New project

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) plus contributor’s copies. 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.

Good luck out there.

Good luck.

Martin Freeman to Star in RICHARD III at Trafalgar Studios, Summer 2014

According to the Daily Mail, THE HOBBIT’s Martin Freeman is set to take on his first Shakespearean role in RICHARD III, aiming to begin this summer at Trafalgar Studios.

Read the original story here.

Presented by Jamie Lloyd Productions for Traf Transformed, RICHARD III follows King Richard III of England’s rise to power and subsequently short reign.

Freeman last appeared onstage at the Royal Court in Clybourne Park.

The actor will next appear as ‘Bilbo Baggins’ in The Hobbit: There and Back Again. He is also well known for his portrayal of ‘Watson’ in the UK TV series Sherlock, as well as ‘Tim Canterbury’ in the UK version of The Office. His past film credits include The World’s End, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead, Love Actually and more.

[edit to say, it has been confirmed by the producer/director Jamie Lloyd on his Twitter account: https://twitter.com/lloydjamie and by Amanda as well https://twitter.com/CHIMPSINSOCKS )

Hi everybody, let me introduce you to my new project “The Look Again Gallery”, an online gallery that features artists found on Tumblr. You can find it at this address: www.look-againgallery.tumblr.com.

Of course Tumblr already has a lot of blogs that promote photography and they all do a fantastic job. At a very small scale, here is my contribution.

I hope you will have a look, enjoy and (re)discover talents.

It’s a new band
It’s not acoustic
It’s the best music they’ve ever made together
I can’t wait for you to hear it
However good you think it is, that is but a quark in the cosmos of how good it actually is”
“Everyone should pretty much be the most hyped and excited they have ever been for anything Omar+Cedric related, ever. If music has anything to do with it, I expect Antemasque to be their most successful project to date. I can’t BELIEVE they reinvented themselves again! It’s unheard of.

[A new project, which will star Jennifer Lawrence as Joy Mangano, the Long Island-based single mother famous for inventing the Miracle Mop.] “It’s a great story! It’s almost too good to be true. [Laughs] We’re going to do some serious damage with that story. She and I together again, it’s going to be exciting. […] It was introduced to both of us together by the people who had the [story] and we both just kind of said, ‘Wow, yeah, that’s good. Why would we let somebody else do this? We have to do this.’”
