Praise be to Pilchin!

The film team went to Edinburgh yesterday to film some sequences involving Pilchard Price and Merrin shields. Despite some nerves at the start, they did really well, and they created what may be some of the funniest material to end up in the film, so thanks to them.

It took a while for this sequence to get filmed, as Paul and I came up with way back in the first week of having moved into this flat, and we've filmed it just the last week of staying here...

Still, it does mean that all that remains to be filmed is the infamous film noir sequence, which will now be filmed in Perth over the Summer.

Rooster Cogburn, and a spin-off

This past Thursday we went on location at Balloch Castle Country Park to film the remaineder of the Rooster Cogburn documentary in which Rooster, played by Murray, searches for the infamous Manturkey, played by myself.

Additionally, Murray has fallen in love with the character so much, he has started work on a project of his own. Rooster Cogburn: Official Wildlife Expert is a wildlife documentary series in which Rooster Cogburn reports on wildlife both local and around the globe. See the website, Rooster Blogburn.

We hope to shoot "Ode to Merrard" (The scene with Pilchard and Merrin) in the next few weeks, and then the Film Noir in the Summer. Oh, and we'll do some interview segments as well. The in-movie movie review will go on hold for the time being.

I'm sitting on 4hrs of footage already, so we'll easily get something out of this.
