Supporting the locals

Even if the new Coraline movie was not done by Laika (previously Will Vinton Studios) Animation Studio here in Portland, Oregon, I would have to see it because it is a Neil Gaiman story.

I met a few guys that worked on the film when they stopped by to see our graveyard display and asked them all kinds of questions. Importantly, did they know if Neil liked it.

They said yes. I was very happy, because next to Clive Barker, he is my favorite author (living.) And that is great story and a bit creepy for a kids story, and I was afraid they would tone it down too much. They said it was definitely "good and creepy."

If I was not already happy because it was October.....talking to them put me in a fantastic mood.

I can hardly wait!!

Better yet, they are going to film the Graveyard Book. Fantastic book, do yourself a favor and buy it. You will not regret it.
