Episode details

Hey guys, it's Scott.

And I just wanted to make a short post to let you know about something that I think is just amazing. My buddy, and I think the best writer on the stands right now, James Tynion IV, has teamed up with Elsa Charretier and PK Colinet to make a short live-action horror film on Kickstarter. It's called Room Service.

It's going to be unbelievable. He told me about it a long time ago and I can't believe it's finally coming to fruition, it's going to blow your minds. It's about a peek behind the dark door of extreme wealth where anything, any desire, is acquirable. So it's going to be brutal, it's going to be twisted, and it's going to be great. And, even better, if you back the campaign, you can get the original comic book prequel to the film as an add-on.

And there’s going to be this beautiful art book with James's screenplay and Elsa storyboards…

…and original comic book storyboard art…

…and all kinds of goodies available as campaign tiers.

Holy Crap!! We're Making A Horror Movie On KICKSTARTER And We Need Your Help!
I wish I remember where exactly I was driving home from. I know I was driving south toward my home in New York City. So, I must have started somewhere in the Catskills or New Jersey. It was about a three hour drive, due to heavy traffic, and I was tired. It was just after Thanksgiving…

Back the ROOM SERVICE campaign now!
Movies, PK Colinet and I have a history. At 12, PK directed me in our school theater play. Even then, I remember it clear as day, while we were all running around the community center ecstatic we got to skip gym class, he was there to do a job. A tween, but driven and with a vision. We then lost touch for a few years until our love for anything creative…

Again, if you back one Kickstarter this year, make it this one. There's nothing that James is involved in that isn't spectacular, so I really hope you'll do it. I already backed it. And again, I've been looking forward to it for a long time and I can promise you, it's going to scare the shit out of you.


P.S. Another really cool add-on you can get is the Illustrated Prose Book, which is gonna be a zine-sized mini-publication with a short prose story set in the world of Room Service, written by James with spot illustrations by Elsa. I know I’m getting one, and you should too, because they’re only being printed for this campaign!
