Chattanooga is proud of its local talent, and Rocky Perry is one such gem. The author, currently working on the fifth book of a series he began in 2009, is hoping to adapt the story of “Luke Banderloft and the McFarven Pirates” into an episodic web series featuring a Chattanooga cast and crew.
The mythological story of Luke Banderloft, an unlucky and outcast elf, was inspired by Perry’s struggle with dyslexia. Previously a painter, his disability kept him from writing down his stories until speech-to-text software emerged, allowing him to write more easily. With the release this past June of the fourth book in his planned ten-book series, “Luke Banderloft and the War Orphan’s Army”, Perry’s story of Banderloft is in full swing.
Perry has teamed up with Trey Cook of Cook Box Productions to complete the web series, starting a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the project. The campaign goal is to raise $15,000 by March 1 for filming and production, and those who donate receive a variety of rewards, from a personal tweet to producer credits or a chance to appear in the series.
