The Slimy Green Prince

I haven't had a chance to see any movies yet this summer so I decided to post artwork for the one I'm working on. I received a grant to make a short stop-motion animation about a frog prince and this is a poster I just finished for it.  I made 8 puppets from random junk (wires, pleather, clay, tape, etc...) With help from Ma I became pretty decent at sewing these things. I'm hoping to have it complete by the end of August.
This is a page of concept sketches I did before designing the frog puppet. It takes a lot of scribbling for me to come up with characters I like. 
This is the teaser trailer.  A friend pointed out the typo at the end so don't worry, i already know. I tried fixing it but am having too many problems with Quicktime and YouTube so I decided to just leave it.  ...This is actually my first post. I joined a year ago and completely forgot I joined.  I plan on contributing to the page now, but definitely won't be able to until I finish this beast.  Much work ahead!

this is cool.. can please fix the formatting of the video post so it doesn't break the blog page in fire fox? I think you can just post it straight through the blog posting rather than using youtube embedded link.
