Did I mention E.L.M.er work. I know it's been a while since I've mentioned it, but we are working full steam ahead with developing a series of short films based off the two leads Nathan and E.L.M.er and of course a series of commercials for Schpritz! We are working diligently to get the website going for progress pics and video-blogs of work putting together this endeavor. Maybe even appearances of the characters. I hope to start filming the short films in New York City in July. Yes, I am planning to move to New York in July. I just need some work now to save for the move.
We hope to have the website up in the next couple of weeks as well as an indiegogo fundraising campaign. We have a facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/ELMer/133472166682905
We would appreciate you liking our page. We will also be putting art up as we go along and possibly adding a fan art section. If you're interested in know below is description of the film and a couple of concept drawings.

and by the way this is what happens when your robot buddy goes up against cylons: They CYLONIZED!
We are still in the throws of having moved. When you have less stuff it makes it easier to rearrange and set back up. But at least I have computer area, drawing table and workshop tools set up for commissions and E.L.M.er work.
