THE D (February 11, 2008) - Comics2Film.com announced today the launch of "THE ELEVATOR", a new regular feature aimed at connecting filmmakers with comic creators.
Looking back at 2007, about one in every five of the #1 movies at the box office were based on comics. With diverse material ranging from 'Transformers' to 'Persepolis', from '30 Days of Night' to 'TMNT', it's clear that the comics medium provides rich source material for today's filmmakers.
As the web's longest-running resource devoted to the subject of movies and TV shows based on graphic novels, Comics2Film is able to provide the ideal common ground for comics creators to unveil their new projects to Hollywood.
Running several times a week, THE ELEVATOR will put the spotlight on one new comic. The creator of the comic will present the basics of what the comic is and why it will work as a film or TV show in a quick, bite-sized Q&A.
"I'm very excited to provide this forum to introduce comic writers and artists to the producers, directors and other filmmakers that have made Comics2Film a regular stop over the past ten years," said C2F editor Rob M. Worley. "Clearly, Hollywood's interest in comics continues to grow, and so too do the number of new comics hitting the market each week."
The first installment of THE ELEVATOR launched this morning. Indie favorite author Dwight L. MacPherson is the first to step onto the lift, and provide the scoop on his best-selling graphic novel, 'The Surreal Adventures of Edgar Allan Poo'.
