Squid Ring

I couldn’t come up with a fishy pun for this guy so I’ve just titled this drawing “Squid Ring” . I had originally intended to have the squid character ( who featured for about 3 seconds in the short ) in the earlier drawing, Out to Sea, but couldn’t find a good spot to put him in so instead he or she gets his own drawing. Alongside the other drawings, this should cover almost everything that featured in the The Beast of Bath.

Editing You Know the Words is still ongoing but I’ve reached the important milestone of finally getting around to finishing the opening credit music and adding it to the edit. The film is now likely going to have a running time of about 7 to 7:30 minutes, with the juxtaposition of cuts being almost finished, the next large portion of work will go into audio work and grading. So far it’s looking pretty good but there is still tonnes left more to do.

I’ve recently invested in a Wacom tablet for the purpose of storyboarding films and just doodling around for fun. The script is still being worked on but that doesn’t stop me from storyboarding some scenes. Production could either start in November or December depending how confident we are with the script. Anyway, here are two relatively spoiler free sketches of ‘Dump’:

It was the 6 O’Clock in the morning, suffering from a touch of insomnia. To occupiy my mind, I tried thinking of movie ideas. I was currently struggling with two concepts. One was a Christmas sequel of Trippers Through Time (Trippers 2ugh Time) and the other about a couple that solve crimes.  The former was too complex and confusing (there is a graph somewhere explaining various timelines, that proves this) and the latter was little more than a Thin Man rehash.  I looked to the side of my room and saw my €3 copy of Charles Dickens’ “Christmas Stories” I attempt to read each Christmas, rarely get past the first story. I thought about reading it again (Is November too early to read Christmas Stories? Discuss…) However A special kind of alchemy soon occurred. I remember that first story, an unknown tale known as The Christmas Carol. An Idea was born and I rushed to the computer downstairs, thankfully not waking the dogs. Two hours later, I had a first draft.

Now, I’m not going to tell you what the plot is yet. However I can reveal the following, It is a very loose retelling of A Christmas Carol, featuring many Gifted Babies Trademarks, including food, Beehive hair, cat puppets and lame jokes. In case you are thinking “this will be a pointless rehash”, (why would you think that? that’s pretty cold.) It will have some exciting elements, such as SFX and singing. It will also be the first Gifted Babies film to be blogged. Various Gifted Babies and I will document the various production challenges of Cork Christmas Carol. So check back regularly!

+ In case you are wondering what happened to the other two ideas. T2T will be shelved till the world is ready and the detective story was gutted of its best feature. A character named Beverly Honeycomb.
