Columbus, Ohio native, Todd Christian, is an author, publisher, screenwriter, creator, producer. Awarded All-Conference basketball in high school, and with a 42-inch vertical, Christian had his sights set on the NBA most of his life. It was in college that he started bartending, modeling for print, runway, and fitness.
In his second year of college, Christian won a Massimo Modeling search which propelled him into working with major fashion houses such as Tommy Hilfiger. Christian then decided to give professional modeling a shot. Due to his decision, basketball did not continue, but it sculpted his physique and cultivated him to develop his work ethic to the highest degree.
For a change in weather, new adventures and opportunities (and with a head full of ideas), he moved to Los Angeles on New Year’s Day 2006. Since then he’s been self-taught in many disciplines, including production, graphic design, website coding, video editing, post-production, writing, editing, and photography.
In 2011, Christian created Grandscope Entertainment, which produces sponsorship videos, commercial advertisements, and website design. He also became proficient in script coverage. With this expertise, he selected two scripts in which to place his time, and as a result is in pre-production as a co-producer on two big-budget feature films.
Christian began to create his own superhero role after being told by executives at the company behind Man of Steel that, “Maybe we should have screen-tested you for Superman.”
Initially a movie script which took a year to write, Christian transformed the property into Element X, the comic. Utilizing Live Action Comics, an innovative and ground-breaking genre for modern comics created by Christian, Element X released its inaugural issue in 2014.
ELEMENT X is the debut superhero from Live Action Comics that implements a new innovative comic process called “Live Action.” This process utilizes feature film aspects, such as actors on-location, props, makeup, and wardrobe; an advanced level of photographs are then shot, edited, and used for illustrations, creating an epic graphic experience.
