We’re excited to announce that Alan Moore, known the world over for shattering the conventions of graphic novels with classics like Watchmen, V for Vendetta, and From Hell, is collaborating with director Mitch Jenkins on a series of short films produced by Lex in association with The Creators Project. The occult, noir-flecked film pieces are Moore’s first work written specifically for the screen.
The first installment, Act of Faith, stars Siobhan Hewlett and was recently shot in London. The second, Jimmy’s End, will be filmed in Northampton later this summer.
Originally intended as a brief ten-minute, one-off piece, the project has evolved into a multi-layered, multi-episode narrative created by Moore and brought to life by Jenkins. The working title for the overall series is Show Pieces.
We’ll be premiering the first two films in the series this October at The Creators Project: New York 2012 before releasing them online, revealing a brand new side of a truly seminal genius.
