Beaver Creek Episode Six is OUT NOW!!!! After a really really long time I finally finished this episode. Here is the link-

I am happy with it... but I don't really matter, tell me what YOU think about it. Tell me anything, what you like, what you didn't like, favorite moment, anything. Oh, feel free to ask questions.
So, grab a box of Stick-O's, sit back, relax, and watch Beaver Creek Episode Six.

That was great Ian!!
I especially loved meeting Twigs' family and the twist at the end!
I did cringe, however everytime I heard the name "Slappy" due to a family friend with the name Slappy Wag ending his life last night.

Great animation though!!

Another fantastic episode of Beaver Creek!
The catapult scene worked really well & I loved the supermarket !
The new set and new characters look great!

Any chance of seeing any behind the scene images??!
I look forward to seeing Twigs and his friends in more episodes in the future!
Keep up the good work! :D

Excellent! I love Beaver Creek. I'm incredibly impressed with your films. How many Beaver Creeks will there be- have you decided yet?

Thanks, everyone, glad you like it!
vincent I actually have some good behind the scenes stuff from this one, I will get some stuff off my camera tonight and put it on here. There is some good trivia that I can post too!

P.S. Ellie M, thank you so much!

Here is some general trivia.

This episode starts out differently from all the others, the others start with wide shots, this one starts with a close up on the banjo and zooms out.

That first shot was reshot 4 different times, because I didn't like it.

When the bottle is floating in the water, it is a different bottle than Twigs picks up, when it is in the water, it is a little differently shaped and about half the size.

Twigs addresses the two baby beavers as "kits" the name for a baby beaver.

Home Treepot is a play on words of Home Depot

The Home Treepot exterior only has three sides and is about the same hight as Twigs.

On the found objects shelf most of the things I have actually seen as trash lying in creeks, you can also see the insta lodge box, and drakes sunglasses

The bag of mud says "silty mud" silt is the kind of mud on the bottom of ponds.

When Slappy is throwing the mud, I was using a depth perception trick it is actually on the ground and even stuck to drake on some frames.

The mud throwing, mud catching, and the fishing pole were all rotoscoped.

The dinner table is a piece of craft wood I cut on the sides and glued sticks for legs.

The painting of the tree is actually a real painting on a piece of canvas.

The crunching sounds are me chewing on pretzels.

The mom's eyelashes are whiskers from a cat doll.

The paper airplane is less than an inch long.

When Twigs reads Drake's letter and says "Dear Drake, that's you" is a reference to the show HEE HAW listen at about 15 seconds in.
