SEEDS To Be Adapted Into Animated Feature Film

UK Comics Publisher COM.X Is Teaming Up With Production Company SPACE AGE FILMS TO Push Its First Animated Feature Film Into Production.

SEEDS by Ross Mackintosh has been garnering critical acclaim in the US and UK since its release in 2011. It tells the story of a man’s relationship with his terminally ill father.

Space Age Films producer Robert Chandler said of the book:

“This is comics at its best. This is the death of Superman, the agony of Batman, the quest of Wolverine. And it’s all here in this simply illustrated book about a man losing his father to cancer.”

Benjamin Shahrabani from Com.X spoke of the film’s ambition to sit up there alongside serious animated fare such as WALTZ WITH BASHIR and PERSEPOLIS:

“Animation and comics can tackle any subject in the world. Ross’s book walks the same line as Harvey Pekar’s AMERICAN SPLENDOR series and Aneurin Wright’s THINGS TO DO IN A RETIREMENT HOME TRAILER PARK, works that look candidly and personally at life, family and death.”

The LA Times described Seeds as:

“A tribute to every father-son relationship. Seeds is an honest, inquisitive and candid memoir.”

Further information about the writer-director team behind the project, as well as pre-production artwork, will be issued soon.

The film is to be released Spring 2014.

In July 2009, Ross Mackintosh learned that his father had cancer. Seeds is the autobiographical story of one man’s experience of family, life, love and death. Beginning with the diagnosis, then taking us through the journey of his father’s eventual decline, it is a powerful account combining humour, philosophy and honesty.

Robert Chandler is an award-winning producer, currently producing the animated feature film OSCAR WILDE’S THE CANTERVILLE GHOST with Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie and Freddie Highmore.

Com.x is the UK’s most exciting comics house. Its releases include classics such as THE LAST AMERICAN and CLA$$WAR, and new cult favorites 45, BLUESPEAR and MONSTER MYTHS.
