Dear Markus A. Campo:
The following presentation concerns a trilogy of screenplays I have written about a small planet near planet Earth called Otherland. I am represented by Alex Sullivan, Literary Agent, The Leo Film & Books Agency Ltd.
This original concept is written for 8 years and upwards, to be filmed using either animation or live-action characters, or a combination of both. There is huge potential for commercial and creative success with these projects.
The three completed feature screenplays are action-fantasy stories about the adventures of thirteen year-old Bunker Charles and his twelve year-old friend, Gittel Carmichael.
The first two Legend of Otherland books (upon which the screenplays are based) have been published in paperback and can be purchased at amazon.com and other leading retailers.
Needless to say, I will be very happy to submit one or more of the three completed feature-length screenplays upon your request. I am including my writing credits with this proposal.
Please reply to:
Alex Sullivan, Literary Agent
The Leo Film & Books Agency Ltd
London EC3N 1LS
Tel: +44(0)20 8905 5191
I have taken the liberty of presenting you below short synopses of the Legend of Otherland projects for your review, and would be delighted to provide you with any further information you may need.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Tel: +1 562-438-4180
#1 Legend of Otherland � Evil Does Exist
Bunker Charles is bored. He is the future King of Otherland, a peaceful planet not too far from planet earth, and rich beyond belief. But his life lacks adventure and excitement. His only friends are cuddly little creatures called canfers. They are cute, furry and adorable but are no replacement for real friends. One day after counting geesepence in his room high above in the castle, he sees an irregularity on his computer screen. Something evil that has not been seen for a long time on the �good� side of Otherland has just kidnapped young Gittel. The Evil Pencinell is back and only Bunker can save Gittel from the witch�s clutches. He must also face soldier refnacs, a terrible sea monster, and the most-dreaded Carno, a crazed two hundred-pound refnac. Bunker faces his fears, and along with Gittel and the cutest of canfers, Dillon, they do win the battle against evil in the Legend of Otherland.
#2 Legend of Otherland � Adventure Underground
Thirteen-year-old Bunker Charles awakens one morning to find himself confronted by a one-inch tall man with a laser gun who takes him prisoner. He forces Bunker to take him down to the center of Otherland in his cobamole to where his people, the Floogleboppers, live. These one-inch tall Floogleboppers mine a precious substance called mangolite. This wonderful mineral has power to light up the entire country in the center of the planet; and in laser form, can be very deadly. The Bargolians, who also live underground, are one foot tall and plan to declare war on the Floogleboppers to steal their mangolite. Bunker was kidnapped to frighten the Bargolians away from the Floogleboppers because of his giant size. Bunker�s friend, twelve-year-old Gittel, follows him underground to rescue him but is captured by the High Priest and Sorcerer of Bargolia. She is put under a spell and they make her their bar-queen. The Bargolians have created the dreaded bar-goyles from unwilling childre!
n to fight the Floogleboppers. It becomes Bunker against Gittel in the great Flooglebopper war. Through skillful reasoning, Bunker helps bring the two countries together in a positive way, instead of through violence. He helps the Floogleboppers trade their precious mangolite for Polytanium, a precious fuel the Bargolians have and which the Floogleboppers need. When the evil sorcerer�s crystal ball is shattered, Gittel is herself once again. The Floogleboppers want to make Bunker their hero, but he is anxious to return to the topside. Bunker and Gittel do return to the topside of Otherland and wonder if anyone will ever believe the mysterious adventures they have just encountered at the center of Otherland.
#3 Legend of Otherland � Adventure in Space
Bunker and Gittel are accidental stowaways on Steven Charles� new spaceship. The magnificent ship is powered by magnets in a gyroscope environment and is pulled into another universe/dimension by the mad ruler of planet Acron, Master Kyron. When they reach the planet of Acron, they realize it is a duplicate of planet earth, but with marked differences. The rich, who are four-eyed graymanoids, live above the ground in high rises and travel about through giant tubes to separate them from the people down below, the working class people who have been abducted from planet earth or Otherland. Bunker and Gittel venture to the people down below and find the people ready to revolt against the tyranny that exists above. Bunker helps to avert a revolution by talking instead of fighting. Through a series of adventures, they are able to help the people down below attain their rightful place on planet Acron before they head back to earth. The escapade seems to take a lot of time but when !
they return to Otherland, they find they are back on the same day they left. They traveled so fast they find they have broken through time and space. Bunker, Gittel, and Steven are more than glad to be back home in time for dinner.
