Okay, I don’t know that author Jeremy Robinson named a villain after me, but there is a super genius villain in his Chess Team books that is named Richard Ridley. I kind of like being the super evil bad guy. I met Jeremy via email way back in the day when we both just had a couple of books on the market. Since then he’s authored and co-authored around 50 titles.
Jeremy has started a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for a short film called Dust. The film is based on an upcoming book titled The Distance written by Jeremy and his wife Hilaree Robinson. It’s a post-apocalyptic love story that will scare the pants off you.
I’m particularly interested in seeing Jeremy succeed with this for a couple of reasons. One, if this movie is a success, maybe he’ll bring one of his Richard Ridley books to the big screen, and two, I’ve been thinking about pursuing a Kickstarter campaign for a short film myself for quite awhile now, but I’ve always been too terrified to do it. If Jeremy can pull it off, I might have the courage to give the idea serious consideration.
So, checkout, Jeremy’s project and help an author out. He’s teamed up with a very talented director by the name of Kenneth Dodge. I was blown away by his samples on the Kickstarter page – DUST – A Sci-Fi / Horror Short Film
