Demonstrating The Method

screening 5

On the 19th May Rich and I screened episodes four and five of All in the Method to a crowd inside The Drayton Arms theatre.             There we are, in that picture, doing some seamless introductions. The screening had been a long time coming, with quite a lot of prep work going in before we felt we were ready to showcase the new episodes. The crowd who came to the screening were particularly lucky (that's right, lucky) because they got to see episode five, which we don't plan on releasing for a little while yet. So let's hope no one leaks...

Don’t Wake Up

In a slight deviation from my usual Muzzle The Pig promotional blogs, also known as 'blogs where Luke pats various people on the back and tries to sound like he's a highly skilled film maker' - we have story time. I'm a good sleeper. If I had to rate myself I'd give myself a B+, losing marks for a not-too-regular event where I leap up and shout rapidly, terrified and frightened. The few times I've done that, haven't actually meant much for me, I mean I'm sure it was horrible at the time, but people who have witnessed it have said I instantly fall back to sleep like one of those creepy-ghost-riddled...

A Screening With The Hombres

Before I submerge myself into the dark and rather self-demoralizing world of pre-production on our first feature, I thought I'd deliver a nice positive update of what the hell we're doing - All In The Method Episodes 4 and 5... ...are coming in May. I promise, please stop urinating through my letterbox, there's only so many times I can pretend it was me sleepwalking. We have rough cuts of both episodes and there's now some serious fine tuning and music composing going on while Rich and I stand around pointing at things to try and seem important.             Yes...

Take Your Medicine

Oh, you're back at you? Fine. But just make sure you don't touch anything. All In The Method episode four and five are now in the edit suite and will soon be getting a bit of sound design. While that is enriching itself like a fine wine, we're already making plans for episode 6 that we're hoping to film maybe towards the end of April or perhaps in May, we don't know, we can't predict the future (though a soothsayer did once say I would lose some of my self-restraint and that became true because I started eating chips again soon after). But this blog isn't about All In The Method, nor is it about...

Shooting Action Heroes

smugglers

So it's been a week since we wrapped filming on @AllintheMethod. The episodes we've filmed are by far our biggest yet, with Rich and I setting out to put into action all the lessons we've learned throughout the filming of the three already released. Our pre-production was much more extensive, with the script calling for a lot of thought and specific styles, because wanting to shoot a double episode called 'The Action Hero' on a limited budget is always going to be a little touch and go. Being on a budget also makes it hard for us to be able to churn out multiple days worth of filming, meaning...
