Have another look at the goodies on offer at http://goo.gl/bsaiEc
Here is part of a note from the Director, Nick Willing:-
Thank you so much for your consideration. The ritual that is ALTAR has been quite an adventure. We are so tantalizingly close to making its fulfillment a reality. We will not have been able to do it without you.
I had a wonderful time being one of ‘The Them’ I was playing Adam, the Antichrist, in Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s famous book, ‘Good Omens’. Here is a photo of Dirk Maggs, the director and Heather Larmour, the Producer and of course, my hound from hell!!!
I have had the opportunity to work alongside some really brilliant actors and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience .I am really looking forward to ‘Good Omens’ being broadcast over the Christmas period.
Thank you, very much, to everybody concerned for making the recording days such good fun.
I wanted to say thank you to all the people who have responded to our quest and answered the call. The Kickstarter campaign is just over 50% funded and there has been a big surge in the last few days but we are not there yet. Take a look at all the goodies on offer and if you are on Twitter, please ReTweet to your friends. Copy and paste this link into your tweet:- Many thanks.
I am really pleased to say that a short film I filmed in Winter, 2012, called Lady Luck is an official selection for the
International Film Festival of Cinematic Arts
The Festival takes place from the 9th to the 12th October and the picture above is lovely, Jo Lewis, the director of Lady Luck. It starred the brilliant Tav Macdougall who kept playing pranks on me, Abigail Titmuss and the really funny Richard Strange. The official poster is here where you can get full details of the cast and crew. Wish us luck!
The drama continues filming. I will go back in October to finish my bits and I am looking forward to that too. I have made a short film with the other kids whilst we were on our breaks and I will put it on here later. It is an amusing, behind the scenes film. The crew thought it was funny that we were making a film of our own whilst filming.
Here we are having an editorial discussion. It all looks very serious!
I am really looking forward to continuing the recording sessions on ‘Good Omens’ next week. It is great fun and everybody is enjoying it. There have been a number of tweets about it and I have tweeted some stuff too and it has gone balistic! I have never had so many re tweets and favourites, ever. My followers have jumped up too. It just shows you how popular the book is and the tweets are coming in from all over the world! I am very honoured to be a part of it. Check it out at:- @atominator @DirkMaggs @neilhimself
On Friday I went for a cast meeting and read through for ‘Good Omens’ which is going to be a ‘Christmas Treat’, to quote the BBC press twitter feed. I have never been in a room with so many well known and respected actors. Here is a great photo of us all. ‘Good Omens’ has been written by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. There will be 5 thirty minute episodes followed by a 1 hour finale.
Here is a piece from BBC Media:-
Events have been set in motion to bring about the End of Days. The armies of Good and Evil are gathering and making their way towards the sleepy English village of Lower Tadfield. Atlantis is rising, fish are falling from the sky, the Four Horsepersons are assembling; everything seems to be going to the Divine Plan.
Everything that is, but for the unlikely duo of an angel and a demon who are not all that keen on the prospect of the forthcoming Rapture. In fact the prospect of Armageddon is all really rather inconvenient for them actually. But if they are to stop it taking place they’ve got to find and kill the one who will bring about the Apocalypse: the Antichrist himself. There’s just one small problem: someone seems to have mislaid him.
Released in 1990 and listed among the BBC’s Big Read Nation’s 100 favourite books, incredibly Good Omens has never been dramatised – until now.
Neil Gaiman, director Dirk Maggs and Terry Pratchett
