Updates, plans and fresh impetus

We've been a bit mean with updates to the news blog lately so I'm going to reinvigorate the ol' bird and give it some fresh impetus. Here's what's happening in our world.

Our other blog UMOKYEAH is chugging along nicely, satisfying our desire to publish silly thoughts and pictures while venting some spleen when it all gets a bit too much.

On the animation front, Louis is multi-tasking through some test footage for the Brothers McLeod while thinking about resolving Man in a Cat with it's intended (and ultimately more satisfying) ending. A trailer for Man in a Cat should be in the works very soon in preparation for some festival appearances (hopefully).

Film-wise, our new 'made-in-a-couple-of-days' ethos is going well. The Outsider got some nice feedback and Max Fitness, again starring Tom Reid, is almost ready to be unleashed. Next up is the Film Dash 48-hour film competition which we'll endeavor to patch something together for, followed by another series of quick improvised shorts.

In the writing stakes, we'll soon be in the process of writing an expanded follow-up series for Max Fitness, a short story called The Third Stroke which we'll aim to make as a film sometime, and another short film which needs an ending. Oh, and I'll be blogging on the Film Dash among other bits for 4Talent magazine while Tom and I will be contributing to new music/film/everything blog/website Aural Pleasure too.

I think that's mostly what's going on. Hopefully we'll update more regularly now and may just send out some calls for help for various things we'd like to do in the near future.
