This project has made me stress and challenge my patience, but I'm not giving up on it. The pace of production gives off the impression that there will be one episode released a year; this is not how I intend to release the series.
'A Bad Look Out' is coming along nicely, most of the conversation between Culdee and the Skarloey Railway engines has been finished and I'm pleased that it is out of the way. Scenes with Godred have been filmed, unfortunately not his accident, however I am indeed coming close to animating the dark side of these stories; which is what inspired me to adapt these for YouTube.
With the unexpected success of the 'Mountain Engine' episode, the other stories are carefully being adapted from the railway series to suit a television audience.
After much consideration and development, it is now official that a song will be written for the Culdee Fell Railway. The song is to feature not only a catchy and upbeat techno style, but will be informative and generally educational through the lyrics; mostly explaining how a mountain railway works.
Another thing to note is that whilst I film scenes for 'A Bad Look Out' I am also filming for the other episodes also. Several shots of Lord Harry have been animated and I'm animating extra stock footage if I should ever need it in episodes or for music videos.
