WATCH NOW! --Paul is Dead-- A Beatles Film (Starring Me!! ;p) 13mins
Ladies and Gentlemen! Steemies of the multiverse! Rock up and Roll up to see this crazy new Rock and Roll fiction based on the famous conspiracy that Paul McCartney DIED while the Beatles were at the height of their fame. It was my honour to be able to play George Harrison in this mad little comedy short and Im really impressed with the quality of the production (especially given that this was a student team doing their final degree show!).
First of all , heres the trailer: (if you dont want any spoilers, just skip to the full film below)
Arent the costumes great? It was SO fun dressing up as the Beatles.....
Anyway, heres the full film.....its about 13 minutes long. ENJOY!:
So there you go, we just rewrote Rock and Roll History!! haha. It was a crazy ride making this film and its so great to have it released out in to the public domain now. We filmed it in February in the lake district around the time that The BEAST from The EAST swept through the UK (a horrendous Siberian snow storm). Fortunately we managed to film all of the outdoor scenes just in the nick of time, but I can tell you, wearing skin tight leggings up a mountain in that sort of weather for 10 hours a day is NOT easy going.... I can probably never have children now! And to make matters a little more death defying we were then snowed in for DAYS ON END in a guest house, up a mountain, where the nearest supplies were a treacherous hour-and-a-half hike away! Not to mention that the landlord of our guest house was very traditional and frankly blamed the Beatles for destroying music forever.... He wanted us OUT and we had to flatly refuse on the basis that the roads were like black ski-slopes. 13 film students and the Beatles all stuck up a mountain in a treacherous blizzard with a landlord who hates them......it was the perfect premise for a comedy-horror film and we were definitely discussing the very real possibility that we could all die up there........and who were we going to eat first?!
So it was quite an eventful film shoot, which frankly, it always is when Im roped in to acting for my dear friend George Moore, who is the director. We've worked together on many projects throughout his development and Im proud to say he is turning in to a truly awesome film maker. DEFINITELY watch this space! Check out his website where you can see some of his other projects: http://www.georgemoorefilms.com/

Thanks for checking it out everybody! I really hope you've enjoyed it, and I hope to bring plenty more of this sort of entertainment to the Steemisphere in future years!
MegaMassivePowerLove to all you beautiful Steemies keeping the SteemDreemin' Alive
p.s. sorry to any genuine Beatles superfans who might have been rightfully apalled at my horribly inconsistent George Harrison impression.....I told the director, if we ever do a feature version I want a bloody accent coach written in to my contract!!!! haha
p.p.s. for all you genuine scousers out there, we have a public showing in Liverpool THIS MONTH so come along! I cant be there sadly, but heres a link to the facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/155403108737587/
