So it’s been about a year since Variety broke the news about the PULSE movie deal. Since then, the most frequent question I receive from fans is, “Is the movie getting made?!” So I decided to give you all an update. For those of you who are strapped for time, the short answer is, “I don’t know.” But the long answer is much more interesting, so keep reading!
The first step in any movie production is the creation of a script. Over the past year, screenwriter Adam Aresty, has been hard at work on the PULSE script. I know, because I’ve seen several drafts of the screenplay, which is now finished! And here’s what I can tell you about that: it’s awesome. Now, some purists might take exception to some of the changes that inevitably take place when a novel is turned into a movie, but as a screenwriter myself, I recognize the need for the changes and support them.
Once a year for the past three years, I have announced that I was looking for Nemesis fan art to include in the next book in the series. The results have been amazing, with some jaw-dropping illustrations. Well, this year is no different…. Wait. No. That’s not quite right. This year IS different. Why? Because this is the FINAL Nemesis fan art section.
That’s right, Project Legion is the fifth and final book in the Nemesis Saga. It is the crazy-time finale to the very first “kaiju thriller” series , and it is epic on a scale that might even dwarf Godzilla – Final Wars. And to celebrate, I want to include your art in this book. ALL submissions are included in the book. We include art of all skill levels. So don’t sell yourself short! Send in your art and become a part of kaiju history!
And if that’s not incentive enough, everyone who sends in fan art will be entered to win the complete Project Nemesis comic book (issues 1–6, with Matt Frank covers), signed by both Jeremy Robinson and Matt Frank. *U.S. residents only (sorry). The prize will be sent out in October, when Project Legion is released.
Step 1: grovel…oh wait…that’s a different post.
Step 2: Make sure your art is either very large, or 300 dpi (dots per inch) so it looks good in print.
Step 3: Compose an e-mail with the art attached. Include your full name and a link to your deviantart page, or art website (if you have them–if you don’t, no worries). If you want to enter the contest, please include your mailing address.
Step 4: Send that e-mail to jrobinsonauthor(at)gmail.com
Rule 1: Nothing sexual, because these are kaiju. Eww.
Rule 2: No copyrighted characters. As much as we’d like to see Nemesis roasting Stay Puft, I can’t publish that without getting sued. So, no thanks.
Rule 3: To win the contest you have to live in the U.S. of A.
That’s it! Can’t wait to see your art.
