The writing team of Savage Umbrella’s current creative baby sure has hit the ground running. Trust me when I say our Google Drives overfloweth with scenes and material these talented scribes are creating.
Rachel Nelson stares out at the writing team of Lisa Brimmer, Megan Clark, Seth Conover, Timothy Otte, Blake E. Bolan and Tanner Curl, who are furiously pounding away at keyboards before being taken up.
Here’s the story the writing team started with:
In Rapture, a tenth of the world’s population suddenly disappears. This isn’t a biblical event. It is pieced together that all those who vanished were, in some fashion, artists. The media dubs the event, "The Artists’ Rapture." Two of those left behind are Evelyn and Lucy, a grandmother and granddaughter. Evelyn is a commercially successful painter. Lucy is a post-college artist trying to figure out who she is and what/why she wants to create. They are both left wondering, "Why wasn’t I taken in the Rapture?" Joining Evelyn and Lucy: the alcoholic specter of controversial artist Thomas Kinkade and a young, enthusiastic art appreciator, Eddie.
