Incidentally: ABT will be screened at the second annual Grindhouse Planet Film Festival.
The official site for Vamporama Films is now live. Check it out for the latest news and etc!
Incidentally, today is my birthday. Don’t ask.
Last night, we had our cast & crew screening for All Bad Things, plus the two Club Vamporama shorts “Who Is Bette Noir?” and “Hail Cthulhu!”, plus we screened some early footage for the Terror at Bell’s End trailer.
We drafted in our good friend & talented author/performer, Jasper Bark, to MC the proceedings, which was held at the Victoria, Birmingham city centre. I think overall the night went very well and we had most of the cast & crew from our various projects there (although we dearly missed Dru and Lizzie, who couldn’t make it).
The evening kicked off with the superb local actor, William Hayes (with whom we are planning to work very soon), giving a stirring rendition of Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Tell-Tale Heart”.
After the screening of “Who Is Bette Noir?”, Jasper interviewed Jude herself, Melyza Fay.
Following the main event, All Bad Things, Jasper quizzed the main cast—Demelza O’Sullivan, Liam Woon and Sham Zaman.
To complete the evening, Jasper himself performed his infamous short story, “Taking the Piss”!
The final bits of shooting & full editing on All Bad Things has just been completed, and only a shade before midnight, ahead of the cast & crew screening (which is actually later tonight).
This involved filming a bit of last-minute gore FX which featured my arm! More on the screening soon.
We went up to Manchester yesterday to attend the 28th FFF… Mr Steve Green was enlisted to interview both Jenny Hanley and Jonathan Rigby on stage, and we later filmed short interviews with both in the bar, which will be available on YouTube quite soon. Below are shots of Steve with his two interview subjects.
(I’m afraid there was no-one available who was actually shorter than Steve.)
Followup to this post. Here are a couple of photos from the Friday, October 20th shoot… for both shoots, the interiors were done at the house of Blake Woodham… Blake & Family patiently allowed us to makeover two separate rooms 1986 style—for which we offer profuse thanks & appreciation.
Here’s Melyza Fay with Sham Zaman, in our faux 1980s Psych consultation office…
And here’s a group pic post-shoot, featuring Steve, Sham, Me and Melyza. This came out a lot more weird & sinister-looking than anyone intended, but what the hey.
Here are a few frame grabs from the unedited, ungraded footage from Wednesday’s Terror at Bell’s End shoot, featuring Steve Green and Melyza Fay.
Yesterday, we shot the first scenes for our faux grindhouse trailer, Terror at Bell’s End. We’re shooting more tomorrow (Friday), with hopefully the last scenes being completed on Sunday. Here’s a couple of on-location shots, featuring star Melyza Fay with co-stars Steve Green and John Messer…
(And yes, this is set in the 1980s.)
New interview where All Bad Things star Demelza O’Sullivan discusses her role in our short film, plus acting in general!
(With apologies for radio silence. Much more stuff shortly.)
