Incoming filmmaking diary...

I'm going to start up the filmmaking diaries again soon, if only as a way to keep myself motivated (if you don't know what I'm talking about the diaries for Jenny Ringo and the Monkey's Paw are here. Speaking of which, have you signed up for the mailing list yet? You really should. We've been sending out e-mails and everything). We're aiming to shoot the next Jenny Ringo film in February which isn't all that far away. We've started signing people up, we've been looking at locations...stuff is happening! Stuff I can write about in a sometimes amusing fashion!!

Meanwhile, if you want an idea of what the Entertainment Media Show I went to a couple of weeks ago was really all about, check out this video:


And if you pause it around the 6.43 mark you can see our table for a split-second! It's not at all sad that I'm pointing that out, I'm just making up for the fact that we didn't take any photos on the day and...actually, it is quite sad but at this point I'll take any exposure I can get.

So far all the feedback we've had from the people we gave the film to has been overwhelmingly positive...we just haven't had that much of it. We sent out our first e-mail which generated a bit more of a response but that seems to have slowed down now. Then again, I bought an indie comic at the show which I keep meaning to review on here and haven't done yet. Plus I'm hopeless at watching stuff - Brother Pete finally lent me his copy of Solomon Kane which I'd been bugging him about for months and it's been sitting on top of my TV unwatched for a week, and will probably remain so for a while. The point is I am taking comfort in my own laziness.

Meanwhile I'm preparing for an online release, which will probably happen after the Cine-City screening in December.

While I'm here, if you are in Brighton on Halloween you should definitely come to the MovieBar Halloween Special. We're showing short horror films all night and dressing up as monsters and stuff. Look, I made a new logo and everything...


I'm still working on the rather epic line-up, but there are some awesome films on there so far.

One last thing - here's the trailer for John Dies at the End, the first trailer I've seen in a long time that's actually made me really super-excited about an upcoming release...


Well, that and the trailer for A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas...

It's cool. I hope I get to watch it soon.

I haven't been that excited about a trailer since I saw the one for Phantasm II and couldn't sleep for three years.
