Synopsis

James Harrison awakes in a small hospital bed. He is disoriented, confused.
Where is he?
How did he get there?
How much time has passed?
An old lady enters his room, points a bony finger his way and rasps, “I know what you did to Timothy Brown”.
And she is gone…
This is his reintroduction to life after a cracked skull and a coma. His most recent past is now a mystery.
Perceiving that his brain needs a chance to organize life’s events back in order, his doctor gives him an assignment fit only for an author: to write the story of the last six months of his life.

This journey leads James down a peculiar and awe-inspiring path: The death of his mother, his escape from hometown problems, and a chance encounter with an alluring young woman whose mesmerizing voice and personality captures his heart entirely.  As he writes, the solution to the riddle of his current situation is slowly uncovered.

We are invited into this puzzle with him.

What would happen if you woke up and were suddenly living the consequences of decisions you don’t remember making…the world around you has changed but you have stood still?

Who are these unknown accusers?

What really put him in the hospital?

Does this beautiful young singer truly exist?

Did he actually do something sinister to Timothy Brown?

Will he discern order or chaos?

Will he find an Author?

The Author is a labor of love, carefully crafted over a decade, produced with a specific purpose.  The viewer is invited to enter into the story and engage with some of life’s most puzzling questions.

C.S. Lewis summarized my philosophy of storytelling well in Aslan’s statement in Narnia’s The Voyage of the Dawn Treader  where he says:

“This was the very reason why you were brought to Narnia, that by knowing me here for a little, you may know me better (in your world).”

The world of this film is a space for people to encounter the Author of life’s events.  As the lights come up, the viewer exits back into the real world, with the author from the film calling to them to evaluate the events and circumstances of their own life.

Do they see a story?  Do they see an Author at work?

The Author is set throughout the south and midwest parts of the United States requiring a location that can realistically portray these differing places.  Thankfully, the state of Texas offers a great variety of scenery and interesting spots to meet this demand.  The Author  will be filmed in the North Houston area.
