My name is Micah Read, and I am a relative newcomer to the world of entertainment (which makes sense, as I am currently an ambitious college student with a deep interest in the performing arts). I graduated from Lincoln High School in June of 2016; however, as I already have dozens of great ideas, and as I am currently hoping that someone will be interested in at least one of them, I decided to post my profile a bit early.
All of my unfinished play, television & film concepts are guaranteed to be well ahead of my years, and some of them are quite interesting and unique indeed. Unique enough to make "Jovian Sky," the first draft of a story in an untitled space opera, a finalist in Portland Center Stage's Visions & Voices student play competition. It didn't win though -- probably because it was too different from the standard theatrical model, and read more like a screenplay than something one would expect to see on stage.
Since that time, I have been working on several concepts, including a fresh, post-Potter take on the magic school story, three unique musical adaptations of certain famous fantasy novels, and several ambitious original creations for film and theatre (including a post-apocalyptic comedy series and the least likely urban detective fantasy of all time).
Unique traits: Am currently fluent in four anguages (English, French, German and Mandarin Chinese) with basic competency in several more; capable of improvising Ancient, Medieval and Celtic music on a whim; and a highly competent worldbuilder.
