Frankenstein's Cat / Alan Gilbey workshop


Alan Gilbey's writers workshops was, as mentioned previously, a tremendous success. Just pulled these images off his website http://www.alangilbey.com/ As Alan's write-up says:

I’ve just got back from running a devising workshop with the writers, creators and producers of the newly commissioned BBC show FRANKENSTEINS CAT - which I’m story and script editing. A fine and fab group of people spent two intensive days in an old Transylvanian castle ( near Liverpool ) letting me lead them through an intensive timetable of devising games, brainstorm sessions and embarrassing drama games on the grass outside. Still they forgave me and everyone went away buzzing about this great new show.

Top chap and hugely funny writer in his own right. Plus BILKO is his favourite TV show, too! GOOD MAN!

Pictured in the foreground left to right is Ian Carney (wordsmith), Ian Culbard (blacksmith), Lee Pressman (another writer on board) and Jackie Edwards, our producer. Then there's a picture of the Cat itself, let loose in the grass outside the castle...

Does, doesn't it. Sculpted by Colin Batty, the same chap who did my RON GO BONGO maquette. The cat was at first a puppet film proposal but things have changed a lot since then...

Finally some proof that this isn't all just the deranged ramblings of a mad man!!

Here's a tip,try not focusing on the peoples feet in the background and instead on the model cat :)
This is a nice sculpture,from the same man who's sculpted kits of Aliens and Predators,maybe they could all fight !?
