Suggestions / Re: More Ampney Crucis Investigates?
« Last post by Taryn Tailz on Today at 05:56:47 pm »
Maybe I dreamt it, but I thought Ian had said there wasn't much prospect of more?

Which would be extremely odd, seeing as we left Ampney Crucis in the middle of a story arc.

Books & Comics / Re: The PARAGON comic thread
« Last post by Daveycandlish on Today at 05:34:19 pm »
When small press stalwart Stephen Prestwood died last year I almost gave up on PARAGON as he had been the backbone of the comic for so long. It was only the enthusiasm of the other contributors that encouraged me to continue. Stephen had the final episode of Bulldog in his inbox to work on but never got to it. I've now found an artist who can finish the story off - all will be revealed next issue - but in the meantime, here's one from the vaults;
Bulldog has been going for over twenty years and here's a classic story, drawn by Paul Harrison and written by Jason Cobley



How many other small press comics can boast it has had contributors of the calibre of Si Spencer, Shaky Kane, PJ Holden and Garen Ewing? (I can only think of one!) Pro letterers Jim Campbell and HdE give it a professional sheen and the likes of Chris Askham, Steven Denton and Matt Soffe have all worked on covers over the years.

PARAGON is a continuation of the fine British tradition of action adventure anthologies. If you are a fan of such things, why not give it a go?

When it comes to games, GTA Vice City is still unmatched IMO.
Flash FM is a personal favorite.

Didn't George Lucas say you don't ever finish a film, just a reach a point where you can't do any more with it. (although that doesn't fully explain his obsession with tweaking Star Wars.)

Thanks,

I read somewhere that it's the difference between you knowing what you wanted to get on the page or on screen, but no-one else sees that, just the end result.

I could certainly spend another 6 months tweaking things, but the reality of bills to pay and hitting that date we'd set ourselves meant it had to go up.

I just tend to slip into a bit of a depression during post-production, since it's mostly on my shoulders by that point.

We ended up re-shooting the closeups of the dead stront, because the original wasn't gruesome enough and only held up in the wide shots. Same with the interrogation montage, we re-shot all that along with some other bits just before Christmas.

I'll be honest, it was a slog to get it done for Thought Bubble, and another slog to do it for the 40th. It's a relief to get it out the door.

When I was on the canal boat, some other boaters ran half their stuff off solar panels and swore by them. If/when I get to build my own cabin I'll be going solar/wind - f**k the grid! :D

In an ideal world, it would have been a real set or a location with some added CGI dressing and a cast of at least 30 stronts in makeup and costume - but that was never going to happen on our budget.

What gets me is that you have produced something that is on a par with, if not better than, a lot of the crap that makes it to the mainstream channels and you are apologising for the quality of the end result.  Seriously sir, if that made it to Blu ray then you would have a customer here in a heart beat.  That said, I can appreciate how, as the artist in question you may be more conscious of the flaws than us in the audience. 

In short, an outstanding piece of work.  Looking forward to seeing what comes next.

Creative Common / Releasing short fiction via Twitter...?
« Last post by blackmocco on Today at 04:27:34 pm »
Perhaps of no interest to yiz whatsoever, but I've started posting a short piece of fiction online via 140-ish lettered slabs on Twitter. It's titled '1978'. I'd submitted it to a couple of places to nowt (which of course may just mean it's shite. Haha! And all apologies if that's the case!), but I just felt bad for it sitting around scratching its arse and thought I'd try something a bit different.

Cheers folks!
