The Advantage of Digital Media with HOD TV

HOD TV is a service that I find myself fully behind, as a huge fan of horror and thriller and with plans to create work around this in 2020, this is something I can see being a positive move and the team have made huge strides in a short time giving the market something fresh (and a little dark) that will change how we view indie film. From a (lost) creative stance this is a perfect avenue for us to explore.

Part of this will be taking our partner concept of The Lost Creatives forward and setting things in motion with our other partners (more on this soon). Our primary focus will be on horror and thriller projects for commercial sale.

There is something about being scared that really appeals to people and the team behind HOD TV really tapped into this with a kind of glee and business savvy that I can appreciate and it has opened my eyes to the potential of being a part of the film industry again this time on my own terms as a filmmaker and makeup artist. Moving forward we are not just looking at the potential of this market for ourselves but for our fellow artists and creators.

HOD TV and The Lost Concept

When we started the Lost Project we had a very definitive vision in mind. That still stands but we are going adding to that narrative and building something bigger alongside our partners with plans in motion to expand on the creative process we have alongside the narrative we have currently running.

HOD TV and The Lost Concept

Our plan has always been to go down the production route creating TV and Film projects under the Lost banner. The Lost Project is still at the heart of this and we are now building something more in the background with The Lost Creatives being our collective name for the team members.

HOD TV when we found out about it, was an ideal fit for the biggest part of our vision. We all love Horror, thriller and dark movies. The creative process for this type of project is something we are all passionate about and finding that the team behind the HOD TV concept were focusing on this we immediately opened up a dialogue with them and we are now partners to the service (and very proud of it).

Over the course of September we will be launching our new site for Lost Creatives and revealing more of our plans for the future which will include: short films for the festival circuit to advance our company name, TV series, a feature film. We will of course be making full use of the Amazing brands and companies who have supported us to date such as Oh My Lash and brushwork cosmetics (promo code JamesC) . Stay tuned for more of the brands we use in our work and new names you need to look at…..

Additionally, we are planning to add more to our out of the box kit including Titanic FX brushes and some of the hurt boxes by Brian Kinney to augment our character alongside premade pieces from Buy and Apply (Aka Nimba Creations).

*We will be working to support British brands as much as we can no matter where we decide to shoot our projects.

Little Green Street a Chaplin Homage

Little Green Street Film Poster

There is something about the short film Little Green Street that feels less homage to a legend and more a modern reworking of a lost script. Charlie being respected for his script writing, gags and creative capacity that could and frequently did, create more stories than was possible to film in the time he had, it does make you wonder about the possibility of this as a viewer, which is a hallmark of the films team who have created something that could easily be original to the man himself and deserves kudos on this level.

The silent era to some degree in its early days could and is often referred to as being the Chaplin era. With companies emulating and creating characters with both male and female actors playing the part heavily inspired by the Iconic Little tramp. and a little close scrutiny we can see this in the film, although it is artfully played to a point where you don’t notice it overtly.

Little Green Street has a similar vibe of this emulation but the hallmarks and clarity of the character is captured sympathetically and does (in my own case) leave me wondering was this a fresh film paying tribute to a legend or perhaps a lost Chaplin……The characters have all the same traits and signs that become synonymous with the Great Chaplin himself from the Keystone(esque) cop to the wilting woman who ensnares Charlie with her demur feminine whiles.

Created by Alexandra Queen is an actress/filmmaker based in London, UK. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Drama/Theatre Studies from the University of Huddersfield, England. Alexandra works as an actress/filmmaker for her own film production company, founded in 2015 when she decided to make her debut short film, ''DID''. She also works as a part-time assistant at a modern art gallery. She is currently developing the sequel to ''Little Green Street'', as well as adapting the short story ''Captain Bones'' by Eric Maple, based on folklore stories and urban legends. She is inspired by auteurs who have established their own vision and personal style in cinema history, such as Charlie Chaplin and Alfred Hitchcock. Alexandra's great ambition is to establish her own distinctive style in film making, as well as in acting, that will inspire and influence other women filmmakers and actresses around the world.

Little Green Street is an interesting short that has the nostalgia angle well covered and gives a nod to a creative genius of yesteryear whilst still having a modern feel with the digital shoot, cleverly structured the overall feel of the film is pleasant and heartwarming a true tribute to the man behind the tramp and worthy of watching for the smile it will create in its simplicity.
