In the summer of 2014, a small group of optimists gathered at an historic mansion among the orange groves and gas stations of central Florida. They were led by this man, Craig Bowers, a.k.a. Colonel Nigel Pennington.
They wanted to make a movie – a trans-dimensional steampunk adventure called A Tale of Shadows. They didn’t make a movie. I, Brian Downes, was one of their writers, and one of their actors. This video is what remains of their story.
