Mike Sizemore on the set of MERICA ADAMS (2014) by Christian Payne

My name is Mike Sizemore.

I write stuff.

I created a TV show that almost got made. You can see the trailer for Slingers with Tom Mison (Sleepy Hollow) and Sean Pertwee (Dog Soldiers, Gotham) along with a comic book version here.

I adapted Howl’s Moving Castle for the London stage. People seemed to dig it and there’s a trailer here.

I came up with an idea about superheroes who pull a heist to pay the rent that I then co-created as Caper for Felicia Day‘s Geek and Sundry channel with Amy Berg.

Originally airing on YouTube and Hulu, Caper stars Abby Miller (Justified), Beth Riesgraf (Leverage), Hartley Sawyer (Glory Daze), Harry Shum Jr. (Glee) and a bunch of other people you’ll recognise from some of your favourite shows. You can watch the whole shebang here.

Also finished the first block of shooting on a follow-up to 2011’s Precision called Merica Adams. As well as writing this I’m also co-directing. Exciting times. For me anyway. For you guys it could be rather worrying. Updates here.

I had a short story published in the sci-fi anthology War Stories. It has work by Joe Haldeman and a bunch of other great writers in there too. I enjoyed writing the characters enough that I’m working on more stories set in the same world which at some point I’ll collect here as The Last of the Independents.

There’s a bunch of other film, TV and comic stuff on the way* and if I’d started writing a novel this year I’d tell you here too, right? Other bits and pieces you’ll find in the sidebar.

I use Twitter more than anything, but also have a Tumblr.

The Website

The sidebar image on the blog is by Dave Kennedy. Dave also did all the super hero design and motion comic stuff on Caper. Plus the majority of the art in the comic book stuff featured in the sidebar. Talented bastard. We’re working on a few new things together.

The photo of me on this page was taken on the set of Merica Adams by Christian Payne. If you’re not following Documentally on Twitter you’re missing out.

We can’t be friends unless you’ve seen THREE DAYS OF THE CONDOR. Sorry. Them’s the rules.

This website is, of course, maintained by my digital roadie, Nik Butler.
