Re: Challenge TV 'talked endlessly' about bringing back Knightmare

I still don't think that aspect alone would be as challenging financially or technically as it was back then. I am one of the few that had some exact numbers regarding the financial costs of both series 8 and geek week. Unless I've missed something the cost hasn't changed (taking inflation into acc...

Re: Challenge TV 'talked endlessly' about bringing back Knightmare

These days, I believe, that side of it would be pennies. Every half-hearted youtuber uses chromakey nowadays, it's as common as mud and certainly in no way expensive. I'm afraid that the cost of doing it properly is ludicrously expensive, even today. Knightmare's use of chromakey isn't a simple bac...

Re: Series 4 graphics reimagined

Awesome stuff :) I suppose Tim Child's vision was always for Knightmare to be like a videogame, so I guess, technically, the show was merely fulfilling its original brief by moving more over to CGI. That's generally been my take on things and I think he's even said as much. More recent incarnations ...

Re: Blackpool meetup in June-August 2019?

Myself and Claire aim to meet early afternoon at Blackpool North station - anyone else on a train coming via train with an arrival time that's similar for us to stay around for? Aye. Due into North at 13:20 . Though very much hoping that tonight's chaos at Euston is sorted by the morn. The last tim...

I'm in, done, dusted, sorted.

Who's up for our triennial game of 'spot the turd' off Blackpool Pier? ;D
Is he coming as well, then?
Nope

Re: Blackpool meetup in June-August 2019?

A few people requested that we book a slightly nicer hotel than the one I had in mind, even if it means paying a little more. After discussing it with the six people that had already booked, we've settled on a hotel that charges £40 per person per night, but has a much higher rating. There's no easy...

Re: Blackpool meetup in June-August 2019?

It is done! The hotel I was aiming for had all their rooms bought out during the night. I thought it was therefore best to book something now, so I did. Unfortunately, it's a few pounds more than I had originally suggested (£140 per room for two nights). The rooms are twins. Having learned from las...

Re: Blackpool meetup in June-August 2019?

Okay, I've begun the hotel search and I've found one that can accommodate us all (twin bedrooms) at about £36 £30 per person, per night (excluding breakfast).

Re: Blackpool meetup in June-August 2019?

IT IS DONE. The votes are in and have been counted, and the requested day is: 9-11 August . This was quite a popular date, and has the potential to be one of our bigger meetups, which is very exciting. I will have a look at accommodation costs and see what we can get. If you didn't vote, or didn't v...

Re: Blackpool meetup in June-August 2019?

Oh yes, lots and lots of votes now.

In fact, I'm going to be closing this in a couple of days from now. So if you'd like to have some input as to when the next meetup occurs, your chances are fast running out.

Vote now!
