By summer 2001,
the 'Monkey' script had moved on from ideas of being shot digitally
in Ireland and the Super 8 mm and, by then, Hi8 video material,
had been used to shape other work - projections, posters and fliers.
Gavin and I had developed the script more
commercially, to a feature film level, and it was now being represented
to larger studios by Steve Kenis and Co. in London ( formerly of
the William Morris Agency ).
Inspired by this turn of events I put any
further plans to make more videos or other visual work on the shelf
and kept writing. Between 2001 and 2002 three scripts developed.
This is the point at which The Seventh Earth
'map' properly begins to emerge.
