hello m’lovelies, its been a while since we had communicay (arty and slightly wrong way of saying ‘a chat’)…we just wanted to let you know that hand island has not been sunk into oblivion in a terrible tsunami style incident…in fact it is kicking and screaming (as much as an imaginary island can) and moving forward in leaps and bounds…so heres a quick update of what is gwwaann (going on).
Firstly episode 6 is about to go into the post sound stage of production and made me almost laugh at least once during the edit which is one up on all the other episodes expect greatness coming your way v v soon.
Secondly, epsides 7-9 are in full swing despite some moving of dates we have already shot 2 scenes including a fight scene which will make you go ‘oooo’ and maybe even ‘ahhhh’ (ahhh in amazement, not in the soppy romantic sense of ahhhh, thats not how we roll)… we will try and blog a bit soon so check the site regularlylyly for news…
Lastly alex and I are off on a 400 mile road trip to the edinburgh fringe tomorrow to support hand island as it shows 5 days a week until the end of august in the famous urban garden venue in the heart of the city centre…if we get time admist all the orgies, cocaine and orange and passionfruit J20′s we will blog and let yo know how its going down…we are also using the fringe to start our global domination plan which includes leaving special hand island dvds in random places around the country and encouraging people who find them to watch and then leave it somewhere else in public for the next victim…if you find one of these please let us know as it will make us chuckle a bit and we may even find an old rubbish prop to give you as a reward or summink…
keep checking the site for updates and we will be in touch v soon…
After a gloriously sexy live premiere evening last week, it is now time for the ‘proletariat’ (you can tell i did media studies cant you!) to have their turn….yes, thats right episode 5 is now online, in fact as a special treat we even hosted it on our site right here, right now so you dont have to google it!!! HOW AMAZING ARE WE?!?!?!
This episode sees colin on his first day at work (well, first day of being blackmailed) under the ruthless and hollow hearted (literally… we store bottles of coke in him) Advisor. Colin must search all the application entries of possible Hand Island inhabitants and pick the creme de la creme of humanity…will Colin obey his capturer (i know thats not the right word but sod it) or will he pick mentalists in order to ‘stick one to the man’ (tiger)… only clicking the below link will tell…(or you could probably guess tbh)
p.s as a special ep 5 celebration we now have some extra stuff on the site too, have a look at our new character bios on the ‘characters and map’ tab and click on the ‘VIP goodies’ tab for a couple of downloadable fun bits.
WOW!! Last night was the premiere for all those who couldnt make it…for those that did theres a small chance you are aware that it happened!!
either way..It was amazing!! we had to put more chairs at the back and there was a bar and people and a toy tiger, alex, me and …..everything!
Thank yo so much to all those who could make it, we have never felt so weepy in all our days doing this ‘handjob’. It really looks like episode 5 was a great success. We will release a small vid of peoples reactions in the next few days (months/years)… we also raised £73 for wokingham mencap…nice work bruvs Continue Reading…
Everyone loves a good laugh, especially when its seeing ashs nipples (see previous post!) but its no laughing matter when trying to watch streaming tv and it doesnt, well, stream.
With episode 5 getting closer by the week, isn’t it about time to go watch them all again? We don’t bother doing a 5min “previously, in prison break (out)” or the bleep bleeps of 24, mainly as we have better things to do, like get on with the bloody episode!
Where was I? Oh yes, PS3 owners (ok, just Biff) have commented about their inability to play video from Vimeo at peak hours in the lovely HD glory they deserve to be seen in, so here is a round up of all the episodes so far, just click on the read more link below to see all the lovely hand island episodes in order ready for you to click play on…
PS. If you didn’t yet watch our tribute to “baby panda sneezing” then here they are:
Alright bruvs and sis’s, just a quickie to say check out the group page (link via facebook tab on right of the page or search for ‘hand island’ on facebook) for pics from episodes 4-6 shooting many moons ago….personally i was really hoping they might go away but they didnt so hopefully releasing them will shut a few people up!!!!!!
By now everyone has seen the comedy viral video entitled “Sneezing Baby Panda” floating around Youtube, Dailymotion, facebook, Myspace, and all the other social networking sites. However, what you may not have seen is the video that actually started the craze. That’s right…Hand Island’s very own Advisor!
The Hand Island crew would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a very drunken new year. As an extra special bonus I forced them to do a christmas message to you all (it was mid November at the time!) as part of the “In bed” interview.
