You may remember that a year ago we put out a call for you to get involved with the production of Orpheus & Eurydice, by helping to fund some puppet making materials. We are pleased to be able to say that we have started to dispatch headstones now that they have come down from the set, and the associated imdb credits have been submitted.
(2 of 2) We only have two more scenes to shoot, and will be using the Christmas break to finish it. We will also have Chris back to help us get these last scenes in the bag.
See you soon!

despite the current pandemic, shooting has continued on Orpheus and Eurydice, directed by Saranne Bensusan. This week we shot Orpheus’s musical number, with help of the footage shot of musician Andy Hylden when he recorded the music.
The set for Orpheus & Euydice has taken a huge step forward as the animation platform has been constructed in front of the red screen that will be used for chromakeying. We’d like thank the film’s director, Saranne Bensusan, for her tireless work in constructing this platform and getting us to this stage.
Saranne Bensusan‘s stop-motion animation, The Hunting of the Snark, is now available to watch worldwide on tubi.tv. The film is based on Lewis Carroll’s final poem of the same name and features Joerg Stadler of Saving Private Ryan as the Bellman leading an unlikely group that have come together with the one goal on hunting a Snark, regardless of the fact that none of them know what it is.
On Sunday, director Saranne Bensusan took one of Hades faces from the RTV mold that it had been used to create and from there started work on the next one.
Yesterday saw some the progression of the head carvings into two piece mould from which we will be able to make the heads for characters along with the interchangable faces to allow them to speak.
Chris started off by cleaning up any spillage that had reulted from pouring the backs of the heads so that we’t be able to get nice clean impressions of the front. This was then followed by Saranne pouring RTV for the front s to get impressions of the faces.
the Poster for our latest production, a stop-motion animation of Orpheus & Eurydice, was published today. Initially posted to the social media platform twitter just after 15:00, the poster features artwork from long term collaborator Chris Wright, who has worked on many of our projects since he -produced The Hunting of the Snark.
