This image is sort of crappy, a quick photochop. So I'm finally doing it. I'm going to start on my short film (10 to 15 minutes). It's based on the Bak' was. You can read more about it here. It's name is sometimes spelled differently, but I think this version looks the coolest.

So this blog will slowly become a production blog for a little bit.

If you're too lazy to click the link...shame on you. But here's a description of the Bak'was:

Ba„was is the Wild Man of the Woods, literal translation "man of the ground embodiment". He is small in size and is the Chief of ghosts or spirits, the spiritual embodiment of everything in the forest. He has a green hairy body and skeletal face with prominent cheekbones and a hooked nose that curves to touch his upper lip. He lives in the country of ghosts and is the Chief of Woodsmen and keeper of drowned souls. It is unusual to see a Ba„was but be careful if you do because it is said that he will entice you into his world by offering you food. Ba„was especially likes to find warriors and hunters and capture them by luring them to eat his cursed food. The food looks appetizing like smoked salmon or berries but is poisoned and when a starving hunter comes along and eats it, he will become one of the Ba„was spirits. Ba„was eats slugs and snails, but his favourite food is cockles, found only in our area, and dug from the sand on the beach. Generally he is shy and afraid of humans.

A unique post

Hey all, I usually don't post about other sites or stores, but I adore this gals jewelry and want to promote it. It's rare that beauty and darkness blend so well.

I first found out about it while researching if anybody made jewelry out of teeth (I wanted to buy my baby girls teeth back from the tooth fairy and make a necklace out of them for her sixteenth birthday. I think it's sweet, my wife....not so much; but she has teeth issues.). I came across Charlotte Burkhart's Etsy site. At the time I didn't know it, but she's the sister of someone I know.

I still want to commission that necklace, but I also want some more of Charlotte's wares. I find these pieces particularly stunning:

I want that knuckle ring for the Lab. Gorgeous stuff. Beautiful inspiration.

Here's her Etsy site: http://www.etsy.com/shop/charlotteburkhart
