Humanus, the film we are extras in, has been released. Its a comedy, musical, romance, mystery, horror, zombie movie. Made by members of inter-theatre last year, it stars people of different abilities and including Niel Baldwin (Nello) who was the subject of the BBCs ‘Marvellous’ film.
I don’t know if it’s out on general release but it did win some awards at a film festival. If you want to look it up its called Humanus, directed by Steve Mitchell.
Last year my hubby and I were extras in a film called Humanus. Since its release we haven’t heard much about it but we knew it was going to be entered into a film festival.
Now I’ve just seen this on Facebook. It’s a shame about the font Flicks film festival uses! But the film won in five categories in the August monthly awards. Best Acting Ensemble, Comedy, Romance, Horror and Musical. Wow I’m amazed. Well done to everyone involved.
When we went to the showing of Humanus, the film, last year, we got dressed up in fancy dress and make-up to look like zombies. I wore an air mask over my face to look more interesting. While I was putting the make-up on I decided to take a photo of my reflection in a mirror. I like the creativity of whoever made the frame around it. It was made of lollipop sticks stuck together making a star burst around the mirror. I converted it to black and white to make it more atmospheric.
By the way I’ve never been able to get the red face paint out of my hubby’s shirt!
Just got back from seeing a film we were in as extras. It was actually shown at a proper cinema which was great. The cast, writers, singers and crew are members of Inter theatre a community theatre company. This is a group of disabled actors who have come together to make a feature film. Featuring Nello (Neil Baldwin) who was portrayed by Toby Jones in Marvellous, a film about his life. It was funny, included a tragic romance, singing, zombies the waiting room for heaven and hell and horrific murders. Directed by Steve Mitchell, it is ground breaking because it stars and includes many people who are disabled but who show just how they can be involved in things like this. It may have a premiere in London (fingers crossed) and also may get put on one of the streaming networks.
