This week, with only a few days to go until the Shy Yeti Christmas Special is posted, I thought I would share with you some photos from behind the scenes on the episodes and also post an old Christmas poem which just happens to come from my book GO 4TH AND DIVIDE, which will be celebrating its 10th anniversary next year.
Next up, last week I promised you some photos from the behind the scenes on the Shy Yeti Christmas Special, which is to be entitled A VERY YETI CHRISTMAS... So here they are!!
A VERY YETI CHRISTMAS
These photos were taken during filming of this episode - although one or two were saved over from Christmas 2011! Yes, that's why I look so much more beautiful in some of the shots. *cough* The photos appearing in this episode were taken in Venice, Richmond, Salisbury, Oxford, Charlton All Saints, Belper, Weybridge and various sites in London. Photos were taken by myself, Dominic McCauley, Paul Hillier, Toby Warburton and Beverley the Receptionist from Work!!!
It's all very well showing us photos of the episode, but how's the actual Christmas film going?
Pretty well, although I have had quite a busy week or two which has meant that I haven't really had many evenings to work on the video. This week I've been getting up extra early before work (at around 5.30 a.m.!!) and working on it for an hour or three before heading into London. I think it's making a difference! I've pretty much got a rough edit done now and should get it to the right length by tomorrow morning and maybe even get the titles on. Wednesday night I intend to work on Christmassy music for the episode, but I'll also be using some of the spookycreepy music that I put together for the Halloween episodes. With a bit of luck it'll all be done so that I can load it up on Friday and then post it during the weekend!
Shy Yeti you shall go to the ball! Or something...
That's almost it now, but before I go here is that older piece that I mentioned, from GO 4TH AND DIVIDE. I've slightly revised it whilst working on the 10th anniversary edition of the book - but it's mostly the same as the original version which I wrote back in 2002.
Next week I'll be posting the links to the Christmas episode and I have a Christmas story for 2012, although these two might end up as two posts! We'll see! Don't forget to keep watch all the yeti videos on http://www.youtube.com/user/MRSHYYETI, especially all the ones that I've posted during 2012 as you could still influence which video of this year wins the award for most views this year. *there is no ACTUAL award, but just pretend there is, okay... Perhaps I'll buy myself a new pair of Converse or something!*
That's it for now, more soon!
