Hungry, Horny Vampire

October 11, 2012

In celebration of the fact that I have just finished another sketchbook (this one lasted 4 months), I present you with two collages from its depths.

I say collage all I did was stick some photocopied images down and draw on them using a pen, then colour them using water colours. There isn’t a single piece of dried pasta or string there. I didn’t even use PVA glue!

On a side note, I have been working on writing a film about vampires (who isn’t?), one of those done when it’s done type things. Although now, after just having typed up this little post I’ve just given myself another idea for a psychedelic little short with bloodsuckers. How wonderfully self gratifying.

Top Ten Ginger Deaths in Film

January 9, 2011

Here it is folks!

The Top 10 Ginger Deaths in film:

Drum roll please…

10Watchmen

I didn’t like what I saw of the film and I like this scene even less. The explosion is not quick or violent enough and it completely cheapens the impact of Rorschach’s death. However i’m sure there are some of you that liked it, so this is for you.

Enjoy

(p.s. If you haven’t, read the comic if it’s the only one you ever read)

9Dune

I understand Kyle Machlachanahnan must’ve been under a lot of pressure when David Lynch asked him to have a duel to the death with Sting on the set of Dune. Not only was sting already an established actor due to his exceptional role in Quadrophenia but he was also highly proficient with a blade due to his time as a knife fighter. During matches he would regularly discard the blade and proceed bite his opponents, thus earning the name ‘the sting’ (later shortened) as his behaviour was often fast, unexpected and injuries stung afterward.

Anyway, Kyle Machlachanannannn fights Sting, he gets the upper hand and kills sting in the head with a knife, he then shouts so loudly he makes the ground break.

Class.

8 Ken Park

It’s a nice summer day, this Kid called Ken goes skate boarding. On his journey to the skate park he does some tricks and by the time he gets there is frustrated because his ‘skilzz’ are ‘whack’ so blows his brains out in front everyone.

This is why something called practice was invented.

7Goldeneye

Fat, balding, ginger admiral…DEATH BY SEX!

(even better because it’s in Hindi)

6 Last Action Hero

Charles Dance shoots Arnie and is about to finish him off with a knife…

But Arnie attacks him with words:

‘No sequel for you!’

Arnie then shoots Charles Dance in the eye who then explodes…twice.

5Perfume

Jean-Baptiste Grenouille likes to smell red heads. Hey, i’m not judging…whatever tickles your pickle. Thing is he goes a bit further and kills them. In this scene he follows a girl, sniffs and then strangles her.

Later on in the film he goes further still and shaves a dead chick’s head, keeping the hair and turning it into a perfume. That gets him into some touble so maybe taking the hair was a step too far.

(I couldn’t find the exact scene online, so this’ll have to do)

Next time a guy tells you he thinks you smell so good he wants to make a perfume out of you, just be careful because he might really be saying ‘I want to kill you and shave your head.’

4Goldfinger

Another James Bond one, this time Auric Goldfinger is sucked out of a plane arse first.

I’m noticing a theme with fat balding red heads in James Bond…

3Starship Troopers

Everything is going well…as well as any retreat from giant alien bugs that spray fire from their faces.

Dizzy (a hot chick with a gun) kills a bug and is pretty happy because it’s worth at least 1000xp meaning she’ll level up really soon and will be able to upgrade her dexterity because lately she’s noticed that her combat reflexes were not as good as they should be.

Anyway she’s waving to Rico who’s pretty impressed and just as she’s about to get on the ship…

BAM!

Impaled by a giant insect spider thing and stabbed like 50 times!

Everyone’s a bit sad, not that sad, but a bit upset. She tries hitting on Rico with blood coming out of her mouth and all these new holes she’s gained. Rico doesn’t find it sexy because she’s pretty much dead, and then she dies.

Yeah well that’ll teach you to put points into charisma, all the good it did you.

2 Dune (again)

This is probably the most brutal one out of the lot. Fat, puss ridden, homosexual Baron Harkonen is having his face poked at by some subserviant mad pervert ‘doctor’. Some slave kid comes in and the Baron is on it already.

He levitates up to this young ginger boy with what can only be described as a curious-and-excited look-of-a-determined-sex-face and then proceeds to bleed the boy to death.

Why?

Because he can.

1Once Upon a Time in the West

This number one for good reason.

It is perfect.

It’s the first impression you get of Henry Fonda’s character (Henry Fonda was famous for playing good guys so this was quite a change). His gang shoot up the innocent McBain family murdering three of them except the youngest, who then comes out to find his family dead.

He stands there in shock as five men in dusters approach him.They stand there looking at him. Henry Fonda sort of smiles and looks like the doesn’t really want to kill the kid, but you’re unsure if he is because of the look in his eyes. Then after the goon speaks you know he is.

Goon:’what do we do now frank?’

Fonda:’well now that you’ve called me by name…’

BAM!

Dead ginger kid.

Brilliant, Beautiful. Ruthless.

Ever Wondered How?

August 4, 2010

You may want to watch Nuit Blanche first. In fact I recommend that you do.

What I find really interesting is the way the film has been composited to produce the final piece. This is made clear in the making of video below:

Pretty cool eh? I’m now assuming this process was used for the Film Four idents, and there I was thinking they actually flung people through windows for real.

Almost There

June 4, 2010

The film is nearly finished, after the assessment we (by which I mean I) have one week to finish animating before the final film is submitted for the end of year show.

I’m really looking forward to that. Not because of the free alcohol but because it will all finally be over (breathes a heavy sigh of relief). I will have my life back and will be able to do all the things I want to do! Yay!

Here’s a little first draft poster idea thing-a-majig I made.

Don’t Cha Just Hate It?

December 23, 2009

I just saw a cowboy film I last saw when I was on holiday in 1996 and back then I thought it was awesome. For 12 years my brother and I wondered what it was called since we missed the beggining, there were no ad breaks, or TV guides in English, hell we didn’t even know what channel we were on!

The only detail of particular note that we remembered was the name of the Villain.

Graff

One night last year, by chance I stumbled upon information that led me on the trail to finding out what the film was called.

I found out, not only that the film was called The Last Outlaw, but that Graff was played by none other than Mickey Rourke.

A year later at my brother’s insitence I find a copy, we get drunk (that’s another story), and we watch the film.

I have to say we were both quite disappointed.

It just wasn’t how we remembered it. The film we saw all those years ago was epic, violent and cool and I swear there were Apaches in it.

This was short, dumb, and boring furthermore it lacked any type of native american tomahawk wielding, bow slinging action.

(side note: This is in comparrison to the film we expected to see, as a film it’s quite good and the acting is fine.)

The memory of the film all those years ago has not been tainted, and I retain the essence of what it was that made it great to a 7 and 10 year old.

One day i will make the film that i saw and not the film it was 13 years later. I might even throw in a few other fun elements into the mix. I think it would be pretty cool to change Graff into some sort of Vampire, Werewolf, stalker killer thing and give all his old posse bigger guns.
