awesome in moving this project forward. We hope to keep this blog active with news

of the “Royal Blood” production over the next 3-6 months. If you want to ask any

questions, or get in touch with us for any reason, please contact us at

inacomaproductions@gmail.com

Thanks from the team at:

May 31, 2013:

all of us here on the production team.

The month of May continues to be good to us here at In A Coma Productions. Our

May 26, 2013:

Mark Tibando (In house Construction Manager/Actor) has been cast as a lead actor in

the new webisode series “The Inbetween“.  It is exciting news for us here at

In A Coma Productions but, to be honest, we’re not surprised because Mark is one

incredibly talented dude.

May 24, 2013:

The production team at In A Coma Productions is pleased to announce an exciting

addition to the cast of Royal Blood.  It is John Emmet Tracy, a multi-facetted

performer, well known here in Vancouver.  One of his most recent acting forays,

American Mary“, is already getting some incredible buzz around the continent and is

set to open in Los Angeles on May 31st 2013.

May 15, 2013:

In A Coma Productions heard the good news, last night.  Johannah Newmarch has

been nominated for a LEO Award in the category of Best Performance by a Female in

a Short Drama for her role in “The Weather Girl”.  This is her second nomination in as

many years. She was nominated last year, and won, for Best Performance by a

Female in a Feature Length Drama for “Sunflower Hour”. She’s an incredible talent.

Johannah is currently set to star in “Royal Blood“, In A Coma Productions new

horror/thriller which is slated to go in front of the cameras in September of this year!

May 04, 2013:

In A Coma Productions has decided to create an Indiegogo campaign for

Royal Blood. Over the next several weeks we will be putting together all of the

materials for the pitch.  It is stunning to realize, that we began ‘assembling’ the

different elements for this project nearly two years ago.  It is a long road to travel

(and will be getting longer still), but the gang here at In A Coma Productions

believes that, in the end, the effort will be well worth it.

February 28, 2013:

Investment money, particularly at the level we require in order to produce our first

feature length film, is difficult to find.  (More so since the financial collapse of

2008)  The production team here at In A Coma Productions has decided to go

the crowd funding route.  We’ll be looking over our options to see how we can

effectively use the available platforms (Kickstarter, Indiegogo, etc) to get the cash

necessary to shoot “Royal Blood“.

February 13, 2013:

First reports coming back from the production team on Road To Shangri-La

are very positive.  Still needs a few rewrites but overall the pilot episode is going

in the right direction.  As the saying goes, writing is rewriting.

January 24, 2013:

Michael Scriven,  our Chief Operating Officer and esteemed producer, is having

a birthday today.   We would like to wish him a very happy day!!!

January 22, 2013:

The first draft of the pilot episode for  Road To Shangri-La has been finished.  It

has a bit of a claustrophobic feel to it, which is what we were hoping for.   Copies will

be sent out to the Production Team for their critiques.

December 13, 2012:

Our Production Team is not going idle, while we wait for developments on the funding

front.  The worst thing you can do is quit while you are on a roll.  We have decided

that we will initiate a second project.  The second will be of an episodic nature.  A few

ideas were put forward  and it has been decided that we will concentrate on a

television/webisode pilot.  Road To Shangri-La.   It’s a Post-apocolyptic theme, with

a strong female lead.  We promise that there will be no zombies involved.

December 10, 2012:

A polish draft of Royal Blood  has been finished and sent out to the In A Coma 

Production Team. This feels close to a version that the team can take to camera.

July 18, 2012:

The last large draft of Royal Blood is done and sent out to the production team.

Although the project will require some polishing and touch-ups, the project as a

whole is very solid.

May 26, 2012:

In A Coma Productions is elated (chuffed actually) to announce that Vancouver’s

Johannah Newmarch was awarded the 2012 LEO for Best Supporting Performance

nominees at this years awards.

January 31, 2012:
