A Personal Note to Fans:
Thanks everyone for the support and encouragement over the past few months. Though my time away has been much longer than I anticipated, I’ve made some slow but steady progress on Red’s Planet and I’m very ready to jump back in full force with the exciting conclusion to Chapter Two.
I also thought some of you might like an little creative update on the from the behind the scenes.
Over the past weeks, not only have I been scripting and designing the rest of the current chapter, but even more important, I have been writing the entire story. I can now say that the first draft of Red’s Planet is nearly finished — with only two or three scenes left to complete.
Since my influence and area of study is film, I like to write in screenplay form as it’s easier for me to visualize the story and the story structure. From that point, I adapt the script for comic pages. For a movie script, it is still a little long at 127 pages, but after a rewrite, I think it will balance out at 120 pages — perfect screenplay length. Now the first act of the story (roughly chapters One through Four), have been locked for some time. It was the remainder of the story that I needed to tie-down and really know where we are going.
Following the rewrite, my plan is to find some trusted individuals — hopefully colleagues of mine in the film and animation industry — to read it and give me honest feedback.
And for those who are curious — if you were watching Red’s Planet the movie, chapter Two begins somewhere around 15 minutes into the film and ends near the 30 minute mark.
