hello world. my name is Ryan Alexander Boyles. often, it's pronounced the RAB. i'm into declarative living. i am a connector. this is my life-stream / tumblr / blog. call it what you will. find my sxsw posts. any questions, ask me anything! btw, here is a standard disclaimer.
Ryan and I had the opportunity to talk with Sean Crouch about his experience writing for Helix, his take on the several recent episodes, and much more.
Sean wrote the episodes “Survivor Zero” and “Level X” and was a contributing writer on other episodes as well. His knack for storytelling has paid of hugely in those terrific episodes. We enjoyed hearing Sean talk about his experiences in the writers room and developing the storyline that would be brought to the screen.
Warning: Spoilers Ahead! – The interview features plot points from Helix episodes 7 (Survivor Zero) and 9 (Level X), so please watch those episodes before listening to the interview or reading further!
Sean was incredibly generous in sharing some of his down time with us. The interview was informative and fun. It’s full of great insight into the creative talents that bring Helix to the screen. Listen in as he answers some of our burning questions:
- Constance and Hatake don’t age and both have silver eyes. They obviously have a long past relationship both professional and personal. Anything you can tell us about Werewolf, Alien DNA or Mutant theories?
- The scene with Peter emerging as “King Vector” was epic. Did you know as you wrote it that it would emerge as such a pivotal scene?
- Is there a direction the writing team is going for? is there a framework of boundaries the world that they have to work in?
- Survivor Zero and Level X were both heavy on reveals in terms of the plot. What reveal did you enjoy most enjoy writing?
And much, much more…
We’d like to once again extend a huge thanks to Sean for spending some time to chat with us an evening this week. Be sure to follow him on Twitter @Seanecrouch. We’d love to talk to Sean again in the future to talk more about Helix and to find out what he is up to!
Fun interview this week, nice dude.
