I almost didn’t put an about page up, but might as well.

I’m Michael Sellers — Michael D. Sellers if you’re looking up film credits. I’m a producer and director and writer of independent feature films and a longtime fan of Edgar Rice Burroughs. I would give anything to be in Andrew Stanton’s shoes now, but I’m not — so he gets the 250M movie and I get this little blogsite.

Actually, this blogsite started because uninformed trolls were ripping John Carter for “ripping off” Avatar and Star Wars, when this material was the source material for those movies. I couldn’t keep my mouth shut, and so one weekend I put up the site and I’m keeping it going as a fun little project.

My “regular” blogsite is http://michaeldsellers.com, and my movie trailers are there. Waitaminute, I’ll copy paste them here.  No “John Carter” in there, but there’s some decent stuff in there, all done for a budget that is about 1/10 of 1% of JC.


As John Carter says: “We still live!”  There’s time to do more.

One thought on “About

  • Hi Michael,

    I’m writing from Simon & Schuster, and we’d love to be able to offer you a free review copy of UNDER THE MOONS OF MARS, the new anthology coming out in February compiled and edited by John Joseph Adams. The anthology contains brand-new stories and illustrations based on the world of Barsoom and the character John Carter of Mars. If you’d like a copy to be able to review for the site, please contact me directly via e-mail so I can send a book to your mailing address. Thank you very much for your enthusiasm for John Carter!

    All the best,
