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.
The Elevator doors open today on Robert Garrett who gives the scoop on 'Galtow'
ELEVATOR (E): Describe 'Galtow' in two sentences or less.
ROBERT GARRETT (RG): 'Galtow' deals with a Society ruled by Clan Houses that wage Gladiatorial contest for supremacy in the streets of New York City in the year 2015.
E: If you were to compare 'Galtow' to a movie or TV show what would it be?
RG: 'Galtow' is a mixture of 'Mad Max' meets 'Mortal Combat', with a sprinkle of 'The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.'
E :Why do you think 'Galtow' would translate to film/TV/animation?
RG: 'Galtow' is designed as a multimedia game that is designed for epic action with a great visual context. I also believe that 'Galtow' makes an excellent platform for an ongoing animation franchise as well as a kick butt video game.
E: How can folks find your comic?
You can order 'Galtow' off of our website at www.xmoorstudios.com. We have been in the stores so you may be able to pick up back issues. We will also have a trade paperback of the first four issues out this summer.
