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.


Luke "Jeff Garlin" Morgan-Rowe.
Producer [in need of a psychiatrist].

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.

E-mail problems... 
Friday, May 26, 2006, 07:12 PM
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.

And The Winner Is... 
Sunday, May 21, 2006, 09:49 PM

Only kidding - actually I'm not - but with reference to my competition, I am not.

Now who should I give the 10 pounds prize to? 'Fern' guy - you get it. I know where you live...

So what's been happening these past few days? Well, I've been cooking. That's right, me and a large saucepan. A large saucepan, or stew pot, if you will, in which I tried to add two actors, one makeup artist, one hair stylist and a photographer. All that and a sprinkling of frustration - that sums up what has been happening these past few days - you nosy sod. Indeed more frustration than a hamster in one of those drag-car ball things that can only go forwards and back (if you don't know what I'm talking about, then you haven't lived). So needless to say, the photos may be slightly delayed...

Buoyed by the response to my last competition, I think I'm going to up the ante a little and throw in some real prizes - an official film T-shirt for the 2nd & 3rd best entries and a day on set for the best. So if that's something you fancy competing for, slip on your creative/wit shoes and reply away...

What would Max Payne's favourite joke be?

Ok, I will announce the winners in a week or so (but remember that I am the real winner - of everything).

Personas gordas gobiernan el mundo,
Luke Morgan-Rowe.
FBI's Most Wanted Executive Producer.

No more tick-tock... 
Wednesday, May 10, 2006, 11:02 AM
That's right, no more tick-tock my shiny happy friends - by the end of the month...

Luke "Jeff Garlin" Morgan-Rowe.
Daily Mail-burning Executive Producer.

P.S. No, I'm not talking about the film - if you haven't the foggiest what I'm on about, which I highly suspect to be the case, you will have to explore the whole site.

P.P.S. Disappointed at the lack of response to my last competition, I shall propose you another:

If Max Payne were to have a pet, what would it be? 10 pounds for the best answer.
