Weird. My boyfriend worked on this.
Hey guys! Take a look at the new film I'm working on, The Information Paradox. It's an experimental sci-fi blast on a small-budget, and any help would be greatly appreciated! ›
If you donate $5 (£3.23!) I’ll write you a thousand word fic on the pairing of your choice. There’s an archive of my writing here. For $10 you’ll get the fic AND see your name in the credits, officially becoming a part of independent British filmmaking! And for $50 (£32.34) you’ll get a DVD of the film YOU helped to make, with a bound, hand-illustrated copy of your fanfic. Heck, if you donate ANYTHING drop me a message and we can work out a fic for you, and I’ll throw in a poster of the production signed by the cast and crew. Just hit my ask and get donating!
P.S. Signal boosts will be hugely appreciated and paid for in hugs <3
This has to be one of the worst films I have ever endured in my entire life.
And this was glorious. Wonderfully executed, expertly performed - Ralph Fiennes is a powerhouse, absolutely in his element, and Butler’s the perfect bouncing board for all his manic venom, and Vanessa Redgrave handles a grotesque character with grace and elegance. DELICIOUSNESS. SHAKESPEAREAN DELICIOUSNESS OF THE HIGHEST ORDER.
This film tore my heart a new one. I am genuinely amazed I survived the experience. I’ve never seen two characters so beautifully formed.
Jean-Clement Sorret was the digital colorist for the film, and is one of the few instances where a colorist received a spot in the opening credits. The film contains many coloring effects and “density shifts” of lighting to reflect the moods of the characters. For example, when Hayley gets angry the colors would be edited to be of lower frequency. One effect used which, as far as the director is aware of, had not been done in cinema before, was to brighten the lighting in filming and recorrect everything down in post-production. This allowed for facial details to be visible even while having a darkened atmosphere
The Immaculate Conception of Little Dizzle
Youthful grungy janitors eat chemically altered cookies which give them hallucinations and abdominal pain and eventually lead them to shit out bright blue fish-like creatures.
My life depends upon seeing this movie.
This is the snapshot that Mr. Lisbon takes of the girls before they go to the prom. Note that Lux’s hand looks like she is holding a cigarette, which is how she is found when she dies. Therese’s eyes are closed, and she ends up overdosing on sleeping pills. Mary coughs right after the photo is taken, and she dies by putting her head in the oven (and, in the book, is the only one who acidentally survived). Bonnie’s arm looks like a noose around her neck, like how she commits suicide.
I wept watching this trailer. I feel like I’ve been waiting for this film my entire life. My inner 12 year old just peed herself.
Note: Don’t look this thing up on IMDB. The conversation on the boards will make you want to kill everything you love.
To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar, 1995.
Truth be told, I didn’t like it all that much…but goodness, how sassy and lovely could Wesley Snipe get?!

The Story Behind The Empire Strikes Back
Star Wars nearly killed George Lucas.
The director’s ambitious space saga, which nobody understood nor cared about (not even its cast) looked set to be a disaster of intergalactic proportions. During production in 1976, the special effects department was struggling with its groundbreaking technologies, while unbearable heat in Tunisia had tempers rising…
