“Volcano Girl”- the movie!

November 20th, 2010

I’m really thrilled to announce that a short live-action film inspired by “Anyone But Virginia” was just greenlit! Right now it’s called “Volcano Girl,” but that may change. I wrote the script and my good friend Ashley Maria will be directing (she won a Director’s Guild award for her horror/comedy short “Friday Night Fright”). It will be different from the comic, because what works in a 5-issue series is really hard to make fit into a short film. It’ll have more of a comedic tone- and things may very well change as Ashley and her crew move closer to production. But as of right now, here’s what I’m looking forward to in the movie- Virginia, of course. Lucy. Keith, Gil and Jenny (Keith’s blonde girlfriend, she’s a very minor character in the books, you’ll see more of her in issue 4). Salis. A possible Niagara cameo, but I can’t promise that. And a brand-new villain I created just for this movie. It’s going to be a lot of fun. The movie will finish production in May, 2011 and hit the short film festival circuit sometime thereafter. Please check back updates, production stills and other fun nonsense. Zac and I couldn’t be happier!

(and, once I master this new Web site lay out, I’ll post more pages!)
