- Nov 24, 2004Merkelbach Films have decided to "rest" the Traveller for the time
being, in favour of some exciting new projects. This decision was
prompted by Andrew's own desire to do something different. He
explains in this mini interview.
"After 3yrs of Traveller-related ephemera I'm starting to feel
rather bored with it all now." Andrew confesses. "Don't get me wrong
the Traveller has been a wonderful part to play and it certainly
proved that I could be a rather good candidate for the title role in
a certain BBC TV series currently being revived, but all good things
must come to an end eventually."
Merkelbach had more to say on "that" BBC TV series and his own
film "Curse of the Del Garria"...
"I've showed people that not only could I make a film vaguely
inspired by Doctor Who, but also that I could convincingly play the
lead character as well. I proved, I could make a high quality
professional-looking film on a REALLY low budget and proved I could
act what more is there to say on the matter? Doing more Traveller
films at this stage would seem pointless really."
Merkelbach Films will release the Traveller short story "The
Mission" online in December. The Traveller back catalogue will
remain available through Merkelbach Films.
Need I remind you that the "Curse of the Del Garria" DVD would make
an absolutely smashing Christmas gift for your sci-fi/horror
obsessed loved one! Download the Merkelbach Films store (word)
