The Dark Side of the Earth: February 20th, 2006

I know, I know. It’s been an obscenely long time since my last entry. The Soul Searcher DVD had me working flat out throughout January and since then I’ve been taking a well-deserved rest. I did manage to finish the second draft of the Shadowland script a few weeks ago, however. It’s still got at least one major problem in it, but I’ve sorted out all the unanswered questions that the first draft posed. Yesterday I advertised for more concept artists. As expected, some of the original artists have fallen by the wayside, leaving only David Ayling and Ian Tomlinson still working on it at present.
Last week I tracked down Mike Tucker and his company The Model Unit using this new-fangled information superhighway thingy. Mike was one of the main guys behind Red Dwarf’s fantastic model effects and his company now does all the models for Doctor Who – spaceships crashing into Big Ben, the new Daleks, etc. Anyhoo, I wrote to Mike briefly explaining my project and got quite a positive response. I’m now waiting to hear what he makes of the script. I expect he’ll think I’m bonkers.
