Vulpes-Lupus Productions
What can I say? We're a crazy bunch with too much time on our paws!
Our college offers an annual Make-A-Movie Contest where we get the digital camera for a while and use of editing equipment...they cut us loose!
You may recall last year's project: "Science Gone Mad!" Information on that project, as well as a link to the downloadable movie <and bloopers reel> make their home below! Keep reading! ^.^
This year, a slightly different team Vulpes-Lupus took use of my puppets. From there it just grew sillyer! Due to differing ideas for movies we split up this year into two teams--Amara and Andy did a stop motion film, with the aid of another friend, which required a lot of time and dedication. We wish them luck!
Our project left my dorm room drapped in dark-colored sheets and spot lighted to the point of raising the temperature to uncomfortable. It left some of us wondering how Henson ever pulled off his own projects.
Journey forth and see what became of the antics of half the original crew!

Flights of Fancy:An Educational Film On Using Your Imagination
 
The world would be awfully boring without our imaginations! In a black and white film framed after those sappy 50's hygiene films, the Vulpes-Lupus Production crew takes a journey through their favorite world to live in--the land of make-believe!
Fun Production Quotes

"Loosing blood flow to hand...blood flowing to head."

"I learned today that I'm a contortionist!"

"Llama...it's such a cool word, it has 2 Ls. Llama."

"You're invading my personal bubble!"

"Rusty's my 'special' friend!"
"Oh dear...CUT!"

"Umm..my hand doesn't turn that way at this angle."

Science Gone Mad!
Last year the was the first year our college offer the Make-A-Movie competition. We all jumped at the chance to mess with our Hollywood daydreams! Thus, in a matter of a week or so the original team of Vulpes-Lupus Productions was formed. It consisted of Andy Vercnocke, Amara Whittle, Ben Lien, and Jennie Silvernail. The name originates from the primary characters Andy and I use in our comics--Vuples-Rusty the red fox, and Lupus-Basko Wolf. The movies concept came to us by way of Andy who wanted to do a B-movie involving clones. The idea stuck, and never wavered! I, for one, am glad it didn't! On a cold evening we borrowed the camera and took over Pastuer Hall, where the entirity of the 10 minute movie was filmed. Oddly enough, on of the hallways and classrooms we filmed in no longer exists, it was pulled down  At the competition we took second in Best Storyline...which is a bit ironic with a B-movie plot...oh well. :) The key is, we had fun! I don't have production stills for this one as we didn't use Ben's digital camera to capture the moments. ;/ I'll try to find something though!
