Finally got my pointing pictures up and into the Vault. Don't ask me why.

25th April 2017

Opened up a new section all for including stuff about the board game Super Dungeon Explore. There's not much in there yet until my own rules are finished, but hopefully will get some content in there soon.

V6 reaches its final form, as I've added the right info bar for wider screens, as well as managing to update all the blog posts in fairly rapid time. Had the bright idea to write a script which went through the old blog posts and updated all the image tags for me, so I barely had to do any work in the end.

LLAP-Goch Flimmed Productions

Here lies some information about all ten LLAP-Goch Productions that were flimmed, plus some about the one that was almost flimmed.

"Fiendish Creation"

Fiendish Creation Web-ComicDate Completed
November 1996
Running Time
Approx 12 mins
Synopsis
Mickey Niff's balls have been stolen, and it's upto the Boglins to get them back. On their journey, the Boglins come up against such evil as the Trolls, the Ghosts and the Madballs. Will their quest be successful, or will Mickey Niff lose his balls forever?
Stebloke's Thoughts
Where it all started. I think we were desperate to flim something but were so scared of seeing ourselves on screen we decided to make this weird toy thing instead. Fiendish Creation never saw light of day until it was included in the middle of The Adventures Of Detective Cronkshonk, some 5 months later.

"The Sketchpad"

Date Completed
February 1997
Running Time
Approx 10 mins
Synopsis
Several small sketches, the main one detailing an evil wizard's plan to turn everything into cheese, and a valiant dwarf out to stop him.
Stebloke's Thoughts
The first in the increasingly popular sketch-style flims. Again there were no real people actually on screen. Who would know that this small idea would grow into such a monster it became?

"The Adventures Of Detective Cronkshonk"

Date Completed
April 1997
Running Time
Approx 68 mins (including "Fiendish Creation")
Synopsis
A once peaceful land is thrown into turmoil as a master sock thief brings chaos to the land. A small group of mentally unstable police officers find themselves trying to catch the criminal. The task leads them into a final confrontation which will determine the fate of the most important socks in the world - The Holy Green Socks Of Life!
Stebloke's Thoughts
The first Production ever to include real people on screen. Seems very dated now, and is almost impossible to watch. Because it took so long to make (I think about six months) there were all kinds of problems like different hair styles and clothes. I really wish we'd cared about continuity back then. By far the longest flim we made, and probably the one with the best plot. And I think some of the jokes were quite funny even if not delivered right.

"Indescribable Day"

Indescribable DayDate Completed
August 1997
Running Time
Approx 34 mins
Synopsis
Independence Day gets the LLAP-Goch treatment as the President and his scientist allies fight back against an alien jelly onslaught!
Jack Gooty of W.A.B.K. radio station beams his crappy music into outer space, where passing aliens think they are under attack, and set out for revenge. President Gobblespud and his helpers at the Space Research Centre must move fast to save the world!
Stebloke's Thoughts
A spoof of Independence Day. Of the early Productions, this one had the most work put into it. Still funny even now, and the old Amiga animation and sound effects surely give it cult status. Some people would probably argue this was the best Production ever made. A much anticipated sequel was written but never flimmed, due to laziness. For a long while me and my bro wanted to re-make this digitally, but I guess that would have taken away its cheesy charm.

"Albert's Diary"

Albert's DiaryDate Completed
December 1997
Running Time
Approx 13 mins
Synopsis
Albert Spoonfish moves into a new neighbourhood. The craziness kicks off when his highly infectious Grobgut's disease starts to affect the locals. Anyone under the influence of the disease can't help but say strange things and make silly noises.
Stebloke's Thoughts
This was written in a very odd way. Mr. Krig, my brother and me would take it in turns adding the next line to the script, always trying to out-do the others for insanity. While it was funny to write and flim, in the end there was no real point to it. Just lots of silly noises and high pitched screams. Mind you, who would have thought the Production Doogle didn't help to write would be the most insanely stupid of the lot?

"Sketchpad 2"

Sketchpad 2Date Completed
April 1998
Running Time
Approx 15 mins
Synopsis
Different comedy sketches, including Kung-Fu Man and Jaws flim dub.
Stebloke's Thoughts
Already tired of the effort needed to create a Production with a proper plot, we started to make several small sketches and put them all together here. Done really for a laugh at the time, but probably recieved a warmer reception than any other Production before it. Its popularity inspired the later tendancy to lean towards sketch-style Productions rather than the proper storyline style.

"Cronkshonk 2: Rubber Pants, Socks and Pans"

Date Completed
April 1998
Running Time
Approx 14 mins
Synopsis
The sock thief is still at large. The police officers comb the land for help in their quest to bring the thief to justice. Will they finally catch the criminal, or will they be distracted by the almighty game of Hit The Pan?
Stebloke's Thoughts
This was a poor sequel to the original Goch flim. But to be fair, we did have all kinds of problems. If I remember right I wasn't involved as flimming started and the others had to change the script for some scenes. Then we couldn't properly finish it due to a sudden division within the LLAP-Goch ranks. Incomplete scenes had to be explained by on-screen text, and it really didn't work. Shame, because I think some parts of it would have been very funny.

