Oh, this is all very exciting. So exciting I had to blog about it.
1. I think we can officially say that WORK HAS BEGUN ON THE ZOMBLOGALYPSE MOVIE!
It’s early days (we’re at the emailing and chatting stage; we won’t be making the film for at least a year) but we’re going to start working on things like:
- A regular production blog
- Fun reports from our development sessions & general ‘look at us, we’re making a film’-ness
- Location scouts
- Make-up tests
- General giggling among Hannah, Tony and me as we wrestle our silly web series into a fully-fledged feature film
That’s a lot of fffffffffs.
Our Producer Steve (let’s call him ‘Producer Steve’) is off to Cannes next month to get things going for Zomblog and also whore & schmooze our black comedy Whoops! around a bit and see who bites.
It’s the next big step for us to have a passionate, dedicated Producer helping us to develop, fund and market our movies, and it’s a very exciting time where we hope we can expand on all the work we’ve put in to get this far. We’re keen to work with many of the talented, fun people we’ve worked with before and reward them as they’ve rewarded us with their skills and loyalty.
2. WE’RE WRITING ANOTHER HORROR FILM!
Not Whoops! and not Zomblog; another one. As soon as we can, we’ll say more about it, but as with Whoops!, it’s someone else’s baby, it sounds ace and it’s pretty high profile, so we’re very excited about it.
So that’s a trilogy of dark and ghoulish films we’re making over the next year! Getting closer to our dream of making several films a year, the Roger Corman-esque way of working that we’ve been building up to for a while.
We’re lucky to have gained some momentum and picked up some brilliant colleagues over the past year to make this happen, and when things get going a bit, we’ll announce the rogues’ gallery of who’s working on what with whom and who’s sleeping with whom, although if you see me in the street, just ask and I’ll tell you.
3. WE’RE WORKING ON SOME TV STUFF!
It’s a funny old world, television. It may take months and it may take years and it may never happen, but Tony and I are both working on several TV projects that, through various contacts and opportunities, may get off the ground. They may not, but we’re working on it, and in the meantime we’ve got plenty to be getting on with.
Thanks for reading this, for supporting us and wishing us well, and for continuing on this exciting journey with us. What’s past is prologue, and we can’t wait to see what’s to come…
