Today we began shooting the last five days of Season 1. Episode 12 is incredible complicated in terms of costume and set changes and even spreading the episode out over the week, all five days will be quite full. Today we shot the scenes with Cupcake (Charlie the Golden Doodle), Stickie (Shanti Cece the Giant Stick Bug), and half the scenes with Kraken (with puppeteer Brianne). Everyone did wonderfully -- so wonderfully, in fact, that I take back my earlier comments about the difficulty of working with animals. As a matter of fact, I would like to make Charlie, Shanti, and Kraken the first three actors to be invited back for Season 2 :)
Let the countdown continue!
