Fear, Anger, Pain

Sunset Studios (Namely; Duncan Eastwood, Richard Thomas, & Myself) have an entry for the Make My Horror Movie contest called Fear, Anger, Pain which is set 1855, New Zealand.

Deep in the Coromandel forest three Pakeha gold prospectors and their Maori guide, Kepa, are attacked by an unseen force. While fleeing they take refuge with a group of local Maori, led by the fearsome Huinga, who are stockpiling weapons for a rebellion against the government. After members of both groups are killed by the invisible creature it is left to the remaining Maori and a Pakeha to form an uneasy alliance in order to survive. Is it a curse on the local Maori or the Pakeha’s presence that has incurred the creature’s wrath? And why does the creature remain invisible to some but reveal itself to others?

Word to InDesign Tutorial

Want to work with word docs in Indesign? Perhaps you get content from clients/colleagues in word format and you need to lay it out with tools that are up to the job, well watch and learn.

TIP: If you have a client/colleague who is working on the word doc, get them to save it to a network/cloud drive (e.g. dropbox) and link the same file within inDesign, that way your client can update the word doc and all you need to do is open the InDesign doc (or update the link) and the changes will happen auto-magically!
