The idea has recently evolved. Now I want these characters to move their mouths in a scene. I wanted to synch it with the actors talking. Now the show will look more like a Saturday afternoon superhero comic book cartoon.
Now keep in mind my idea is not revolutionary. Animated cartoons have been around since Walt Disney created Mickey Mouse. What is different is this has never been tried with a theater company at least as far as I know. It has never been tried with an online theater company. The other aspect of this show that is slightly different, is when you watched Spiderman, or the Fantastic Four did those series have an arc? No you just watched Spiderman’s latest skirmish with the Green Goblin or Doc Oc. This one does have an arc.
What I am hoping is that I have created enough suspense and intrigue into this series that you will want to tune in every week and discover how it plays out. I want you to feel each roller coaster ride that Drake and Kitty take. I want you to root for Drake and Kitty even when things look lost. I hope that you will hiss and boo at Shadow, Morphine and Clayton Baxter. I want you to be mystified by Drake’s spiritual guides as they lead him to a higher consciousness. I want you to use your imagination. I want you to be drawn in by the unbelievable X-files quality and blown away by it when it occurs.
I promote this show a lot on Facebook. If I come off as an obnoxious over confident SOB, I can assure you that’s far from the case. What you see is my passion coming out and my drive. Not just for this show, but for what theater and story can be if given the chance. I’ve been living with this guy since I was in my latter years in college. Drake started out as a lawyer in another series and then became a telekinetic Private Eye in this one. His story is fascinating to me. I hope it will be just as fascinating to you. if I can keep you fascinated by Drake Darrow, Kitty Lange, Harriett Alfredsson, Father Michael, Ringer then you will be back for more. If I can keep you coming back for more, then that means I have done my job. My job is to take an hour out of your life and help you escape any troubles or worries you may have.
I hope that you will enjoy this show and remember one of the first lines the Dream Keeper has in the Pilot Episode. “Dreams are reality and all reality is a dream.” It will become useful later as you watch this show and experience the thrill ride you are about to take.
Hi, my name is Peter Murray. I am a scriptwriter and I started this blog as a way of promoting my own writing, which is mostly plays, screenplays and television scripts. bMy background is unique. My father is a retired theater Professor and both my parents acted at The Barnstormers Summer Stock Theatre in Tamworth New Hampshire, which was founded by my Godfather, Francis G. Cleveland, who was the son of President Grover Cleveland. Having all that history within my family and a Godfather who started a theatre, it was natural that I became interested in theater. I attended Johnson State College in Vermont with the specific purpose of becoming an actor. However, scriptwriting took over. I have been writing plays since I was about twelve. I would see a Barnstormer production and say, I can do that. Yes I could do that, but in those early years, not so well. As time went on I became much more proficient with a good ear for dialogue, plot and character development. I have written a few plays. Two were produced in Vermont, a one act for First Night in Burlington called "KIng Stud," and another titled Crossing The Bridge. The latter was also taken to the Barnstormers and done at the professional level with my Dad directing. My other writing includes a few movie scripts. One is a trilogy I am working on called Derby Double. It's an action adventure sports series dealing with Soccer. Another script is called the Third Eye about a metaphysical detective(Currently trying to work that into a television series.) And currently I am working on a television series about my childhood, both here in New Hampshire and England, where I lived for five years. I call this series, "Letters from England." I have five episodes in the can and you can read them here.
