Fantastic Stories

Apr 29

Imagine if some of the classic stories of science fiction were actually true and that instead of being fanciful accounts from inspired authors they actually happened.

Richard Vobes goes in search of one such story that evidence does suggest took place in the late years of the 19th century, when strange cylinders arrived from outer space and tripodic beings with heat rays dominated the Earth.

This video was originally made in DV about ten years ago for a pitch to TV in two parts. I have joined them together and uploaded them here so other can have a view of some of my earlier work.

The Bald Explorer – Teaser 6

Apr 28

The filming has begun. The Bald Explorer has been tramping the streets of the beautiful County Town of East Sussex, Lewes. There is much more to do. There is the story of the Battle of Lewes, the Burning of the Protestent Martyrs, the House of Correction, Priory of St Pancras the era of the coach and horses, the magnicient castle and of course the pubs!

This is just a short, very short teaser from the first on-location stock shots and cutaways filming. I am back in May 2011 to shoot the main script and more fun.

Vobes Show 1696

Apr 28

I am back from the dead. Yes, I have been slightly ill and unable to record the show. It was the voice that did it. But now I am back and although croaky and sipping copious amounts of tea, the Vobes is ready to communicate with the nation.

Vobes Show 1694

Apr 21

I am sorry to announce that today’s show does feature a couple of comedy deaths that are not at all funny to the people it happened to, but from an outsider’s point of view are hilarious. I have had a cold and am still bunged up with flu and apologies for yesterdays lack of a show.
