With a writing partner Greig, we wrote a Transformers G1 comic book script that takes place in the original 80s cartoon continuity. The actual elevator pitch for the project reads: Based on the original cartoon series, The Transformers: ReAnimated, bridges the gap between the end of the seminal second season and the 1986 Movie that defined the childhood of millions.
Following the advice of a friend and mentor within the comic book publishing industry, we submitted our script to IDW Publishing and were promptly rejected. Not wanting to see our hours of hard work and hundreds of personal dollars thrown away that we put into to presenting this script to IDW Publishing, we decided to release the script as fan fiction on the website: Transformers: Reanimated.
The response to issue 1 was beyond anything that Greig and I could have imagined. There clearly is a hunger for true Transformers G1 stories. For the time being Greig and I are going to feed that hunger by writing more scripts to be released monthly.
If you want to see what I have been busy with and enjoy some good Transformers G1 awesomeness, head on over to Transformers: Reanimated and let us know what you think!
You may have noticed that my site here has changed a little bit. Some posts are no longer showing up. I haven’t been writing as much. Well, I have a good answer for you as to why that is happening.
You see… I made a move to the YOSHICAST.com. I moved a lot of my geeky posts over to the YOSHICAST.com. The new website is where I have been doing most of my posts. My site here will be saved for more personal posts. But I am spending most of my time over at the YOSHICAST creating videos and content or all to enjoy. Please go check it out!
I found a great little post titled ‘Scott Belsky on How to Avoid Idea Plateaus‘ hosted over at BrainPickings.org. In the post and video on the Brain Pickings website Scott talks about strategies to keep a person, or a team, from running out of steam when trying to see an idea to fruition. He also gets into why this even happens in the first place.
It’s a great little post and thought it was worth sharing since I got quite a bit out of it. Enjoy.
Bob Iger is the current CEO of The Walt Disney Company. This guy is someone who caught my attention early on when he started working as CEO for Disney because he gave an interview in TIME magazine, I believe ( I still have the interview clipping) where he talked about his normal work day and how he manage to get things done. Little tips and tricks he shared with the Magazine. Things like how to make sure he had enough time to just get work processed that was sitting on his desk. How to properly thank people and to use history as a key to master the future. I guess you could say he is someone I respect and find inspiration in.
The other day I saw this video posted on hulu. I have no Idea how long the video will be available, but I wanted to share with anyone who is interested.
