“The Posthuman Project” to screen Saturday at Comic-Con!
Friday, July 25, 2014
“The Posthuman Project” is going to Comic-Con!
The teen superhero film was written by Speeding Bullet co-owner Matthew Price with former “Supergirl” writer (and former Speeding Bullet employee) Sterling Gates; the film stars Kyle Whalen, Collin Place, Lindsay Sawyer, Josh Bonzie, Alex Harris, Rett Terrell and Jason Leyva. Kyle Roberts is the director of the film as well as the VFX supervisor and editor.
Gates, Roberts, Bonzie, Terrell and Place are joining producers Wendy Parker and Sha’ree Green in San Diego for a screening as part of the Independent Film Festival at Comic-Con International.
It’s been a whirlwind to see all the press and attention the film has gotten since being named “Best Oklahoma Film” at deadCenter in Oklahoma City a month ago.
This week, the film was reviewed by Ain’t It Cool News and featured by Newsarama and the Los Angeles Times. In addition, the comic-book prequel, which is for sale at Speeding Bullet Comics, can now also be ordered online. The prequel comic was written by Gates and Price, and drawn by Oklahoma comic-book artist Mario Wytch.
Fans can see the film at Comic-Con for free at 11:35 a.m. Saturday at the Marriott Marquis & Marina. Fans in Oklahoma will have chances to see the film again soon as well: the film will be screened as part of FLY Film Festival in Enid and the Red Dirt International Film Festival in Stillwater. The film is in many ways our love letter to Oklahoma; with a cast and crew comprised of mostly Oklahomans or former Oklahomans, the film is steeped in love for the state. While Pellion City in the film is fictional, our Posthumans and their friends will likely seem familiar to anyone who attended high school in the state.

Instant Heroes launches Feb. 1!
Friday, January 24, 2014
Presented by Don Rosencrans (”Welcome to Ralton”) and Matthew Price (”The Posthuman Project”), “Instant Heroes” is a collaboration featuring the Oklahoma Comic Creators.
At 2 p.m. on Feb. 1, 2014, Oklahoma Comic Creators will gather at Speeding Bullet Comics, 614 N. Porter Ave in Norman, OK. Teams of 1-4 creators each will have two hours to design a super hero and craft an origin.
From 4 p.m. - 7 p.m., fans will be able to vote for their favorite “Instant Hero.” All the competitors who complete a hero will be featured in the comic “Instant Heroes: An Oklahoma Comics Creators Anthology” from Speeding Bullet Comics.
Price, the co-owner of Speeding Bullet Comics with his wife, Annette, said the store wants to recognize in a fun way the creativity of the talent in Oklahoma. The store has previously hosted “24 Hour Comics Day,” in which creators have 24 hours to complete a comic. A collection of those stories, “OK24,” was published by Speeding Bullet. Price also worked with writer Sean Thiessen on the short film “Paradox” for the 48-Hour Film Contest in Oklahoma City in 2013.
“I think a deadline really motivates people,” Price said. “And I have faith in the creativity of my fellow Oklahoma Comic Creators.”
Each creative team will be presented with certain details at 2 p.m. on Feb. 1 that must be used in the creation of their character.
