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.

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.

 

 

DAVE CARSON JOINS BLACK GOAT

We are pleased to announce that Lovecraft luminary Dave Carson will be helping us realize  some Elder God nastiness for the upcoming feature Black Goat.  If you are not familiar with Dave’s work, shame on you, then go check it out HERE!

Dave seems excited, we say, “Be careful what you ask for.”

Black Goat To Open For Troll Hunter

If you haven’t seen Black Goat on the big screen then you haven’t seen Black Goat.  If you haven’t seem Troll Hunter then you should.  Why not kill two birds with one stone and see Black Goat before you see Troll Hunter at the Dark Bridges Film Festival in sunny Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, on Friday, September 29, at 7PM.  Troll Hunter is from Norway and Black Goat is heavily influenced by their grim and frostbitten kingdoms.  It’s sure to be a great night out for you and the wife.

Guillermo Del Toro To Pass Judgement On Black Goat

As is if making insider films in a sub, sub genre of horror and science fiction, loosely based on the writings of a relatively unknown misanthropic pulp writer from the 20’s/30’s wasn’t hard enough, now we find out that a giant of the horror genre, and arguably one of the best filmmakers of the 21st century, will be judging said films.  Guillermo Del Toro will be judging the short films at this years’ HP Lovecraft Film Festival in Los Angeles, Friday, September 16 and Saturday, September 17, at the Warner Grand in San Pedro.  This will also be the world festival premiere of Black Goat, so you may want to see it here before all the nerds start asking, “why does a coureur de bois have a viking axe?”*

*  We’ll be happy to explain why when some gives us a bucket of money to make the feature.
