Films produced by Lex and The Creators Project
The Creators Project to premiere and distribute first two installments of series
Writer Alan Moore – best known for his groundbreaking graphic novels, which include; The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen, From Hell, V For Vendetta and The Watchmen – and director Mitch Jenkins are making a series of short films. Produced By Lex in association with The Creators Project, the occult, noir flecked pieces are Moore’s first work written specifically for the screen and made with his ongoing creative involvement. The first installment, entitled Act of Faith, stars Siobhan Hewlett (Sherlock, Hotel Babylon, Torchwood) and was recently shot in London. The second, Jimmy’s End, will be filmed in Northampton later this summer. Originally intended as a brief ten-minute, one-off piece, the project has evolved into a multi-layered, multi-episode narrative created by Moore and brought to life by Jenkins. The working title for the overall series is Show Pieces.
Act of Faith and Jimmy’s End will be premiered at The Creator’s Project New York event in October 2012, then released via TheCreatorsProject.com, Vice and Intel’s digital arts platform featuring original programming from leading filmmakers, musicians, artists and designers.
Alan Moore is widely considered to be one of the greatest graphic novelists of all time. His output has sold in the millions, lead to numerous awards and been adapted for feature films. However, Act of Faith and Jimmy’s End are Moore’s first creations written specifically for the screen and made with his endorsement and ongoing creative involvement.
Lex is a London-based production company and record label. The label recently celebrated its tenth anniversary and is best known for releases by Danger Mouse, DOOM (previously MF DOOM) and Neon Neon. In 2010, Lex released Alan Moore & Mitch Jenkins’ first collaborative project, Unearthing, a mesmerizing story written and narrated by Moore set to a score and accompanied by Jenkins’ photography. www.lexprojects.com
