As this project has matured and I’ve become a more experienced Film Producer, I’ve made a point in not making announcements unless I’m 100% sure that whatever I’m talking about in that announcement is either ready, or about to be. People often misinterpret enthusiasm for promises, and become upset when you can’t deliver on time. However, because I class the following announcement in the latter category, I thought I’d let you guys in on it…
Back in 2007, I shot a bunch of interviews with Nigel Billing, Kylie Cushman and John Mangan. Up until now, the tapes I shot on were just gathering dust. Luckily, I was recently able to transfer the interview tapes to my PC, and begin working on a new “Interview Series”, which will be a three part series, equalling around ninety minutes of total footage, released apart from each other, and starting with John’s.
The interviews provide an insightful look into the actors, their characters in Payne & Redemption, the work that went into Payne & Redemption at the time, and what Payne & Redemption means to them. I won’t give a release date yet, but rest assured, I am cutting the interviews together as we speak, so I will keep everyone up to date as and when.
On a different note, I picked up a copy of Alan Wake on Steam when it was released on February 16th, and my God, what an awesome game that is! Writers Sam Lake and Mikko Rautalahti have really out done themselves on this one. Here’s hoping the sequel, Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, also sees a PC release in the not-too-distant future, as I already crave more of Bright Falls, and I haven’t even finished the first one yet. Remedy, you guys have been gone too long. Welcome back!
If any of you guys haven’t yet played Alan Wake, but own a PC, I urge you to get it NOW! At Â£22.99, it’s a deal, it’s a steal, it’s the sale of the fucking century! 😀
