Indigenous Sci-Fi script ‘Kindred’ Earns High Praise

Jun 4, 2016 Phil Parker 1 News, Screenwriting, Screenwriting News , , , , , , , ,

Off the back of his multi-award winning screenplay, ‘The Third Bomb‘, screenwriter Phil Parker was hired to write ‘Kindred‘ – an action/ sci-fi story by director Josh Bryer. Set in the Australian Outback – and with Indigenous Australians in lead roles – Kindred is a rollicking adventure in the vein of District 9 and Star Wars. It tells the tale of one man’s failed alien abduction and how he must work with his would-be captor to save humankind from extinction before the monsters from his past catch up with them.

Already, high praise for Kindred is coming in from industry sources:

“(Kindred is) fantastic, adventurous, and loads of fun as it takes readers across The Outback, introduces them to uncommonly featured peoples, and manages to tell a story of grand proportions… The action and conflict were absolutely awesome… The stakes were high, the energy was great, and the fights were thrilling to read.” – Screencraft.org reader

Indigenous Australian sci-fi has made the news recently with the exciting new series, ‘Cleverman‘ being picked up for a second season by SundanceTV. The brains behind ‘Kindred’ – Josh Bryer and Phil Parker – are also on the lookout for interested producers and agents to help bring their action/ sci-fi tale to life. Your help in spreading the word will surely be appreciated šŸ™‚
