Andy Wooding August 2018 update – To Trend on Twitter official poster, upcoming premiere and pictures

Hello you extravagant caterpillars,

I hope you’ve had a wickedly wonderful summer so far and are being 100% lovely to one another.

Andy Wooding black and white

Since my last update, other things have happened. Which is why I’m writing this. Life is just so simple.

To Trend on Twitter
To Trend on Twitter is currently being submitted to international film festivals and we are now a mere couple of weeks away from announcing the London Premiere screening date/charity fundraiser, while doing some minor polishes.

The film is in aid of the amazing charity CLIC Sargent who do wonderful work fighting for, and supporting, young people with cancer and their families.

In the meantime, I’m highly excited to be sharing with you some brand new, super slick Susie Mumma posters for the film, designed by the talented Sean Strong!

Check them out below.

To Trend on Twitter – behind the scenes photos
While preparing To Trend on Twitter‘s press pack, I stumbled upon some lovely, little candid black and white photos taken on set by the sneaky, skilful Andrew Simpson.

Candid is my favourite so I’m sharing them with YOU.

New Stuff
As well as Mr. Moonlight being now ready to shoot, I’ve also written two new shorts – one comedy and one romantic comedy – and am inching towards the finish line with the script for feature film Budget Thieves. Looking forward to sharing more on those very soon.

The next update will feature the To Trend on Twitter trailer and – wow, really? Actually? – the confirmed London screening details!

Until then.

All yours,

Andy Wooding – April 2018 update – Mr. Moonlight, Music and the Raindance Independent Filmmaker’s Ball

Hello, you wickedly wild, Portuguese geese,

I hope you’re cruising beautifully at your favourite altitude.

Andy Wooding – photo by Andrew Simpson

It’s been a fun couple of months since my last update. I’ve polished off a couple of projects, continued with some others, recorded new music, interviewed some cool people and enjoyed a little slot on the radio!

Fly on down for details! 🛫✈🛬👇

Mr. Moonlight
Our comedy project Mr. Moonlight is getting closer and closer to shooting. The series follows naive, clumsy fish-out-of-water Edward Moonlight as he attempts to navigate holding down a job in the busy, stressful city of London to look after his sick grandma. We’ve sketched out 12 episodes now and are putting together the teaser.

Here’s a slender snippet of test footage for your seeing circles. 👇👇👀👀

Soho Radio – This is Now Agency presents
I had the pleasure of being invited to appear on my good friend Adam Gainsborough’s Soho Radio show ‘This is Now Agency presents’ to chat about To Trend on Twitter and other exploits, as well as talking full-throttle nonsense throughout the show and enjoying some live music in the studio by the brilliant China Bowls.

Have a saucy listen at the link below! 👇👇🔊🔊🎧🎧

China Bowls, Andy Wooding and This Is Now Agency’s Adam Gainsborough



Raindance Independent Filmmaker’s Ball
I also had the pleasure of interviewing some lovely performers about their work, including X Factor‘s Sinitta, Motorsport presenter Kiri Bloore and In the Long Run actor Jimmy Akingbola…in my own silly, rascaly way, of course.

Have a little look at some snippets below 👇👇🤭

New Music
I’ve been working on a ridiculously broad batch of new music for my album Run and am now finalising the demos before recording the whole thing! A few song titles I can sneakily share with you: “Love Effects”, “Money Makes Us Cry” and “Yes You Are.”

Another pleasure is working with Too Many T’s genius Leon rhymes on a collab/side project that straddles rap, electro and guitar madness. We’ve sewn together a string of songs and are looking forward to showing them to you all soon!

I’m also putting together some cover versions of tunes by artists – old and new – who I like. Below is the beginnings of my rendition of Kali Uchis’s “Dead to Me” from her debut album Isolation, which I’m hoping to complete in the next couple of weeks.

I’ve been following her for a few years now and I highly recommend you check her out! Kali’s worked with some amazing people including Tyler, the Creator, Gorillaz, Thundercat, Snoop Dogg, Steve Lacy, Daniel Caesar and Bootsy Collins! 



