18 - The Dragon VII

 

 

At this stage I was absorbed purely in the material itself, without much thought of how to realise it, except to occasionally write a synopsis or treatment. The agent representing the first script and the original low budget plan had kind of just settled in the background and I went with the flow of the work itself - writing into a deeper and deeper cave. I was becoming truly obsessed by the 'White Monkey' world I was creating. I was becoming my own 'Dream King'.

I had created a story spanning hundreds of years, combining and blurring the line between Ancient Asia and Ancient America - a story whose main characters trace a path of a steady cultural gradation around the Pacific Ocean.

The 'Seventh Earth' map was beginning to clarify itself, step by step, through these people and their story, and the cultural and ethnic gradation around the Ring Of Fire ( the belt of volcanic and earthquake activity surrounding the Pacific ) was starting to become apparent as a driving force in the work.
