The Take Magazine is out now, with the article on Elmwood in it!
It's available in New England at Barnes & Noble, Whole Foods, and Big Y, along with a ton of cool indy shops too!
More about the article HERE.

For the article Take sent Paul Specht to the studio to snap some pics...  They used one in the piece,  
Paul was cool enough to send me a few others...   

And this one is my favorite!!!

My birthday is tomorrow.  
I'll be 43!  Glad to have made it this far and looking forward to at least 43 more!
Some nice folks have been asking me what I "want" for my birthday. 
Not an easy question, especially as I get older.
I have what I need - an awesome wife, and family.  Great friends who I love.  A roof over my head.  
So really I don't need anything!
I want YOU to be happy...

And I also have Elmwood Productions...
My creative outlet.  My passion.  I love puppetry and the films we make.
So I do want for something.  I want to do more -
So if you really feel like you need to spend money on me then I'll ask this - 
Help me and the Elmwood gang keep working!  Rent or buy a flick from our page HERE, or copy and paste this link - 
- and share it on your social media!  Your support keeps Elmwood going.  And your support is a better gift than anything else I can think of!

No matter what I want to thank you!
Thanks for even thinking of me!
Means the world to me!

Elmwood's working on a bunch of horror related projects at the moment.  Straight horror and comedic horror...
And it got me thinking about a film we never did, called "Leave".  
I wrote about it a bit back in 2015 when we were just about to release HEAD.  
And I remembered the blog we set up for it.  And it's still there!  All the content was deleted except for a little promo for HEAD that was posted in 2015 as well...
I have a DVD of auditions, and some art I did for it - costume designs and monsters, and that's about as far as it goes for anything in the Elmwood archives.  
Makes me wonder what if?  Ya know?
The flicks we went on to do are amazing.  Still though, I wonder what that flick would have been!  Would it have been any good?  Who knows!?
Maybe someday we'll just do it...  With puppets!  But I guess that's not entirely up to me, hahaha...

Anyway...  Back to writing...  
There's a vampire everyone's been waiting to see again!

Update! -4/13/18
Found the video...  Was never really meant for public viewing, just for the Elmwood gang - But here it is, enjoy!
