On Friday February 17th, Southern California was pummeled with the worst torrential rain the area has received in many, many years. Los Angeles was hit with flash floods, sink holes, and a massive path of destruction in which homes and vehicles were destroyed. In a few tragic cases lives were lost in the storm. While we are grateful to report that everyone in our family was unharmed by the severe weather, unfortunately we can’t say the same for our beloved studio. Our home.
The flooding was bad. Several items from our 19 years of filmmaking (so far) were destroyed while various props and creature displays from our films were damaged. Though some of the items were irreplaceable and are now just memories, the good news is that we have already begun the clean-up work, most all of our film’s props that were damaged will be refurbished and restored, and ArieScope Pictures will most certainly live to fight another day. However, your help is greatly needed now more than ever. Please consider buying something from our on-line store or donating to ArieScope/THE MOVIE CRYPT through our “Feed Arwen A Treat” option located in our “BUY STUFF” section right here. With the help of our fans we hope to be back on our feet quickly.
Yes, this week’s episode of HORRIFIED will still premiere this Wednesday no matter what we have to do to pull it off in time. Rain or shine (or in this case- lots of rain) we always meet our deadlines. And for those who have asked via social networking… do not fear, Arwen is fine and was not harmed in the flooding. In fact, to add her own comical twist in all of this… she tried to swim in the flooded area right before going home for the evening. Arwen loves swimming and as far as she is concerned a pool is a pool… and laughter is always the best medicine.
