The Players are currently working on location in the basement, filming a stop-motion animated video. It’s a political take-off of a cautionary tale that you will all find familiar. The project is in the very early stages and will require an immense amount of time and patience. It is not clear when the film will be finished and ready to show, but you can be sure that it will debut before the next presidential election
