WALLACE & GROMIT CHAT » BEAVER CREEK EPISODE SEVEN
Beaver Creek Episode Seven is in production. The story is all finished, and about half of the dialogue is done. I can hopefully start shooting end of this week I am waiting for some new light reflectors, then I will be on my way! I think this episode should be great, lots of funny stuff, and a good story to go right with it!
This episode has one new character, I think he is gonna be a really good character!
I am not going to tell you what kind of animal he is (not a beaver) but I will tell you who voices him.
He is voiced (and sung) by........ *drumroll*....... John Gage!
now I know you're thinkin'.... Who is John Gage?
John Gage is sort of a legend in Louisville. He is a folk singer/story teller/minister. He is the founder and host of popular radio show "Kentucky Homefront" which features different musicians from all over the state. John has a great voice, it is just very warm and nice. The character he plays is not too different from himself... lets put it this way.... there was no second choice for this character, either John can do it, or I don't use the character, but luckily he could, and did, all of his dialogue is done and sounds great! He also sings a great little song with Twigs.
If you want to see, or hear a little of him you can watch this video! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KXVnq24Aq-I
and here is his bio http://www.kentuckyhomefront.org/john_gage.html
I will keep you posted on production and stuff!
i can't wait
Wow I cant wait, im looking forward to seeing what animal the new character will be
Good luck with it, Ian!
Shooting has been going good! Well, sorta, I have had a few problems, but nothing that I didn't eventually get.
I have a little more than a minute completed, I animated the first shot with the new character today, it looks really good!
I also had something kind of cool happen.
Some of you have probably hear of an actor named William Mapother, he has been in a bunch of stuff, like "Lost" and all kinds of stuff. you can take a look here http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0544611/
but anyway, he went to my High School, and he saw the stuff I has been doing and he wanted to meet me, so he came over last week, and I showed him my studio and how i animate and stuff.
I had another little character in this episode with just a few lines, and William said he would do it, so we got him in the booth and Beaver Creek Episode Seven has a cameo from William Mapother.
Great! Can't wait for the next episode Ian!!

Beaver creek is amazing, I have watched it from the begining and they just keep getting better. Cant wait to see the new one when its finished.
I just watched episode 7 on youtube, It's Great! I loved John Cage's character 'John Bear'. I also liked how his Teddy Bear got stuck in a trap. It was a bit comical.
I also loved the character of the Turtle, voiced by William Mapother.
Once again it was a very comical video! Keep up the good work =]
