Why Annabel and Eddie were late to Edgar Allan Poe’s Murder Mystery Dinner Party, with priceless reactions from Lenore

The Poe Party bloopers were EVERYTHING

Some of my favorite moments: 

  • All of Oscar’s entrances (him dragging the cane on the ground had me dying)
  • “ughhhh cough cough cough cough cough cough cough cough” “Weird cough”
  • *Different take* “I think she’s pregnant”
  • “Ed…na… for the ladies…”
  • “I’m not staying here with Snow White and the Corpse Bride…or Oscar” and “I’m not staying here with The Crying Game and Helena Bonham Carter” and finally, “I’m not staying here with Mary-Kate and Sinéad”
  • The random iPhone on the floor after H.G. scurries away
  • “Dear, dear, dear, dear, dear, dear, dear,”
  • Lauren “The Rock” Lopez
  • “I, George Eliot, am a wo-maaan”
  • Literally just everyone. Everyone in the cast. You are all so adorable and did such a good job on this, especially with the time frame you guys had. You guys are all awesome.

So I’m taking a quick break before I dive down the Kissing in the Rain fan-canon rabbit hole to post some stills from another weekend directing project of mine.

Some of my Tumblr friends might be familiar with a directing series on my personal channel, I Didn’t Write This, in which I take short excerpts of poetry and literature written by other people and adapt them as a directing/filmmaking exercise. We did an episode in which I adapted a short excerpt from John Green's Looking for Alaskasince we had already recorded the audio for the Kissing in the Rain trailer.

A few weeks ago, I decided to finally check out Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl. I’d known about the book for a while and had been putting off reading it because I knew it would hit far, far too close to home (I’m a filmmaker whose creative origin story is tied pretty heavily to writing Harry Potter fanfic.) Reading Fangirl was like finding a long lost diary I’d forgotten I’d kept. I read it in two nights and fell completely and totally in love with these characters and the worlds they lived in, both in fictional fandom and IRL. Since I Didn’t Write This is my way of playing with source material I love, I knew I absolutely had to do a Fangirl episode of IDWT. I want to direct this feature so badly it hurts YOU GUYS ASDLKFJLSDK FLERMMMMMMMM.

I reached out to a few fanartists in the Tumblr tag because I thought it might be fun to use actual Fangirl fanart in my fangirl-directed fan-adaptation, so thanks goes to toerning for the sketches on Cath’s desk and doctorhooper for the fabulous poster design on the wall! We shot one scene adaptation and a few would-be promo stills as well. Much love to the always wonderful Mary Kate Wiles and the awesomely talented Denver Milord for being my Cath and Levi.

This episode of IDWT might take another week or so to come out while I work on Kissing in the Rain (which everyone should go watch Mary Kate being awesome in), so keep a look out and subscribe to my personal channel, maybe? If you like literary adaptations and shippy short films, it might be your kind of thing.

And just because it’s topical, hey look, here’s my old profile. #nostalgia

Much love,
