Go see "Anything Goes" at UCLA Theater School! A fantastic production of Cole Porter's timeless masterpiece! Jessica Armstrong (Reno Sweeny) is a STAR! Mke Grell, who was with me last night (because of our visit to BotCon as guests of IDW) bounced around the theater shouting: "That girl is a star mate!" Katie Boeck also shone as Hope Harcourt and the whole show was a fantastic night out! A great job by the whole cast! I highly recommend it for a fun and relaxing evening out in the theater in Los Angeles!

Post Production: Blood Type Trailer & Shawshank Redemption in Dublin

I'll be heading back to California today after a fantastic post-production and editing stint in Dublin based in the Screen Scene Production Facility. Hosted and supported by Jim Duggen and his staff the promo/trailer looks great and the brilliant editing skills of Paul Mullen (Once) help cut the material together with efficiency, patience and insight! Paul listened to my sometimes unusual, symbolic ideas during the edit and smiled with a curious, if bemused humor and we finally got a twelve minute trailer which also includes the track: Instant Love written by RJ and Robin Gibb.

The whole project is coming together very well although there'll be some more sound mixing and effects work to be completed but the whole "Vampire Universe" concept works really well and all the performers look great! The sword cane duel looks very good as well, though I say so myself, considering the limited rehearsal time the boys had to get it together.

RJ and Robin's beautiful new song:
Instant Love set's off the atmosphere and really captures the essence of the emotional back-story involving all the characters. We all ended up humming and whistling the tune for most of the week! RJ seems to be a chip off the old block when it comes to writing catchy tunes...

Also, Mick Kiely's eerie soundtrack and incidental music also sets up the gothic and edgy atmosphere of a menacing and insane world turned up side down. Great stuff Mick!

More news on Blood Type as it develops.

On different note, I had a fantastic evening on Saturday watching the Lane Productions preview of The Shawshank Redemption at the Gaiety Theatre in Dublin. My old
King Arthur pal; Paul Burke is the Fight Coordinator and the multi international-award winning director; Peter Sheridan helms this marvelous piece.

As the production is still in preview I'll not say too much, other than the show is really a highly creative theatrical adaptation of the Stephen King novel and is wonderfully executed by a very talented cast. It's a fantastic evening out in the theater and special mention must go to Reg E. Clathey as Red and Kevin Anderson as Andy Dufresne, who really take the audience on a deeply moving and ironically humorous journey. It was also wonderful to see Keir Dullea (2001-A Space Odyssey) as Brooksie.

Of course, Paul Burke's well-staged and brutal action keeps the constant threat of prison violence bubbling just below the surface and the fights are tight, bloody and full of menace. Great work mate!

I'll be back in L.A. tomorrow and I'm looking forward to working on a new track for
Wuthering Heights (Look At Me) with Robb Vallier later in the week.

More when I get over the dreaded jet lag...

I just wanted to say a quick thank you to Jim Duggen and everyone at Screen Scene Post Production Facilities in Dublin, especially Paul Mullen who did an amazing job editing the Blood Type promo. A first class editing environment and John and Wil are over the moon with the results! I'll blog more fully about this over the weekend.
