Whilst springtime brings out the birds and the flowers and the leaves, it also brings out THE ZOMBIES! We spent the month of March shooting the night shots for episode 102, "Frank & the Zombie Girl." 

Night time is the right time for monsters.

 During the day, the villagers are free to live their lives in comfort and safety, but once the sun goes down, all bets are off. Bundle up, lock the doors, batten the hatches, shut the windows. It's monster time.

 While Frank does his best to keep the streets safe, the occasional monster slips through. And on this fateful night, a zombie horde shuffles through.

Nope. That's not a brain.

 This past month was a big shoot. We had fire effects, green screen, even a melty zombie effect which turned out AWESOME. Our homage to Raiders of the Lost Ark.

PUPPET HOSPITAL: Fighting zombies was not without casualties. Frank suffered a broken arm. But he's been repaired and is back to his old self.

 FINANCIAL REPORT: We have spent 85 percent of the budget.

We have 15 percent of the budget left.

The village is a big set, and while we completed all the nighttime shots, we are now ready to shoot the village daytime shots for episode 101, "Fun in the Sun". I think we will be in the village for  the rest of this month. Our last set is the meadow. Then we head into post-production. The goal is to deliver these episodes to you in the next couple months. Yes, the schedule keeps growing, and we are doing our best to keep you informed exactly where we are. If you have any questions, comments, conundrums, please send me an email anytime dawn@themonstershopinc.com

Thanks again for your support and patience. We are definitely closing in on something really fun and cool and the wait will be worth it. Happy April. See you in May!

best,

Dawn
