Here at Darkvale Studios, we embrace strange jobs with a deep passion. As a wise friend of ours once said, "When every ball is a curve ball, there's no such thing as a curve ball", and a great deal of our questionable expertise comes from decades of entertainment industry curve balls being thrown our way. In recent weeks, one of our long ago semi-abandoned projects, namely a pre-21st century attempt to create a theme park grade animatronic figure on a ditch-digger budget, has been rediscovered, and brought to amazing new life for a feature film project called Chasing Photons, by the deeply talented Barry D. Kirsch, photographer and filmmaker extraordinaire. The previously nameless robot, now known to a growing local steampunk community as "Tank", will have the honor of being prominently featured in this beautiful and unique film, and given an unexpected life beyond the dusty shelf in the shadows of the Darkvale Laboratories' production floor. We are thrilled to reanimate and build new features into our old clockwork friend, and look forward eagerly to the new cinematic frontiers he will be a part of. If you wish to stay in touch with Tank's amazing prospects, please like and follow The Portrist and the works of Barry D. Kirsch on FaceBook, and witness the early efforts of an amazing new vista in modern film making. Honestly, the humbling nature of this project puts us in a place above snide commentary for at least one blog. No worries, we'll be our usual sarcastic selves in a week or so. As always, please like and share our humble website with your friends and loved ones, and stay tuned for this and many other exciting future projects. The future is bright, and with your support, local movie cameras will capture some of it. Thank you all again, and so long for now.