"Sketchpad 3"

Date Completed
October 1999
Running Time
Approx 32 mins
Synopsis
Sketch-style Production, featuring several Christmas scenes, mini-flim "Shout!" and the first ever live LLAP-Goch performance.
Stebloke's Thoughts
The first Production for 18 months, and though it was considered to be quite a monster it was actually cobbled together from loads of different bits. We had been making two separate Productions - Shout! and Sketchpad 3, but hadn't really got anywhere with either. So we decided to stick everything we'd got together, along with a live sketch that had been flimmed at a school in 1998, and several seasonal sketches that me and JIK had done the previous Christmas that had never surfaced. So our Christmas special was completed and released for Halloween. Yep. That was LLAP-Goch. This Production is important for introducing two things - Tunes Man, and the first video footage of the Tony Robinson dance. On the whole it worked much better than it probably should have.

"Sketchpad 2000"

Date Completed
July 2000
Running Time
Approx 29 mins
Synopsis
Sketch-style Production, featuring The Twits, Tunes Man, and the awesome Rawhide music video.
Stebloke's Thoughts
Ah, the daddy of them all. What a shame that it was the last one we ever did. Though we were low on cast, Doogle, JIK and me made up for it by putting in much more effort. Also, Doogle now had a digital camcorder and editing facilities far better than the old in-line ones we'd been forced to use before. I think for the first time we, well Doogle mainly, actually worried about shooting angles, costumes, getting the correct light etc. Not that we let all that distract us from the stupidity! I think I knew it was all going to work very early in the editing phase when Doogle showed me the completed Rawhide music video. I don't think I ever laughed so much at anything we did as I did then. This Production was quite interesting in a way because part way through making it we decided it was going to be our last one and flimmed a funny death scene. But then we decided it wasn't going to be the last one and changed the flim accordingly. And then it ended up being the last one anyway. Hilarious.

"LLAP-Goch: Unseen"

Date Completed
February 2002
Running Time
Approx 12 mins
Synopsis
Special Production featuring never before released footage, out-takes, and Shout! scenes that never made it into Sketchpads 2+3.
Stebloke's Thoughts
I'd finally got my own Mac to edit with, and decided to search the archives and found a lot of unseen footage and bloopers from Sketchpads 2+3. We didn't release Sketchpad outtakes on the flims like we did with plot-driven Productions so I thought this would be a good way of releasing them. Also, because of the way we edited Shout! for Sketchpad 3 there were scenes that had been flimmed but couldn't be included because they didn't really have a place any more. So they were put here as well. Though it was a bit pointless, it ended up being quite a nice way to tie up loose ends.

"everything=nothing"

Chase SketchDate Completed
Was never finished
Running Time
Aimed at around 30 mins
Synopsis
Sketch-style production.
Stebloke's Thoughts
everything=nothing was being flimmed late 2001 and early 2002, and several scenes had been flimmed. These included a talk show hosted by Grunditch, a "How To Hide" scene, a Greengrocers scene, and a Monkey Island style computer game rip-off, which somehow combined the locations of a Cornwall beach and Cannock Chase! Doogle had made a really cool start intro thing involving a run down science lab and a bouncing eye, and the cast list would probably have far bettered the nine that were in Indescribable Day. By this time Doogle had mastered the awesome Final Cut Pro editing software as well. It would have been good. Perhaps one day there will be a LLAP-Goch: Unseen 2.

"Chase" sketch Released March 2010.
Funky Island Released July 2011.

DVD Editions

Synopsis
Some of the early LLAP-Goch movies got new versions in 2008 and 2010.
Stebloke's Thoughts
For some reason in 2008 I had the mad idea of importing all the old LLAP-Goch movies into my Mac to polish them up a bit before finally burning them all onto DVD (they were at this point still on VHS). In June of that year I managed to combine both "Cronkshonk" films into one complete movie, but unfortunately it took 'til March 2010 for me to get round to giving Indescribable Day some treatment.
Some of the changes in these films were the removal of the adverts, tidying up nearly every single edit, and adding new sound effects and music (composed by a student at the school I worked at, which had originally been composed for the trailers that were made in 2005).
"Cronkshonk" got new credits, some new visuals, and an extended scene where Cronkshonk falls off a cliff, which we couldn't figure out how to accomplish back in '98.
For "ID" it seemed important to me that all the cheesy dogfight graphics were left untouched, but I did update the radar display graphics which made no sense in the original. Though I left the graphics untouched, much of the dogfight shots and dialogue were re-ordered to make more sense and make it a bit more fast paced. Unlike "Cronk" I couldn't remake the credits easily as we had added our voices to the end credit music in the original, so I didn't bother.
It was my original intention to re-edit all the films in this way, as some, like the early Sketchpads, really needed it. But by this time I could no longer really be bothered with the others, and burnt them all to DVD with just "Cronk" and "ID" updated.
