Kickstarter for "Demon Hunters: Slice of Life"
Dead Gentlemen Productions, authors of "The Gamers" series of films, have announced the Kickstarter funding campaign for their new anthology series, "Demon Hunters: Slice of Life" (als known as S.O.L.). The series will be a sort of cross between "Supernatural" and "The Office", going heavy on the comedy side of things, and bringing back some favourite characters from both the original cult films they produced in the late '80s while still in school, and from later works like their "Brotherhood Orientation Video."

A Little Indie Film News
Zombie Orpheus Entertainment has many irons currently in the fire.
The first is a completed project which will soon be availavble for viewing on iTunes and Vimeo; "Attacking the Darkness." This feature length mockumentatry comedy movie follows a couple who decide they can no longer stand by while role playing games tempt the nation's young into devil worship, so they start making a film to show the dangers of RPGs. The film is a 'behind the scenes' view on the production of this fictional film. I feel that I must strees its fictional nature, because some seem to think ZOE's recent such works are meant to be taken literally.
The second project is to be one in a series based in a new shared universe, called "Strowlers." The world is much like our own, but for the presence of magic. ZOE hopes that others will also jump onboard and make productions of their own, also based in the Strowlers universe. The Kickstarter for the first project in this series, two short films shot in Ireland and Mongolia, and a pilot episode which has already been shot in Seattle, can be found here:
Time to Switch Gears
Racing season is well and truly over so now I've got a few months to work on something else. Namely, chainmailing. I've got a few large projects, two for friends and one for myself, that I need to dig into. Then there's the jewellry making. I want to put together asmall stock of pieces which are representitive of the range of styles I can do.
I also need to think about upgrading my ring cutting rig so that I can work with tougher metals like stainless steel, nickle silver, and carbon steel. My current ring cutting rig reliably cuts aluminum, brass, and other softer metals, but really isn't up to the task of cutting harder stuff. If I can make a rig that will somewhat reliably cut harder metals, I can make the fabrication of something closer to actual armour financially viable. Ideally I would like to manage stainless steel. This means also setting up an automatic lubrication rig, for which I have already purchased a pump. I might have to farm out creation of the cutting base to a machinist, if I find that a need to make it from aluminum, but I'm hoping to be able to continue using hard plastics which I can work with myself.
