Walkhighlands features 43 walks that visit one of Scotland's remarkable collection of lighthouses. Taking all manner of shapes and sizes, these sentinels of the sea usually provide striking landmarks for those exploring on foot, as well as acting as a warning to boats out on the water.

I had been trying to figure out where John Stewart got his Mitch McConnell voice from. Initially I thought he'd been inspired by the character of Churchy La Femme, from Walt Kelly's Pogo comic strip. I figured, he'd read the strip, and come up with a voice that matched the look of that classic turtle character... But, I'd totally forgotten about Cecil Turtle - And, it's clearly Mel Blanc's Cecil, who John Stewart is doing.

We have reached the half-way point in this short campaign. There are six days left to go, and we have reached 27% of our target funding.

I am so encouraged by the support people have been showing for the project, myself, and the campaign. The following six days are crucial for the film, and so I am going to be putting out some new bits and pieces over the coming few days to drum up some more interest in the project.

It’s my hope you’ll join me in spreading the word about the project, and pushing towards that target funding goal.

Tomorrow, I will post a little video about the process I’ve been going through in building vortex42studios… The upcoming completion of the studios is the very reason Echo is being made – To celebrate a process which has taken several years of planning, and several months of constant building work, to achieve.

So, I hope you’ll look forward to seeing that, as much as I look forward to showing you.

Once again – At this half-way marker – Thankyou for your continued support!

Storm damage, bitches.

Lost some trees, but more importantly, we lost important sections of our roof. I liked those trees. To be fair... I liked those bits of roof too. :/

Looks like an act of God, I'd go see a local place of worship for some damages.

Hello - Here is the third video update for the Echo Campaign on Indiegogo. Five days left to go

People - This next few days, is when I really need to ramp up support for the project. If there is anything any of you can do, be it a contribution or helping get the word out to interested people, this is the time to be doing it. Let's make the next few days count for Echo. :)

This video update is about building vortex42studios. Please contribute if you can, to help me mark the completion of the studio construction, with this unique short film featuring stop motion animated creature effects. :)

We came, we saw, we conquered natural selection. It should come as no surprise that I didn't actually speak to David Attenborough* recently.
