The Dunshelm Players: Amber - COMING SOON BUT HELP NEEDED

Post by HStorm » Wed May 21, 2014 5:48 pm

Update on progress with The Techno-Colour Tales. Episode 5, called Amber, will definitely be the concluding part of the series. To this end, I've had to cut a number of scenes from the early script-draft to make sure I don't have to split it into two parts - I just couldn't bear the series to get any longer.

This is making the job of writing the script probably the most difficult ever, as removing scenes while finding other parts of the story to 'transplant' important information into is quite a trick. The first draft should be ready in the next few days to pass around to the cast though.

This episode will feature Peggatty (that's the 'other' Grey Sister who was only ever seen throwing fireballs at passers-by from her broomstick - not Heggatty or Mistress Goody), who has not been cast yet. If anyone would be interested in playing the part, please let me know on this thread. As the character was never really defined at all by the series, it should be a role that an actress will have a lot of freedom to interpret.

The Gatemaster is also likely to make an appearance, though not a major one. Martin Harder currently has 'bagsies' on that role, but again, if anyone else is interested, please let me know and we'll keep you on standby just in case.

Interestingly, two characters who won't be in it are Treguard and Majida. (Although that's no big deal as they didn't feature in the first part either.) Anyone who's been following the series should have an idea why they're not in this one.

Please note that The Techno-Colour Tales are meant as a prequel to a story called Tech-Topia, which is likely to be the last-ever play in the Famous For Retreating continuity, so Amber isn't likely to end on a very conclusive note in itself.

More information on when recording begins will be posted to this thread soon.

Hi Martin

I would happily be a standby for the Gate Master. Looking forward to it! :)

Excellent.

That just leaves Peggatty. Any takers?

My Girlfriend Roz aka Gretl on this site is interested in the Peggatty role Martin.

(She'd post herself but her net connection is being a little scatty at the moment.)

Cheers, Ricky, we'll do an audition for her ASAP.

Sorry I haven't got any roles for you at the moment. For series' consistency, I need to keep Jake in the Skarkill role for now. But we'll slot you back in the role when Tech-Topia is made, you have my word.

No worries mate.

Just a heads up, at the moment Roz needs to use my Recording system to do lines so will have to give her leeway on when she can get lines in.

Ricky, possible change of plan regarding you getting a role. We know you don't like the character very much, and it's only a very brief part in the story, but would you be interested in playing Raptor? He only appears in one scene, and only gets two or three lines, but it's better than nothing. Available if you're interested.

LOVELY. ;D


Do you need my e-mail address? As I rather think you have my old one and I changed it a bit back.

I'll add you to the convo in the morning then.

What's Roz's surname? I'd best add her to the 'Meet The Players' page on the website.
