Rain

The third and final sound effectless video. Reading, raining and robing.

Stan The Man

A friend of mine had a Marvel comics themed fancy dress birthday party the other night. Not wishing to try to squeeze into some lycra I decided to go as Stan Lee, co-creator of Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Thor and the X-Men among others. Easily recognisable from his many cameo appearances in the film adaptations of Marvel comics.

Here is my Stan Lee costume in all its glory:


I can tell you're impressed.

Here's a spot the difference of me and Stan:


It's uncanny, isn't it?

Sadly, unlike Stan's, my moustache did not last the night.


"Excelsior!"

Kettle Mettle

Another conspicuously silent video crying out for the addition of sound effects. It wasn't intentional, but it looks like we were trying to make an advert for Clusters, which to be fair are a chocolate I had never heard of before and maybe could do with a bit of marketing...



Featuring a cameo by Sylvester McCoy.

"Kidneys! I've Got New Kidneys. I Don't Like The Colour"

This is the Twelfth Doctor's first line from The Time Of The Doctor and these are the last annotations from the draw my lives Doctor Who video that I wrote for Bad Teeth.


This is Peter Capaldi's Twelfth Doctor and in just over a week's time, we'll get a chance to see what he's like.

Caretaker

Here is the first of the little silent films made for students to practice putting sound effects to.



I'm expecting doors shutting, keys jangling, footsteps on gravel, creaky gate and sweeping, but to be fair they could put anything they want over it.

"I Did Seven Drawings And We Saw A Dead Cow"

So says Digby in the Eleventh Doctor story The Snowmen. Here's the penultimate set of annotations for the Doctor Who: Draw My Life video that I wrote for Bad Teeth.


Matt Smith was the incumbent Eleventh Doctor when this was written. Shown here with the Doctor's increasingly convoluted family tree.


Fishfingers and custard from The Eleventh Hour, the Silence from The Impossible Astronaut and A Good Man Goes To War, a Weeping Angel from The Time Of Angels and Flesh And Stone and Van Gogh's Starry Night seen in Vincent And The Doctor.

Swept

This photo is from filming yesterday on a short film for students to use for Foley and sound effects.


I look like I don't know how a broom works.
