Hey all,

I sincerely hope that there aren't any hold-ups with the release of the DVD - I worked on the film and have been gagging to see it again (and smugly to show it to friends and relations) since the cast and crew screening way back in the mists of time.

My girlfriend bought me a copy of "The Alchemy of Mirrormask" for my birthday back at the end of October, which was one of the nicest surprises to see how much of my work was in there and that of Vanessa Kellas.

A joy to work on, an inspired film, and a bloody excellent cast & crew!

Take care & Happy Holidays,

-Mark.

Does anyone know where I can find a copy of the letter evil Helena (anti-Helena) wrote to her mother, when she stole the Mirrormask? Is it located in the script? While I watched the film (3 times) it always seemed like the complete letter was never read. Now I'm curious. Many Thanks!

a bit of it is in the scriptbook, but I'd suggest checking out the children's book. It has a decent sized letter (i.e. the best thing you'll find til you can pause the DVD when it comes out) and you get to find out what Helena was doing while Valentine was out getting the letter

G'day folks, this is my first post here.

As far as I know Mirrormask isn't out in Australia (and if it is, it's not our anywhere near me) but I was lucky enough to get the script book for X-Mas. I read it all in about three days (had to work - darn it) and I absolutaly loved it.

THe film is avalable to buy from Amazon on Fed 7th so I'm gonna order it from there. I wish I oculd have seen it on the big screen, but there you go.

THere are so many concepts in the script I loved, the Ordbiting Giants for one, the socks opeining the film, the floating books. I just loved it, can't wait to see it!

Sorry i don't really have anyhting to add, but I'll let you folks know what I though of the film when I get the DVD.

So till then,

Cheers.

Thank you, for letting me know about the children's book. I'll definitely ask my boss to order it for our own collection.

It never came here, so waiting for the DVD...

But you know how you get a picture in your mind of a writer's atmosphere or ambience--the breath & smell of their novels' "world"?

The trailer immediately made me think of the images in my mind when I read China Mieville, another writer I am hot for (Perdido Street Station, The Scar, Iron Council).

Sorry it's taken a while to write back. I was the stills photographer, hence being jolly pleased with how much of my work was in "The Alchemy of Mirrormask".

It really was an absolute joy to work on. Neil and I had to do a pincer formation on Dave to get him to sit for a few photos though! ;-)

Take care all,

-Mark.

Hope this is the right place for this, sorry if it is not.

Just thought I'd let you folks know that the Aussie (Region 4) edition of Mirrormask comes with a really cool slip case which, as far as I know, wasn't avalable with the US edition. I have both editions, so I'm cheering!

Basically the front of the slip case has the same image as the cover of the Illustrated Film Script book and the back is the same as the regular DVD case.

WOOT! Just had Mirrormask show up on my list of movies on demand and watched it over the weekend. Found out my 9 year old had already had the pleasure of watching it and loved it as well. I agree with the concept of TNES and Labrynth references, lol, made me think of Tool and Marylin Manson videos as well. I must must must get the book now.

I was unhappy that there was not a singel theatré in my area that was willing to show the movie, but thankfully is out on DVD Smile I placed an order for it as soon ans I saw in on Amazon.ca and got it very quickly, faster than I though it would take. So after seeing it i have to say that Mirrormask is great I'm going to have to get my friend to watch this movie.

Yep. Frenchfryhead was almost but not quite annoying. I had a crush on the Dark Queen, because I'm a sucker for a sexy voice.

Am I the only one who heard Helena's riddle and thought "That old chestnut?" I read that when I was a kid, in a tattered Reader's Digest even older than I was.

Valentine's tower was based on Baba Yaga's bird-footed house.

Well, I finally got a chance to see it. The movie was . . . singular. I've really not seen its like. Well, I have, sort of, but not done quite that same way. I loved all the twists on the child's quest to save the world, like UnLunDun, but, well, even trippier.

I think my favourite part would have to be the Bobs and Malcolm.

This is one of those movies that my mother doesn't get and like, even though we have a similar relationship to that of Helena's and her mother in the movie.

I love this movie mainly because of Stephanie Leonidas and the "Close to You" song sequence. This girl needs to be in more movies.

I really REALLY loved Mirrormask. Reminded me very strongly of Labyrinth, does anyone remember that movie with David Bowie & a very young Jennifer Connelly?

Labyrinth & those stupid(said with all due respect, of course!)old Sinbad Of The Seven Seas movies. Good fun, yeah! I need to get those on dvds too. I just got my copy of Mirrormask signed last night! Hell's yeah, Mr. Gaiman, you rock!
