ETIQUETTE FOR AN APOCALYPSE
Unexpected, funny, and yes, a quirky story set in the near future of a Portland we still recognize, even through the lens of disaster. Anne Mendel offers a zeitgeist and novel look at the genre. Check out my conversation with Anne, below. Check out Anne's real-life survival guide tips HERE. AMPEDAMPED
is a sort of a follow up to his enormously successful and soon to be a Dreamworks picture, ROBOPOCALYPSE
.. Daniel Wilson
has crafted a near-future world inhabited by a segment of the population whose health issues are helped by a tiny implanted device in their brain. Civil rights battles ensue. And dark issues threaten from which there may be no moral return. Geeky and smart , AMPED
has a sense to it that it might be an actual reality in the not too distant future.
