We’re currently in the process of revamping the Bad Advice for Good Times YouTube channel and prepping for another HPL short. In the meantime we’ve moved our web series Fanboy To Farmer to its own channel so please drop by and subscribe! Here’s the latest episode:
Y’all know me, still the same old G, but I’ve been low-key, so you’ll be happy to see, we…are back. Yes, we’ve been shooting and producing, and post producing a couple of projects but we’re getting back to the mythos in a big way. But here’s a small step, not a full plunge, into the world of HPL, HPL fandom specifically. This is the first episode of our doc-series/social experiment which follows me as I attempt to lose the trappings of fandom for the tractors of labour. Sound inexplicable? It sure is, but what comes to light in subsequent episodes is that fandom has more practical implications than one would imagine. During the series we’ll also travel behind the scenes of our upcoming production The Festival so stay tuned if you want a sneak peek of what’s coming next from Bad Advice for Good Times and Affari Di Famiglia. You’ll see a lot of visual references to Lovecraftian accoutrements in episode one but we go fully into the mouth of madness by episode three so make sure to subscribe:
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.
The good people at the Lovecraft News Network interviewed me HERE! All I can say is of all the news networks out there, LNN is the most fair and balanced. What is the LNN, you ask? Well they are this:
What is the LNN?
- Do you have a preternatural interest in cephalopods?
- Do you ever lay awake at night dreaming of ways to introduce the word “cyclopean” into everyday speech?
- Have you ever looked up 47° 9′ 0″ S, 126° 43′ 0″ W on Google Maps?
- Do you know what the Cup of the Ptolemies was carven out of?
- Do you know that the most merciful thing in the world is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you are probably just like us here at theLovecraft News Network. Forget earthly politics, celebrities, and hope. This is your source for news that really matters. Enjoy!
Throw your horns in the air, wave ’em around like you just don’t care. Elder Sign has been offically selected to screen during Dragon*Con in the dirty ATLA between September 4 and 7. If you’re down on a hardcore genre tip or like to trick out your moma’s wig for some cosplay then this con better be in yo’ PDA.
If you find yourself in Uruguay from May 15 to 22 the check out Montevideo Fantastico. The Festival is the only event in Uruguay specialized in horror, sci-fi, fantastic and bizarre films. Its objective is to divulge once a year independent and generally low budget productions that are frequently considered as part of a “minor genre” and who almost never have accesss to commercial and even cultural circuits. And Casting Call of Cthulhu will be there. We still got it.
Tonight, Wednesday February 25 at 7 PM GMT, log on to Yog Sothoth dot com and watch the world premiere of Bad Advice for Good Times’ new Lovecraftian short Elder Sign. Put on your laughin’ boots, this one’s a real chuckler.
