Now available for viewing: my edit of an extract from the Monsters rehearsal film, featuring Liam Woon as “The Man”. The proper shoot will be in Coventry on October 21st!
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—a YouTube link to that will follow. The shooting proper will take place later this month. Meanwhile, here’s a couple of pics, plus a shot of Liam with Steve…
Monsters is a short film project we’re working on which is currently in pre-production. IMDb entry here!
We’re still looking to firm-up a location and I’m currently storyboarding a few key elements. See first two below. There should be positive news on this one real soon…
And yep, 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!!
Anyhow, it’s been on the shelf for months and months, and we still need to shoot a couple of extra scenes. We’re working on it. It’s back on the schedule after the hiatus. More news soon.
Meanwhile, 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…
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.
