Well, Triangle is the provisional title, at least… maybe we’ll keep it… anyhow, I finished the first draft of the script last night, small extract below. The film, which should run about 20 minutes, is a neo-noir set in Birmingham and we’re gonna do it in glorious black & white!! It’s quite hard-boiled and the ‘second act’ is more than a little Sin City in tone.*
A Deal With Death is a short film that homages the old Amicus anthology flicks. I posted a character sketch for it some months ago.
Here’s a page from the script.
The finished film is basically a monologue—performed brilliantly by Liam Woon!—but originally we were going to add some filmed inserts. Here we have my storyboards for four of of those inserts.
So… I’ve been playing with the footage for Monsters, and I’ve done some tests on the colour grading. The raw footage has a very flat colour profile, which allows filmmakers to push the images to suit the mood or preference more comfortably. Below are two graded frame grabs and finally a look at the raw (unmatted) footage for comparison.
Yesterday, we had our rehearsal for the aforementioned Monsters short, with Liam Woon playing the role of “The Man”. The final run-through was filmed and I played around with the image & sound a little bit. The shooting proper will take place later this month. Meanwhile, here’s a couple of pics, plus a shot of Liam with Steve…
See the Bell’s End tag for more! This is our faux grindhouse trailer, homaging Euro Cult and the likes of Lucio Fulci. Of course, if any backers or companies showed an interest, we’d definitely be up for making a full movie!!
Here’s a couple of frame grabs; firstly, from a titles sequence I’ve recently been playing with… secondly, good old Melyza Fay being stalked by THE KILLER…
Yesterday (Nov 27), All Bad Things was screened at the 2017 Grindhouse Planet Film Festival, in Leicester. This was the first public screening following the cast & crew screening last month. So let’s have a couple of photos…
This one was taken during the actual screening.
And here we have producer Steve Green with festival organiser Marc Hamill (no, not that one).
