Festival Fever [3]

The second annual Grindhouse Planet Film Festival premiered All Bad Things… on Sunday evening. Here I am afterwards, with organiser Marc Hamill. Also attending the event, held at The Shed in Leicester, were writer / director Chrissie Harper and associate producer Carl Timms, whose zombie comedy Still was having its final festival screening.

Update: As a result of this screening, All Bad Things… now has an IMDb entry.

Fresh from last month’s cast and crew screening, our short fantasy All Bad Things… will receive its official premiere on 26 November, when it’s shown at the second annual Grindhouse Planet Film Festival in Leicester (out of competition, since I’m one of this year’s judges).

To tie in with its maiden voyage into the festival circuit, my colleague Chrissie Harper has designed the poster below, featuring actors Liam Woon and Demelza O’Sullivan.

A Shot in the Dark

Don’t worry, this isn’t the way I raise the production budgets for our movie projects. This photograph was taken by Chrissie Harper after the first of two days’ filming at our friend Blake Woodham’s home in Harborne, Birmingham, which was doubling for both a retired professor’s cottage and his psychiatrist daughter’s office in our forthcoming release Terror at Bell’s End. The replica gun was sourced by our male lead, John Messer. We were about to head up the road to the Cotteridge home of his co-star Melyza Fay, where the two of them would be pursued by an unseen killer through her back garden.

And here they are…
