We've been up to our elbows in DV tape and polyfoam getting ready for 2008...
So that means we forgot to do a holiday short! Up, we're bums...
We blame Axl Rose.
Why? Why not!

Funny thing, still no new album from Axl Rose... Wonder if he asked Santa again this year...

We did!

Jon here....

Here's what's up..
Saturday September 29, 2007 is the Annual Jestercon.
What the Hell is Jestercon?
I will tell you...!!!!
Some pals of ours have a event where they hang, play games, eat food and fun stuff all day in the name of role-playing, and they bow to the role-playing gods. And it's a good time.
On that day they also like to watch films.
This year, they are watching some of ours.
And you can come watch too!
This year we will be premiering the three latest STEVE THE VAMPIRE films!
So come on out and watch them!!!
Starts at 7PM at Central Connecticut State University: Marcus White Hall, 2nd floor, The Marcus White Living Room.


So here's what you'll see from us!
Steve the Vampire Who Lives With His Mom
Steve the Vampire Who Works At The Grocery Store
Steve the Vampire Whose Mom Finds Jesus
Steve the Vampire Who Goes To A Role-Playing Game featuring some of these crazy Jesters!!!

Hope to see you there!!!

Jon here...

So spring has come and gone, we've got four Steve's under our belt, and we've got some BIG plans to the fall. Keep checking back at because we're doing another overhaul of the site and will be adding much more video and many many more pictures for your eye sockets to bug out about! And don't forget (shameless plug coming) for your Johnnie and Plink goodies! 'Get em while you can cuz we'll be changing all the mech there too to all new designs! Boo-ya! Yeah. I actually typed "Boo-ya!", If you don't like it, bite me.
On a side note, I happy to prematurely announce we're working (slowly) on our first non-puppet project, called "Debacle". It's a funny little film about two morons who have to dispose of a dead body... Think Pulp Fiction mixed with Weekend At Bernie's... Admit it, you want to know more... Well too bad, cuz I ain't telling you shit! Yet...
Anyway... drop us a line and we still have a few DVD's left of "Secrets and Other Things" if anyone wants one... drop me an email at with your address and I'll get one out to ya. Use the phrase "I want you bootleg" in the subject, otherwise I'll delete it as spam!

Take care of yourselves -
Jon Bristol
