from Project London:
Spiral Productions LLC, producers of Project London — the virtually no-budget, live action, science fiction film featuring 774 vivid, intense visual effects with animations created using open-source 3D software — announced today the availability of two novels from the movie’s website, projectlondonmovie.com. The prequel novella, Project Manhattan, is the first installment of the story that culminates in Project London. A graphic novel of Project London, based on the movie’s screenplay, presents a much darker exploration of the epic story and realigns it into a completely new, visual experience for the printed page.
The two new books debuted at the 2011 Emerald City Comicon in March, where the supplies of each book sold out at full price, with minimal promotion, to both existing and new fans of Project London from around the world. Showing its support for the movie’s growing fan base, Spiral Productions has made digital previews of the two books available for free on the Project London website, including the first 15 pages of Project Manhattan and 61 pages (nearly half) of the graphic novel.
Both Project Manhattan and the Project London graphic novel are now available for media reviews and will also be available at Norwescon 34, the Pacific Northwest’s premier science fiction and fantasy exhibition hosted in SeaTac, Washington, April 22-24. The next steps for the books include feature trailers soon available on YouTube, the release of digital (both) and audio (Project Manhattan) versions, and global distribution via Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.
