Twisted Showcase Part 3

This is my final part of my blog series on Twisted Showcase. You can all breathe a sigh of relief.
This will be the only time I'll get to do a look back at a conventional series of Twisted Showcase I guess, don't worry there is more coming later in the year, but with a bit of a format change. Keep an eye on the site for news on that. Go here to do that check now  Twisted Showcase

So, Part 3 focuses on the last two episodes of Series 1. Probably the two I had least to do with, even though I wrote one of them.
Bob Dracula came through our first ever script call out. An idea which we felt wouldn't get much coverage or lead to many submissions. we were wrong .It's where Twisted showcase started for us really, with that call out we realised that writers at least want to eb writing this kind of thing. We accepted the script Bob Dracula from the writer Leslie Cummins, who went away and expanded the idea a little bit, and Rhys who loves the black comedy side of the series jumped on making this film, and like that it was done.

The last film came from the other end of the spectrum when the deadline for films was approaching and one film we were trying to develop from writer Stephen Marsh fell through, again and again. It fell on me, well it didn't I guess but someone had to write something to film quick and simply. Hence the idea for The Devil Inside Her, which although has a stunning central performance is the most flawed thing I've ever written, in my opinion anyway, and I'm probably my biggest critic, so you may like it, but I wouldn't like to put together such a flat film again.  With Twisted Showcase taking me more into directing and thinking more visually about the script, I'm quite keen to have something more visual than a static webcam shot as the entire film. Still, a lot of people said they find that episode really creepy, so must work in some way.

Let's not forget the Guardian Guide named Twisted Showcase in it's Top 25 web TV shows, so it's all looking good and getting exciting for our upcoming films. It won't be long now.  Brace yourself!
