Former DREAM THEATER Singer CHARLIE DOMINICI Launches Kickstarter Campaign

Progressive metal singer Charlie Dominici, formerly of DREAM THEATER, has launched a Kickstarter fundraiser campaign for the creation of the movie adaptation of the Dominici "O3" trilogy albums released in 2005, 2007 and 2008. This screenplay aims to capture the essence of Dominici's sweeping vision of humanity's past, present — and ultimately, its fate. A collaboration by Dominici himself, along with screenwriter and author David Sakmyster, and best-selling international author Steven Savile.

The current phase is to fund the completion of the screenplay, as well as some initial entries into screenplay contests and festivals, aiming to attract agents as well as production companies and other talent. If successful, the next phase will consist of further promotional materials including short trailers, movie posters and convention shows, building toward casting, funding and ultimately — production.

The story is described as follows: "A lone sleeper cell terrorist is pursued by a derelict detective until their lives become intertwined in a cat and mouse game that veers toward an incredible apocalyptic conclusion. This wild roller coaster ride of a story delves deeply into history, politics, religion, society and even extra-terrestrials. It will make you rethink our role on this planet, our entire history, why we're here, the very notion of free will — and what it means to be human."

Despite enjoying a successful career as a singer songwriter in the Sixties and Seventies, Charlie Dominici is known by many fans from his time with DREAM THEATER, with whom he recorded their debut album, "When Dream and Day Unite", in 1989. Dominici saw the successful transition of a young band called MAJESTY who became an international success. Having left the band in 1989, his artistic achievements within DREAM THEATER are undisputed to this day. Dominici received accolades from the fans when he reunited with his former bandmates for the 15th anniversary of "When Dream and Day Unite" in 2004.
