#BorisKarloff: #MoreThanaMonster
Boris Karloff - A name synonymous with horror. Drawing on detailed research, previously unpublished letters, and interviews with those who knew him this new #biography dispels the often repeated myths associated with the star - many perpetuated by #Karloff himself - and reveals a wealth of new information about the private and professional life of Boris Karloff. Although forever associated with his breakthrough role of 'the Monster' in Frankenstein (1931) Boris Karloff had a career that spanned almost 50 years and over 150 movies - from the era of the silent picture through to the days of the 'Swinging Sixties'. His roles in Bride of Frankenstein, The Mummy, The Black Cat, and many others - most now considered classics of the genre - ensured his reputation as '#TheKingofHorror'. Born #WilliamHenryPratt in Camberwell, South London in 1887 Karloff defied family expectations and rejected a life in Government service. Instead he emigrated to Canada were he finally found work as a professional actor. 
This is #StephenJacobs' first book, which has taken 10 years to research. He is regarded by many as the expert on Karloff.

Every Who down in Whoville liked Christmas a lot, but the Grinch, who lived just north of Whoville - did not. The Grinch hated Christmas - the whole Christmas season. Now, please don't ask why; no one quite knows the reason. It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight. Or it could be that his head wasn't screwed on just right. But I think that the most likely reason of all... may have been that his heart was two sizes too small. But, whatever the reason, his heart or his shoes, he stood there on Christmas Eve hating the Whos. Staring down from his cave, with a sour grinchy frown, at the warm, lighted windows below in their town. For he knew that every Who down in Whoville beneath was busy now, hanging a holly who wreath. #grinch #thegrinch #howthegrinchstolechristmas #1966 #chuckjones #boriskarloff #christmasspecial #christmasmovies #mood

Work in progress on a oil painting  of Boris Karloff as the monster from Frankenstein.

I'm steping out if my comfort zone with this one, by setting a time limet and not aiming for somthing super realistic.

No.3 of my "5 mistakes that will kill your HORROR (or any) film"
No.3. "Slaughter your film with INCOMPETENT DIRECTING SKILLS"
. 
a) Remember this, a good ACTOR who is involved with the script- and understands the characters motives- doesn't NEED to be told how to read a line; but a good DIRECTOR is one who assists the players in understanding why the line was written in the first place.
 Don't blame the actors if you fail to immerse them within the story arc or don't introduce them to their respective characters thoroughly. 
Part misinterpretation will quickly turn your horror film into a comedy or errors. .
.
b) PACING: Much of a directors role is to set the tone and pace of a film...the crecsendo of the drama. It's their fault alone if actors over-play scene after scene. i.e we don't need to see characters falling apart every 15 seconds thereby numbing our emotional involvment with the plot. 
Underestimating your films pace will decapitate drama and every nuance of it. (Pay attention to those audiences at short-film festivals who begin looking at their smart phones in the middle of  screenings... you know they are sitting through something truly... "terrifying". Don't be the director of THAT film. .
.
.c) LEADERSHIP:  Filmmaking as a team sport needs stong and competent leadership; if you can't provide a plan, a concise vision or consitency in communication, your film will 
gasp for breath till it expires into nothingness.
 A decent budget, players, gear, time and locations mean NOTHING if you aren't organized or  communicating. Without strong leadership you may as well go back to vlogging, because you'll never bring a FILM to LIFE.
(que Dr. Frankenstein's glee here)🧟‍♂️😊

No.4. Of my :5 mistakes that will kill your horror film".
No.4 "Murder your film with poor casting and neglectful test screening".
.
CASTING a) 
So your mom agreed to play the lead? Great. You are about to strangle your film. Listen, I get it... few of us are made of money and often rely on help from family and friends, but unless your mother is an actor to begin with, reconsider.
You are better off having one GOOD actor play multiple roles than five non-actors butcher every scene. Your mum, your brother, your  BFF... if they can't act they can't act. Think of 
film-making as football, it is a TEAM sport where you are both coach and talent scout; you aim to win the Super Bowl..Still sound reasonable to have Mommy Dearest suit up as your star running back? Um. No.
1) Think about what you are doing before it's done. 
2) Don't let what is convenient for you determine the quality of your work. Read that again.
.
CASTING b)
Remember that the best casting consist of talent+believability. i.e an actor BEST suited for the role.
Sure, shake up stereotypes, go against the grain, but keep your casting within the realm of believability.
Don't cast your 12 yr old cousin- no matter how GREAT of an actor he or she may be-  as the CEO of 'Machete' Inc.' They can't pull off a convincing 40 yr old.
.
SCREENING: Not everyone pairs well together on screen. Be wary of your judgement.  A camera- by it's very nature of being an indiscriminate machine- has a way of picking up on physical chemistry which isn't compromised by a subconscious mind and its assements of people. The camera knows best and won't lie to itself or you.
.
See you next Monday for the 3rd MISTAKE that will KILL YOUR HORROR FILM.💀☠📽

Be wary of your judgement.  A camera- by it's very nature of being an indiscriminate machine- has a way of picking up on physical chemistry which isn't compromised by a subconscious mind and its assements of people. The camera knows best and won't lie to itself or you. . See you next Monday for the 3rd MISTAKE that will KILL YOUR HORROR FILM.💀☠📽 . .Be a proud supporter via Patreon!
