Default Spooky Castle Film

For those who haven't heard, a group of people in Britain are making a film series out of Spooky Castle (with permission).

Any thoughts on the matter? My only current dislike is their pronunciation of Bouapha, but meh...it's still awesome!

Those aren't zombies! They don't have the signature lolling tounge and white shirt and blue jeans! And the brown shoes!

EDIT: Oh, they're the Black Crows of Narth. :/

So, will there be any Super Zombies or the Thing in these shorts??

No bald head!? No pumpkin-hate shirt!? Meh, it's still cool. *wonders if they'll be any pants of power*

Sleepless Hollow, anyone?

There's already a short film- oh, that's Sleepiest Hollow.

Anyways, I think that it might get made.

Am I seriously the only one who's exited about this? All things considered, I think it's great! Sure, if you played the game, then the Black Crow of Narth is a little off topic, but it seems to be a sort of prequel to it. I don't think they know of Spispopd, or Dr. Lunatic. They seem to be basing it solely off Spooky Castle, and I think that it's quite cool. It's nice to see someone out there making the effort at least, I mean, honestly, could you do much better? I think it's awesome, and I don't understand why you guys don't. I think all they need is a bit of funding, and a little community spirit. C'mon guys! Lets help!

Hey all

I'm largely responsible for the film so can answer a few questions. Yes there will be Zombies, the Countess (though not a vampire), Luna Chick and even a great big Spooky Castle and hopefully one day The Thing.

In developing the story for "The Black Crow" we worked backwards a long way from Bouapha standing at the gates of a castle with a bald head and wearing the green t-shirt. We've got a pilot episode written in which there is a flashback to Bouapha being given his hammer as well.

We could have just acted out the game but creatively that's a very limited outlook and there were several questions we asked in developing the story:

Who is Bouapha? Where has he come from? Who are the people around him?

My big concern with the film was having the humour in, and that's a fine line. "The Black Crow" is dark because of the story but as we move away from that it gets a lot lighter and the humour will (hopefully) be there. We're currently looking for funding for the pilot and if we get that there will be plenty of Zombies.

I've been playing the games for years, including Dr Lunatic and Sleepless Hollow and made sure the rest of the team were introduced to the games as well. All feedback is great and any suggestions/ ideas you have are most welcome. And finally, we've been sent an audio clip with the correct pronounciation. We won't make that mistake again!

Best Wishes
Giles

Now I am much more excited!
Unfortunately I've got no money to donate. Unless you accept Yerfbucks :P


I look forward to seeing what happens with this.

I really like it! I don't see anything wrong at all with the movie (I mean, anything that makes it bad). Actually, I think this is one of the best things that have been made involving a Hamumu game!

I was going to say that before I saw the post

Anyway, I saw that you need funding. I'm not sure if I could help, but I'd want to know how we could donate, and if you have a estimate of how much is needed. Some information is always helpful.

Sounds awesome...I hope to see The Chase. Also about donating, I can donate, it's just a matter of my parents allowing me to or not. I just need to know these things: How much do you need and where do I donate? Can't wait for the pilot

Quote for truth, I'd love to know how insignificant what I'm sending is before I send it, and how to send it too.

Yerfdog Re: Spooky Castle Film

Thank you all for your positive responses and offers to donate but I don't want to be taking people's money. We're going to approach production companies and film and art funding bodies to try and raise the money to film the pilot.

I'd like ideas on which characters and monsters you would like to see, which settings and any other ideas you can think of that we can include.

The Black Crow of Narth cost around $290 to make, which was mostly rental space, drinks, refreshments, props and costumes. We're looking for quite a bit more to get past the limitations on character numbers and locations so we can get a really polished production. We'll be approaching companies on both side of the atlantic to try and get it seen by as many people as possible.

Best Wishes
Giles
