Back On Set
Great to be back on set last weekend making another film for Relationships Scotland. It's another co-production with Jim Hickey of Freedonia Films.
We were filming with a cast of seven in two houses in Edinburgh. A BIG thank you to Film Edinburgh for their advice on relevant filming locations. I'd imagine we'll see the results of our labours in 2017.
Check out our previous films for Relationships Scotland HERE.
Having A Blast
We've had a blast this year at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe performing Princess Pumpalot: The Radio Show – Live on Stage! at Sweet Venues in the Grassmarket.
A BIG thank you to everyone who attended the 2016 show. We had great audiences including a number of "regulars" or "Pumpalites" as we sometimes call them.
The cast of #Fart2016 was Julie Heatherill as Princess Pumpalot, David Mairs as Guffy, Robin Mitchell as Cookie Crumble and The Toilet of Truth as himself.
The Director was Liam Rudden of LRStageworks (who was partaking in his 33rd Edinburgh Fringe) and the Stage Manager was the fantastic Sabina Smith.
The 2016 show was a Cadies Productions/LRStageworks production sponsored by Mandragora Productions and Arcus Animation Studios.
Bedlam Film Festival
Our documentary film Breadmakers is to be part of the Bedlam Film Festival during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Breadmakers will be screened on Thursday 18th August 2016 as part of a Scottish Documentary Institutes' Night of documentary films.
More details on the Bedlam Film Festival Site.
A Morphing Cast
Our colleagues at the Princess Pumpalot site have been having fun and games playing with an APP called Morphy.
Three actors (Niloo-Far Khan, Lindsey Lee Wilson and Julie Heatherill) have played the part of Princess Pumpalot: The Farting Princess since its inception at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August 2013.
