The production blog, here, just shared the original teaser film that tells the whole short story in Gaiman's voice. (direct link to watch the video is here...watch it soon, it's only up for a limited time!!)
Anyway, in another blog post, the director of the film, Christopher Salmon, talks about how he realized as he was shooting video footage of Gaiman and his house and life that another film was developing: a documentary about the magic with which Gaiman surrounds himself. And so the idea was born for Castle Gaiman...a documentary that, from the teaser video, should be incredibly beautiful with wonderful production value.
See the blog post here.
I believe Neil Gaiman's home is featured in an older book called The Faces of Fantasy. Since I have yet to get ahold of this book, I'm not sure if the inside of his charming home is featured, or just the single image of the outside on the front cover of the book. But in either case, this new documentary will feature the very essence of Domythicity.
I'm quite eager to see it!
In the mean time, some images from the above blog post and the accompanying video.
