working on "the whisperer in darkness"

Big news! Very exciting! Abrupt change of plans!

I'm going to be making several armatures for the feature film, The Whisperer in Darkness.

TWiD is being produced by the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society -- the folks who created the definitive film version of The Call of Cthulhu. Like Cthulhu, TWiD will be filmed in luscious black and white -- but this time it's going to be a "talkie."

The opportunity to work on the project was too good to pass up. My own Lovecraftian film, Let Sleeping Gods Lie, will be on hold until further notice. Due to a non-disclosure agreement, I won't be able to share much about the particulars of the project… But expect to be seeing more posts about metal working and joint fabrication.

For those who want to delve deeper, the story that the film is based on is available online in its entirety at several sites, including Mythos Tomes.
