Traveller Updates 01/04/06
- Current Traveller films "Curse of the Del Garria" and the forthcoming
"Red" will be edited in to 15-18minute episodes, with both stories
each comprising of two parts. The decision was made for the benefit of
possible television/cable broadcasts. "It seems a lot more attractive
to have a complete series of five episodes of roughly the same length
rather then a handful of independent films with varied running times,"
replied Andrew when asked about the change "For marketing and
distribution purposes it certainly makes it a lot easier for all of us."
The episodic version of "Curse of the Del Garria" will be available to
view/download online in the near future. This is currently the only
story planned for internet release. Watch this space.
The stories in the first season of Traveller adventures are:
1. "Curse of the Del Garria" (2003) *Pilot story
Written by Mark Robert Ritchie, x2 parts
2. "Red" (2005)
Written by Dale Smith, x2 parts
3. "Man Out Of Time" (2006)
Written by Kaye Redhead, x1 part
*This replaces "Deadly Whispers" due to budgetary constraints
we've had to push this one back again!
