Development Pitch

Zorax Zoomster is a fresh, sci-fi original story that tells a thrilling adventure of a teenage alien hero group battling for freedom in a futuristic dystopian universe. As the story develops, Zorax’s team of heroes grows, each member possessing a unique superpower and personality to go along with it. Zorax’s galaxy taps into the fun of alliteration with most people and places beginning with the letter Z, encouraging the audience to really pay attention to who each character is and expand their imagination. The story is centred around determination, teamwork, patience, growth, forgiveness, and the battle for liberation against oppression. There are countless mini adventures and action-packed scenes in the book, sustaining the audience’s engagement and building overall excitement through the entire story arc. I envision an adaptation of this story as a 3D animated movie with mature-looking characters with a dark element of color schemes, music score, and suspenseful cinematic action. It could easily as well be a TV series, with the first season focusing on the entirety of the first book or the first half. The story has the potential to be one of the biggest hero quest stories of this time, with elements of popular stories like Star Wars & Avatar: The Last Airbender. Zorax is the next massive, unforgettable franchise to hit netflix or the theatres over the next several years with even greater and bigger stories to come with the later books of the series.

About The Author

Shemar enjoys expressing himself through the art of storytelling, film, and creative writing. The Adventures of Zorax Zoomster is the first published written work that he has released in 2012. This is followed by his most recent publication of the comic book series, “Modern Monarchy: The Caveman King”. On the other hand, Shemar has an animated Youtube Series entitled, “City Crooks” which mirrors similar adventurous and action-packed elements as the Adventures of Zorax and Modern Monarchy do. City Crooks tells the story of two high school teenagers, Jake and Billy, who live in Cone City, a town rampant with crime and filled with corrupt politicians and criminals. Shemar was recently published in the well-regarded KivoDaily at https://www.kivodaily.com/?s=shemar+james and more of Shemar's works can be at https://www.lulu.com/spotlight/sjbooks.
