"BOKRUG"--first looks...

I'm excited to report that Red Hatchet Films is deep in production on a new, stop motion animated project titled “Bokrug” based on the short story, “The Doom That Came to Sarnath” by H.P. Lovecraft. It's been a dream of mine to get back to working with a Lovecraft tale ever since our 2006 production of "From Beyond" proved such a blast to do. My friend Craig Mullins over at UNFILMABLE.COM suggested "Doom..." and after reading it I knew it was perfect.

"Doom..." tells the story of the decadent city of Sarnath, whose greatness is built on the destruction of an older, primitive race of beings who live in the stone city of Ib, where they worship an ancient, reptilian god called "Bokrug". On the night of the 1000th anniversary of Ib's destruction, strange forces signal that the beings of Ib are about to be avenged....

Here are a couple test shots of some of the puppets and sets. I'm hoping to have the film completed by spring of 2010.

Much more to come!

Love the Craft!
The puppets and sets for Bokrug look absolutely fantastic! I like the strongly stylized approach you've gone with. Looks like a winner - I hope to be able to buy the DVD one day.
