Project 'Hello, Professor' follows the 're-development' and backstory of the most intelligent living mortal creature to ever exist, resuming his life on earth after a harrowing past. A legend on this planet for his skills, he has taken a 'very' long break off teaching after an unknown event during a class. The hooded figure of death stands nearby, ready to take his mind and body for its own.
This project focuses on a future character, critical to Project Portal and is considered the 'hero' team within it. His genius yet frailty and mortality makes him an almost relatable character, though using his research and persistence in experiments to sway him away from his past and regrets.
Project 'Hello, Professor' is intended to be pitched for TV but may be released onto YouTube or a streaming service if needs be.
I am a post Drama student, working on making 2 separate projects (Project Red/Project Portal) I've been working on for the last 6 years a reality. Work on 'Project Red' has already started with a team of writers working on the direction towards Season 2).
As the project is in its very early stages, all roles are voluntary until funding is secured.
Project 'Hello, Professor' takes a step out (shares the same universe) and focuses on 1 character over a large collective. A keen interest in science and in depth analysis of a single character is key, along with a number of other interests.
The professor is treated as a genius with a never specified age, hinting at any time from 2,000 years to over 1 million. During this time, he has insanely perfected his knowledge in every form of science, geography, astronomy, language, engineering, culture, etc. for all his life.
Pushing the lines of physics, technology and reality to the extremes as he controls it all, the Professor is an impossible yet one of the most pained characters intended for the screen.
