Terry Cooper is a multi-talented guy. Some say he can rub his tummy and pat his head at the same time. He’s also the creator of OffWorld, its director, one half of the writing team, all-round do-er of things, and the creator of our storyboards. Storyboarding is an essential part of the film development process. […]
It’s not all “work work work” at Black Room HQ (unless you’re Chris). Terry and Adam somehow found the time to go and see an obscure little sci-fi film that most people won’t have heard of – Rogue One. Don’t worry if this movie has passed you by, as sci-fi aficionados it’s Terry and Adam’s job […]
Here’s your chance to take a look at the early prototype for the models of the Tantalus 2. In a world obsessed with CGI, we’re putting a lot of resources into working with leading model makers so that we have a great mix of CGI and “practical effects”. It’s no secret that the Tantalus 2 […]
Producer Adam takes a break from killing orcs (we assume he’s that kind of Dungeon Master and not, you know, the other kind) to give us a behind the scenes peek at the Offworld Table read!
Offworld’s Director Terry Cooper has a regular vlog called “Terry on Tuesday” and this week, when Terry asked for suggestions of what he should talke about, Offworld co-writer Chris cheekily asked “What Makes Chris the Best Co-Writer of All Time”. He didn’t expect to get an answer, but he did. Also, something strange happens the […]
Today we had our first full cast read-through of the script for Offworld. In a slightly chilly room above Sin City Comics in Newport, the cast of Offworld somehow managed to conjure up an alien world, a crashed space ship, and… well… if we told you any more than that then we’d be falling foul […]
After a number of drafts and some late night Skype-based writer’s room sessions, Chris and Terry have locked the script for Offworld and it is now in the hands of our actors. If you’ve been following the Offworld Facebook page, you might have already seen this week’s update about this or seen some of the […]
Chris or, as we know him, “The Duke of Won’t Stop Talking” joined Stacey for an episode of Stacey’s Pop Culture Parlour last week. As is typical for Chris he strays off topic every three minutes or so, meandering back eventually under Stacey’s guidance. Still, it’s a great episode if you like science, superheroes, scares, […]
Thanks to the growing excitement and constant pushing from everyone, we’re gathering more and more pledges, often so many that we can’t keep up with them all! We’ve hit £7000 now, so as another free gift for all backers, we’re going to give you something very exclusive – an E-Book download of: “OFFWORLD: PRE-FLIGHT” by […]
Offworld Directory Terry Cooper announces a very special prize drawer exclusively for our Kickstarter backers
A huge “thank you” to Comic Com Cymru for hosting Team Offworld for the past two days and a big “hello” to all the new members of our Kickstarter family. We had some great donations both online and at the convention. Breaking the £6000 mark means we have unlocked our 5th stretch goal – professional […]
The Black Room’s own Chris Lynch will spend two days writing non-stop at Comic Con Cymru this weekend, not to craft another screenplay for us but to support a very deserving local charity – http://www.autumnstar.co.uk Set up earlier this year to support Autumn, a three-year-old girl currently battling cancer for the second time, the charity […]
OffWorld Directory Terry Cooper answers your questions about our upcoming movie.
You don’t need to wait until 2017 to hear from the crew of the Tantalus II. Thanks to the wonders of subspace communication, we have received some audio messages directly from the crew that we can share with you all today. Let’s raise a glass to the brave crew and passengers of the Tantalus II, working […]
Pie and Mash. Abbot and Costello. Lynch and Cooper. Yes, there are some things that just go together and so it was probably inevitable that Chris Lynch would find himself stepping “OffWorld” with Terry Cooper at some point. Earlier this month Chris took on a position as co-screenwriter with Terry on OffWorld and he’s already […]
Our glorious leader, Terry Cooper, shares his thoughts as the Offworld Kickstarter campaign blazes past its target and heads towards outer space.
The Black Room wouldn’t exist without Terry Cooper, who took Chris Lynch’s script and moved heaven and Earth to make it a reality. And now? Well, that damn maniac’s at it again. This time, Terry has his sights set on a full length science fiction feature… “Offworld”. It’s the story of a space expedition that […]
Comic Con Cymru will be taking over the Capitol Centre in Cardiff on September 24th 25th 2016. One of the exciting things happening at this convention is a 16mm cinema that will be showing some classic movies including 1965’s Dr. Who and The Daleks throughout the weekend. On Sunday The Black Room will also be […]
Ellis Hammond watched David Dare. David Dare watched the clock on the corridor wall. It was 23:42. It was a Thursday. “What are we doing?” asked Hammond, feigning boredom. Her cameraman zoomed his lens in tight on Dare’s face. The enigmatic director of The Black Room might have the ultimate poker face when it came […]
Nipa Singh sat on a ripped office chair and sipped bad coffee from a chipped mug as she watched Professor Fish tapping commands into the scrub station keyboard. Fish was a corpulent man with only a passing acquaintance with personal hygiene and grooming. Singh had been told he was a genius, a one of a […]
