was created to honour the memory and music of my brother, ASOMVEL founder and front-man, Jay-Jay Winter, and I am thrilled that it is now in such safe hands. The film features the very best of British metal, some already known globally, and some who are making waves on home ground — and I could not be happier that all
of these bands will now find the global audience they so richly deserve.”
Pamela Glasner, the film’s other producer had this to say, “I am so awed by all of this, that through Deborah’s sheer force of will, first came the festival and then came the film, both of which will keep her bother’s memory alive in the music world forever.

Best known as Twisted Sister front-man, Dee Snider will be playing the role of the Riggs: a complex man who divides his time between trying to hold the crumbling hotel together, inappropriately waving his blatant sexuality around like a flag, and drinking copious amounts of liquor in a futile attempt to drown out some vague but hideous incident from his … and the hotel’s … past.
Aside from his stupendous musical career, Dee’s multi-faceted career has found him hosting popular radio and TV shows, acting in feature films, lending his beautiful narrating voice to multiple documentaries, and appearing in such popular TV reality shows as Growing Up Twisted
and Celebrity Apprentice
Director, Deborah Louise Robinson had this to say about this latest turn of events: “As a long-time fan of Dee and his work, I could not be more excited to be working with him on The Calicoon
. He is an incredibly talented and charismatic individual, and absolutely my first choice for this role. I am honoured that he has agreed be a part of this.”

Well, it’s the morning after the night before, and I am thrilled to say that Full Moon Dog 2012 was better than I could have ever imagined! So many people turned up to honour the memory of Jay-Jay Winter – and they gave him a party fit for a legend!
The Cockpit in Leeds was near capacity within minutes of doors opening – and at one o’clock we started a party that we’ll remember forever. I will never, ever forget Full Moon Dog 2012, or the people I met there.
So many people came up to thank me for organising the festival, and I am deeply humbled by that – it wasn’t me who made this the kick-ass shin-dig it was – it was the amazing bands who played their hearts out, and it was the heavy rockers that came from all over the world to celebrate Jay’s life, it was the hearts and spirits of everyone in the room – it takes people to create an atmosphere – and thank God, we had the people.
I had been promoting this festival as ‘Bringing back the 80’s' – and yesterday, it was like being back in 1985 when venues would be packed to the rafters with rockers pumping their fists and raising their horns for a genre they worshipped – All you people who got off your backsides, travelled to Leeds, and did it like you meant it - YOU made it work! And I salute you.
We are absolutely delighted that Brave Words,
the on-line counterpart to the fantastically popular, Canadian heavy metal publication, Brave Words and Bloody Knuckles
has picked up on news of Full Moon Dog 2012. They have run a feature about the festival and the film, Madder Than a Full Moon Dog
which will be read by countless heavy metal fans globally.
"Producer/director Deborah Louise Robinson: "This is a festival created by the fans, for the fans – and it has real heart, and let me tell you why. On October 18th, 2010 my brother, Jay (pictured below), tragically lost his life in a car accident at the age of 43 – our world would never be the same again. I knew right then that focusing on his death would ultimately have me sitting in a strait-jacket and drooling. I had to focus on his life, to let the world know something about the uniquely inspiring individual he was. And the truth is, he wasn’t just my brother, he was yours too…back in October 2010, the heavy metal community lost one of their own. Jay- Jay Winter, founder and front-man of Asomvel, a man who lived for the genre, a man of honour, pride, and integrity, and a man in possession of the most hilarious quick-wit you could imagine – a man, who, once met, could never be forgotten. Every person who met Jay is a better person for it – and it is for the people that never got to meet him that Full Moon Dog Festival was created. Festivals should not only be for those heavy metal fans with deep pockets and designer clothes – they should be accessible to all, and our aim is to use the proceeds from the festival and the DVD to grow the festival each year, while still keeping the ticket price low – ensuring that Jay’s music and memory will shimmer through the ages."

When considering the pros and cons of which camera to use for filming ‘Madder Than a Full Moon Dog’, we have many things to take into account. This film, being shot ‘on the fly’, will rely on the crew being on the ball and being prepared for the very real issues we’re certain to encounter.
Speaking with Dean Hinchliffe, the cinematographer for this project, we’ve been discussing the issues with DSLR cameras. DSLR cameras can give a great cinematic effect in low lights, and in that respect they’re the perfect camera for shooting this particular film, but they also bring with them a whole host of problems, the first being the sheer amount of cards we’d go through with a five-man crew shooting for an entire day. We’d either need a stack of cards at our disposal, or we’d have to offload the cards as they filled up, but that’s not ideal. It would require someone with a laptop and an external hard drive dedicating their entire day to this. Nice job!
Focus could very likely be a problem, as well. It is far more difficult to focus a DSLR quickly and, with all the fast-moving action on stage and low light throughout the venue, focusing would almost certainly be an issue. We could mount LED lights on the cameras, but these are expensive, and the cheap ones tend to strobe. Traditional tungsten camera lights use batteries like they’re going out of style, and are not really an option for an all-day shoot like this.
Speaking of strobe lights, that’s another problem with DSLRs. Same with flash photography — the cameras don’t cope well and you can end up with a strange ‘half-frame flash’ which is a pain to ‘repair’ in the edit. One way around this would be to use a traditional CCD camera as our ‘static’ and then cut to that in the edit whenever the strobe lighting effects are causing problems with the DSLRs.
On-stage recording won’t pose a problem when it comes to sound because we’ll be recording straight from the mixing desk, but we’ll certainly need to record the sound separately for the interviews and the crowd footage since the DSLRs do not have good on-board mics.
All this said, the main advantage of a DSLR is that when the footage is good it can look awesome and you can achieve that lovely cinematic shallow depth-of-field where the background is soft — which is exactly the look I’m going for.
I think the best option we have is to use a mix of DSLRs and CCDs and, though it might be a pain in the edit, it’s the only way we can have the best of both worlds.
