“Neil Enock’s Mayan: Atlantis Returns (The Millennium Series Book 1) has a wonderful gift here for the mythological scavenger who is more than intrigued about Atlantis. The year is 2025; the world has not ended in 2012. A plane crashes. The survivors are rescued and taken to an island that should in no way be real. This island is Atlantis and…

Contemplating Mayhem: A Tour of Calgary’s New Film Studio

Ron Devitt, Wayne Bradford, Gerrick Winston, Neil Enock

I was fortunate indeed to find myself on a tour of Calgary’s new Film Studio yesterday, with Ron Devitt, Wayne Bradford, Gerrick Winston & Neil Enock.

IMG_8371Studio boss Erin O’Connor showed a stalwart group of local Independent filmmakers through the facility and Sean from William White also gave us a run-down on their new digs.

(Proper tours are being planned – stay tuned, I’ll pass it on when they are available)

Happy Canada Day & Independence Day: A Gift


Canada Day is July 1st, and US Independence Day is July 4.

I snapped this picture of the fireworks from my deck on July 1st. A tremendous display and a lucky shot have caused a few people ask if they can use the image as their desktop picture.

I see so many possibilities in this shot. I see it as the cover of a book or the poster for a movie, or perhaps simply reflecting on the awesome power of one thing to become the Vizard of another.

Anyway, I hope you like it…

A Vision of Atlantis Comes to Life!

This week’s post on Designing Atlantis!

Still in Tulum and back at the hotel, we continued to do all the usual things people do at an all-inclusive resort. Pool time, activities, lots of eating!

Like others we had seen, he had the usual display of his wares around him, what caught my eye was some of the original works that he had on display, alongside the ‘usual’ Chichen Itza in the moonlight paintings….

Mayan… Emerges from Under the Ruins of Tulum

While on holiday in Mexico, a fantastic tale of the Mayan civilization and the lost city of Atlantis popped into my head.

Exactly one year later, my family and I visit the Mayan ruins in Tulum. After a thorough tour, I have a strange feeling in the pit of my stomach, so we leave the tour and find a deserted spot to rest…

A Note – The video itself is exactly as it was recorded, completely by chance, in Tulum.


Now, if I was to continue the tale as it was supposed to be told…

So we toured…

First, A Quick Trip Back In Time

From the ‘Designing Atlantis’ Blog…


The story sat occupying space on my shelf and in my brain until the next year, I was busy with my other businesses and doing quite a bit more work on the AMC show ‘Hell on Wheels’.

I was learning a ton about how film and television productions were made and was using that experience to to think about how my story could be made…

Designing Atlantis


The book is called Mayan and it will be the first book in the Millennia series.  The blog, detailing how this epic tale is coming to life is quite aptly named Designing Atlantis.

The story has been brewing for more than 6000 years. You’ll just have to be patient a little bit longer…
