AND RAINBOW ROWELL IS WRITING THE SCREENPLAY.
GUYS THIS IS ALL CAPS NEWS GUYS.
Please please please please please…
All I ask is for Park to actually be played by someone 1/2 Korean and for Eleanor to actually be heavy (and not Hollywood “chubby”).
Rainbow Rowell being on board as screenwriter is a good sign, but I’ll be keeping my fingers and toes crossed until there’s a trailer and release date!
Yes, it’s official Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftax’s Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett are returning to TV to make fun of some of the National Geopgraphic channel’s programming in Total Riff-Off. And we’re proud to debut this first-ever clip!
Looks like these will be like the educational shorts that they’ve done, except a lot longer. I can’t wait!
I don’t know how these ended up as the auto-fill words to follow “librarians are” but I think I’m okay with all of these. I don’t know how we can be moral agents and subversive, but I guess that’s where the “hiding something” part comes in.
Found this gem in the MX (train newspaper in Melbourne)
Never thought of using spoilers as a classroom management tool. The possibilities…
Reblog this image to show your support for Doctor Who!
So many tough choices here, but obviously Doctor Who FTW.
“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a science fiction show with a tendency to include historical authors, must be in want of a Jane Austen episode.
Okay, I may have teared up a little reading this headline.
Seriously though, this could all be one big bluff to keep fans guessing, but Clara’s personality would work well with Jane (that is, if Gatiss writes her well) and Capaldi’s Doctor… Who knows? I certainly would love to see how Jane’s dry and sometimes acid wit plays off of the Doctor’s eccentricities.
Ooh! I would love to see the Doctor and Clara meet Jane when she was a young woman living in Steventon and just beginning to write her juvenilia. Boys boarded at the house as students of her father’s, so perhaps some mystery could originate with one of them? Or maybe something to do with her brother Edward around the time that he was adopted by the Knights.
Gosh, I just may have convinced myself to write fanfic.
Nine years of Doctor Who: Rose (26.03.2005)
Getting my celebration in a half hour before it’s over…
Happy (Other) Doctor Who Day!
Some of my Tumblr friends might be familiar with a directing series on my personal channel, I Didn’t Write This, in which I take short excerpts of poetry and literature written by other people and adapt them as a directing/filmmaking exercise. We did an episode in which I adapted a short excerpt from John Green’s Looking for Alaska, since we had already recorded the audio for the Kissing in the Rain trailer.
A few weeks ago, I decided to finally check out Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl. I’d known about the book for a while and had been putting off reading it because I knew it would hit far, far too close to home (I’m a filmmaker whose creative origin story is tied pretty heavily to writing Harry Potter fanfic.) Reading Fangirl was like finding a long lost diary I’d forgotten I’d kept. I read it in two nights and fell completely and totally in love with these characters and the worlds they lived in, both in fictional fandom and IRL. Since I Didn’t Write This is my way of playing with source material I love, I knew I absolutely had to do a Fangirl episode of IDWT.
I want to direct this feature so badly it hurts YOU GUYS ASDLKFJLSDK FLERMMMMMMMM.
I reached out to a few fanartists in the Tumblr tag because I thought it might be fun to use actual Fangirl fanart in my fangirl-directed fan-adaptation, so thanks goes to toerning for the sketches on Cath’s desk and doctorhooper for the fabulous poster design on the wall! We shot one scene adaptation and a few would-be promo stills as well. Much love to the always wonderful Mary Kate Wiles and the awesomely talented Denver Milord for being my Cath and Levi.
This episode of IDWT might take another week or so to come out while I work on Kissing in the Rain (which everyone should go watch Mary Kate being awesome in), so keep a look out and subscribe to my personal channel, maybe? If you like literary adaptations and shippy short films, it might be your kind of thing.
And just because it’s topical, hey look, here’s my old fanfiction.net profile. #nostalgia
I got to pretend to be Cath for a little bit thanks to Yulin. I loved the book and hope you’ll enjoy our take on it!
WHAT THIS IS THE BEST
This is fairly amazing.
Ugggh! The waiting is going to be so hard!
