Flint Dille

Flint Dille
Writer, Ground Zero Productions

Flint Dille is the living embodiment of what is now called Transmedia. His career started by turning toys into TV Shows with G1 Transformers, G.I. Joe, Inhumanoids and Visionaries. He has designed games with Gary Gygax and written movies for Steven Spielberg. Written the Agent 13 novels, which are now in development as movies. Has twice sold game design documents as feature films (Venom: Dimension 2006) and Agent In Place (Lionsgate 2010). He created the ‘Comics Module’ for TSR, which was a comic book that contained both roleplaying and tabletop gaming content way before Transmedia was fashionable. Directed the Interactive Movie Terror T.R.A.X., Track of the Vampyre which became a television pilot for Fox as well as Dragonstrike, one of the first hybrid film projects.

Flint has also become a Transmedia object himself. His friend, Frank Miller immortalized him as Dillios (a Spartan-ization of Dille), the narrator in 300. Gary Gygax created a Barbarian named ‘Chert’ (in geology a low grade of flint), based on Flint. And nobody knows whether Flint from G.I. Joe was created after Flint, but Mr. Dille certainly did everything in his power to elevate the Warrant Officer’s career.

Flint has twice won ‘Game Script of the Year’ (Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay (with JZP) and Dead to Rights and was nominated for awards in 2010 for Ghostbusters and Dark Athena. He has worked on numerous crown jewel franchises including Transformers (writer on Transformers: The Movie), G.I. Joe, James Bond, Mission: Impossible, Tiny Toons, Batman: Rise of Sin Tsu (in Guiness Book of Videogame Records for having created the first Batman villain outside of the comics) and also adapted as a novel (read it and see if you think it influenced Batman Begins), Superman, Dungeons & Dragons, American Tail, Teen Titans, Scooby-Doo Unmasked is alwo being adapted as a direct to DVD video. Some of this might come about genetically as Flint is the grandson of the originator of Buck Rogers.
