Ten Years of "Josh And Todd" - Wow!



What would you do if you woke up one morning and a monster puppet moved in with you? Well, this is what happened to Josh... Todd moved in. 

"Josh And Todd: The Story Of A Man And His Puppet" is the first feature film from Elmwood Productions. 

The full feature film is on YouTube! Rated R - Full of good ol' four letter words, a bit of sexual behavior, and some puppet nudity!  

Thank you to everyone who has supported us over the years!  We hope you enjoy this flick!

This is the end of the road for "Josh And Todd" for now.  Who knows what the future holds though! 
It's been an amazing ten years since the film was released, and it has been the gateway drug for so many folks for Elmwood Productions!  We're proud of this little low-fi flick!

Mouth Puppet from "Steve the Vampire"
We're bringing back "Steve" for more episodes!
And in doing so I'm re-making a few of the puppets.  Here's the remake of the vampire hunting vampire Joe!  He's based on the actor that played him  in the original series, Joe Calvo... 
Here's a pic of him and I from ten years ago, trying to look tough, haha..

And a picture of the original puppet with the new one.

We're slowing working on the new episodes!  Slowly...  Hahaha!

Ten Years of "Josh and Todd"!!!

Next week will be the tenth anniversary of the first screening of "Josh And Todd: The Story of A Man And His Puppet"!

The R-rated bromace comedy really helped folks find out who Elmwood is! The gateway drug to our madness! For few years after that we handed our "bootleg" DVDs of the film, and in 2015 we added it to your YouTube channel!
Check it out now for the first time, or again for some laughs!

It's raw, it's old school tech, or as the kids say, "Low-Fi"... And we love it that way!
Watch it now on YouTube!

Stay tuned for a special announcement about "Josh And Todd" next week!
And NO... It's not a sequel! Hahaha!

In the fall of 2000, my mom passed away.  I needed a change in life following that, and all the issues that came along with it. 
Everything was at a crossroads. 
The first week of February 2001 I was driving with everything I owned, my two cats, and first wife to Florida.
I was ready for a change.  And I knew Florida was just temporary from day one of the decision.  But it was a breath of fresh air to go.  And to be away for a while. 
And it was a risk.  Didn’t know anyone around.  Had to start fresh.  Which was what I wanted but also a little scary. 
This crossroads was critical, and I didn’t even know how much.  I was 26 by the time I finished unpacking in the middle of February.

I’m not a big fan of the band U2.  I’m not saying I don’t like them.  I just never really got into their music.  A few songs are awesome, for me.  Like “One” and “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me” and a few others are awesome.  But never was a guy who ran out to buy their albums.    In the fall of 2000, they released “All That You Can't Leave Behind”.  About a month after my mom passed.  I didn’t think much of the album, or it’s lead single “Beautiful Day”.  I was working at Borders in Farmington CT when it came out, in the music department.  I do remember stocking the CD, and a lot of people buying it. 
And now in February 2001 I’m working in Borders in Tampa.  And it’s still selling.

I never found a radio station I really loved down there.  So, I was always playing tapes and CDs in the car. 


After about a month down there I wasn’t feeling the joy I was hoping for.  I was doing well, and my mind was at peace with a lot of what led me to want to get away.  But I wasn’t inspired.  I wasn’t excited.  I was still stuck at that crossroad in my heart. 

So I’m driving home from work on a early spring afternoon. 
Most days, weather-wise, just blend together after a while.  Even in the short time I had been there so far. It was raining.  Hard. 
I got off the highway and made a turn to a main drag of road and the clouds all blew away.  Sun started shining like crazy. 
I remember vividly ejecting the tape I was playing and dial flipping on the radio, just to hear something different.

And the opening notes of “Beautiful Day” starts playing… 

And I smiled. 
I was a beautiful day.  And all was going to be OK.  And I paid attention to the lyrics for the first time really.  And I felt relief.  I felt a weight lifted and pressure off me. 
And I felt good. 
My foot pushed the as pedal a little harder and I kept smiling.


And today.  Today I find myself at another crossroad.  And I'm not exactly happy about it.  And I don't have to be.  It is what it is.  And I know I'll pull through.  I know I'll be OK.  I have to be.  I can't go back to being that angry young man I was.  I'm stronger now.
Today, exactly 20 years to the day I pulled out of my driveway in Elmwood the day after a blizzard to move to Florida.

 And there it was. 

It’s a beautiful day.  Don’t let it get away.
