The Fan Carpet are delighted to share the news that Moranic Productions, the production company behind the acclaimed series Mina Murray's Journal and the iHorror Award Nominated short Connie have announced that comedy legend Sally Phillips has secured the role of Helen, in the eagerly awaited BLOOD SHED, which is currently almost half way funded over on Kickstarter!
Sally is a comedy ICON and writer instantly recognisable as one of the forces behind Channel 4’s award-winning comedy sketch show, Smack The Pony. She has also starred in the three smash hit Bridget Jones films and The Decoy Bride, which she co-wrote, and HBO’s Veep with Julia Louis-Dreyfus!
Sally has been a near-constant presence on British television, from I’m Alan Partridge, to Hippies, Green Wing, Miranda, and Parents. Sally co-starred in the 2016 film Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, as Mrs Bennet. Since 2004, she has played the title role in the BBC Radio 4 comedy show, Clare in the Community.
Sally’s co-star is to be announced over the next week! There are a limited number of scripts signed by the cast, and props and costumes, available as perks!
About Blood Shed
Jack loves a bargain. And he loves sheds. When he buys suspiciously cheap second-hand parts online to build his very own dream shed, he and long-suffering wife Helen find they’ve got more than they bargained for: a killer shed with an appetite for blood. As the body count rises, and the shed’s ferocious appetite grows, Jack is faced with a horrifying dilemma. A comedy horror about a man’s twisted love for his shed… that eats people.
The team need to raise £10K to make this beautiful nightmare a reality, with a Kickstarter campaign live from 27th February - 27th March 2017. Currently 43% funded in just over a week, but full target must be met for the film to be made.
This Film MUST be made! PLEDGE NOW ON KICKSTARTER
Perks include signed goodies, exclusive extras and downloads, set visits, screening tickets, props, Executive Producer credits, writing workshops, script feedback, and even a piece of the shed!
James Moran, co-writer and director, will already be familiar to many fans of the horror and comedy genre through his writing on the movies Severance, Cockneys vs Zombies and Tower Block, and internationally acclaimed TV shows such as Doctor Who, Torchwood, Primeval and Spooks. His other work includes 5-time Streamy Award nominated web series Girl Number 9, and several short films which he wrote and directed, including the award-winning hit Crazy for You (Best Horror/Sci-Fi, Crystal Palace International Film Festival), starring Arthur Darvill and Hannah Tointon, which screened at huge festivals across the globe and is now part of an anthology feature film.
Moran says, “I’ve always loved 80s horror, and I’m really excited to unleash our evil beast. For years, we’ve seen people getting killed in or near cabins and outhouses, but we’ve never seen a shed itself actually doing the killing - until now!”
Cat Davies, co-writer and producer of the film, has worked professionally in production since 2005 at the BBC, ITV and as a publishing executive at BBC Worldwide managing the release of some of the UK’s biggest comedy titles. Cat is an expert in making the most of every penny and managing productions end-to-end. Cat is also an award-winning filmmaker, with her last short Connie starring Catrin Stewart, playing the international festival circuit and currently nominated for a prestigious iHorror award in the US. Cat is co-founder of Moranic Productions, with James.
Davies says, “we are desperate to bring this unique tale to life to delight horror, comedy and classic monster fans. We really need your help to make this happen and shoot the film in late April. We cannot wait to share Blood Shed with the world.”
Ben Foster (Torchwood, Thunderbirds Are Go, Happy Valley, Our Girl, Scott & Bailey, Banana), a BAFTA-nominated composer, is on score duties and firing up the synths NOW!
