For our Italian friends…

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on June 24, 2009 by deadofnightmovie

So, I was emailed these by someone, but I think I saw them credited to regular contributor Antoblueberry.  If so, thank you, Anto.  We’ve been unsuccessful getting our own copies from L’Espresso.  Gioy (our resident expert in all things Italian) and the good folks at Bonelli all seem very happy with the way the article turns out.  And I think there might be one or two fans of Brandon’s on here that enjoy the article, even without being able to read Italian.  :-)

As Anto also said in a previous comment, this article announces officially some news that I had hinted at in a previous post, that Bonelli would be handling the graphic novel extension/adaptation of the Dead of Night tale.  I put the “extension/” part of that in there because we’re going to be doing something very, very different to bridge the worlds of the Dylan Dog comics and Dead of Night.  We’ve got a really great writer that ALL Dylan Dog fans will know (name to be announced soon…) writing this bridge for us and EVERYBODY concerned is excited about how it is shaping up.  Bonelli will be publishing it worldwide and Platinum Studios will be handling it in the US, so save up in the meantime.

BTW, I heard from a retailer that the Dark Horse collection of the Dylan Dog Case Files has completely sold out in the US!  So grab your copy soon, as they may not be available very long.  It’s a really great read for those that don’t already know Dylan.

Cheers and please let us know what you think of the article!

One more small update

Those of you in the San Diego area who happen to be attending Comicon International this July might want to save some time for some Dead of Night goodness.  More details to follow, but there will be LOTS to see there.  Woo hoo!!!

Just a suggestion…

If you’re a fan of Brandon’s or Dylan’s, you might want to keep an eye on http://espresso.repubblica.it/.  It’s a great magazine.  They do great articles.  Sometimes, they even have wonderful exclusive pictures.  ;-)

What now?

Sorry I’ve been MIA for the last week, folks.  I got back from New Orleans only to find I needed immediate oral surgery.  Won’t go into the gory details, but it wasn’t fun and didn’t leave me with a lot of “umph” to want to do much but lie there in pain.  I know, kind of breaks the whole “tough stuntman” image, eh?  Not that those who know me really ever had that image, mind you…  :-)

So where do we go from here?  The cameras are done rolling, the costumes have been boxed up, and my own elbows and knee-pads are put away.  What’s next?  Surely it’s just a matter of doing a little editing and then we’ve got a movie.  Week or so, right?

Not exactly.  Now things really start happening.  Sure, the fun part is done, or at least what I consider the fun part, but now things start rolling on two major fronts.  The first one is that Kevin and our editor, Paul Hirsch, have to basically lock themselves in an editing bay for the next six months,  pouring through two months of footage and connecting the dots while working with the music and sound department to make sure everything fits together seamlessly.  (If you don’t know Paul, don’t be embarrassed.  I didn’t either.  But I DO know a little film he won an Oscar for back in 1978 and quite a few movies he’s done since sit in my DVD collection.  Bragging rights to whomever names the film first.)

The second front we’ll get rolling on soon is the major PR and Marketing push for the film.  One of the reasons my hands have been kind of tied here is that the PR/Marketing Machine that’s been lined up for the film has been waiting until we lock down a release date before they start barraging you with photos, clips, etc.  They don’t want to start releasing things too early or people will lose interest in the film before we get close to the actual release.  I know I’m not talking to the Dylan fans or Brandon fans or Dan Forcey fans (Hi, Mom!) out there, as you’ll all go see it regardless and be just as excited if you see a clip now as if you saw it two months ago.  (Well, maybe not my fan club, as she…ahem…I mean THEY find movies “just too loud these days”.)

So I’ll be keeping you all up to date on what’s happening on both fronts as well as sharing some stories from the set now that all is said and done.  Rest assured, oral surgery aside, this will remain THE place for all Dead of Night news.
