I have two projects that are currently in the back of my mind right now:
One project is called 'Mighty Jack' Skyler, an extraordinary something of a dinosaur-infused teen comedy adventure fantasy movie with dinosaurs that is about an adventurous teenage guy who lived in an exotic, Dinotopia-inspired alternate/secondary world where dinosaurs and humans co exist–side by side–in true Dinotopia fashion.
Also known to his peers and neighbors as “Mighty Jack”, Jack Skyler spends his after-school time playing and wrestling with or even lording over the dinosaurs–great or small–that shared his world, sorta like a teenage guy version of Crocodile Dundee (though Jack wrestles or plays with dinosaurs instead of Australian animals, which Crocodile Dundee wrestles or plays with).
Jack Skyler’s friend is Dexter Zarus, a half-white, half-Asian, multi skilled genius-expert at everything, and who has an oldest brother and an oldest sister.
Jack and Dexter didn’t know each other at first, but became friends and help each other get through life amidst the vibrant, exotic colors and sounds of the Dinotopia-inspired alternate/secondary world where dinosaurs and humans co exist in true Dinotopia fashion.
Anyhow, if Shaun of the Dead was a mix of romantic comedy and zombie-infused horror film, then I actually conceive ‘Mighty Jack’ Skyler as an extraordinary something of a dinosaur-infused teen comedy adventure fantasy movie with dinosaurs which may take forever to make, even as one of the most elaborate and one of the most Hollywood blockbuster-sized indie film projects ever made.
The other project in the back of my mind could really come next in line after 'Mighty Jack' Skyler, and it is to be a theatrical big screen animated feature film that may probably return to the world and/or universe that the Russian-born but USA-based animation director Genndy Tartakovsky first created with his 1990s involvement with the Cartoon Network series Dexter's Laboratory.
But while the old-gold original 1990s Dexter's Laboratory episodes by Genndy Tartakovsky (up until Last But Not Beast in 1998, followed by the Ego Trip movie in 1999) will be indeed the jumping off-point for a theatrical widescreen animated feature film of mine, out of the creative process may evolve a new, grand, epic, original mythology and universe in which the events of the 1990s Dexter's Laboratory/Dial M For Monkey/Justice Friends segments up until Last But Not Beast and Ego Trip takes place.
And yes, the keen fan may recognize strands of the DNA of Genndy Tartakovsky's 1990s work on Dexter's Laboratory or maybe his work on Samurai Jack (which he made after working on the Dexter's Laboratory Ego Trip movie), so to speak, and yes, at the opening and closing 15 minutes, respectively, you may still realize that there will be a piece of DNA of Genndy's work on the Dexter's Lab or Justice Friends or Dial M For Monkey segments up until Last But Not Beast and Ego Trip in 1998 and '99, respectively, but hopefully none of it in-between.
In short, my next project after 'Mighty Jack' Skyler is to be a grand epic story that could share a storytelling universe with Cartoon Network and Genndy Tartakovsky's Dexter's Laboratory, in particular the old gold classic 1990s seasons with the Classic Dexter/Dial M For Monkey/Justice Friends segments up until Last But Not Beast and Ego Trip, respectively, but not always.
Yes, there will still be some scientific notions and some storytelling archetypes that I may inherit from Genndy's 1990s work on Dexter and Monkey and The Justice Friends (despite Dexter's Lab being a pretty standard cartoon show as far as storytelling), but I will not really telling the same old Dexter's Lab story or the same old Dial M For Monkey story or the same old Justice Friends story.
I'd rather open up a whole new branch of epic science fiction fantasy mythology, even though it might still be set in the same world and/or universe as Genndy Tartakovsky's classic 1995/1996-1998/1999 work on Dexter's Laboratory up until 1998's Last But Not Beast and 1999's Ego Trip movie.
But I'd also rather if I could work on 'Mighty Jack' Skyler first.
Anyway, do you have any comment or opinion on these two film project ideas of mine?
