Man of God's inception...
One day I was trying to come up with ideas for a short film. I was looking for something that was not typical. I was having no luck.
It took Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back for me to get the idea.
"It is your destiny!' ... "I'll never join you!"
What if there was someone who was outside the laws of destiny, outside "Gods plan"? What kind of power would this person have? What kind of life?
It then exploded in my head and I knew that I wasn't going to be able to tell this story in 15 minutes.
By the end of the week I had written the basic outline for the series that is now in development and I have designed it as a TV series with about 66 episodes of about an hour long each. Five years later and the basic story hasn't actually changed that much. The medium has changed and I have learned a great deal of new things about my characters but each evolution and edit has been wholly natural and fluid.
This natural evolution will be seen by readers in how there are 'spin-off' stories for many of the characters.
The Fried Brain Productions motto is, after all, "Everyone has a story to tell"
Here are some early character sketches for two of the lead characters; Lucifer and James Huntley.
