Best Cop show on YouTube

It took a while but I've finally finished - part 2 - of the DIE Chronicles graphic novel. And even if I say so myself, it's awesome - despite being lots of hard work to put together by myself.

I think the addition of voices would really add to the experience of a show in this format, so if you know any (or are a) talented VO actor(s) who can record their voice on their own computer and do a great North American accent - let me know.

The novel has developed it's own format, YouTubers and visitors to this blog help shape the story line. It's turned into a Cop Thriller/Horror and the story outline for episode one follows the escape of a copy-cat serial killer called Andrew Mundi. Mundi has escaped for the sole purpose of killing the six people who contributed to his demise before returning to prison to take a lethal dose.

Each of his victims will be off'd according to the roll of Mundi's imaginary die, which appears stigmata-like on the palm of his hand. The only person that can stop Mundi is the intuitive Detective Q, who is also on the list, as he was the arresting officer who brought Mundi to justice.

So far, other characters include a super sharp and logical thinking lap-dancer called Violet whose strange kinship with Q leads to the most unusual crime fighting duo since Monk. Not forgetting William, the jealous career cop who thinks Q is as bad as the scum he puts away.

Here's part 2;



Look forward to suggestions for the next installment.

We just got featured!

After three months of hard grind we just got another break!

YouTube has decided to feature the graphic novel spin-off, which means loads of hits and a big audience. To prove it we've got 11,000+ hits in just one day.

So in response I've written the next instalment based on the roll. Check out the group for more info on the roll. http://uk.youtube.com/group/diechronicles

Here you go;

Dark, moody office. A shadowy figure is sleeping off a major hang-over at his desk.

The door bursts open and scrawny looking DI pokes his head round.

SCRAWNY
Hey Q! Your wife's... sorry ex-wife's on line 2 she wants to know if you can take the kids this weekend. Think she's plannin' a trip to Florida with somebody called Barry?

Q hardly lifts his head.

Q
I'm busy!

SCRAWNY
Ok..
(Closing door)
Oh. Yeah and that killer you put away. He's out!

Q
(More interested, to urgent)
Which one?... Don't tell me it's Mundi isn't it!

CUT TO:

COLORADO STATE PENN

Q stands with the Boss of the penn a portly man with a limp. All around them is the devastation of Mundis escape. As the Boss talks we see flashes of the escape as it happened. Spread across the video screens.

BOSS
13 men... I've never lost a man in twenty years and today I lose 13.

Q
Try to concentrate! Ok. Show me what happened!

Layed over various video clips from the screens - re-wound and played back.

BOSS
As soon as the flap goes down something hits the guard in the face...

BOSS
...The second guard enters with his gun drawn... standard procedure. A shots fired and Mundi gets out...

BOSS
...He kills 8 guards on his way out until he finds the laundry van.

Q
The van... mates of Mundi?

BOSS
We don't know... he get's in the back and the van smashes right through the gates killing 3 more.

Q
Ok. Thanks.

BOSS
Don't thank me, we should have put him down a long time ago... and now he's out there!


Sorry about the lack of proper script formatting but it doesn't work on the blog. I'm sure you get the idea. So comment away and if you like it I'll make it over the next couple of weeks.

Keep rollin!
