Monday Morning Song

We're making a horror movie called "HEAD"!

Drinking coffee, going over a million weekend messages, looking at the new puppets being built on my workbench.  Not a bad start to a Monday.

Elmwood on Kickstarter!

So for about 13 years me and the Elmwood gang have been making movies.  
Shorts, features, web-series, and so on.
We've had screenings, live events, gone to conventions, and even a few contests to give away puppets…  And we've never really bugged ya for much back, other than donations to the venues, or to be a fan on Facebook, or subscribe to our YouTube

And now we are.  
We've set up a Kickstarter for our next (and second) feature film.
It's called "HEAD" and it's a horror film.
Yeah, I know we usually do comedy.  
Yeah we know horror isn't everyone's cup of tea.

But we're doing it the Elmwood way.  With puppets.  And as far as I know it's the first time a horror movie is being made with all puppets, and being played straight.  For scares, not laughs!

We're making the movie with or without Kickstarter.  It's a movie I've wanted to make for a while, and the rest of the Elmwood gang is all for it.  But a little help never hurts.  And with that help this will be the best movie we can possibly make.

So after all he free watching of "Steve the Vampire" on YouTube you can possibly handle feel free to throw us a buck.  Of five.  Or whatever you want to.  We're got some cool incentives for contributing too, from downloads of "Josh and Todd" to custom puppet portraits!
I thank you.
You're helping me make my dreams come true, and that's pretty cool.

Here is the Kickstarter link
And you can follow the making of Head here 

Thanks again for checking it out, and thanks for liking what we do!!!

Bee thinking about Robin Williams, as many have.  Never met him or anything.  Just really feel bad for all his loved ones.

It was "Popeye" that introduced me to Robin Williams…
I was 5.
Between that movie, and seeing "The Muppet Movie" a year before, that made me want to be a guy who makes movies…  And I'm pretty sure the two flicks had a bit of influence on my taste in music too.
Hope you've found peace Mr. W…
