Today I wanted to start a new project here on the blog but miserably failed lol, I’m probably gonna post it tomorrow instead, everything is ready I just didn’t have time to post it here since I’ve been out all day. You’ll get what I mean with tomorrow’s post but that idea was to post on the first day of every month and on the first episode ever I already failed.
Here’s a picture of my theology notes, I always use the color blue for these notes and I’m quite happy that they turned out colorful, it makes studying more fun and less stressful.
How was your day? I have just one day left of holiday and then it’s Monday and the second year of uni starts (😱), where has the time gone?
There are things we cannot see that watch us. It’s the stories we rarely tell that shape us.
Then It Was Dark is a collection of personal paranormal experiences, true ghost stories, friend-of-a-friend tales and brushes with the unknown.
Have you ever experienced something unnatural, inexplicable, or just strange? Ever seen a ghost? Ever watch a dozen blue-eyed snakes leap out of a campfire and slither away into the woods? Ever talk to a serial killer? We want your stories.
Personal experiences are best, but friend-of-a-friend stories or historical nonfiction are also good. The stories don’t have to be purely scary, they can be funny, or sad, or just strange. As long as they fit the theme of first-hand encounters with the paranormal or the unknown.
Accepted stories will be paid $35 a page, (more if the project reaches its stretch goals). We’re looking for stories that are ten pages or less right now.
If you are a writer looking for an artist, or an artist looking for a writer, we may be able to match you up.
If you are a creator with a story of your own and the chops to draw it, excellent!
If you are interested, send your pitches here. Please do not start work until your pitch is accepted (unless you just want to draw the story for yourself anyway.)
The deadline for pitches is March 15th, 2014. You can submit as many as you want, but try to narrow it down to two or three at the most.
The Hobbit star to topline zombie thriller from The Babadook producer; Bankside launches sales.
The Hobbit star Martin Freeman is attached to star in zombie pandemic thriller Cargo from producer Kristina Ceyton (The Babadook).
Bankside is launching international sales on the project in Cannes and has pre-sold UK rights to Icon Film Distribution, which had success at the local box office with The Babadook. Umbrella Entertainment will release in Australia/New Zealand.
The feature is based on Yolanda Ramke and Ben Howling’s short of the same name, which clocked more than 10 million views on YouTube. Howling will direct with fellow first-time feature director Ramke, who has also written the script.
Freeman, who stars alongside Benedict Cumberbatch in hit BBC series Sherlock, will play a father who, stranded in rural Australia in the aftermath of a violent pandemic and, infected himself, desperately seeks a new home for his infant child and a means to protect her from his own changing nature.
Sam Jennings of Australia’s Causeway Films produces with Ceyton alongside Russell Ackerman and John Schoenfelder of LA-based Addictive Pictures. The film is set to shoot in Australia in fall 2016.
Financiers include Screen Australia, South Australian Film Commission and Head Gear Films. CAA and Bankside co-represent North American rights.
Bankside’s head of sales and marketing, Stephen Kelliher, said: “We are delighted to be working with the producers of The Babadook on Cargo. These filmmakers have a distinctive and elegant approach to the genre that we are certain will excite distributors and audiences worldwide.”
Ceyton added: “Martin Freeman is a singular talent who will add such depth and emotional sophistication to the role, and we know will make this story come alive in an unexpected and deeply moving way. We look forward to working with our partners Addictive Pictures and Bankside Films on this very special project.”
I loved playing Richard (III). It was the first time I had done Shakespeare as a professional actor. In twenty years I’d never done Shakespeare and I adored it! And I hope to do more.
The director who I did that with - Jamie Lloyd - he and I have plans to do a specific play in the next 18 months to 2 years.
Unfortunately, because theatre is a long commitment, you have to plan these things in advance. But I would love to work with Jamie again. I’ll never stop doing theatre. It’s the first thing, that taught me how to act so I will always do theatre.
