Point Break 2013 Precision Love Bombs Dropped!

I have been a fan of the 1991 Katherine Bigelow film Point Break right from the start and recent  news broke that it was getting the remake treatment...
We've all seen how (un)successful that can be; step forward The Wicker Man, The Fog, King Kong... but inevitability is a wonderful thing - why fight it?

If I could have worked on any film ever, it would have been Point Break. So why not the sequel?

I did a little online research and found the names and addresses of the writer, producers and executive producers and today I sent them all a good luck message.
This is truly from the heart. They're going to do it anyway, maybe I can inspire that extra something present in the original. Maybe... I can get a role in the film - afterall, I read that parts of it will be filmed in Europe..!

UPDATE: June 2016
Oh dear. That is all.

It's All Go..!

Somehow, it's been three years since my last post, and in that time, I've been studying a different qualification, a pgce, specialising in production design and art department techniques. This doesn't mean I haven't been working in, on and around films, I've just done far less of it - and introduced theatre props into my resume.

As I reread my last post of 2013, I see that I was optimistic that I'd finish the director's cut of Championship Hunt as my next venture... Well that's still the case, although I think it'll be a drastic reworking of the material and I'll need to learn and master some new tricks on Adobe After Effects to do justice to the work everyone put into it.

Living Bliss Productions has become more about design and creation of props and set pieces over the past couple of years, making such things as a baby grand piano for a musical production in York, a three spouted teapot for Alice in Wonderland at the Customs House Theatre in South Shields and a purple and blue glitter headdress for a panto dame in Basingstoke.

I have two more projects currently underway; a dog statue with a moving head and a reproduction prop for an exhibition set to travel the country if all goes to plan.

I will post some development pictures as these projects progress, in the meantime you can see my online portfolio at:
