As we were working our way out of the Hilton we… WHAT’S THIS?! Our very own paparazzi moment with none other than Steven Spielberg! Surprisingly, the directing legend is making his first-ever Comic-Con appearance to receive his career achievement award from the events organizers. Also promoting his new venture with Lord of the Rings Director Peter Jackson, “The Adventures of Tintin,” Spielberg made a surprise announcement to make us giddy with anticipation: after over a decade, he’ll be returning to the land before time to Direct Jurassic Park 4! Rawrrrr!
Next-up we tracked over to the Marriott Marquis where Paul Andrejco was showing his Puppet Heap Moving Picture Co. feature “I Knew An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly.” A story of gluttony, obsession and veterinary gastronomy, wherein a monstrous series of events inevitably blankets a disquieted seaside village in a strange place… Sound dark? It is. This new look at the age-old arts of puppetry and folk tales will capture your imagination. Check it out at http://www.puppetheap.com.
