Interview with Outward Film Network

I think it’s safe to presume that people around me know I’m very private and reserved when it comes to talking about myself. I’m quite happy being in the shadows and just being left to get on with the behind the scenes saga of making a film.

However, I was approached by the kind folks over at Outward Film Network who asked if I would like to be interviewed for their amazing website which is tailored towards the indepdent filmmaking scene and the kindness they showed me as well as their devotion to the indie filmmaker scene persuaded me to drop a few thoughts down to their questions…. well I say a few…. about 4,000 words later, I was all waffled out.

Anyway, here is the link to the full interview over on their amazing site. Check them out please! Thank you so very much to Mark and the entire team over on the page, who are all absolute superstars!

Get Ready for SNARL

Werewolves are just a myth right? ­čÉ║ SNARL is now in preproduction from director L.J Stark Greenwood and stars Jay Podmore, Charlie Clarke, Jack Knight and Troy Dennison. It has been written and will be produced by myself with executive producer duties falling onto Pat The Bull Films and BrumTown Films.┬á

This past weekend, the cast met up for the first time to go through the script with director L.J. while also doing costume tests as well as other preparation.

The film is expected late 2019. Keep checking back for updates! Because there are lots more to come before we start filming this Easter 2019!

Jay Podmore joins SNARL

Lots of things going on behind the scenes of this film we’re prepping to shoot early next year and now we can announce a new addition to the cast!

Next up joining the SNARL cast alongside Charlie Clarke and Jack Knight is the equally amazing Jay Podmore, who will be playing Elijah, in this eerie new Werewolf tale from director L. J. Stark Greenwood, which starts shooting in April 2019.

Stark comments; “Jay is a fantastic actor and having seen him already in our previous effort, Sustain and just how commanding he is in that, he was just a natural choice to pursue for the role of Elijah and I cannot wait to see what he does with this highly conflicted character through his stunning on-screen talents as well as how he bounces off Charlie and Jack’s characters! It’s going to be amazing!”

SNARL is being directed by L.J. with a script by Dave Hastings who also produces. Will Bradshaw is director of photography while Kaushy Patel is on executive producer duties with Troy Dennison providing special make up and creature FX with Alex Bourne.

The film is expected late 2019. Keep checking back for updates!

Finders Keepers: On Set With The Dark Ditties Team

Myself and Will Bradshaw were recently asked to help out on the new episode of the Dark Ditties series, made from the fine folks behind the Leviathan: The Story of Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II,You’re So Cool, Brewster! The Story of Fright Night as well as many other exciting projects!

Popping up north to meet the team who were already on their 3rd day of shooting, we were made to feel really welcome by everyone who came to have a chat with us and it was a pleasure to work alongside them. We were also asked to head up a small second unit to help get some shots needed for the edit while the main team worked on other scenes. This allowed us to work with the wonderful Simon Bamford (I never in my life thought I’d ever get to work with anyone from Hellraiser, never mind direct them!), and we had some wonderful moments wherein his character is running through the woods coupled with both a handcuffed briefcase and immaculate wig!

As well as this, we also helped grab some special fx insert shots, which were fantastic to do, again working with some wonderful fine folks, as well as Simon’s wig again (it’ll all make sense when you see it!).

Thanks again to everyone for making me and Will really welcome. Was a pleasure and look forward to episode 4!

Project Updates!

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!

More Halloween Documentary Filming Teasers!

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!
