So, yeah. We did a thing. Trey knew this was coming just as much as you did, and exactly what he'll think of all this has been a subject of great interest among our cohort. We all very much hope he doesn't hate us now.

This was pretty much Holden's idea. I made the puppet, Dorkman puppeteered, Anthony Alba did the narration as well as Tokes' arms for a few shots. Alex Ruger from Uncomposed played Stokes. Paulou shot it. Cloe, Dorkman, and I wrote it - with some help from iJim. Zarban executive produced. (In the traditional definition.) Alex did the original god damned score. That's not library music, people, that's the dude from Uncomposed farting out a pitch-perfect theme song for us. Eric Webb produced. And pretty much all of those names could be attributed "assistant director," too. I did a lot of VFX.

Anyway, this coming weekend there'll be a whole Intermission about this, but I might get ornery and leak it before then. If I do, no complainin' about not getting a second release next weekend.  big_smile

Are those clips from the entire season's run? Does he save the president in one of the earlier episodes? When are you guys doing a flashback clips episode?

Re: April Fools // "Tokes and Stokes"

Also, among all our cracking up during filming, the one thing that kept coming up was...

"...god damn, puppets are hard. We wish Trey were here."


Making puppets, puppeteering puppets... it's a nightmare. Mike did a fantastic job making my hunk of styrofoam look like a bad-ass.

(And, of course, Alex did a fantastic job playing a bad-ass. And also composing that score, my god.)

We really need a line separating the signature from the body of the post.

Either Holden is seriously on his game tonight, or there already is a line.

Re: April Fools // "Tokes and Stokes"

You're right. It was below my iPad screen resolution's event horizon. Anyway that post felt like it took a real turn.

TOKES AND STOKES!
