Y'all say hello to my new friend and collaborator, Tommy Keiser. This hot young desperado is new-ish to L.A., having moved out here last October after graduating from the University of Arts in Philly, PA. Our paths almost crossed at the H.P.Lovecraft Film Festival where his stop-mo film, COLLECTALL & HYDE was playing in the same block as DREDD MANOR and FROM BEYOND. HPLFF Founder Andrew Migliore (who picked up COLLECTALL & HYDE for distribution thru his company, Lurker Films) introduced us via email, and soon after the intrepid TK (or "Wiki-Wiki" as GG has nicknamed him) was offering his skills to be put to use on ADVENTURES WITH THE AMBERSONS. Having him around has taken an unbelievable amount of stress out of the process, both in terms of the building and animating and also just by breaking up the long, monotonous hours with human camaraderie. To see what he's all about, go check out his great webpage at www.TommyKeiser.com. You can see his films on there along with great shots of his puppets and sets. Sign his guestbook and tell 'im Mike sent ya...

Tommy's the first ever employee of Red Hatchet Films beyond myself, but he's definitely become part of the tribe!
