Did Peter Chung write the all stories/dialog behind Aeon Flux?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Aeon Flux : One Thread

Hi, I think Aeon Flux is phenomenal and probably the most thought provoking animation I've ever seen and I was wondering if Peter Chung wrote all the episode stories, plots, dialog etc. as well as animated them. Thanks

He didn't write Chronophasia, I'm not sure about other ep's I'll have to check the tapes.

Not by a long shot. For example, 'Utopia or Deuteronopia' alone had four writers: Shari Goodhartz, Japhet Asher, Peter Gaffney, and Mark Mars.

I'm pretty sure he wrote and directed all of the shorts. As for the third season, um, I think he was responsible for maybe 40%. But that's a pretty rough estimate.

As far as I know, AF had nine different writers: Peter Chung (of course), Mark Mars, Eric Singer, Todd French, Japhet Asher, Peter Gaffney, Shari Goodhartz, John Brancato and Steve DeJarnatt. Mark co-wrote "Thanatophobia", Eric co-wrote "A Last Time For Everything, Todd wrote "Ether Drift Theory" (and some of Beavis & Butthead if I`m not mistaken), Japhet and Peter wrote some good episodes like "End Sinister", Shari worked on "U or D", and John & Steve worked on "Reraizure". Hope that clears things up a little!

Actually, I was wrong about one thing. John Brancato and Steve DeJarnatt worked on "Demiurge" with Michael Ferris and Peter Chung, not "Reraizure" as I previously reported. And the story for "Chronophasia" was co-written by J. Garett Sheldrew. However, I know for a fact that these are all the writers Aeon Flux has. Or is this old news by now?