Right, gotta go, y’know?

Yours gorgeously,

Andy Wooding Feb 2018 update – New photos

Hello, you outrageous Spanish sandwiches.

I’ve just done a shoot with brilliant music and portrait photographer Eloise Campbell, who has photographed a number of amazing people including Hans Zimmer and Rudimental on tour, several tribes in Ethiophia, Namimbia and Mongolia as well as recently coming second in the Guardian Travel photography competition.

Here are the photos. It was a really fun one.

Andy Wooding Feb 2018 update – To Trend on Twitter, more films and music

Hello you candy-flavoured caterpillars,

I can’t believe it’s been a whole two years since I last posted an update on my filmic/musical/comedic life.

Weeeelll, looooooads has happenededededededed.

To Trend on Twitter
The film is finished and a cast and crew screening in London, UK, will launch the festival run and release of To Trend on Twitter. The film follows single mother Susan Jenkins as she rises to fame on Twitter for having a terminally ill son.



You can see clips and read loads about the amazing To Trend on Twitter cast – and the project as a whole – here. Stay tuned for details!

Mr. Moonlight
I’ve been working on a series of comedy shorts following naive and clumsy fish-out-of-water Edward Moonlight as he attempts to navigate hustling, bustling London and hold down a job to look after his puppy and sick grandma.

We’ve scripted three episodes so far and have shot some test footage in preparation for full production. I’m very excited about this one.

As Edward Moonlight

Budget Thieves
And I am now gearing up to make satirical comedy feature film Budget Thieves. The script is nearly finished and then we move on to storyboarding and casting. This is my most ambitious project to date, in so many ways, and I’m looking forward to taking it on.

Music
After a break from musical things to focus on To Trend on Twitter, the past year I’ve also been fortunate enough to have time among everything else to make music. On top of the two original songs being released for the film, I Am Susie Mumma and Hashtag, I’ve now recorded a rough demo for what will be my album Run.

And I’ve also been making some tunes for a side project with my glorious friend Leon (from Too Many T’s, check them out!) Planning to share some work in progresses on my Facebook page soon, so do stay tuned if you like!

Well, that’s it for the minute. Very excited about all this. Thanks for being gorgeous.

BByyyyyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

December 2014 update – To Trend on Twitter, art exhibition and LOOPer’s “It’s All We Are” release

HelLO LOvers of LOve and LOllipops!

You’re looking incredibly edible, today, if you don’t mind me saying. I love what you’ve done with your hair!

Just writing to tell you about a couple of new videos….

TO TREND ON TWITTER

The year is done and we’re almost through with dark comedy To Trend on Twitter. Here are some snaps from set and, below them, a sneaky little preview of what’s to come.

ART EXHIBITION

In association with Cooltsalon, I had some art exhibited in Sofia, Bulgaria for a ‘cultural exchange’.

Basically, wherever we are, whether it’s in buildings or on streets, online or in magazines, we’ve all got advertisers, governments and business owners telling us to do and not do a lot of things. So I made my own signs telling people what to do – for art, y’know?

I collaborated with terrific To Trend on Twitter poster designer Sean Strong on the designs which you can see below.

“IT’S ALL WE ARE” MUSIC RELEASE

I also helped my good friend and To Trend on Twitter collaborator Igor Garanin (AKA LOOPer) with a new deep house song ‘It’s All We Are’ which has just been released via the awesome Silk Music.

Here’s the video:

 

The song can be downloaded via iTunes here and via BeatPort here.

 

CRISIS

I’m spending this Christmas period helping homeless people with the London-based charity Crisis. There are hundreds sleeping on the streets each night, every year and Crisis offer shelter, food and cleanliness to those often unable to experience the lavish lunches and enjoyable envelope of human warmth that so many can at this time of year.

Crisis - Andy Wooding

If you are at a loose end or just want to help the London homeless this Christmas, even just for one night, then check out the Crisis cause here and sign up!

