All Bad Things: Cast & Crew Screening

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”!

All Bad Things On Location

Principal Photography for the indie short All Bad Things was held yesterday, at the Rajnagar, Olton, and everything went really well… plus, we wrapped well ahead of time! We still have two further (small) blocks of filming to do in the next week or two, but the biggest part is in the can and, IMO, looking real nice!!

Here are a couple of on-set photos (during the run-through before actual filming), and a big shot of the cast & crew assembled.

All Bad Things Storyboards

As we shoot the bulk of our short indie film, All Bad Things, this coming weekend… as mentioned here, here and here… I thought a few storyboards might be interesting.

(Obviously, these boards aren’t meant to be pretty illos, but rather, rough & ready guides to assist the shoot.)
