‘The Village in the Morning’ is funded

Whew! After several weeks of email, Twitter and Facebook begging, we met our target to successfully crowdfund our film, ‘The Village In The Morning.’ It’s wonderful, but I have now officially used up all my favours.

We’d like to thank all the people who’ve made this possible, and here’s a short video doing just that.

Meanwhile, follow the project’s development here. Shooting starts September 2015.

Kickstarter for ‘The Village in the Morning’

Hey folks. The crowdfunding campaign for the forthcoming comedy-horror film, ‘The Village in The Morning‘, which I wrote, is up and running here. You can read about the film, and, if you like what you hear, give a donation, via Visa, AmEx or Mastercard, or by PayPal to jamesbeharris(at)gmail.com. Donations can be as little as £1, and every penny helps. And of course, all monies are refunded if the campaign is not successful.

Please be in touch if you have any questions. And please, spread the word.

‘Gone Girl’: Unofficial trailer

International performance artist and my flatmate, Paula Varjack, and I have been at it again, producing one of our parody film trailers. This time we take on the Ben Affleck/Rosamund Pike domestic seether ‘Gone Girl.’ I’m particularly proud of this one, mainly down to Paula’s superb work on the technical front. Incidentally, we have a rule making the trailers to never spend any money on them.

Check out Paula’s website here and also our YouTube channel here. There will be more parodies in 2015. And in case you’re wondering – yes, we do do requests. Currently I’m agitating for our next parody to be ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’, which Paula assures me is a terrible idea.
