William Blake is one of my favourite authors, creator of some of the wildest, weirdest, most spirited and beautiful writing in the English language. He was also talented enough, and cool enough, to add startling illustrations to his work, laying the foundations for the idea of graphic novels hundreds of years ahead of schedule. For example –
G. E. Gallas is a screenwriter and graphic novelist whose blog, The Poet and The Flea, is an illustrated imagining of the life and times of William Blake. It’s a great way of bringing Blake online, with dramatic drawings that weave around quotes from his poems, and I’ve enjoyed reading through its pages ever since I started my own blog, back in May.

As you may know, I’ve been working the past year or so on trying to put together Death Is No Bad Friend, a short film about Robert Louis Stevenson (Treasure Island, Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde). We managed to raise about $3,000 through crowdfunding on Indiegogo, but we need at least twice as much if not more to make our film possible.
The absolutely talented and wonderful Mary Lachapelle — our director — is putting together (with a bit of my help) a proposal for a number of filmmaking-related grants to help us with Death Is No Bad Friend. We already have some wonderful coverage from Jenny Bhatt and Simon Ball. Now, we need your help to flesh out the “Press & Reviews” section of our proposal.
How to Help (In 4 Easy Steps):
- Check out our old Indiegogo campaign (indiegogo.com/projects/death-is-no-bad-friend) to watch the Death Is No Bad Friend trailer and read more about Siren’s Gaze Productions and our goals for this project.
- E-mail me — G. E. Gallas — at email@example.com and I will send you a copy of the Death Is No Bad Friend screenplay. Please remember that this screenplay is for your eyes only, so please do not post it anywhere online.
- Write a positive/insightful blurb (about 2-6 sentences) about Death Is No Bad Friend. It would be very helpful if you could describe your interest in and/or expertise regarding Robert Louis Stevenson, filmmaking, screenwriting, literature, history, or other related topic. It would also be wonderful if you could explain why you support our film and/or why our film is worthy of receiving a grant.
- Once you have finished writing your blurb, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org or post it to this blog post and I’ll add it to our grant proposal!
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you so much for your help!!!
