An actual frame from the first of the two interior shots I've animated so far.

Thanks but if I do the pendulum at all it will be a hallucination, so it can be the big one. I also want to make a beating heart, which can't be explained as really being there.

You are right, the legs are yellow and they shouldn't be. I forgot to change them before putting him in the exterior shot.

Wow I love the great details here! You could obviously see how much time and hardwork were to put to make such a great set! This is awsome!

Gorgeous. Love the keg of ale (or is it amontillado?) and the wadded up bits of paper.

Thanks Dan,
Amontillado of course!
Glad you spotted the wadded paper, since they are there to show he is having a hard time with the writing. Maybe it's because you are a writer and you've been there? I wasn't sure most people would notice so I shot a closeup of another ball of paper landing on the floor near them, as well.

Looks amazing, can't wait to see some animation, I'm sure it'll be a fantastic film.  Have you heard of the comic "the surreal adventures of Edgar Allan Poo"?  Its not as crude as it sounds, might give you some good ideas (or you might hate it!)

Funny, the wadded paper was one of the first things I noticed ... have done my share of paper wadding while writing too. I suspect will be wadding some paper shortly (will get back on my screen play after foot surgery on Thursday - understand I will be laid up for about four weeks). In any case, this should be a give me plenty of time to make some progress on my writing. Also thinking about a skeleton puppet made out of brass tubing and copper wire (soldered together) and aluminum wire for joints. I am also planning for one sixth scale.

BTW ... I love the books, and cask, and of course the Raven. The atmosphere is so thick you can almost cut it with a knife ;-)

Just a still image is beautiful to look at, and I can't wait to see things start moving. Obviously everyone already said it, but that's some truly masterful design and fabrication. You can't see, but I'm bowing and sweeping my hat of my head towards your avatar right now.
