Little update and a workshop...

Jon here with a quick "Josh and Todd" update for ya!
We've been working away on touching up the film and getting the DVD bonus features ready!  
More to come soon...  Including screening announcements!

But in the meantime...
Wanna make a puppet with me?.....

Puppet Maker Jon Bristol of The Elmwood Puppets will be holding a three day workshop in July at Paris In Plantsville!

Learn how to make a Muppet/Henson style moving mouth puppet like Steve the Vampire!
All the materials and tools are included in the registration fee, and space is limited, so it's first come first serve.
At the end of the workshop you'll have a completed puppet, and you get to keep the pattern and tools and leftover material for future use!
The dates are July 11, 18, and 25 2011 (all Mondays) from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
The total cost is $150.00, a $50.00 deposit* holds your spot in the workshop and the rest is due the first day.
To sign up or for more information contact the instructor, Jon, at or stop by Paris In Plantsville
* The deposit is non-refundable, but if you have to cancel we'll put it toward a future workshop if you sign up for one!

A little update!

Jon here...
It may seem like we're asleep at the wheel over here with this flick, but we're not!
I swear!  Hahaha!
After two weekends of successful screenings Russ, Jim, and I have been going over the flick with the so called fine tooth comb and looking at goofs, slow spots, and missing jokes and fixing the film up!
We have more screenings coming up (we'll be announcing them soon!) and we're about to start prepping the DVD release!  We'll have goodies on it for ya like a commentary, bloopers, and a making of thing, and a few other surprises.
Thanks for sticking with us on the ride
