To any latecomers: Donations & pledges are still welcomed..
As you can see by the size of the project, every little helps :)
Howard Glitch is an alchemical story told through 3 different mediums as:
THE WORD [Book]
THE SOUND [Music E.P.] &
THE SIGHT [Visual Artwork]....
Each piece of media tells the story from a radically different perception, ultimately opening it up in a way that lets you decide WHAT THE HELL ACTUALLY HAPPENED INSIDE THAT SHUTTLEBUS???
₪₪₪ THE PLOT ₪₪₪
A group of unfortunate passengers are trapped on a spaceshuttle flight that is headed for a fatal destination.. The only person with the power to turn the shuttle around, is Howard The Decider, who has fallen asleep at the wheel, miles away in the safety of his space station. But not all of the passengers believe that this event is happening by accident, nor without purpose, and so what unfolds is a tense drama of survival and shifting perceptions, that also introduces the themes of existentialism, alchemy, quantum mechanics, and the power of the human spirit to create hope in a chronically hopeless space…
₪₪₪ THE PROJECT ₪₪₪
The mythology of THE DECIDER vs THE DECIDED is expressed as a multimedia jigsaw puzzle:
THE WORD is currently a 30,000 word first draft, that will be refined into a published allegorical novella. An audio book will also accompany it, narrated by Henry Devas (BBC UK)
THE SOUND retells pivotal moments in the story arc, as an abstract conceptual album of strings, stuttering guitars, break-beats & 8bit concertos.
THE SIGHT reincarnates the plot through ink, colour & digital art, exploring the deeper nature of consciousness, and expressing it in both acrylic and cryptic ASCII code art forms. This piece will be embedded inside the Book as Visual Artwork.
₪₪₪ THE MOSAIC ₪₪₪
Everyone who purchases a PHYSICAL copy of the project, will have a unique hand-drawn image in the final page of their Book.... Once everyone receives their copy of the book, a forum will be opened online where everyone can scan in and share their unique image..
Together the jigsaw of images will form a message that leads to an online easter egg hunt for Bonus Material & Downloads.
Your contribution goes to: Writing time, publishing costs, visual art materials, condensor microphones, studio time, and web design.
On reaching our target: Howard Glitch will be finished in time for a spring release. Thank you to everyone that is helping to spread the word, and bring the glitch to life.
