Update #5

Bloopers... in Space!

Comment

If these outtakes from our three-and-a-half minute Kickstarter video are any indication, our finished film is going to have a GREAT blooper reel!

Special thanks to all the puppeteers who worked on this -- they gave us great performances for the finished video and gave us great laughs while we were editing!

Feel free to spread this video around the web! We'll be adding some more Backer-only content in the next few days, so if you want to watch it, donate today!
