  We are very excited about working 
  on our new documentary “LEGENDS 
  OF FILM & FANTASY” currently in
  production, release date: fall 2009.
  We recently interviewed actor DON
  SULLIVAN, from the 1950’s classic
  “drive-in thrillers” - “Monster Of 
  Piedras Blancas” & “The Giant Gila
  Monster”, with insights into the tight
  budgets and shooting schedules.
                                   While in Los Angeles, last summer,
                                   we were filming new interviews with

                                   of effects & prop studios, and artist, 
                                   MAT FALLS of “Sideshow Collectibles”

  ahead, for our new four-hour, 2-disc documentary.  Everyone has 
  been extremely supportive - a special thanks to CHRIS GILMAN & 
  his “GLOBAL EFFECTS STUDIOS”,  without his 
  help, much of this new documentary would not

Comments from MARK HAMILL on our “Phantom” documentary


"The new documentary, "UNMASKING THE MASTERPIECE" is fantastic! I loved every minute and didn't want it to end. Although the running time is 105 minutes, if you're like me, it will take you hours to finish. I couldn't resist freeze-framing throughout, with all the beautifully restored posters, lobby cards, rare stills and much appreciated looks at the makeups for each and every Phantom. Plus the current Broadway Phantom Hugh Panaro, actually displays the three prosthetic pieces he wears and gives a detailed description of the process he undergoes. A phenomenal treat for film fans and Phantom freaks alike! - I really did love it, and can't wait to see it again!"

Farewell to LOUIS NOBLE GAGNON (1920 - 2013)

My uncle passed away on Thursday July 26th at 92, after a heart attack the

day before. Uncle Louie did all the electrical work on “The Witch’s Dungeon”,

as well as creating the elaborate gadgets in the sets for “The Fly” and

“Frankenstein’s Monster”. He was a veteran of World War II, serving in

Europe during several key battles, including “D-Day”. Louie was also a

master model builder, he machined out of metal exact scale model trains.

As a boy, he taught me how to build the Aurora monster models. His input,

ingenuity and creativity will be greatly missed. He was a kind, wonderful,

bright gentleman, loved by all who knew him. - Cortlandt Hull
