Halloween: H33 on Vimeo

The short film I wrote and directed for FrightFest 2011 is now up on Vimeo, in glorious HD! It's called Halloween: H33, and basically it's a spoof trailer for a terrible sequel to the original Halloween.

There will, at some point, be a big blog post about the process of making the short, as I learned a lot from it. I need to do one for Girl Number 9 too. But for now, enjoy the splattery silliness of H33. Some of the cast and crew are listed on the IMDB, we're slowly adding everyone but the IMDB doesn't always accept them.

Big thanks to the lovely Mr Dan Turner for re-compressing the file for me, as my lack of codec skills kept making everything go orange. Not just the file - I literally turned the whole universe orange. Don't worry, it's fixed now. Except for oranges, they're stuck that way.

Open all hours

I started updating the page where you can buy stuff I've written, but it was such a gigantic arse-fiddle, I threw it out and created a mini Amazon store instead. It means I can quickly and easily update it when new stuff comes out, and don't have to rely on my clunky HTML.

So there's now a new link in the top menu, called "Buy my stuff". The mini Amazon store is on that page, and contains everything I've written that is available to buy in the UK. Underneath that are two Region 1 links, because I didn't want to set up a separate store for US stuff, and I don't think I can, anyway. If you choose to buy anything from it, then I get a small referral tip, which will eventually maybe earn me enough to buy a KitKat. I know! Free KitKat! One day, anyway.

Obviously you don't have to buy anything through this blog, I just like having everything organised and in one place. And yes, it's a bit of an ego boost to see all my work displayed like that - writers are an insecure bunch, desperate to be loved.

By the way, schoolkids are only allowed into the shop in groups of two. And no reading! This isn't a library!

Tower Block poster and images

News! Actual news! With pictures!

There are some new images and a poster for Tower Block, as reported here on Beyond Hollywood and Blogomatic 3000 - both links have some plot spoilers, so don't read the text if you don't want to know anything. I love the poster, it looks really cool, and I'm very pleased that it uses the tagline I came up with.

The movie is finished now, and we should know about release dates and a trailer very soon, hopefully.
