Terror At Bell’s End News

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

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.

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”!

Terror At Bell’s End Shoot #2

Followup to this post. Here are a couple of photos from the Friday, October 20th shoot… for both shoots, the interiors were done at the house of Blake Woodham… Blake & Family patiently allowed us to makeover two separate rooms 1986 style—for which we offer profuse thanks & appreciation.

Here’s Melyza Fay with Sham Zaman, in our faux 1980s Psych consultation office…

And here’s a group pic post-shoot, featuring Steve, Sham, Me and Melyza. This came out a lot more weird & sinister-looking than anyone intended, but what the hey.

Terror At Bell’s End Shoot #1

Yesterday, we shot the first scenes for our faux grindhouse trailer, Terror at Bell’s End. We’re shooting more tomorrow (Friday), with hopefully the last scenes being completed on Sunday. Here’s a couple of on-location shots, featuring star Melyza Fay with co-stars Steve Green and John Messer…

(And yes, this is set in the 1980s.)

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!!

Club Vamporama Printed Poster

So we collected an A1 size printed version of the lovely, if I do say so myself, Club Vamporama poster (as seen here) yesterday… it’s now ready in a frame for Sunday’s shoot with Melyza Fay, who will be playing Jude, Bette Noir’s PA and confidante. Voila!
