On one side: producers, directors and other Hollywood players looking for the next big thing.
On the other side are the comic book artists and writers creating the next big thing.
In between is...The Comics2Film Elevator.
Five simple questions. Five quick answers. Just enough to start the ball rolling as you ride from ground to roof.
Today, webcomics creator Dave Flora boards The Elevator to pitch his online book 'Ghost Zero'...
ELEVATOR (E): Describe 'Ghost zero' in two sentences or less.
DAVE FLORA (DF): 'Ghost Zero' is the story of a 14-year old boy who, with the ghost of a dead vigilante, hunts down murderers to avenge the helpless dead!
E: If you were to compare 'Ghost Zero' to a movie or TV show what would it be?
DF: I've been told that if H.P. Lovecraft had created 'SHAZAM', 'Ghost Zero' would be the result.
E :Why do you think 'Ghost Zero' would translate to film/TV/animation?
DF: Although there is plenty of action and supernatural thrills, the core of the story is about a small-town boy in 1947, who suddenly has to deal with his life being turned upside-down by being the partner of a cold-blooded vigilante ghost. The humanistic aspect of the story makes it accessible to viewers in any medium.
E: How can folks find your comic?
DF: Readers can order the comic at our website at Ghost0Zero.com , but can also see it at our MySpace page or on Drunkduck.
E: How can folks learn more about you and your work?
DF: The site that will hold the latest information is the Ghost Zero Blog at http://ghost0zero.com
