The short film recently narrated by Tom - A Brief History of Confession, was the winner of the Secrets and Lies short film competition at the Latitude Festival last weekend. Latitude uploaded the film to You Tube, so we now get to enjoy Tom's lovely voice.
Today's Australian Daily Telegraph has a great review for the recently released Region 4 Da Vinci's Demons season 2 DVD. The review is available to read via Press Display Viewer. Thanks to Sally for spotting it.
This is a highly addictive series. If you haven’t caught up with it yet the basic premise is that renowned Renaissance artist Leonardo da Vinci was deeply involved in the political machinations in Florence at the time of Lorenzo de Medici. It plays a bit fast and loose with history, with recognisable historical events and figures turning up in unexpected ways, but it will whet your appetite to learn more about the period.
Da Vinci (Tom Riley) is depicted as an action hero who is a cross between McGyver and Sherlock Holmes and looks like Joseph Fiennes’ Shakespeare from Shakespeare In Love. Series two picks up where the last one left off, with Leonardo caught up in the infamous Pazzi conspiracy, Lorenzo on the verge of death and Rome on the verge of invasion. This season is mostly the aftermath of the conspiracy and da Vinci’s quest to make it to South America to look for the mysterious Book Of Leaves. Ripping action adventure in a marvellous 15th-century setting.
Despite being the perfect genre show to take to San Diego Comic Con, sadly for fans, Da Vinci's Demons will not be presented there this weekend.
There is good news for comic con fans; announced by FOX last week, Da Vinci's Demons has now been added to the Comic Con Portugal website line up. The con will take place in December, though it isnt clear yet when tickets will go on sale.
Da Vinci's Demons season 3 has been filming for a month now, and so far, we fans of the show have been treated to some wonderful behind the scenes photos and videos, shared by the cast and crew.
Although most of the photos and videos shared, appear to have be taken at the studios in Swansea, a couple of new filming locations have been revealed. At the beginning of July, several locals tweeted about Da Vinci's Demons filming in St Theodore's Church in Port Talbot. Then night shoots which followed, were mentioned by Kieran Bew and Tom Horton.
