Vultures – Bonus Footage: Date Preparations

April 16, 2009

Episode 4 of Vultures dealt with dates: Poisoned ones. But not the ones you eat. The ones you go on. With a ladyfriend.

“The Case of the Poisoned Dates” hit the internet last January and in case you didn’t get enough of that story, here’s some bonus footage featuring two missing scenes and one extended take. In it, Vultour ineptly prepares for his faux-date with TY Work Experience girl, Janine Drew, whilst Dan McGrain nervously practices his introduction to Jane. Tennyson’s plans are less romantic as he plans a trip to the picturehouse. Hopefully this snippet will make up for the serious lack of Fred Bass and Spade in Episode 4. Enjoy!

Vultures - Pat Cairo

The section on our Vultures website that details the development of the show is slowing but surely growing. Bit by bit, we’re hoping to offer some insight into the creative process. Hopefully, this area of the website will grow to be a mass archive of sketches, photos, thoughts and reminiscences on our webcom.

Next in the series of updates is trad-man extraordinaire and lead vocalist of the Cairo City Ramblers: Pat Cairo! Playing the part of Pat Cairo was a lot of fun, I must admit. Drinking cans of Guinness at 9.30 on a Sunday morning, singing “Wild Rover” and falling out of a van was a common occurrence for me as it was, so it all came pretty easy on the day of the shoot. However, before I donned the Aran sweater and slung a guitar over my shoulder, myself and John went through many a brainstorm before we decided on the what Pat was to be. That process can be read in all it’s dialogual glory: here

Also: this video is epic beyond belief. Watch it. Favourite it. And 5 star that shit. Oh and then watch Episode 4 again. Fair play. Fair play.


Devious Theatre’s Trainspotting – Opening Five Minutes

December 15, 2008

During the summer of 2008, we hit the stage of the Watergate Theatre for five days to stage an adaptation of Irvine Welsh’s “Trainspotting”. After months of sobering up from our afterparty, we’re finally ready to start uploading footage from it. Here’s the opening five minutes of the show which fortunately/unfortunately cuts off right before I nervously staggered across the stage wondering how exactly I ended up there…
