#Zombienomicon (R) Eisegesis selected for PKD Film Festival!

The Philip K. Dick Film Festival has officially selected Zombienomicon Eisegesis to be part of its competition in 2017. We are in the virtual reality / new media / script category.

This is a great honor and I hope we both do justice to the memory of the complex genius of PKD as well as earn accolades for all the hard work that has gone into the Zombienomicon (R) project over the last seven years.

There is a permanent link to Zombienomicon Eisegesis in the lefthand sidebar, and above it a link to the graphic novel which is a slice out of the worlds on the website. Both the GN and the website were provided to the PKD Film Festival for their event.

I hope people love exploring both the worlds of PKD and the ever expanding cosmos of Zombienomicon (R)!

 

Animation project

Flying Tiger Comics will be devoted to an animation project in 2017. The proposal is to produce webisodes, comics and eventually an animated film using a mixture of stop motion and computer animation, with conventional, 3D and interactive fiction versions of the finished animations.

The physical set design has commenced as has the storyboarding. Voice acting for the different languages will commence in several months. The comic books will be produced once enough footage and stills have been produced to support a publication.

 

Review: Jurassic World

9b3I really thought, despite the fact he’s a pedo of some sort, that commercial desire would outpace his preoccupations and allow him to make some interesting films. Instead, we get trademark FUCKING annoying “kids” and just fucking terrible crap all round.

Also since they keep edging towards my trademarked and copyrighted concept from 2003, I just want to end by reminding everyone that “DNAosaur” and the detailed concept of a genetically engineered creature that looks the way we WANT dinosaurs to look is trademark and copyright Jonathan Peter Nolan 2003, 2005 and 2016 and following, all rights reserved worldwide.

This is the Jurassic version of Jaws 3, right down to the blackface billionaire.

 

 

Ever Notice

Ever notice how many heroes in film resemble idealised versions of the director’s own view of himself?

Watching scanners it struck me how not the Scanner but the psychiatrist helping him (and interpreting the film for us) looks quite a bit like a more filled out benevolent version of the contemporary Cronenberg. There are other examples – even Star Wars 1977 had this element.

Interesting.
