Fox News finally got it right. Preparation and Strategy are key. The much loved CDC (who ironically, as they may have damn well be the ones that concoct the super virus (*twist!*) warns the public to prepare for the Zombie Armageddon!:

The Lazarus Complex…

Like playing with matches, lighting brambles to keep warm, sometimes things spread with epic proportions and consume forests of thought.

Originally I had planned to create a short that provided some back story to the Lazarus phenomena that would be more on the spy/thriller paradigm, but after great consideration, failed attempts at securing actors and redrafts, I felt I would need to treat this film with more care and the only way I could do that was to sever it from being a part of the Lazarus Rising‘s canon. Main reason being, the storyline, not having the brazen impact of horror, but more of the tension and subtlety  you would find in you favourite spy /thriller, I felt warping the script to fit the Lazarus Rising‘s paradigm would be too much of a restriction rather than a bolstering element.

So when all is said and done, Merchants of Quietus will be treated as a film in itself, rather than a promo for Lazarus Rising. But this entry is to just brandish the flag and show the origins of this short’s short. Bringing life to other ideas. As a creative it is just a great experience seeing something you create transform and grow, and creative 101 has to be never be too married to an idea. At times the very thing you consider to be a strength turns out to be a hinderance.

We filmed MOQ on the 15th of February, and it was a good set, with some amazing talent to say the least. Some known personally to me. Others I’ve met for the first time. My humble thanks for helping out, gang.

A website/Facebook page for the short will be set up, so be sure to look out for that in the coming weeks. I’ll put a link up for you all to see soon enough so you can have a look at recce/production pics and story art. Til then, stay tuned and continue to spread the word of Lazarus Rising like a plague.

We make our stand here. Hamburger Hill.

British-Industrialised War Propaganda

I always found Britain’s ‘Keep Calm’ poster to be oxymoronic. Condescending even. Bold white type against a burghundy, blood red background telling  ordering you to keep calm, and carry on. Never mind if you were starving, your rations finished and bombs were dropping like flies. On the broader scope of things, few people know that the Nazi Propaganda machine was directly influence by Hitler’s observation of Churchills talent to dazzle and razzmatazz the British public in WW1. Remember before that time, the British public generally hated didn’t have strong feelings for the French, and admired the work ethic and reservation of the Germans, who seemingly pulled themselves out of a Great Depression. By the time Churchill did his propaganda slight of hand, British people now hated the Germans and were fighting alongside the French. Ah sheeple.

That impressed Hitler, who then took what he saw and created, along with Goebbels, a vaster, more organised propaganda ministry. The Principles of Propaganda, one of the most significant offsprings of the evil Nazi propaganda machine is still evident today;  politicians, advertisers and corporations still keep a page our two with them like a little red book (hidden anyway).

So,  war being all about deception- as Ping Fa would have it- I thought I’d add some brutal truth and have an honest war for once. Not for land, resources or some clandestine reason. Just good ol’ evolutionary survival.
