Update: Runic’s Projects in Development

From Ben:

Sliding back into the writer’s chair has been a truly rewarding experience. I’ve never really stopped writing, but I’ve been inspired lately to flex those muscles anew. I’m happy to say that we have a bevy of cool stuff coming although, I can’t reveal many details!

My sci fi collaboration with writer Edward Morgan has been greatly successful. The story surrounds a soldier who is given the chance to assassinate the man responsible for his son’s murder and must decide whether or not to take the shot. The last draft I read from Edward was truly inspired. Edward’s unique eye is gritty and real. Love it.

A great western-with-a-twist that we’ve nicknamed Cowboy Creed is ready to shoot. More here. And expect to hear more about this short film about a young sheriff’s deputy very soon!

Also, I’ve been increasingly troubled by current events and have responded with an mixed medium short film script called Looking Up. It’s a deeply touching film about heroes and uses both animation and live action. More about that here.

As some of you know, I’m also deep into a feature script with screenwriter Thomas Mercer. About all I can tell you is it’s set in a future that never was—a “World of Tomorrow” paleo-sci fi genre piece in the Art Deco style complete with giant dirigibib, dririgid, di–zepplins. I can’t wait to share this one! A fantastic female scientist leads the cast and let me tell you, she really knocks those early 20th century stereotypes on their ears!

Lastly, Bob and I have been working on a super hero project which is really taking form. It’s a mythic coming-of-age story set in contemporary times.

The future is seriously bright folks. Stay attuned for more mythic goodness!
