Well we think it was. Mind you what were the criteria? Only one - that people who came to the display of dalek props enjoyed what they saw. Ashley had been offered the stand to display daleks and had called it "Dalekworld". Visitors could see eight on display, all with Devious heritage!
Well, this year we have been invited to display some of our daleks at the annual Brighton Modelworld show. We were there years ago with "Onya" the remote controlled one and it was great fun. After a few years gap we've been asked to bring some along for people to enjoy.
As a modelmaker and set builder Ashley will be there, and members of the extended Devious Team will be on hand throughout the three days. If you can make it along then please seek us out and say hello - tell us you've seen this news item even!!!
Well we do tend to say something like that each new year. However this year we are more hopeful. Our news item for Dec 14th 2009 has drawn some interest - and we'd still like others to come forward if they (/you!) have anything to offer! We want Devious to look good and for that to happen we need people who are enthusiastic and good at what they can do. People who fancy cgi-ing a spaceship-asteroid-tardis or a flying arrow for example.
Well, we're invited again next year to display our sets and props at the famous Brighton ModelWorld show. As before as an exhibitor our stand will be a celebration of daleks although with a different emphasis! Last year we displayed 6 from Devious as well as a couple more from friends of ours.
In a rare outing the Devious daleks (accompanied by a Remembrance clone courtesy of friend of Devious: Mat Hicks) yesterday spent the evening as exhibits at an event featuring Sherlock - League of Gentlemen - Doctor Who luminary Mark Gatiss and visual effects supremo Paul (Inception, Harry Potter, Dark Knight) Franklin.
Well that was fun. And it worked better than we had thought. The trio Stephen Ashley and David met with Tony our Doctor last evening (26th March) and started on our epic quest to do the ADR for Devious.
Above you can see Tony in his custom-made soundbooth reading from the newly transcribed script whilst keeping "a weather eye" on the action displayed on a monitor in front of him. His headphones played back each segment repeatedly whilst he refined the sentence in question.
Stephen and David from the "Devious Project" are interviewed on BBC's South East Today to coincide with the release on BBC DVD of "The War Games" -- a Patrick Troughton Doctor Who story. This DVD includes as an extra some footage from Devious and a scene featuring Jon Pertwee as the Doctor.
