Just a quick update to let you all know that we are moving right along with the cut of “Under the Smogberry Trees: The True Story of Dr. Demento and Mr. Hansen”. So many hours have been spent in front of the computer, pouring through the hours of footage we have shot and collected, that we are rarely sure if its day or night outside. There will be enough here to not only create a fantastic documentary celebrating the life and career of Barry Hansen, but to create enough bonus DVD features to stuff a fish head. There is some exciting news coming soon about new artwork, animation, and more. For now it’s just more hours of piecing together this demented puzzle. In the meantime, we have posted a short glimpse at the footage we have of Barry Hansen and many of his friends and collaborators celebrating a life of laughter and influence. Who knew so many big celebs could relate to those of us who grew up pretending to be asleep late on Sunday nights while recording tapes of “The Dr. Demento Show”, or dragging our feet at school Monday morning while still chuckling to ourselves about what we heard?
I hope you enjoy this peek Under the Smogberry Trees.
