Amazing few weeks chatting with the ever wonderful and supportive Sophia French at Walsall Council, who is not only a brilliant help with the locations and planning for You Are My Sunshine, but is also an unseen hero for helping us on both Sustain and House of Screaming Death too – honestly, without this lady, we couldn’t do half the stuff and use most of the places we get for these projects.
She is quite simply stunning and I’m always just so overwhelmed to get the council’s backing and help for these projects and beyond!
Thank you Sophia for your continued kindness and faith in us!
PS – She makes for a cracking writer too! Her work is great!
An amazing new poster has been released for Paul Downey’s upcoming documentary – For The Love of The Boogeyman: 40 Years of Halloween – which i’m co-producing for him as well as editing. This is a fascinating project and it’s definitely allowing us all to channel our inner nerd and discuss our favourite Horror film of all time, ‘John Carpenter’s HALLOWEEN’ – Lots of amazing news to come as well as interviews coming in from around the world! There are some other surprises to come along the way too! But for now… here is the new poster
Lots of filming in a secret location today for inclusion within Paul Downey’s upcoming Documentary – For The Love of The Boogeyman – can you spot Michael Myers anywhere here?
The idea we had was to allow the documentary to be split into segments, with each part discussing a certain topic about the original film. However, to also give the documentary even more scope was to film some inserts, like a mini film, that continues throughout the film, allowing us to seperate the segments even more and have some extra fun in the process. Starring Chris Johnson and Evan Tapper, we hope you agree come October, that these were worth the extra few days filming.
As well as this comes the new artwork from the amazing Paul Stier who also produced the first poster. I absolutely love this!
Our very special thanks to the Express & Star for including the news about HOSD’s recent win at this year’s Midlands Movie Awards – again, it was a fantastic event and I’m so happy for this amazing cast and crew!
And congratulations to the Necromancers too….always wanting to hold the prize!
Recently, WCR Presenter Jason Forrest sat down with both young Joe and Tom themselves aka Jack Knight and Steve Salt, to discuss how they are gearing up ready to start filming You Are My Sunshine in the summer! The complete video interview is below, and there may be a little surprise in there as well, so keep watching till the end!
Thanks to Jason as well as the lads themselves for coming together to make the interview a reality!
While we’re in the deeper stages of post-production on Sustain, there’s also a behind the scenes documentary being worked on by Evan Tapper, who was commisioned by producer Troy to snip together something that would tell you the story of how the film was made, with contributions from cast and crew from all stages of the film’s progress. From inception, pre-production through to the final stages with eventual pick-ups being completed this past year. Here’s a few shots from the documentary so far!
As you can see, lots of the cast and crew speak about their time on the film, how they got involved as well as lots of behind the scenes footage so you can experience what we were all doing to make this film a reality. All being well, the documtnary will be included on the eventual physical media release down the line.
Until then, and in case you missed it, you can watch the previously released featurette that was made while in pre-production and shows some of the actors at the first few readthroughs leading up to the film’s first shooting day.
