"Are you guys done yet?"

We hear that ALOT.

Jon here....

That’s it.  

A wrap.  

All that's left is tweaking in the editing room...

Jim’s been doing most of the explaining of what we’re up to, and a while ago he even shared a story about our first attempt to make this movie a few years ago.

The whole thing fell apart as we were shooting it.  The only two things about that first attempt that was ready was our drive to do it and the puppets.

I’m glad it fell apart.  It gave us a chance to wait, and do it right.

And this one is right.

We got lucky, we got an awesome cast, the puppets look better than ever, we had helpful locations, and everyone we know seems to have given up at least a couple hours of their life to help make “Josh and Todd”

So why am I going over all this?

Well… I'm happy with the movie…

Very happy.

So as we finished shooting the re-shoots this past summer I started thinking about the starts of this film.  I started remembering building the original Todd and Johnnie puppets.  I started thinking about the show that came out of (not) making the movie, called “It’s Late Enough with Plink” and I started laughing about me breaking my toe while building sets in my old apartment with Russ there.  And remembering breaking Jim in with puppets, and on and on and on…

But I’m gonna save those stories for the DVD so you’ll have to buy it.

I just want to say thanks to all the cast and crew and everyone else who made “Josh and Todd” possible, you all mean the world to me.  And I can’t wait to work with all of you again, even Gabe.


Jon.  I'm just a guy, I try to smell good.

ps...  screening in Feb 2011, date to be announced soon!!!
