Bad Advice For Good Times

News and fodder behind the films of Joseph Nanni.

OUR NEWEST SHORT IS OUR MOST TERRIFYING!

Not really…but insurance can be pretty scary.  You have to sit and imagine all the things that can go wrong and then fill out forms and give a corporation money every month.  Yikes!  But here’s something you can’t plan for – the gibbering madness that awaits on the edge of reality.  The third in our HPL comedy trilogy.  Prepare to laugh WITH TERROR!

A Recipe for Disaster

If you enjoyed the first episode of our new web series Fanboy to Farmer then here’s a little tidbit to tide you over until the next.  Behold the minisode;  a bite-sized bit of nerdom to help you start your day, or night, or afternoon.

The Cats of Ulthar Dance Dance

We’ve been in cave-like seclusion scheming and meme-ing for sometime now. In the past year we had our first feature length documentary about the real-life horror of Cancer air on the CBC, we finished principal photography on our web series Fanboy to Farmer, we shot some promos for good old broadcast television, and we’re putting some finishing touches on our next doc about Doctor Robert M Price called the Gospel According to Price. So we thought we’d close out the year with a bit of fun, a little cat video, Bad Advice for Good Times style, with some fun and a bit of WTF. Enjoy:

HAVE YOU HEARD THE GOOD NEWS OF THE GOSPEL?

Time to bear witness, believers. You have not watched enough documentaries and that, my friends, is a sin. But we have good news for you, the good news of Price, Doctor Robert M Price. The good Doctor has had many lives but as of today he stands with two PHDs, a love of HP Lovecraft, an advocate of the modern myths of Marvel and DC, a avid reader of the bible, but, curiously, not a believer. What? How’s this? All shall be revealed in the new documentary from the folks who brought you Elder Sign and The Necronomicon. Coming next year, this doc on the doc will delight atheists and agnostics and terrify the holy at heart. So step forward… and justify!

Awesomeness On The Way

Black Goat production design is crawling along and we have several talented individuals working away including Anthony del Rizzo, Velocity Branding from Winnipeg, and THE Dave Carson.  You’ve probably seen Dave’s Shub illustration making its way around the web – this is NOT the design for the creature in Black Goat; Dave did this before we invited him on board so expect to see something new.  In the meantime we are slowly posting character design on our Facebook page HERE so drop by and check ’em out.

Black Goat Won’t Be First

Despite all the hype around our planned period piece it won’t be the first feature from Bad Advice For Good Times.  Pre-production has begun on Black Seas, a reference from H.P. Lovecraft’s The Call of Cthulhu, and the feature is scheduled to shoot in March.  The plot revolves around a man known only as J who wakes up in an escape shuttle with no recollection of who he is or how he got there.  His only clues come from a virtual HR representative who helps J rebuild his fragile psyche.  Things take a turn for the worse when an alien presence appears aboard the craft and begins to contradict everything J believes about himself and the situation.

Fans of Elder Sign and The Necronomicon will appreciate the darkly comical script, while HPL fans will love the cosmic horror, both felt and realized.
