Outcast Productions: Abertoir 2011 Film- Day Two Info

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on January 17, 2012 by Hayley's Horror Reviews

Day Two of our Abertoir project consisted of filming footage outside the Arts Centre of me presenting information circulating the Censorship debate; which occurred on the festival’s first day. The controversial screening of “The Human Centipede 2” (2011) was also discussed. There were a few issues in regards to the shoot as we had to change our location three times, firstly due to exams taking place in the Great Hall, followed by chirping seagulls and howling winds near the steps and Hugh Owen Library. Finally we obtained our footage outside the Arts Centre bar and everything ran smoothly from there on. We have a fair bit of footage to gain by the end of the week before we begin putting it all together, which will feature information on some of the films screened, the special guests and the events that were held. James Moore is currently in the process of editing some “Making of…” footage which will be up shortly so you can see our on-set/location antics! Stay tuned as there is much more on its way!

Quadramania Presents….”Abertoir 2011″ Coverage Prep.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on November 8, 2011 by Hayley's Horror Reviews

We have had a very productive day thus far. The Abertoir Horror Festival will be kicking off tonight at 6pm with a screening of the Vincent Price classic “House of the Long Shadows” (1983); in preparation, Quadramania interviewed assistant festival director Rhys Fowler, who specialises in the marketing field for the festival. Hayley Alice Roberts conducted the interview, asking questions on how Rhys became involved in the festival, his experiences with other film festivals, his favourite sub-genre’s of horror and what he’s looking forward to most this year. Elliot McIntosh directed the interview as well as filmed it, Ben Lee was on sound, while James Moore provided all the making of footage and stills. Following the interview Quadramania as a whole recorded some introductory footage outside the Aberystwyth Arts Centre, to explain to you guys what we’re up to and what’s ahead. We filmed this part of the coverage in pairs and rotated roles, between Hayley and Elliot presenting followed by hilarious double act we like to call “Moore and Lee” giving their spin on things. During editing we are planning on inter-cutting between us to provide you with entertaining and informative coverage.

Below are some stills taken from today’s antics:
