I thought it was time to cobble together some kind of showreel… this covers various filmed work done since 2016, headed obviously by the current efforts on Birmingham Now. Feedback is welcome!
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.
(As a matter of fact, I’ve even toyed with doing it in an old-style 4.3 aspect ratio. What I think we’ll ultimately do here is shoot it safe for both 4.3 and 1.85, so it can be comfortably shown either way.)
More soon, and there’s a project page over at Vamporama Films too, which will be added to in due course…
