The Runaway, up and running!

The Runaway is now up for your viewing pleasure!
A pretty easy episode to film, but I did have some trouble with Harold... All and all, great shoot, great episode! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Be sure to keep an eye out for some more HQ episodes from the television series this week too! 

And feel free to leave comments!

Thomas, Percy and the Coal released!

I present the nineteenth episode of Season 3, Thomas, Percy and the Coal!

This is probably the hardest I've worked on an episode in a long time. A long time! First of all the coal was real charcoal. To get it into a rough power I smashed it with a hammer for about fourty-five minutes. In case you didn't know charcoal is really really hard (much harder than I anticipated anyway...). Despite the time consuming process needed to make the coal look to scale, I am incredibly glad I did it! The coal looks amazing and I can't imagine it looking this good had I done it any other way! I hope you all enjoy the episode!

Don't be shy! Leave a comment! :P 

More About Thomas the Tank Engine kick off coming soon!

This weekend I'll be releasing Thomas, Percy and the Coal to kick of my reenactments of the Railway Series book More About Thomas the Tank Engine.

I planned to remake these stories in Season 2, but my 24 episode season was too full for four more episodes. I look forward to giving you all four stories (Drip Tank included!) in the next few weeks! I hope you enjoy them!

Percy, James and the Fruitful Day Released!

All worries aside I think this turned out great!

The fruit was real fruit! The lighter stuff was banana and the darker fruit was mango. While not the messiest adventure for either Percy or James it was the messiest of the season. I look forward to more messes in Season 4! Also that crash was HARD. It was perhaps one of the most difficult I've had to do so far and I'm still not 100% satisfied with the results! Also getting Percy to go over the broken points was a challenge in it of itself! Be sure to watch out for an outtakes video soon!

Also be sure to watch the episode below!

Percy, James and the Fruitful Day thoughts

I'm going to begin filming my second TV series only episode today, and to be honest I'm a bit nervous. This will be pretty messy and I have no idea what the fruit will be made of!

All and all though I'm pretty excited! This should be lots of fun!  Anyway with luck the episode will be out today or tomorrow! :)

Duncan's Whistle released!

This episode is adapted from the Small Railway Engine story Faulty Whistles. I think the adaptation worked well.  I had a great time filming this (minus a panic-enduing iMovie error) and am very pleased with the final project! Next up is Percy, James and the Fruitful Day! Stay tuned!
