Your Majesty, I am waiting... 
Sunday, June 18, 2006, 08:14 PM
Next year, your Majesty, I fully expect and thoroughly intend to accept your offer of Knighthood. You see, it occurred to me recently that all I ever do is give, give, give, and it’s time high time for our matriarch to give something back! Alas, I must wait 'til next year for this honour, so I will continue this year in the same vein.

I am now happy to offer someone the opportunity to show off their Flash, HTML, animation and graphical skills, so if you have any experience in these fields and want to be given a world wide conduit, e-mail our webmaster at info*at*payneandredemption.com.

Atrophically yours,

Luke "Jeff Garlin" Morgan-Rowe.
Producer with more bottle than Budweiser.

CAST PHOTOS RELEASED! The Revolution will not be televised... 
Sunday, June 11, 2006, 12:58 AM
... it'll be on film! Well, on this blog really, but the blog is about a film, so it kind of works. Yes, I know, it's a bit like saying that you can drive the Top-Gear magazine, but as you may have gathered so far, I don't care.

As princes progress to kings, students to professors, corporals to generals, morons to directors and doctors to gods, I am in the process of revolution - no longer will I grace your desktop resolution with my rantings as Luke Morgan-Rowe, Executive Producer - from this day forth, I shall be Luke Morgan-Rowe, Producer.

'What's the difference?' I hear you say, 'Is it really a revolution? It sounds more like devolution - I mean, you've lost a word, and quite an important word too - executive sounds kinda powerful' Fair points. The change in title is something I requested, as really, the only difference is that I no longer have to wear a suit - which is better for the summer months.

In other news, our otherwise-unwell writer/director, Fergle Gibson, has been exercising his adobal talent and has created some stylised (I hate that word) photographics which appear to feature our actors in rather unpleasant, gritty situations - also, worryingly, they appear to have contracted some nasty disease that has decoloured their skin, and injected their eyes with some sort of stylistic colour. Weird.

Well alas, Kumar & Clark have no mention of such a disease - so I reckon it's some poetic-license thing that these creative, la-di-da prissy sorts seem to be so keen on quoting - to me, it just seems like some excuse to come up with wacky, unrealistic plots, stories or images - damned fiction.

Anywho, I will finish by caressing your ears, gently allowing my words to flow through your veins, pierce through your heart, pollinate your lungs, crawl through your liver and seed in your brain.....

Good Bye.
Luke Morgan-Rowe.
Executive Producer.

Interview with the Director Pt. II... 
Saturday, June 10, 2006, 11:21 PM
G'day, gang! It's been a while since I posted, but have just completed my second interview with the guys at Payne Reactor, so thought I'd post an excerpt of it on the blog...

Patrick: How is the film progressing?
Fergle: We're progressing at a pretty steady rate at the moment, awaiting confirmation from our DP on the location. Once that's done, we'll be able to arrange shooting dates with everyone involved, which we expect to be during the summer, this year.

Patrick: Has any footage from the film already been shot?
Fergle: Well, I could lie, but I won't. So no. No footage from the film has been shot.

Patrick: Has any of the film's score already been recorded?
Fergle: Justin R. Durban and I have been in constant communication, discussing various ideas for the score, and he has come up with some samples, but understandably can't score the film until he has seen the finished product.

Patrick: Why have things been so quiet recently?
Fergle: I think I'll let Sir Executive Producer answer this one...

Luke: The main rate limiting step thus far has been finding an appropriate location. It has taken us since December last year to come up with just one viable suggestion, which, as mentioned before, our DP has yet to confirm. Everything else is ready to go, and I've been keeping everyone updated on the blog.

Patrick: How do you deal with certain issues, such as being unable to set up meetings because of busy schedules, etc?
Fergle: A porch, rocking chair, loaded shotgun, and a large bottle of whiskey in a paper bag... then I wait for the unsuspecting tourists to walk by.

Luke: That has probably been the most difficult thing so far, and this is probably because no one is being paid to work on the shoot. However, everyone involved has bent over backwards to find the time in their busy schedules to meet with us, although what with my constant nagging phone calls, I don't think they like me all that much anymore.

Patrick: Are you going to make the planned release date, or will it most likely be pushed back?
Luke: So far, we're still on target, but reserve the right to change the date if circumstances must.

Patrick: Can you tell us a little about the story at all?
Fergle: We're keeping the story under lock and key until the film is released.

You can read the rest of the interview here.

Stay sharp, people.

Due to a few problems with the server this week, if you tried e-mailing anyone at Payne and Redemption dot com and got your e-mail bounced back to you, that'll be why... Either that or you don't know how to send an e-mail!

Everything has now been resolved, so please re-send any e-mails you might have sent us before, and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
