Weird, whimsical and sometimes terrifying these dark tales come via short stories, scripts, essays and rambles.

This is a little corner of my world where I don’t have to film anything or draw anything or behold to anyone. Just me and my mind and the word. So be warned.

I will be posting all sort of strange and wonderful stories here in my resolutely text based adventure. So if you don’t like to read then this may not be for you.If  you have porcine ideals of taste and decency clothed in glitter, this may not be for you. If you are easily offended this my friend is most definitely not for you.

However if you like a gentle scare or guilty chuckle or a general feeling of unease and the taste of odd then you are most definitely in the right place. There are also some “straight stories” nestled in between but I’m not telling which is which.

I’ve got short stories, episodic scripts, micro shorts and more and still more to come. There are loads of different ways to read these stories from looking at different tags, using the search bar to look for something specific, looking at the contents page or something new I’m trying at the bottom of each page there will be a next story link click on that and you should meander all the way through the blog as if this blog was put together in book form. This feature is a work in progress so it may not last out, but if you like it or want to make suggestions then please do so in the comments or over on the facebook page.

So stay tuned, Kick back or lean in.  Like what you like, share what you can  and above all I hope you all come back for more.

Just don’t look on the dark web.

#businesscards #design #screenwriting #behindthescenes #makingof #sexybathrobe #nolife #mostpeoplewouldbematerbating #notme #sittingwriting #allalone #screenwriting #DarkPathMovie "Every great magic trick consists of three parts or acts. The first part is called "The Pledge". The magician shows you something ordinary: a deck of cards, a bird or a man. He shows you this object. Perhaps he asks you to inspect it to see if it is indeed real, unaltered, normal. But of course... it probably isn't. The second act is called "The Turn". The magician takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary. Now you're looking for the secret... but you won't find it, because of course you're not really looking. You don't really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you wouldn't clap yet. Because making something disappear isn't enough; you have to bring it back. That's why every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call "The Prestige". Christopher Priest, The Prestige #screenwriting too close to what I am writing right now! Motherfucker! Damn!'s a PG?!??? #DarkPathMovie. #MidnightRun #blackandwhitephoto #MidnightRun #WintersComing Time to loose a few kgs. 
#abstractphotography #artifical #colours The Frankenbeast gets power mad. Now it balances on my shoulder. #filmmaking #dslr #cameraoperator  #grip #canon #magiclantern This came today. 
Sooo exited. Sooo beautiful.  #loomis #howtodraw #backtothedrawingboard #screenwriting #DarkPathMovie part 10 releasing later tonight. Just wrote probably the most horrific scene today. This is the scene that breaks the movie to the audience and shows them how... Nope you'll have to read it to understand.
 After this script is done I'm writing a movie about pink bunnies  that live in a world without predators.  End of act two? Heading into the third and final act of the film. Heading into the home stretch now.  #moviemaking #script #horror #thriller #camerarig The Frankenbeast is taking shape. New secondhand #alphatron EVF and cage from @smallrigchina  took a gamble and very happy with the products. Cheap but not chearful. More to come... #moviemaking #DoP #cameraoperator #director
