Melanie Light - Ep#22

July 3, 2020

We sat down with Director and all-round awesome human being Melanie Light way back in February before the lockdown was put in place and now we finally bring it to you.

Melanie not only writes and directs her own films but she is also a huge part of the Women In Horror month putting on amazing horror showcases. If that was not enough and is a huge advocate and voice for female representation in the film industry, especially in the horror scene.

Her short film The Herd won several awards including Best Horror Short at the London Independent Film Festival (UK) but don't judge Mel by the hard-hitting nature of the film. We talk a lot about her history, work, and the challenges that face not just her as a director but all women in the film industry. We do of course get Mel drawing with us and I love what we come up with.

Samuel George London - Ep#21

Samuel George London - Ep#21

June 5, 2020

This month we bring you a chat with comic book author and fellow podcaster Samuel George London.

We met Sam at True Believers (2020) and invested in his Milford Green comic books. It's amazing that Sam had never even written a major fictional story until he wrote Milford Green. He did so with the help of a structure laid out by Dan Harmon called the Story Circle and drawn by ace Finnish artist Mikael Hankonen. Sam talks about his experience with Kickstarter, how he found Mikael, delivering the final part of Milford Green, his love of a Museum in Baisingstoke and his upcoming projects which we are looking forward to.

On top of that, we make up a wonderful story that we are sure Marvel will be all over if they have any sense.

Sarah Millman - Ep#14 - Part 2

Sarah Millman - Ep#14 - Part 2

November 1, 2019

Welcome to part two of our bumper 14th episode for November with Sarah Millman.

If you have not already listened to Part 1 of this then we would advise you to go and do that. In this section we get Sarah rolling a whole bunch of dice in which she gets what is known in D&D as a critical fail! Nothing is a critical fail in our book, not even Chris's poorly drawn horselike creature. From this chaos comes a beautiful fantasy scene involving castles, princesses and a deep conspiracy. You can see all of the drawings via our social media links below.

Remember to check out NPC Tea, you can grab a copy from Sarah's Etsy page and catch her at ComiXology 205 during Thought Bubble 2019. Thanks again, Sarah. We look forward to seeing you at the convention.

Sarah Millman - Ep#14 - Part 1

Sarah Millman - Ep#14 - Part 1

November 1, 2019

Welcome to part one our bumper 14th episode for November with Sarah Millman.

Sarah is a writer and artist that we found at Cardiff MCM. It was because her comic involved tea which Chris drinks a lot of and because our initial chat with her just felt so natural we really wanted to get her in for a chat and we are so glad she said yes. We had to split this into two parts because there was just so much that we covered. In this part, we dig a bit into Sarah's history and how she feels about people believing in her work. Sarah is also a DM for a D&D group that she runs over Skype and I can only imagine how much fun it is to be in one of her sessions. If ever she needs a guest character I am sure that Nathan and Chris will be only too happy to join in.

NPC Tea is available via Sarah's Etsy page and you can catch Sarah at Thought Bubble 2019 @ ComiXology 205. Stay tuned for part 2 of this interview and hear what is rolled and what we draw.
