From Star Wars to Dungeons & Dragons



When I grew up in the 80's Star Wars was everywhere. Trading cards like these were available in every toy store. The most popular was "Filmisar" from Star Wars. A tiny card with white background and a framed front picture of one of the scenes from the movie.You could buy huge ships, like Tie-Fighters, Transporters, AT-AT and of course The Millennium Falcon.


What a ship. It had everything a 11 year old boy wanted. Unfortunately my parents and I myself didn't afford any kind of that luxury. But I still can feel the smell of the boxes on the shelves in the toy store.
In my hometown Varberg we had two of them. Lek o Bo and I can't remember the other one.
I bought some cards there by my own and the rest of my collection I got it from my friend.
Star Wars figures were not common at home. My brother got one for Christmas in 1984, Yoda. Not the coolest figure, but I got something much better. My Christmas gift was DoD or "Drakar och Demoner". Similar to (Dungeons & Dragons) but with quite different rules. One year earlier my big sister (6 years older than me) had tried the game on an exchange student trip to Ohio. She fell in love with the game and told my parents what I wanted for Christmas. I still remember open up the gift. I actually still have the picture from that night.

Since that Christmas night my life changed forever. I started to play the game 1984 and in 2004 after I've tired at least 30 different RPGs (roleplaying games) I just let it go. Now I have a copy of the game on the shelf, but I haven't played it since. Instead I took some of my own campaigns and developed them into movie scripts and treatments.
Next time I'll tell you about my first script I wrote. There will be whiteness, happiness, gold, a pair of scissors and of course blood ;)

THANK YOU ALL

We had a blast at Den Magiska Biodagen in Alingsås, Sweden.
It was fun to meet the Germans again. René Wiesner (producer) screened the Swedish premier of "ABCS Of Superheroes", which was a really funny splatter comedy.

Steve Aquilina (producer and distributor) showed Violent Shit, by Luigi Pastore.
The soundtrack for that movie was composed by Claudio Simonetti.
It was so beautiful I started to cry.

EMERGE FILM KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN

I'm proud of being involved in Emerge, a scifi which will blow your mind completely.

SYNOPSIS:  
"In a dystopia of Sweden, English has become the main language, the death penalty has been legalized and new methods are developed to handle the increasing criminality. EMERGE is a re-education program tested on murderers. Through dream manipulations they induce empathy, regret and guilt to make sure they don’t commit the crime again. They are tested in a viral world and if they fail this stage the prisoner will obviously relapse which gives the facility a right to kill them and harvest their organs for trade".

The story evolves around Mary who is about to discard a client as a psychopath for his lack of regret killing his wife, but realizes he is innocent of the crime.

 The trailer for EMERGE has been screened at several theaters in Sweden and Denmark.


Even at Weekend of Hell, Europe’s biggest horror event. German magazines such as Virus and

 Marco Erdmann - Wicked Vision (in the middle), 
he saw the trailer for EMERGE and was very impressed. 

Slamdance, Blue Cat, Cine Story, Cinequest and many more praise it. It’s been finalist or semifinalist in several ones, they’ve been invited to Los Angeles and selected to be at Kinoteka in London. Several people in the business, amongst them Philip Eissner - "Event Horizon" (1997), David Keating "Wake wood" (2010) and Brian Udovich - "Wackness" (2008) say they love the concept.
