I'm hoping to upgrade my PC system in the next few weeks to finally get a machine than can cope with the HD editing I'm working on more and more.
Plans are underway to also set up a small studio area at home to start producing a regular vlog and also a possible YouTube series with my niece who's an avid Anime fan.
So with anime and film being big parts of our lives, we'll look at producing something along those lines. Reviewing anime and manga, digging out relevant news articles of new releases and also dropping in at a few of the regional Anime conventions.
(I'll be mainly behind the scenes & production where as my niece will be more the on screen presenter with friends)
The bigger news is my IMDB credits are starting to fill out nicely and there are some big film projects on the horizon.
Two post-apocalyptic Britain Action/Drama's based around a civil war between England and Scotland. Hopefully these will expand to be part of a series of short & features revolving around this concept. ("Broken Nation" and "Severed Nations")
A second project is the pilot episode of fantasy stories based on Celtic Legends and Monsters, small period dramatizations of the stories about the legends.
A great story of cops & robbers, friends trust & betrayal with an extra twist to finish.
I'm excited to be a part of this large production, not only for the fact it'll be the biggest project I'll have worked on (and we're talking major film budget/size) but also the chance to work alongside some worldwide famous people.
Confirmed so far are Bill Maynard, better known as Greengrass from Heartbeat and also TWO stars from AVP & Clash of the Titans. Adrian Bouchet (AvP, Coronation St.) and Ian Whyte (AvP, AvP2, Prometheus, Game of Thrones)
Last but not least is also someone who I could only have dreamed to work alongside. Unconfirmed at this time but a man who is WELL known and list of credits include Reign of Fire, Phantom of the Opera, 300, Gamer and How to Train your Dragon just to name a few.
So, here's hoping for a fruitful 2014 *raises glass*
