Wells College will host a talk by the Brooklyn-based writer and director Chase Palmer at 7 p.m. Wednesday, September 20, in the de Witt Lecture Hall (106) of Zabriskie Hall on the Wells College campus. This event is free and the public is welcome.

Chase Palmer's award-winning short films "Neo-Noir" and "Shock and Awe" have played at film festivals worldwide, including Sundance, the BFI London Film Festival and the L.A. Film Festival. He co-wrote the screenplay for the recently-released adaptation of Stephen King's "It" early in the project's production.

Other current projects include writing/directing the psychological horror film "Black Lung," which was executive produced by filmmaker Cary Fukunaga; adapting the New York Times series "The Outlaw Ocean" for Netflix films and Appian Way; the bio-hacker drama series "Biopunk" starring Zachary Quinto; and the Hitchcockian fantasia "Number Thirteen," about young Alfred Hitchcock's lost first film.

Palmer's past projects include adapting Frank Herbert's sci-fi masterpiece "Dune"; the New York Times best-seller "The Search for Wondla" by acclaimed children's author Tony Diterlizzi; "Evolution's Captain," a film about Charles Darwin; and the Civil War heist movie "No Blood, No Guts, No Glory" for producer Kevin Misher, which was on Franklin Leonard's 2009 "Black List" of best unproduced screenplays.

This event is presented by the Film and Media Studies Program and co-sponsored by the English Department.
