Two new videos for you to point your face at

Did you watch Forgive Me Father on Monday? No you didn't, because you were waiting for us to announce it on the blog? You really shouldn't do that, we're not very reliable. Well here it is then:

Are you gripped by the exciting story? I hope so. But it's rather dark, so let's lighten the mood with the brand new episode of Heaven's Gate!

There, you're all up to date now. Next week, try to watch them without me having to tell you. I'm not your mum.

Heaven's Gate - Episode 3!

Thursday has been and gone, as Thursdays tend to do, which means we have another episode of Heaven's Gate for you to watch! We'll get right down to it, shall we?

No other news today, other than the fact that we inexplicably didn't win the 48 Hour Film Challenge, but I don't want to talk about that. If it's OK with you I'll just sit alone in the corner and sulk.

The 48 Hour Challenge!!!!

There were some hilarious japes along the way to making our entry for the Colchester Film Festival 48 Hour challenge wot we took part in and all that.

I spent well over SIX HOURS on the project and almost all of that was actually doing stuff. There was no lunch or crisps or jelly babies or cups of coffee or tea or anything like that and there was certainly no time for watching Rupaul’s Drag Race – that would have a been a ludicrous waste of precious time!

I spent MINUTES, yes! MINUTES! Watching Simon write the script, and the work didn’t stop there! I then had to WAIT while he made the lovely audio into a cartoon.

Also, I would like to add that there is no truth in the allegation that I added any unnecessary singing to the script, the wonderful singing wot I did was utterly fundamental to the script and if I hadn’t demanded that I add it in then the whole thing would have fallen to bits. Utterly and completely.

Well you can judge for yourselves, get your peepers around this then:

AND! As if that's not all! Today is MONDAY! And you know what Monday means don't you!? Yes! Its Rent boy day... although technically the actual title of this is 'Forgive Me Father - Episode Three'.

Heaven's Gate and some NEWS!

First up, we've got a new release for you - it's episode two of Heaven's Gate! Here it is, you lucky, lucky people.
Did you enjoy that? Of course you did, don't know why I asked. And now for some news! This weekend is an exciting weekend for Clever Dicks Productions because we're taking part in the 48 Hour Film Challenge! That was going to be a link but I couldn't find one so you'll just have to imagine what it involves. The clue is very much in the name.

So look out for the result of that, which we'll no doubt be posting on here and banging on about in all the usual places. I assume it will win first prize, which I assume is some kind of life size, solid gold hydraulic elephant automaton, which I'll be able to ride around the town and be the envy of all who see me. I'm looking forward to that.

Forgive Me Father - Episode 2

If you haven't spotted it already, episode two of our exciting serial Forgive Me Father has been unleashed upon an unsuspecting public, though frankly we've been banging on about it enough that they've only got themselves to blame for the unsuspecting part. Are you sitting comfortably? Then here it is.

A multiplicity of new releases!

I suppose it goes without saying that yesterday's very exciting screening of some of our films was a tremendous success. As for the fact that it took place in a bus shelter with a skellington in the middle, and our films were shown right at the end so half the audience had gone home... well those things are probably best left unsaid. Let's just focus on the fact that they seemed to go down well with the pitiful fraction of the audience that remained.

As if that's not enough excitement for you, we have an announcement! Are you ready for the announcement? OK, here it is:

Hello! I'm an announcement. I'm here to announce that Clever Dicks Productions will now be posting a new video to their youtube channel every single Monday and every single Thursday! Starting this week! Which is a lot of videos! So you should follow it and that.

"Starting this week?" you say in a mildly puzzled tone. "But I've been checking this blog every single minute in the hope of new entertainment and I know for a fact that there wasn't anything new on Monday." Yes there was! We just forgot to put it on the blog.

Which mean I've got a whole load of videos to show you now. Go and get a cup of tea or something, this will take a while. Unless you were one of the few people who BOTHERED to stick around to the end of the screening, in which case you've already seen them, so I'll let you off.

First up, the one we released on Monday. This is an EXCITING NEW SERIES and is basically what you're going to get every Monday for ages. Unlike most of our stuff it's a dark drama type thing so don't expect it to be hilarious. There's a trailer, you can watch that first:

If that whet your appetite, then you should watch episode one. If it didn't then you should probably just scroll past it to the funny stuff.

Wasn't that exciting? Tune in next Monday to find out what happens next!

Meanwhile on Thursdays we've started another EXCITING NEW SERIES, but this one you are allowed to expect to be hilarious, because it is. We might as well start with the trailer for that one too I suppose.

And now - and this is the last thing for now, I promise - episode one of that wonderful wonderful series! Have I still got your attention? Don't give up now, it's worth it, I promise.

Did you make it all the way down here? Well done! Now go and do something else, your tea's gone cold.

Tonight, yes this very night! There is going to be a special screening of films held in St Botolph’s Waiting Room (this is an actual venue, not a bus shelter, although it used to be a bus shelter, I went there when it was a bus shelter once and I think I had a coffee…) hosted by Film Colchester!

It is just a £1 donation to come to the lovely screening and there will be films made by Clever Dicks!

Not just ANY films neither! Oh no, there is going to be a special PREMIERE!!! Isn’t that truly exciting!?

Here, why not have a preview of some of the music, by the lovely Louise Byrne, for the new series; its called ‘Heaven’s Gate’ and it isn’t about suicide! Isn’t that nice?

There will also be some other stuff by some other people, but you don’t care about that.

Just click here to get more information about the event from facebook and join and stuff, like what people do.
