|Horror! Bird Satan stalks unsuspecting lovers.|
Up on Tabor yesterday, I encountered a group of enthusiastic young folks, collectively known as Ragdoll movies, at work on a video. The video, entitled "Atomic Nuclear Bird Satans from Saturn" is set for release (on YouTube) in about two weeks. Lead actor Peter Litster described the flick as a "Fifties horror spoof."
The scene they were filming involved two young lovers sitting on a park bench, enraptured with each other and blithely unaware of the approach from behind of a Saturnine Bird Satan. I don't think it ends well.

("Give it time," scoffs the jaded middle-aged artist. "They'll come around." Well, yes, they certainly will. But there is no point in plucking the petals off a rose in bloom, eh?)

Ragdoll movies already has a few shorts under its belt (check out the website here). I perused some of their stuff and rather enjoyed it.
Youth's natural optimism is balm for the soul, I tell ya.
