“Who Is Bette Noir?” Teaser

Another taster of our first short Club Vamporama film, “Who Is Bette Noir?”

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), plus a very short video clip tease! (Apologies for background noise in video; it’s pre-edited footage.) Photography & camera, etc, by me. More on this very soon too…

We’ve uploaded some quick snippets from the recent CV shoots (such as this) on YouTube. Feedback more than welcome. 🙂



Club Vamporama Shoot #3

The third CV shoot was yesterday (following the ones with Dru and Melyza), and was a chance to work with Lizzie Hastings as Marie.

Things went great, and work is in progress on the complete promo video now, a rough cut of which I made last night. More soon; meanwhile, a character photo and a frame grab featuring Lizzie acting with Steve.

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!!
