ANY WAY THE WIND BLOWS- THE BEST OF 2018

ANY WAY THE WIND BLOWS- THE BEST OF 2018

Time for another video update, well over due anyway, like my Library books probably are!

I had thought about another 10-15 minute epic, but Eric Calderone’s Metal cover of Bohemian Rhapsody swayed me toward something quick and simple, although watching it back, there should have been a few tighter edits- though the end is probably one of the funniest things I saw all year.

There are a few new events I’ve been to- Bolton Comic Con, Lightnight Liverpool, as well as The Pirate Festival and Fire sessions with the Fire Project. I even took in a bit more architecture, though I’m not sure about Art Fairs anymore.

Wildlife has been a bit thin on the ground, seeing the Fox was great, but need to practice that a bit more. Comic Cons are still the main events, so I’m looking at going London or Birmingham this year.

And there were a few Welsh Castles, something else to finish off, at least in North Wales anyway.

So there you go, Any way the wind blows, the Best of 2018!

771st post-IAN’S TRAVELBLOG ADVENTURES/TIGLETVERSE PHOTOGRAPHY Update

So I’ve not been blogging about much lately, think that should change- one thing I have been focusing on is a new CV/Resume, using LinkedIn as the template- So here’s what I put about ITA/TVP-

Travel and Event photography and videography. I have built up a diverse portfolio over seven years. Began with Hiking/outdoors and Nature photography and expanded to include a variety of events/exhibitions/Comic Cons/Wildlife and Urban cityscapes. Currently working on Christmas lights/Winterscapes 2 projects.

Ian’s Travelblogs no more- Beyond 6th anniversary

tvp6aTigletverse Travel and Photography- update

I’ve been reading a bunch of old blogposts from 2011/2012. I did a lot of hiking back then, also writing up where I went to as well. That was before the video blogging, or Vlogging on Youtube.

I’ve never got the time these days, nor an organising principle to get myself, err, organised!

So, I merged both Tiglet’s Travels and ITA in 2016, creating Tigletverse Travel and Photography, with one Facebook page (please Like!) and not much up on Pinterest. BUT NOW ON FLICKR! With Wild Walks on the Welshside kicking off 2018- so far I have been to Wepre Park (twice), Flint Castle, Loggerheads, Llwyni ponds, Bailey Hill in Mold, Caergwrle Castle, Southport and a walk to Another Place for an Awesome sunset, Chester in the Snow and round St. George’s Hall for my Birthday and finally going round Spike Island in the fog one Monday morning, and that was all before Easter!

I have also been along the Bridgewater Canal- Preston Brook section, Etna Park with a bit of the Buckley Heritage Trail, Pex Hill and Blundell’s Hill after a job interview (which I didn’t get!) Liverpool Lightnight, including the performance by Bring the Fire Project. I also saw the Museum of the Moon, which is an artwork based on NASA photographs and seems to be on tour in several places at the same time. I have also taken a few pics of the real thing, along with Sun pictures, including New Brighton and West Kirby Marine Lake.

Event-wise, Wales Comic con was awesome, been to Liverpool museum and an amble round Chester on the Upton Scarecrow Trail.

I have been attempting to catch up on a mass of editing, of both photos but mainly videos, so hopefully will have caught up with those by the end of June, which will bring me to 500 videos, though the next episode of Dr. RRR’s Guide to the Whoniverses is going to be more complex than the Morbius one, so WHO knows when that’ll be completed!

So that’s it, that’s the big update for Spring and the Summer-so-far on the Hiking/Event front.

STAY GROOVY AND SMOOTHIE!

 

 

GREY DOMINION- Trailer 1- I slept through the apocalypse

GREY DOMINION- Trailer 1- I slept through the apocalypse

gd2

I’ve put up a new video on my Youtube channel. Shocking, I know! After putting up a dozen hikes and events from Jan-March, I’m now behind again on April’s events. One thing I spent most of last weekend on was the footage I had shot of ‘The Mothership’ or Mersey Dome at Pierhead, New Brighton and Woodside the other week. This is part of Grey Dominion, an unfinished film script I first outlined back in 1997/98. Set in 2028, a decade after Contact with the Grey Dominion, the last few resistors discover the truth behind the Greys and witness the End of the Grey Lord’s reign.

There are several obvious influences- V, War of the Worlds, Independence Day. When I learned that the new version of War of the Worlds was being shot in Liverpool, I thought I had best get a move on with my own version.

I was going to work on the sequel to Tiglet’s Time Travels- again featuring an invasion centred on Liverpool. In fact, most of my scripts/short film ideas are set in or around the city and I’ve made over a hundred videos of different places and events over past five years. GD I actually pitched to Phil Redmond when I was involved with Shout radio- the Student radio society at JMU, but didn’t really develop it into a Radio play. I did pitch a Doctor Who version in about 2000 to BBC Books, but that wasn’t accepted, so I lost interest and worked on other things.

I have also been watching V again, as it was the 35th Anniversary last week. Most of the storyline of GD began as a ‘Liverpool Resistance’ story, although it was headed by Stevie Kuza, a Japanese student. When I changed the Lead to Lucius, who I thought might be Black, but I don’t know if that would be best. I mean, what do I know about Casting? I’ve sent CV’s to Agents in the past and heard nothing, I’ve cast myself in several puppet shows including doing Dalek voices, plus had my Nephew’s in Pawlock , but Casting Other People? Okay, let’s do it!

So, I will be getting that sorted in the next couple of months and hopefully get two more trailers done and the main shoot by the end of the summer- though I am aware I’m not the best at scheduling either- IW 5 has only one story out of six finished, so that’s dragging its feet. But the journey to get GD made has begun!
