CHRISTIAN GOSSETT (Writer/Director)

Gossett brings a unique blend of writing and design experience to Farewell My King. He was one of the first designers hired by Lucasfilm Licensing to retro- design the Star Wars galaxy in 1993. Gossett was only 23 years old when his radical concept drawing of a 'double-bladed lightsaber' was presented to George Lucas. George's approval memo hangs in a frame on the wall of Gossett's studio. Seven years later, this design would be made famous as Darth Maul's signature weapon in The Phantom Menace.

Bringing this same unique talent to bear when designing characters and weapons for the film and videogame industry, Gossett's character and concept designs have been sought by such visionaries as Sir Richard Taylor, Peter Jackson, and Tim Burton's new adventures of Disney's Alice in Wonderland'.

His videogame career began at Activision on the PSX. Since then, he has designed for Sega, Namco, Microsoft and others. His most recent game work will be seen on an upcoming release of Activision's flagship franchise Call of Duty. Gossett's ongoing project, The Red Star, having successfully launched as a PS2 / PS3 game, is now in development as a feature film at Warner Brothers. The Red Star has sold over a million units worldwide, was voted among the Top 100 graphic novels of all time by Wizard magazine, and is one of the most critically acclaimed independent comics' series of the decade.

Christian's graphic novel background informs his approach to filmmaking in every way, resulting in a distinctly original voice. For more detailed information, please visit www.christiangossett.com.
