I have been making films since high school. I started in Super 8, moved to 16mm, then to 35mm. From the world of amateur films, three friends and I formed a film group and began to produce commercials. My personal favorite was directing the late Desmond Lewellyn, the gentleman who played "Q" in all the James Bond films, in a Bondian spoof commercial. I have written and directed a pilot for the original Sci-Fi Channel called, QUAD 9 and currently writing and directing a steampunk action/adventure web series entitled: Archangel from the Winter's End Chronicles. I am now in the process of turning this series into a 90 minute film and using it also as a pilot for a possible television series. I would love to find a producer who has the same foresight to see the potential for a series like ours in this ever-growing marketplace.

Wells or Jules Verne would have imagined. The last fifty years have brought advancements in just about every aspect of human endeavor. The world has harnessed the might of steel and the power of steam. Men have conquered the skies, the seas and energies never dreamed imagined. It should be a time of peace and great celebration. But as the world's technology progresses, so does the vermin that infest and prey upon the weak. People can no longer live free or without fear. Pirates, crime bosses and gangs now control London and other capital cities throughout the world. And, the infestation is spreading. They strike from the air with their powerful lighter-than-air warships and descend upon the cities of the world without warning.
