Colby Day is a filmmaker and playwright whose works include Giant Killer Slugs! and In the Blink of an Eye, which was featured on The Black List 2016. He was hired off that to adapt the science fiction novel Children of Time for Lionsgate, and recently also adapted the novel Spaceman of Bohemia for Free Association. He is currently developing projects about black holes, ghosts, and the future of the human mind.

Colby tells stories about space, spiders, magic, monsters, love, loss, and time. Often his stories will break your heart, but they will without fail also offer to help you pick up the pieces and glue them back together again.

He is interested in whatever weird ideas you’d like to throw at him. The stranger, more magical, and far out the better. His specialty is playing in big sandboxes with big ideas and telling grounded human stories based in fundamental emotional truths.
