A big part of the process at this stage was editing the board in Final Cut with sound to it and editing stuff out to get close to the time we wanted, also before even starting the board or conception of what the trailer might be i talked to Seamus, Mark and Chris about what would be possible in terms of the number of shots, puppets and sets they could build.

So here's something very exciting I've been working on for a while and have been waiting to share and it's finally time. It's the stop motion book trailer for THE GREAT LOLLIPOP CAPER! Made by the incredible and super talented guys at SCREEN NOVELTIES with a lot of extra help by Joe Schmidt (and i mean really a lot of extra help by Joe Schmidt which I'll go into later when i do the "making of" posts). I've been dying to work with Screen Novelties ever since I first met them a really, really long time ago.
I've been such a huge fan of everything they've done, when they agreed to make this trailer for me I really felt like I won the lottery. I love this thing so much and loved the whole process of making it, it's one of my very favorite things I've ever worked on in a long list of favorite things I've worked on. I'll be doing some behind the scenes "making of" posts to show how long and involved the process was. Thank you Screen Novelties, you are the best!!!
The video i could imbed here is a little small, to see it larger and in more glory go here

A: The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books on April 20th at USC.
Q: Will Dan be there reading his new book THE GREAT LOLLIPOP CAPER on stage and chucking Caper Flavored Lollipops into the audience?
If you're not doing anything on Saturday come to the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books at USC and watch me read my new book THE GREAT LOLLIPOP CAPER. I will almost certainly forget what i was going to say on stage and pit out my shirt. Don't miss it!
