Ben Alpi to Collaborate with Writer Edward Morgan on Sci Fi Project
From Ben: Happy New Year! I’m happy to announce that I’ll be working with writer Edward P. Morgan III on a yet-to-be-named science fiction film. Edward is a very talented prose writer that I met at Dragon*Con three years ago (along with his lovely wife Karen!) We got on immediately talking about novel writing and the many traps and snares set for writers these days. We come from very different backgrounds, yet have similar interests. We got to talking about screen writing, something Edward was very interested in learning about, and the seed was planted.
Edward writes, “It’s always a pleasure to work with (or just be around) someone who shares so many of the same creative interests and ideals. Since our first meeting, Ben has been a patient teacher regarding my (sometimes naive and simplistic) questions about the world of film, an alien landscape to me. His observations on storytelling continue to send me scrambling to remember all the pieces of writing theory I’ve once read. He has a quick and masterful eye. Attending a photography exhibition with him in January was like a lesson in lighting and framing in itself. I look forward to seeing where this journey will take us and how our different backgrounds will blend into a unified creative vision.”
I’ve been developing a new sci fi project over the winter and after Edward and I talked about it, we agreed a collaboration would be an exciting learning experience for both of us. Edward’s vision is so different from mine, I really think this will be a ton of fun. Tally-ho friends!
