Seeking Concept Artist for Film Pitches

emullarky Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2012
I am currently working with a screenwriter and director on a film version of my graphic novel, H.G. WELLS' THE CHRONIC ARGONAUTS, and am looking to add to our team as we build a nice pitch package for producers and studios. Having a talented concept artist on board would be a huge benefit.

Feel free to contact me at with sample art and required rates. More information about the project can be found below and on our web site, [link].


"Adapted from a short story by H.G. Wells; A brilliant scientist in search of a golden age and a Victorian Methodist preacher journey from the hills of 19th Century Wales through the time stream to the end of days."

Genre: Science Fiction/Action

The mysterious Dr. Moses Nebogipfel arrives in a small Welsh town in 1887. The apprehensions of the simple rural folk eventually cause them to storm the inventor's workshop in an effort to avenge perceived witchery. Nebogipfel escapes with one other person, the sympathetic Reverend Elijah Ulysses Cook, in what is later revealed to be a time machine. After having been missing for three weeks, Cook returns, aged many years older. He talks about a journey that took the duo to the days of mankind's last stand against an alien invasion in the 41st Century, and even further into the future to a time when humans are no longer the dominant life form on Earth.

Originally written by a 22-year old H.G. Wells in 1888, "The Chronic Argonauts" is considered to be the first well-developed use of a 'time machine' in science fiction. It predates his more famous time traveling novel, 'The Time Machine', by seven years, yet has never been adapted for other media. While Wells' version ends with a cliff-hanger, New Baby Productions has expanded the story with an adventure that is influenced by the legendary writer's other works.
