Director Kyle Roberts is taking his movie to Comic-Con.

“The Posthuman Project” is a teen superhero film created in Oklahoma. Roberts, also a NewsOK videographer, was the director, editor and VFX supervisor.  It was written by me (Matt Price) and former “Supergirl” writer Sterling Gates; the film stars Kyle Whalen, Collin Place, Lindsay Sawyer, Josh Bonzie, Alex Harris, Rett Terrell and Jason Leyva.

As someone who is usually on the other side of the news, reporting on cool things other people are doing, it’s been a whirlwind to see all the press and attention our film has gotten since being named “Best Oklahoma Film” at deadCenter in Oklahoma City a month ago.

This week, the film was reviewed by Ain’t It Cool News and featured by Newsarama and the Los Angeles Times.  In addition, the comic-book prequel, which is for sale at screenings and some local comic shops, is now also available at Amazon.  The prequel comic was written by Gates and myself, and drawn by Oklahoma comic-book artist Mario Wytch.

Gates, Roberts, Bonzie, Terrell and Place are joining producers Wendy Parker and Sha’ree Green in San Diego for a screening and Q&A as part of the Independent Film Festival at Comic-Con International.

Fans can see the film at Comic-Con for free at 11:35 a.m. Saturday at the Marriott Marquis & Marina.  Fans in Oklahoma will have chances to see the film again soon as well: the film will be screened as part of FLY Film Festival in Enid and the Red Dirt International Film Festival in Stillwater.

More info on the film is available at the web site and Facebook page.  Thanks to everyone who has checked it out so far!
