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

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.

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,

December Update –

Dear Mrs/Mrs ‘Who it may concern’,

Just writing you all a little filmic update before Santa comes along and steals much of the world’s attention. The diva.

Andy Wooding

 

TO TREND ON TWITTER

Shooting began, last weekend, for satirical short film To Trend on Twitter. The story follows a mother’s rise to fame on Twitter for having a terminally ill son. The shoot swam swimmingly and we’re all looking forward to putting on our goggles and flippers for the more elaborate scenes in 2014.

Here are some photographs:

The actress pictured is our lead Keeley Jo-Jupp who I highly recommend, as well as Tyrone Atkins (pictured with Keeley), who I’ve worked with before on Letters to Vanessa.

 

MONSIEUR PAPIER

I’m glad to announce that Monsieur Papier (a short animation about a piece of paper trying to escape from a writer’s grasp) will be animated by the very talented, San-Franciso-based, animator Adam Bucceri and his team throughout 2014.

Here’s a quick clip from one of his pieces:

We’re just finishing up the storyboards with the wonderful Oli Gots. The initial boards were started by the excellent Alex Demetris but, we’re pleased to say, it looks like he’s found a home for a comic he holds dear to his heart ‘Dad’s Not All There Anymore’ so he has gone on to pursue his dream.

Here’s one of the Monsieur Papier storyboards, in case you’re new or just deleted it from your brain:

Join Monsieur Papier on Facebook for treat-like updates.

THAT’S IT for now. There’s probably more but life’s too short to sit here writing to you lot all week.

Oh…and of course – I nearly forgotteneded. We’ve still got our secret feature on the boil. But that’s a story for a less legally-forbidden-to-talk-about-it day.

All the best and none of the worst,

Andy Wooding

NOVEMBER UPDATE – AFM, Monsieur Papier and other wild horses

Hello darling,

You look unbelievably gorgeous today. And how pretty those shoes!

Just finger-tapping a little line or two about what’s going on in AndyWoodingVille.

Andy Wooding - director writer

Since the Summer (when I showed some storyboards from Monsieur Papier and announced To Trend on Twitter) things have come together quite nicely.

 

AFM + Top Secret Feature

Our team are now out at the AFM talking to sales agents, distributors and co-production companies regarding our top secret feature film. We’ve worked hard over the prior months and now have an extremely detailed storyboard (designed by the excellent Sam Mardon – check out his work!), have a full (near frame-by-frame) animatic of the entire film and are now in the process of attaching talent.

STALL storyboard (storyboard artist Sam Mardon)We’re aiming to shoot in Spring 2014 and are looking forward to making announcements soon.

Attending AFM and want to meet? Drop me a line here.

NB/ Shakeldimes Productions are not looking for any additional projects at the moment

 

 

Monsieur Papier

Final talks and agreements are being made with our animators for this fun family animation about a French piece of paper trying to escape from a writer’s typewriter, so stay tuned for announcements.

It’s set to be an international co-production produced between the UK,  Europe and the US.

Andy Wooding - Monsieur Papier Animation

We’re halfway through the storyboarding process and animation will begin in January 2014.  The film will be ready for its festival run in January 2015 – a long way away, yes – but we’ll be keeping lots of little updates and visuals and clips coming your way throughout the year.

Keep updated with Monsieur Papier here.

 

To Trend on Twitter

The storyboarding process (performed by the excellent @artistgots) is nearly complete and we’re gearing up to shoot initial days in December for this satirical short about a mother who rises to fame on twitter for having a terminally ill son.

Andy Wooding - Film - To Trend on Twitter

Final shooting will take place in February 2014 and the film will be submitted into the international film circuit. All the film’s profits will aid the cause of children with terminal illnesses.
