After all the stress of the Kickstarter campaign, the real work begins.

Director Matthew Stogdon sat down with his principal cast, sound recordist and the costume designer.

The meeting doubled as an informal introduction session for the actors that didn’t know one another, allowing them to get a handle on their characters and how they might interact with each other.

It also served as an ideal opportunity for Harriet to lay out her plans for the costumes and take various measurements.

Of course, everything was watched over and documented by director Adam Gunton, who will be shooting the behind-the-scenes documentary. This also gave him an opportunity to speak with the cast and crew present to go over his vision for the ‘Making Of’ movie.

It was a great meet and everyone is suitably excited for what’s ahead – which at this point is an exceptional amount of prep work and rehearsals!

More to come soon.

The Titan’s Eagle: We Did It!

After an incredibly long slog, The Titan’s Eagle is fully funded! We were asking for £2,500 and ended up with £4,355! A truly astonishing total!

Kickstarter are going through the pledges now, gathering money from everyone and in light of this, I thought I’d take a second to look at just how far this film has already spread.

I hope you’re all looking forward to seeing this film as much as I am making it.

Thanks again everyone!

Support The Titan’s Eagle on Kickstarter

For the most part, we here at Cheesemint fund everything ourselves, footing huge bills for a wonderful finished product.

The Titan’s Eagle (the latest short film by Matthew Stogdon) is so ambitious, however, that it requires a KickStarter campaign to get funded.

The story takes place in the early 1600s and tells the story of an alchemist who is caught in a time loop, which slowly starts to take a toll on his body.

CheeseBites: The Dying Art Of Fairy Godmothering

In the busy, hectic world of the modern woman, there no longer exists a cherished place for the most wondrous of magical helpers, as this unfortunate Fairy Godmother finds out.

Another fine CheeseBite, this week featuring the acting talents of Laura Jane Watling and Jack Purling as you’ve never seen him before.

Huginn And Muninn

For the past five thousand years two ravens have been reporting the actions of mankind to their master, Odin. Fed up with the current state of affairs, they form a mischievous plan.

Starring Tim Maytom and Moira Hickson, Huginn and Muninn combines Emma-Jane’s love of mythology with her disdain for the world we live in. Win win really.
