Club Vamporama News

You can follow the Club Vamporama tag for more on this project. The newest news is that we’re planning a crowdfunder for a full, 30-minute pilot episode. Liz wrote the script ages ago, and completed a new draft of it quite recently; most of the main cast are in place, all being well; currently, the theme song is being worked on… we’re looking to recruit a couple of ‘name value’ cast members and get things on track very, very soon.

Club Vamporama Shoot #4

Firstly, apologies for radio silence. Secondly, All Bad Things news: the shoot will now take place on August 20th. A couple of people dropped out at last minute and we’re currently looking for someone to handle the sound tech. More VERY soon!

Anyhow. Yesterday was the fourth shoot for Club Vamporama, this time uniting Dru and Lizzie (for the first time, as they appear to just miss each other in previous item, even though their scenes were shot five weeks apart!) for a scene set indoors—the so-called “Cthulhu Sketch”, which we previously did an abortive screen test on some months ago—plus a title sequence shot outdoors (storyboards for which I shall be posting tonight or tomorrow).

So, here are a couple of promo shots of Jenni (Dru) and Marie (Lizzie)! Photography by me. More on this very soon too…

Club Vamporama Shoot #2

It’s taken a month to get here (from there), but it was worth the wait!

The Sunday shoot was with Melyza Fay playing Jude, Bette Noir’s assistant, as mentioned previously. We filmed the scene at Route 44, part of the superb Inn on the Green, standing in very nicely for Club Vamp itself.

Melyza was terrific, and very helpful to Steve, who doesn’t consider himself an actor per se, even if playing himself (or a version thereof). He had a lot of lines to work with and M gave him some great pointers.

We shoot the final part of this little item with Elizabeth Hastings playing the part of Marie this coming Friday.

Meanwhile, here’s a character shot of Jude and an on-set snap. More soon!!
