We’ve Moved…

Thanks for stopping by, but as of now the Amicus updates will appear at:

I’ve Come To Soil Your Quilts…

Filming…and step on your chickens.

Last night, following the success of Filming – Part One, we rather predictably embarked on Filming – Part Two.  This involved some filming, a few bits of costume, amazing set-dressing, and the logistics of moving everyone in and out of the scene at the right time.  I still can’t share too much, but…

We started off with a quick run through of the script, with minimal actions, but much laughing.  Then we made the tea, by dressed the set and made “snow” {1, 2, 3} which would later be shaken by David.  Then onto a full pre dress rehersal with Simon ably directing, and people mostly following his instructions.  Cookies were eaten, lines were mimed (yeah, weird isn’t it) and there was a massive mess made on the floor of the multimedia room.  But well done to everyone for tidying up in double-quick time – pity all the polystyrene snow ended up in David’s hair.

There are a few pictures below and more in the gallery which will give you a flavour of what went on.

Secret Filming

I managed to take the following film which doesn’t give away too much, except the amount of fun we had tonight:

Caption Competition

The picture below is just crying out for the return of the Caption Competition. There will be a yummy prize next week for the caption I judge to be the funniest – leave your suggestion as a comment below – and be sure to leave your name and email address.
