Zombie Video Stars

We are getting closer and closer to production. Once we get into the really, really cool stuff, we will be showing you videos galore. Videos of the make up process and videos of the set are a given. Candid videos of the cast are also on the list. What else do you want to see during the making of Autumn?

Also, we are still waiting for those of you with zombie tattoos to send pictures. We know you are out there.

Stay tuned as we have some cool things coming up that I can't tell you about yet. Oh, but they will be good.

Bloodee dig(g)s

In our quest to involve the zombie/horror fan community in the making of our film, we have come across a lot of cool people (see the 'friends of Autumn' links to the right). One of them has a cool new site, it is the Digg, Technorati,, etc. for horror fans. Nothing but Horror news, clips, art, fiction, etc...

This is such a good idea. It seems there is just way too much to sift through on those other social sites to find good and original horror content, let alone other horror fans. This brings all of them together. It is your one stop social horror content shop. And it is growing.

They have extremely cool bookmarklets too; , , Bloodee this up.

In your time between looking at our Autumn blog here and the Renegade site, you should check them out.

What the hell?

So, I have been sat at a desk to help with fan-investor mailings. What else am I supposed to do but waste time on the internet?

Ah, but look where that got me.

I am going back to stuffing envelopes...

Zombie tattoo?

Do you have a zombie tattoo? We would love to see it. If we like it we will post it here on our blog and if we really like it, we may even find a way to incorporate it into the film.

Show your zombie love! Send your zombie tat pics here.

"Autumn" sometimes feels like what I call a "clickety-click" production. Very rarely... about once every ten years... in my career... a project comes along where everything falls into place.... clickety-click. The kind of production where when you are shooting, it would be nice to have a snowfall in the middle of summer and clickety-click next day there it is starting to snow as you turn over. Things happening on the research, development and scripting of this film is looking that way. If it carries over into the production itself and on into Post-production there'll be even more smiling faces on set than usual on a Renegade production. Fingers crossed.

Why we want your feedback...

It has come to our attention that several of you might be wondering why we are taking this route in the making of Autumn. We feel that fan-bases are an enormously positive element of public involvement that can keep important fields of art, music, literature, film and television alive and thriving. Now with a billion people on the internet, this could be the dawn of a new era of fan involvement in the arts.

Our Director, Steven Rumbelow, who is adapting this story for the screen and has adapted some of the world's finest authors for performance, talks about how he thinks fan based work may change the future of film as utilizing the internet for this purpose progresses. He has often observed instances in entertainment where the fans have made a huge impact, for example, how the future of Dr. Who was unknowingly saved by it’s Australian fans in the 1960s.

Steven asked for this survey to be set up in order to get feedback from fans. "It’s a Renegade kinda thing to do things differently and we are looking to get feedback before we make the film. I don't think that this could be achieved with just any fan base but I've looked at the David Moody blog and because of the nature of the Autumn books, I see the fans as being a small but enormously positive force that could become instrumental in the success of the production. Of course, we should add that we've already answered the questions we are asking you, but if this survey changes even one of our answers it was totally worth it."

So this is your chance to have some input in the shape of the film adaptation of one of your favorite post-apocalyptic works.
