The Elmwood People - Rachel Ryan

Today we start a new feature on the Elmwood Productions Blog...
The Elmwood People
Once a month we're going to showcase one of the talented people who keep The Elmwood Puppets alive, and other people involved in keeping Elmwood going!

Up first...

Rachel is a native of Arizona who moved to Connecticut to be with her fiance
Chris. She is a classically trained dancer with a BFA in Dance Education
from Arizona State and
just started getting involved with Elmwood Productions in 2010.
So far she has helped puppeteer and voice Ophelia,
the female vampire who is Steve's love interest,
as well as helped to puppeteer a couple different puppets for the movie
"Josh and Todd: The Story of A Man And His Puppet"
Rachel herself was featured in a short skit with Steve the Vampire for
Halloween where she was able to show off her acting talents, as few and far
between as they may be (
That line was was her idea... We think she's great!)
Overall she's just happy to be involved creatively
in such an amazing group of talented people, and puppets.

Josh and Todd Screening!

Elmwood Productions is proud to announce and invite you to the premiere of our first feature length film; "Josh and Todd: The Story of a Man and His Puppet" on February 19, 2011 at Paris In Plantsville!

Plot Overview:
What would you do if you woke up one morning to find a monster has moved in with you? Well, this is what happens to Josh. And not only does the monster Todd move in, but he also causes complete havoc on Josh's boring life. Josh's girlfriend can't take it and leaves, his friends think he's going nuts, and all Todd want's him to do is loosen up for the first time since childhood and have some fun.

The doors open at 7:00 PM and the film starts at 8:00PM
$5.00 to get in (where else can you go to see a movie for five bucks!)

The film is not rated, be advised - this is not for kids. The film does have coarse language, adult subject matter and puppet nudity. Yes, puppet nudity. The film is still in progress. This screening will also not only entertain you (we hope!) but will also help the filmmakers as they continue to edit it before entering film festivals and release the film on DVD.

Following the screening the filmmakers (Jon Bristol, Jim Williams, and Russ Bird) along with members of the cast will be doing a question and answer session on micro-budget filmmaking, working with monsters, and other things that went along with making this film for those interested. Those not are free to hang out and enjoy the gallery also.

Feel free to RSVP on the Facebook event page by clicking here

To follow the history of the film and it's production, meet the cast and so on check out the "Josh and Todd" blog here

Happy New Year!

Another one over, and another just begun...

2010 was good...
2011 will be better...

Look for Steve the Vampire to keep biting,
Johnnie Sojive to keep his Poetry Corner strong,
and we think we may have sound an exterminator good enough to catch Bad Monster...

Also keep an eye out for the release of our first feature film:
"Josh and Todd: The Story of A Man and His Puppet"!

And two new series, Animal Behavior and Gamerz!
And the return of The Doc!

And look for announcements concerning a few non-puppet flicks!
Horror and Comedy coming your way!

Hope everyone had a good time last nite, and a better time for the rest of 2011!
