Journal BankofAmerica_ATM's Journal: Man in the Red Hat story coming in September 8

Hello everyone! After my little vacation, I will be publishing a companion story to I am ATM about Constantine Atkins, the Man in the Red Hat.

I am also working on a screenplay version of I am ATM, but I'm having a little trouble deciding whether the ATM or the host geek should be the main character. What do you guys think?

Man in the Red Hat story coming in September

  • ATM is the main character, but I'm not sure how the internal conversation will carry over to the screen. If you can figure this out, stick with ATM as main character. If not, you may as well go with the host geek.

  • I think use the ATM as the main character. If you go with the host geek, it would be hard to convince people that it isn't "just another alien/demon/wizard taking over someone's body" story. And the host geek is what everyone would expect. I like the unexpected. Keep up the good work!
    • Yr user bio [slashdot.org] would make a sweet opening for the screenplay.
      • I can't think how the story would be interesting if it's told from the host geek's point. Seems that the audience likes the point of view of the ATM who takes its first steps in the human world.. uses cigarettes in the wrong way (not that there's a right way to use cigarettes) and learns how attraction feels like.

        The vacation was hard for all of us. I can't wait to read more sci-fi material from you. :)

"One Architecture, One OS" also translates as "One Egg, One Basket".
