Well, first off I just wanted to thank everyone for watching the show. You guys and gals are the reason I do this and I appreciate you all.
Ok, on with the news.
I’m taking this week off to recharge my batteries after working quite a bit on episode 100. However, I’m not just resting on my laurels, I’ve been working on lots of other things to expand the website. Now don’t worry about me pulling time away from Good Bad Flicks, I have no intention of that. Good Bad Flicks will always be the main purpose of this site, I’ve just got some great other projects that I wanted to share.
1) The Four Daughters of the Apocalypse
What started as a sort of goof trailer has grown into something else entirely. Originally, me and my crew filmed this as a spoof of how ridiculous sitcoms have become. The concept was these four girls were direct descendants of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. One time in the 80’s their fathers came to earth by accident because the world was supposed to end but didn’t. While there, each of them knocked up a human and these girls are the immortal offspring. They are stuck living in a suburban neighborhood while waiting around for the apocalypse to come so their true potential can be revealed. In the meantime, hijinx ensue.
Since the Friday the 13th tribute is finished we started focusing on this more and a friend and I have come up with some great ideas. The trailer is now being edited as a trailer for the comic and possible animated series. Much like Keith’s Tales from the Crypt recaps, this is going to be another element for the site. My friend is an experienced animator and we may just keep the comic one thing and do an animated series as something else entirely. We are in the beginning stages right now so who knows what direction this will go.
Here is a sample of some early concept art for the girls. It’s quite different from how the appear in the fake trailer. We’re going for a sort of Teen Titans meets anime look.
Here is a sample comic. We are just messing around with it at this point so we’ll have much more solid look and tone once we officially launch.
2) Good Bad Games?
I mentioned this a while ago but haven’t said anything since. I’ve been working on a side project on the side (derp) for a little while and should have it ready in the coming months. Basically it will be the good bad flicks formula only applied to lesser known video games. Since video games take a lot longer to finish than a movie, this series will only be every so often. The first episode is going to be about the forgotten Sierra Adventure game Manhunter New York.
What will episode 2 be about? I have no idea.
Why do I have 2 of them?
3) The Friday the 13th Rifftrax
I have the structure down and now I want to go though it again and work out the pacing. After that I’ll be recording, editing and putting it up. It’s turning out to be quite good, if I do say so myself. I hope it goes over well because even though this has been a lot of work I would like to do more.
4) Future Shorts
My crew and I are planning on filming something else in October so most likely expect to see another short sometime in the not so distant future.
5) Reviews for Shadowland magazine
I’ll be writing reviews for the quarterly sci-fi/horror magazine Shadowland. My first review will be in their August issue, which should be shipping soon. You can check their website here.
That’s a lot of stuff! I’m hoping to get these finished sooner than later because I really enjoy sharing with you all.
As far as what is in store with Good Bad Flicks, well, I’m getting back to my roots with some good old fashioned horror.
