Events- CHESTER WRITERS @ CHESTER LITERATURE FESTIVAL 2017

cwa17bIf you go down to the Storyhouse in Chester tomorrow, then you’ll be in for A BIG SURPRISE, as the Teddy Bears picnic nursery rhyme goes.

It’s one more sleep til Xmas. Erh, nope, sorry, not quite! One more sleep til the Chester Writers Anthology debut at the Storyhouse is what I mean! Then I will take to the stage for the debut of ‘The Case of the Missing Mince Pies’. I had thought of reading it in the style of Tommy Cooper’s Hat Sketch, but that would be too confusing and I’ll never be able to pull it off anyway, so I will just have to read the story as it is written!

So it should be fun! Tickets are £5, including a copy of the Anthology and hopefully the weather won’t be too bad. The events on indoors anyway in the Garrett Theatre, so what the hey!

INFINITE TIGLETVERSES- COMING SOON!

itv2I’ve wanted to make some original stories/Films for a while now. It seems whenever I focus on Dr. Rrr/Infinite Whoniverses other things don’t get done- like the Photo/hiking updates

STORIES- They’re everywhere. But sometimes you have to go out and find them.

The good ones, the Best ones are the hardest to find. You have to go further and farther out to catch them.

This year, Infinite Tigletverses is boldly going places never been before, doing something completely different and being more ambitious than ever. Seeking Stories-

And no matter where it takes us,

We’re gonna find ‘em!!

Infinite Tigletverses- Autumn/Winter 2017/2018

 

 

Anything can happen Tuesday- My Directorial debut!

Yes, I am doing more than directing traffic or kids in the dinner queue!  One of the things I’ve had at the back of my mind for a while is producing/directing short films, live action rather than just me or my nephews and puppets.

Confusions is a series of one-act plays and I’m directing Drinking Companions, an interesting if somewhat dialogue-heavy scene set in a bar. While quite static, the challenge has been to make it engaging and interesting, which the actors are bringing life to. So I’m glad the opportunity.  Next week will be the conclusion and I am eager to see how it all turns out.

It got me musing on what else can count- directing myself and the hiking Vlogs/diaries maybe? Tiglet’s shenanigans and Dr. RRr has made me a puppet-master (ish) but directing people is a great step forward. Then that got me thinking I have directed Cosplayers/models for photos, so it’s another thing to build on.anything-can-happen-tuesdays-1

We’ll just have to see how it goes!

 

7th Blogversary

anniversary-2x7th blogversary

I know it’s a few days late, but that’s life at the moment, things not getting done and it seems to take FOREVER to get stuff updated. I am finally catching up on pictures for Tigletverse Facebook page, videos updated- no chance! I have submitted eight short stories this month, the most at one time, and yes, there’s been a rejection already, ah well, Ce la vie!

In amidst the entire editing/tidying/sorting/recycling etc I have started painting/modelling again- a Dalek for Infinite Whoniverses- The OmniStrategist and a Snowspeeder kit, which I’ve broke the engine off, so need glue to fix it. Gotten into Game of Thrones series 7, and Stranger Things series 1, and the soundtrack rocks, well, it’s Synthwave, so ish!

Anyway, there’s a bit of an update, still plodding along. My new academic diary from Sept17 to july18 says ‘plan the work and work the plan’ which is great advice. Just need to find a plan now that works!

Hi ho, let’s get to it then- Happy 7th Blogversary!

MCM Comic Con Liverpool- several shoots, a panel, and lots of walking round!

So I survived my first two-day Comic Con event last weekend, and worked on a few videos, even though with so much going on, I know I missed a few. Still, Doctor Who/Star Wars/RWBY and the Saturday Masquerade were all good, as well as my Superclark 3 shoot!

I also went for a drink with Darth Vader and few others on Saturday, which was a bit bizarre, but fun.

It was packed, crowded and a bit claustrophobic, especially the Sunday, so I left early, missing out on seeing the Attack On Titan cast, but ah well, another time perhaps. I’ve posted Doctor Who/Rwby/Sherlock and Star Wars on Youtube and might work on the other three. Oh and do the rest of the pictures too, if I get the chance!

Events- Liverpool MCM COMIC CON 2017- SUPERCLARK 3- Coming Soon!

DSCF0126So after two dozen Comic book Conventions/meetups and photoshoots last year, I’m off to the third event of 2017- MCM Comic Con-Liverpool, for BOTH days, not just one like last year.

Ellesmere Port Comic Con was great, I’m still working on photos, but getting EPCC and the Liverpool Cosplay Meet in January videos edited and uploaded was epic in itself. I made three versions of LCM with different music. The version uploaded featured Lindsey Stirling and Lzzy Hale from Halestorm and ‘Shatter me’. If that didn’t work, as backup I had Nami Kichi’s Cover versions of Brave Shine from Fate Stay/Night and Ignite from Sword Art Online 2.

For EPCC it was a general vid of the event and 360 shoot, then a video of the Cosplay Contest.

It was a comment off Ironman at EP that made me think I need to make another attempt at Superman/Clark Kent, so I have been planning a bit in advance, which makes a change from making things up as I go along like I normally do!

Anyway, that is the plan- Saturday Clark Kent, roving Reporter for the Daily Planet will be around, and then on Sunday I’ll need to find a Jimmy Olsen to film me doing my Super-thing!

Should be FUN!

Thanks also to Thomas Hulks as Professor Zoom/Reverse Flash!

VDay Blog- Courting Controversy

Here’s something el-presidente might tweet-

Lets play a game shall we? Just for fun.

Let’s call it ‘The Regeneration Game’. It’s a game any Doctor Who Fan can play, or writer/producer/actor, showrunner, whatever. You just have to lose the ability to count. Forget any ability to do simple maths, be a two year old just confused about this weird thing called ‘numbers’.

Actually, it’s a game Stephen Moffat invented, round about the time when he should’ve stepped down and done just Sherlock and Tintin rather than try juggling all three. (and dropping the ball on Who!)

Anyhoo, this is it- the only courting I’m gonna do on Valentine’s day- yes, SHE’S BACK BABY! A hot date with a Red-hot B^*%$! With a bad-A&%$ attitude- so watch out! Obi-Don Drumphioli never got as controversial as me and Miss C.

So, watch out, as we play THE REGENERATION GAME- Coming sooner than expected, or even wanted!

HAPPY VDAY!- WITH FLOWERS!
