Q&A with Cast & Crew
Begins: Sa2030
Location: S4
This short film project currently in production in Arizona is the prequel to the successful Villikon Chronicles graphic novel series. The lead character, Mystere, was introduced in the novels and her feature-length backstory entitled The Crucibles of Mystere. Diciples of Dido is an excerpt from this screenplay that pits Mystere in a fight for sisterhood with a tribe of wiccans and brings her face to face with the ultimate evil: the creature named Dido. In the tradition of Star Wars, Dune, and Lord of the Rings, the Villikon Chronicles are an epic adventure in science fiction/fantasy that is deep in plot, character development, and culture.
