The Hive has begun production on a feature length motion comic with director Marty Weiss based on his Amazon Studios winning script The Alchemist Agenda. The screenplay was selected from thousands of participants and won Amazon Studios' December 2010 Best Script Award as well as their February 2011 Best Test Movie Award. The Alchemist Agenda is an action-adventure story about a thrill-seeking treasure hunter who finds a cloaked U-boat off the coast of New York and embarks on an international pursuit to unlock the mysteries buried inside with a beautiful professor who has a secret agenda of her own. A motion comic is an animated comic book. All artwork for The Alchemist Agenda will be created specifically for the project. Motion comics are a unique medium in which to tell the story and create a specific style for the film. Marty Weiss became known for creating comedic and highly visual commercials directing hundreds of national and international image campaigns for major Blue Chip brands and TV Networks before segueing into longer form projects. Weiss helmed his first feature length film Vampires: The Turning for Sony/Screen Gems Entertainment - an action/horror movie that evolved out of John Carpenter's Vampires. It was filmed in Chiang Mai Thailand and released worldwide in 2005. We are always looking to work with creative filmmakers on exciting projects. It is a great honor to be chosen by Amazon Studios script winner Marty Weiss to help create a Motion Comic from his action packed script says Yesenia Higuera partner at The Hive. The Hive is a a creative production studio that specializes in Motion Comics New Media and film post production based out of Hollywood California. The newly formed Amazon Studios is looking to make commercial motion pictures based on scripts and movies submitted by budding screenwriters and filmmakers.
