Seeing so many talented local artists get the chance to be part of something so joyful, and that'll be seen on such a large scale, is a real treat
It's impossible to overstate how proud we are of the QAS friends and community members who worked on the new Fraggle Rock: Back to the Rock (which is still sitting at a 100% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, fwiw). Just to be completely clear, QAS had nothing to do with Fraggle Rock whatsoever, but seeing so many talented local artists get the chance to be part of something so joyful, and that'll be seen on such a large scale, is a real treat.
The photo above was shared with us by Yvonne Mullock, who was our Chris J. Melnychuk Scholarship student back in 2016, and who was clearly having a blast as one of the Gorg Wranglers in the new production, among other roles. Her partner on the film, Kim Lennox, is the main subject in the Calgary Herald's behind-the-scenes look at the production, which also talks to Bleeding Art's Leo Wieser about his animatronic wizardry. You might remember Leo and Bleeding Arts from their screenings on the Nanton grain elevator, or their stop-motion short, Skeleton Girl, which was Canada's first stereoscopic 3D stop-motion film back in 2018.
We haven't had the chance to watch the series yet, but as soon as we get our AppleTV+ subscription set up, you know we'll be right on it. You should watch it, too.
