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.
