Fun with a meat cleaver

Andrew and I are heading for a film festival in Ballycastle this Satuday, to deliver a presentation about our filmmaking exploits – specifically the area of doing special effects with little or no money. We’re in the process of preparing some material. I thought I’d share this semi-successful experiment we tried yesterday …

    That’s some amount of laughing you were doing, Darryl!

    By the looks of things, that hedge of yours needs a good trim (I mean the hedge we can see at the back of your garden, not that mop flopping around on the top of your noggin). 😉

    I came across this today and thought I’d let you know of your success… poor Isabel heard it and came running across the room, “Mommy!!! Hold me! I heard a dinosaur!!”

    Excellent! I’ve been called many things, but “dinosaur” is a first. 😀

    Darryl this is Evan Griffiths, the friend of Jeff Davis that you met in Springfield, Missouri. Just wanted to say I loved the little knife trick, very funny. Actually I plan on using some of your film tips in an upcoming movie I’m working on with some friends of mine, Jeff Included. I will show it to you when we are done. I hope it is good. First film for all of us. Write me back if you can.

    Take care,

    Hi, Evan. Great to hear from you. I hope you and Karen and Jeff are doing well. Can’t wait to see your movie.

    That was funny.. I was actually sitting at my computer, with headphones on.. and laughing.

    Must say, I was also getting strange looks from my children!
