PRLog - Jan. 22, 2014 - PORTLAND, Ore. -- Jason Satterlund, veteran Director and Co-Writer of the Steampunk series The Record Keeper, will appear as a celebrity guest at Wizard World Portland Comic Con on January 24-26th, 2014. Satterlund will be promoting his highly anticipated web series in hopes of using media attention to gain support for its release. The Record Keeper’s premiere, previously set for early February, has been put on hold indefinitely as the Adventist leadership, the group who funded the series, is rethinking it’s public release due to discomfort within the church relating to the topics covered in the show.
Known for creating emotional stories around controversial topics, such as current religious and political climates around the world, Satterlund has directed an epic tale about the politics of angels, giving him the opportunity to tell the story of mankind’s existence in a way that’s never been seen before on television.

“The Geekie Awards celebrates the best content, art and products in the world, and we were absolutely blown away by the quality and emotional impact of The Record Keeper,” said Kristen Nedopak, Executive Producer and Creator of The Geekie Awards. “It was one of the highest scored entries in our entire show. It would be a shame if the series was never released, not only for the creators who have worked so hard on this project, but for the fans who have seen the screenings and appreciate the bold way in which these stories are being told.”
The series was created by Jason Satterlund, along with executive producer Garrett Caldwell and co-writer Rajeev Sigamoney. The project was ultimately inspired by The Great Controversy, a religious history book published by Pacific Press, a Seventh-Day Adventist owned publishing house. The book is an in-depth look at the spread of Christianity since the time of Christ, andThe Record Keeper covers many its themes.
