Happy Holidays to Everyone, Everywhere.

We will have 2 screenings in New England, Boston and Hartford, on Jan 5 and Jan. 6. See Events calender on this website for details. We will be exhibiting our films at the MLA (Modern Language Assoc.) conference in Boston between the 3-6 of Jan. First time in Boston in over 15 years, ever since I had to walk the aisles of the big Boston seafood trade show as the 12′ Bubba Gump Shrimp to promote a frozen food for a now defunct company. Looking forward to cold sidewalks and vapor coming from my mouth when I breath.
JOAN of Arc is on the shelf for the moment. She is ready to slay the English, but there are no other puppets to populate her world yet. I ran into more of a challenging fund raising activity than I had calculated. I also have not procured the voice of JOAN that I wanted (Bjork) … yet. The script is good and the budgets are cut to the bone, I am poised to resume work on the project in January when I have some free time. Meanwhile, several smaller video projects have come up and I will post these short content videos on a new page called Short-Shorts on Classics in Miniature website next week.
Other projects on the hearth are a TV series of the book Don Quixote by Cervantes . We are in talks with a network about producing 12 episodes.

Also, we now have a Mephisto MUG on sale for $20.00 as well as both DVDs QUIXOTE and FAUST on the website for sale.
