Many people live their lives thinking that someday there will be a reckoning; a time to account for everything ever said or done. If you’ve been good, you get to go to where the good people go and if you’ve been bad, you can go to hell. Unless you are among a very select fictional few —like Jane Bingum from Drop Dead Diva—you don’t get another chance.

In Noland Bryand’s latest work, In Between, afterlife determinations turn out to be much more complex. Omni Potent has been tasked with the difficult job of finding a place for this assortment of souls. His waiting room often looks like a gathering at the Mos Eisley Cantina in Star Wars: Wickenites, beings from Black Eye Galaxy and the planets Cog, Klaken and Klax. Having to meet with so many clients who speak so many different languages and carry such long resumes sure makes staffing complicated: it would be so much easier if Jesus hadn’t hacked the system and if people could just die and then go to heaven…or hell.

Dead golfer Wilfred makes Omni’s job that much worse.

Wilfred closes the door behind him.

OMNI POTENT, a ball of majestic light, hovers over a large, sturdy desk.

A large screen on the wall behind the desk.

Take a seat.

A chair slides up behind Wilfred. He sits down.

Finding a D class job for this man who completely messed things up on his last assignment is going to be a real drag. There is no way that Omni’ll be able to place him somewhere on Earth, despite Wilfred’s whining that special favor is in order for guys like him.

In Between combines the best of dramatic storytelling with its crazily creative construction of an alternate universe, with beings submerged in out-of-this-world circumstances. You won’t want to miss the chance to bring this one to life!

Budget: Moderate. Some minor special effect work needed, such as hovering blobs of light…

The Writer: Nolan Bryand

I've been interested in movies for as long as I can remember. While in university, I enrolled in film studies and took a particular interest in script writing. The idea of creating a story from a small thought in my head really appealed to me. I know the directors and actors are the ones who really make it big in films, but it's the writer who has the responsibility of really making a story come to life in order for the other two to strut their stuff! That spoke to me. Out of everything in film, it all starts with an idea, which blossoms into a story. That's what I wanted to do, I wanted to be the guy who got his story on paper. Over the past year, I've started writing... Go to bio
