“Join Teddy the Cat, Leslie the Dog, and their friend Farrier the Steam Engine, as they set out on an uproarious quest through the Pennsylvanian countryside to save their friend from being kicked out of his home!”
This live-action animation short was filmed back in September and October of 2018 at the famous indoor miniature model railroad layout Roadside America in Shartlesville, Pennsylvania, only a 20 minute drive from where I live. I wrote, directed, shot, edited, and composed for this project, but had a lot of talented help.
Matt Michaud was the man who got the whole operation in motion, and Roadside America’s Jon Jordan help make it possible to film during the display’s off-days. We shot this in about 4/5 days of shooting, with 2 hours of footage.
