    Actually there is another stop-motion Poe project out there -- George Higham's outstanding Annabel Lee, for which we have a review. I'm glad to see another one on its way as well.

    I did an interview with George for this site a few years back when I visited his studio. Glad to see you dug Annabel Lee.

    Last I heard from him he was doing 3D image tarot cards, involving some special photography of puppets he would create.
