Sneaking in to seek assistance... hopingi_bananas doesn't mind ...

I'm writing a special fic to promote Casimir Effect and make fans of Torchwood aware of the characters etc by means of a sneaky crossover that can be posted all over the place ... but I need images to show the CE characters so that readers can get a handle on what the unknown characters look like ... I have an idea for a banner and can give more details to anyone interested in helping me out ...

The idea is that by posting images, links to the official website and updates about the progress of the project with each new chapter I can help increase awareness ... I would naturally, be utilising 'cliff-hanger' technology and advanced Ianto-whumping to ensure continued readership.

Thanks in advance :-)

Happy New Year! This is the year that Casimir Effect will be completed and hit the film festival circuit!! :)


Fundraising news
The year has started with good news, the production team reached the fundraising target. The next date for fundraising is 1st May so they've got 4 months to raise £3000. During the next few months there will be new merch to buy including the behind-the-scenes book (which is due to have lots of pictures).

Behind-the-scenes pictures
The last set of behind-the-scenes pics are now on the website, these are from day 11 as sadly there aren't any photos from the final day of filming - the team have said that this is because there was only minimal crew for that day (most of the cast, including GDL, had finished their scenes by then). The photos for day 11 feature; Zoe Mills, GDL, and Peter Owen Willliams at Mir Steel.

There's only one day left until the deadline for the current fundraising target, the production team are currently £170 from the target of £9,000. If you can help please take a look at the merch and see if there's anything you'd like to treat yourself to, or if you have some spare change use the donate buttons to make a donation :)

On Location
A small bit of trivia... For anyone who's seen the latest Doctor Who Christmas special this week you may not have recognised them but "A Christmas Carol" shared two locations with Casimir Effect; the Coal Exchange and Mir Steel.

Fundraising update
There haven't been many items up for sale on eBay this month and as Gabriel Strange explains in his latest post this is because he's been laid up with flu. This means the Casimir team are currently £476 away from their target for 31st December. If you're able to you can help with donations or treat yourself to some merch take a look at the webstore or CafePress

New pics
Behind the scenes pics from day 10 of filming, these were taken at Mir Steel in Newport. There are a few shots of Zoe Mills as Alice and Gemma Lloyd as Iolanthe.

    Finally, the last part of the Casimir Effect panel at Chicago TARDIS. This is the Q&A although it's mainly As as I couldn't hear the Qs ;)

    The Q & ACollapse )

    This post covers the trials and tribulations of filming at the Coal Exchange (as well as little bit about Scene 15).

    I haven't included pictures in this post, instead there are links to the relevant galleries on the Casimir Effect website.

    Almost over now, all that's left for the next post is the Q&A...

    This post covers the sections of the panel about the music for the film, progress of the film, and using local talent.

    Video and moreCollapse )

    Still to come - filming at the Coal Exchange and the Q&A.

    This is the section of the panel that covered the cast and characters (as well as Bob's hair), I've also included the discussion about John Jenner's (Alfred) appearance in Torchwood.

    The panel discussed the characters while there was a slide show of stills from the film. I've included a couple of images here just so there's something to look at (can't promise that these are the same images as those used during the panel)
    Images and discussionCollapse )

    Still more to come including; filming at the Coal Exchange, music, progress of the film, and the Q&A.

    This is the first of the posts from the CE panel, a lot was covered and rather than keep you waiting ages whilst I typed it all up I'm going to post it in several chunks :)

    Other posts will be covering the cast and characters, filming at the Coal Exchange, music, progress of the film, John Jenner's appearance in Torchwood, and Bob's hair... This post focuses on Dr Bob
