A.S.K. Announcement!

Just got back from Cannes, where director Dan Turner and I have been drinking for a few days, avec une side order of meeting film industry people. While there, we decided to ostentatiously announce the title of our feature-film project, codenamed ASK, with this video. Watch, and see conclusive proof of why I'm a writer, not a talker...

Excellent!

Did you have an autocue in your sunglasses? You were very professional.

Lucy said...

I second Sir Daniel. In fact, I quite fancied you, in a Paul Ross/Ross Kemp kind of way.

Good Dog said...

Neither of you look hungover enough. Rectify that ASAP!

Helen Smith said...

Your voice is very gruff in a sexy way. The sound quality wasn't great or else my hearing is going. Did you really say you had got a Nigerian bank to fund it? How does that work, then? You send them your bank account no. and then...?

Marvellous news, though. And Cannes looks lovely and so does Dan xx

Jason Arnopp said...

Thanks folks!

Mr Dog: Why'd you think I'm wearing the shades? But I may well post another video soon of Dan and I acting like twats while tipsy. Shouldn't be too hard to find.

Ms Smith: Yes, my babbling was fighting a losing battle with the sea, which was literally eight feet away. But yes, we received an e-mail from a Nigerian businessman who offered to let some funds "rest" in our bank account for a while. Incredible news, yes? Hmmmm? Eh?

I am SO turned on right now.

In the next video, you must be nude, and dancing for me.

Piers said...

But... but..

That's TASK.

Dan Turner said...

NO. Not the 'other' video.
Jason, for the love of God... don't do it

Jaded and Cynical said...

That's a great idea for a story.

Is it autobiographical?

Jason Arnopp said...

J&C: No, there's nothing accidental about my nocturnal quests for blood, flesh, bone and shrieking insanity.

Phill Barron said...

Piers is right, it is TASK - you've lied to us Arnopp, I'll never trust you again.

Dom Carver said...

Err, shouldn't that technically be T.A.S.K - The Accidental Serial Killer??????

And you can't be an accidental serial killer, a serial killer plans his victims, it should be an accidental manslaughterist. Catchy title, huh???

No need to thank me, I feel proud to have helped in some small way :-)

I laughed out loud when it cut away to the sea - good blog by the way.
