COMIC-CON 2006: Richard Kelly's ‘Southland Tales’

Then he introduced his producing partner, Sean McKitrick, who never spoke a word. It was sort of surreal, the feeling in the room. Especially when Kelly introduced the rest of the speaking panel as a Improve group known as The MECHANICALS. I wasn't sure this was for real, as he stood there and told us how they were a huge part of the film. Each member had been given an important role to play.

There are three graphic novels that lead into the story told within Southland Tales the Movie. But Kelly is a procrastinator. He has slowly been getting the script pages to the editor of the comic. It has been a decidedly slow process. There are 6 chapters to the Tale as a whole. The first three chapters are told in these novels. The rest are what make up the film. Kelly described it as a new experience for film goers. A type of mixed media. He claims that it has added many layers to the story at hand.