 

That’s it from me – have a great time and see you in that big, beautiful, baby girl that we call 2015.

Andy Wooding

Wintry kisses and warmest wishes to you all,

Andy

Augustus Updateus 2014 – To Trend on Twitter

My my, sugar pie – hasn’t it felt like forever?

Step into my office, shut those pretty lips and listen.

Andy Wooding - To Trend on Twitter

 

It’s been a busy couple of months and – living, breathing and sunshine aside – most minutes have been dedicated to To Trend on Twitter

 

TO TREND ON TWITTER

Thanks to a long list of wonderful people, we’ve been able to shoot a significant amount of the film with some top notch talent behind and in front of the camera. It’s really coming together, although the hardest parts are yet to come. If this project is new to you, it’s for Kids with Cancer charities (as well as to entertain) and you can read a breakdown here.

Now, some things for your eyes to feast on. Here is our ‘teaser poster’ – designed by the excellent Sean Strong:

And here are some pictures from the set, taken by the awesome Andrew Simpson – except the top one which is the super Simon Phipps:

There are many, many more juicy pictures for you to see here.

We’re halfway through filming now and are aiming to wrap in the next few months but, as smooth and happy as everything looks in those photos, we REALLY could desperately still use your help. If you have a skill/specialism that you think could help the film or ‘know somebody’ then get in touch.

Otherwise, you can buy premiere tickets and other goods here:

Your help is appreciated…

OK. That’s it. Meeting adjourned. We’ll pick this up another time.

All yours (in a totally mine kind of way),

A

May, me, mi, mo, mum – May News (2014)

Hello, you fabulous human being with the ability to read,

I hope this finds you happy, healthy and well. Just typing words into sentences to tell you what I’ve been up to in the last couple of months.

 

Andy Wooding 2014

 

TO TREND ON TWITTER

I’ve been working hard on To Trend on Twitter (short film, for charity, more info here). We’ve had help from all over the world – London, Liverpool, Newcastle, NYC, LA, Copenhagen, Aalborg, Sydney, Paris and many more. So many people have been so tremendously generous and leapt to our help – I, and the rest of the team, are so thankful for it. Thank you (see!)

If you feel you have a skill you can lend – whether it be graphic design, photoshop or you have access to studio space/locations or you’d like to make a financial contribution in exchange for premiere tickets – then please, please, do get in touch – anything and everything is appreciated.

We’ve staged a few paparazzi moments across London . Here are some photos of ‘Susie Mumma’ on a couple of nights out in Soho.

The scenes-to-shoot list slowly shortens and the good news grows. We just shot the intro and outro narration with a very special comedy guest and a ‘TV spot’ with excellent comedy rap act Too Many T’s – check them out.

Throughout this, I’ve been working with excellent cinematographer Jordan Cushing  – check him out too!

Here are some pics from the shoot:

Magical March update – To Trend on Twitter teaser et al (2014)

Hi-de-hi you swanky pigeons,

All of your eyes look gorgeous. Wish I could be these words as you’re reading them.

 

TO TREND ON TWITTER 

The second teaser trailer for TO TREND ON TWITTER, with actual footage from the film, has landed. I’m not lying, look….

 

You can see the first teaser trailer here and if you’re new to the project you can find the full lowdown here. We’re hoping to complete the production stage in the next few months. We have some fairly expensive and grandiose scenes to shoot, what with celebrity culture in the story and all. I’ll keep you posted.

Best friend forever? Loving acquaintance? Suffering family? Want to help? Click here to see how you can help us make this happen!

 

MONSIEUR PAPIER

Monsieur Papier got his gloriously golden green-light at the beginning of the month, so the animation process is already underway. As it’s early days we don’t have anything to show, so here’s a storyboard by the gorgeous and wonderful artist Oli Gots.

 

Monsieur Papier - storyboard

 

There’ll be more goings on going on soon (inc. some music videos and new projects) but, for now, I’ve got a plateful of things to do.

 

Long live love,

Andy Wooding
