Part of "Cthulhu Team"

On Tuesday September 14th around 7 p.m., I became a servant of the Old One the Great C’Thulhu. As many of you know our Project Space Squid was to produce a short film with an interactive part based on the stories of the great mind of H.P Lovecraft and as you guessed, I was producing along with Patsy Tomkins, “The [...]

Why should I call C’Thulhu?
Part of the set

Truth is why should I? He didn’t know who I was and to be honest with you,  I didn’t know too much about him either… After been writing for a while about the Project “Space Squid” and “The Call of C’Thulhu”; which is the interactive film I’m working on, based on the work of H.P Lovecraft, I realized that actually [...]

Things for the Ritual
Old books predicting C'Thulhu coming back

After we had the “Ritual” (a.k.a Script) in our hands, we had to make a really detailed list of the things need it to call C’Thulhu. We started with the most important ones: The Location and the Servants (that would play Joseph and the Professor roles). We though those ones would be the hardest ones to get. How wrong we [...]

The Call cannot be undone
I am your servant, great C'Thulhu

I never imagined that I would be the one “Calling C’Thulhu”. If you had asked me a few months ago what would I be doing on June 3rd, my answer would have been completely different. Six months ago I was practically still doing my Visa process and finishing all the paperwork necessary. And now I’m producing films… it can’t get [...]

I thought that the day before shooting it would be busy, but not as busy as it has been. Still, I’m very optimistic about [...]
