Casting for the lead character 'Zoe' has commenced. We have had a great response to the casting call and very thankful to those actors who have sent us their showreels/applications. We are currently working our way through each one this may take us a while. An enjoyable part of the process.

Tonight we are all meeting at Rowe's studios to discuss and work on the costume for the 'creature'. Over the past few months Amanda has been busy sourcing material and sewing together a cloak and hood. Ian has been helping to 'age' the material by using sand paper, a hard surface and a lot of elbow grease. The end results are fab. Photos to follow after tonight's meeting.
