Why we want your feedback...

It has come to our attention that several of you might be wondering why we are taking this route in the making of Autumn. We feel that fan-bases are an enormously positive element of public involvement that can keep important fields of art, music, literature, film and television alive and thriving. Now with a billion people on the internet, this could be the dawn of a new era of fan involvement in the arts.

Our Director, Steven Rumbelow, who is adapting this story for the screen and has adapted some of the world's finest authors for performance, talks about how he thinks fan based work may change the future of film as utilizing the internet for this purpose progresses. He has often observed instances in entertainment where the fans have made a huge impact, for example, how the future of Dr. Who was unknowingly saved by it’s Australian fans in the 1960s.

Steven asked for this survey to be set up in order to get feedback from fans. "It’s a Renegade kinda thing to do things differently and we are looking to get feedback before we make the film. I don't think that this could be achieved with just any fan base but I've looked at the David Moody blog and because of the nature of the Autumn books, I see the fans as being a small but enormously positive force that could become instrumental in the success of the production. Of course, we should add that we've already answered the questions we are asking you, but if this survey changes even one of our answers it was totally worth it."

So this is your chance to have some input in the shape of the film adaptation of one of your favorite post-apocalyptic works.

This is perhaps the most exciting news I've heard in awhile. Zombie movies are so rare nowdays--and when they're produced--they're presented improperly. Even George Romero lost sight of what a post apocalyptic world really means. I look forward to a well organized, cerebral and fascinating view into the human condition--our most complicated feature.

I have read the three main Autumn books, and right now am working my way through Autumn: the Human Condition. The thing I love most about the books is that Moody never tells you how it happened. I know that towards the end of Purification an idea is mentioned but there was never a confirmation as to haw it happen. While I loved all the books, the fact that you never have more information then the people in the books makes them so much better than any others I have read.

i read the autumn books ages ago, i think one of the most important factors of its success is the reality of the background.
For me , the interest isnt so much the zombie thing, its the way we would have to deal with reality of being alone, truly alone, the relief of finding others, of how the modern barriers break down, we are a spoiled generation and to cope with the true hardships that this breakdown would create. The zombie background creates the relentless need to survive, and again, the relentless enemy, constently at your door, never letting up, uncontrolable, and all so needless, the despair, here lies for me a great story. Autumn has these elements....its not blood and guts that generate this, its losing control
