Here’s a thing.

We’re making a movie, as many of you know. We got a budget through Kickstarter, which was absolutely AWESOME. However, we’re still shooting a movie on a tiny, tiny fraction of a Hollywood budget (less than 1%) so we need to get any cool stuff we possibly can onscreen without breaking our budget. This is where the idea of a Rodriguez List comes in. Before Robert Rodriguez shot his first movie, he made a list of all the cool stuff he could get hold of for free and then he stuck it in the movie. That’s why there’s a turtle in it!

If you’ve got cool stuff that you’d like to get featured in a movie in exchange for a credit or a thank you or whatever, drop us a line through our form at http://powertoolcheerleaders.com – maybe you’ve spent years on a piece of artwork and want to show it off? Or you own a business or a location that you’d like to feature in the movie? This film is going to get made and it’s going to be awesome, so if you’ve got something you’d like to get featured in front of the camera why not let us know before its too late! Go and complete the form on the website, and feel free to spread the word.

You are all awesome.

Our Kickstarter campaign for our new movie Powertool Cheerleaders vs the Boyband of the Screeching Dead closed this afternoon, having raised 100% of target!

Thank you to each and every backer, sharer and those who were just cheering us on! We can’t wait to get back on set and bring you a toe-tapping, heart warming bloodbath like no other!

Oh my God.

Thank you all SO SO much.

If you haven’t checked out the campaign yet, click the graphic below.

We love you all.

Two and a half years ago, I was giving up on a screenplay.

I tweeted about the fact I was about to give up on this screenplay, this crazy thing with an unwieldy title. I tweeted about it, intending that to be the first and probably only public acknowledgement that the doomed project existed in the first place.

Here’s the tweet, and the response I got.

And that’s what we decided to do.

Thanks to that reply, the screenplay was saved from the bin. I nurtured it and it grew. I added songs. I added insane gore, loads of jokes and sincere character development. It went from being a half-written joke title to something I genuinely cared a lot about and felt that other people might do too.

Charlie agreed to come onboard as both the lead character of Emily and as producer of the movie, and then we were really off to the races.

Over the last couple of years, we’ve been carefully putting together an absolute killer project which we think you’re going to LOVE. There’s been so much blood, sweat and tears gone into this movie already, but every minute of it has been fun too. Because that’s what this movie is all about.

We’re currently running a Kickstarter, which isn’t just about us getting enough cash to finish the sucker off in fine style but is also about giving people the chance to get involved. Whether you want to get killed onscreen, name a chainsaw in the movie, go to a cast and crew screening where we’re going to sing the songs from the movie live onstage at the after party or just pick up a DVD of the movie…

Whatever you’re looking for, we’ve got it. And if we haven’t, give us a shout on social media and let us know what you’re looking for. This journey has been brilliant so far and it’s really only just begun.

So click the graphic below, check out our promo video and prepare to meet the Powertool Cheerleaders.

Oh, and don’t forget to follow the movie on Twitter and Facebook.

So, we thought we’d track the pre-production process of Powertool Cheerleaders vs the Boyband of the Screeching Dead with an online diary!

The global pandemic has caused a few changes of plan, but we’re going to keep on putting the project together.

Stay home and stay safe, everyone.

Oh, it’s been a LONG time. Did you miss us?

We’ve been horribly neglecting jinx.co.uk whilst we’ve been going about other projects. From live shows about screenwriting to writing books, the team at Jinx have been stupidly busy doing THINGS, but just not THESE THINGS.

But we’re back. In a big, bad way.

This year we’ll be shooting POWERTOOL CHEERLEADERS VS THE BOYBAND OF THE SCREECHING DEAD (our sixth feature film) AND a secret project that we can’t announce yet.

We’ll be keeping you posted about all these developments whenever Pat remembers to update the site. In the meantime, drag yourself out onto Twitter and make sure to follow both Jinx Media and Pat Higgins

It’s going to be a brilliant year (Coronavirus willing) and we hope you’ll be along for the ride.
