Aaand… here’s the second of our Manchester interviews, also being the third in our “In Conversation With” series. More coming in the new year.

Grindhouse Planet Film Festival Screening

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.

Finally, here’s a detailed report from the Midlands Movies Website: Midlands Movies Grindhouse Festival Report.

In Conversation With… Jenny Hanley

As promised earlier, here’s the first of our Manchester interviews. It’s also the second in our “In Conversation With” series. Stay tuned for more!

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.

ABT Screening 2

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”!

All Bad Things: It’s A Wrap

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.

Festival of Fantastic Films 2018

We went up to Manchester yesterday to attend the 28th FFF… Mr Steve Green was enlisted to interview both Jenny Hanley and Jonathan Rigby on stage, and we later filmed short interviews with both in the bar, which will be available on YouTube quite soon. Below are shots of Steve with his two interview subjects.

(I’m afraid there was no-one available who was actually shorter than Steve.)

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…

Bells End B1

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.)
