While the resort is ready for halloween, we at MARF have decided to hold off showing it to you all until a bit later (making it a bit more 'timely'). So, to compensate, let's take a look at 'earlier' shots of the Studios....
It was international hat day, can't you tell?
Now here's the major highlight, K9 Animation's Production Center has finally opened after much delay:
This 3-story (the 'ground floor' is actually 12 feet below the 'park surface') attraction - The K9 Animation Center - is actually a collection of several mini-attractions as well as an 'anchor' - the Tour - surrounding a vast lobby. Attraction list goes as follows:The K9 Animation Experience
- a walk-through tour of one of the 'wings' of the K9 Animation Facility. Actual authentic tour, nothing touristy. See the process of how your Favorite K9 film came to reality. Start from storyboard, to background artists, to the animation computers, to the sounds, and then end it off with a sneak peek at the next K9 animation film. Length of tour: 45-60 minutes. For safety, security, privacy, and mostly copyright reasons, video and photography is strictly forbidden.Artist's Den
- Learn how to draw your favorite character here! Runtime: 30 minutesTale of the Wolf
- Film about the history of K9 animation and MARF as a whole. Runtime: 30 minutesCharacter Charter
- A series of kiosks. Ever wanted to be a part of a K9 film? Ever wanted to make your own K9 film? Now's your chance! Just enter a few details onto the touchscreen kiosk (e.g. character/description, setting/film, day/time, etc) and you will get a generated short film that you can email home. The possibilities are endless (in fact, there are 5,092 variations based on your choosing) Runtime: generally, please don't spend more than 15 minutes here... there are other guests waiting behind you.
What's a nice perk about combined studio-parks? Both Production facilities are well-integrated into the park. As such, if you're an employee for either K9 Animation of Falliday films, you enjoy free, direct access to the park via subtle access gates:
Just simply slide your ID card at the gate and it will unlock.

Moving on, work on Section Nordguard is moving along at a snail's pace (blame multiple crashes >.>):
Falliday has gotten a new eatery - Pasta House. Finally, one can enjoy pasta in the park:
and I'll just end this with two more shots:
I don't know about you, but it feels great
to be back working on this!
