropelyne substrate and includes some raised ink, transparent text, a metallic portrait, hidden numbers, and two transparent windows (once of which contains a hologram of what I believe is the Millennium Falcon). Not only is the new polymer bill more durable than the old banknote, but it is apparently far tastier…
Tonight, we’re off to have dinner at the Cooper’s where we’ll watch the final two episodes of Top Chef Texas. Go, Paul!
Continuing our preview of Dark Matter, here is a sneak peek at the first four pages of issue #3. The crew reacts to last issue’s shocking revelation…
