After several looong weeks in the sweltering confines of the Red Hatchet Films studio, ADVENTURES WITH THE AMBERSONS, Episode 3 is almost finished! The hapless Ambersons find themselves stuck in Salem, MA, during the height of the witch-hunt hysteria and meet lots of new friends. I thought the previous episode was tough because of all the action, but subtlety is much more challenging. There's a lot of character stuff going on in this episode...not to mention PAGES of dialogue that had to be animated. Had some serious puppet issues this time around which I'll bitch about later...and did I mention it's really HOT? A couple weeks more, and it'll all be worth it.

Congratulations! Can't wait to see more.

You disappear for months at a time -- but then when you come out of seclusion... HEY! Look, another film! I admire how hard you're working this. :-D

Puppet issues with Sculpey III? That sucks! Have you tried mixing in some silly putty? Since both are polymers, the combination of the two might prevent cracking.

Michael, the stills look great, looking forward to seeing it unfold, I guess it's not a good idea to time travel in halloween costumes :-)
