Phantom Harbor Swag

Hey Kids! So the design for the first Phantom Harbor T-Shirt should be done early this week which means that they should be available by the end of the first week of December.

Just so you all know, I don't intend on ever posting behind-the-scenes photos here on the site. I've decided to just post those on my Facebook account. So, if you are really interested in how things are progressing (or how they have progressed), sign onto Facebook and add me as a friend.

Postcards have been distributed in some outlets across the Los Angeles area. Look for them at HALLOWEEN TOWN and DARK DELICACIES in Burbank, SWORK, THE CACTUS GALLERY, and MELT TOO in the Eagle Rock Area. Sad thing is - I've nearly run out of my first run!

Will be ordering more this week and hope to get them to Comic Book and Horror destinations across the U.S.

More to come!


Welcome to the Phantom Harbor Blog

Hey Kids!

This is Shannon Shea, the creator of Phantom Harbor, and I'd like to welcome you to this forum where you can share thoughts, ask questions, and get information on the upcoming episodes.

As many of you already know, I'm primarily a one-man operation, although I've been fortunate enough to enlist the aid of my wife and some of my friends who's talents are far superior to mine. This does make it difficult to produce episodes with the kind of frequency both you and I would like.

So where am I with Episode 2?

The animation story is written. It is about Cowboys, Indians, and a Werewolf as indicated in the first show. The live action script is being written now and then it is on to storyboarding. I've learned that storyboarding is a MUST when you are producing a show with no money. I have to make sure that everything is composed just right so that I am only building for the boards. I have no room for slop. What you see is what you get.

I'm designing a new creature for the live action and I think it is gonna be killer! The goblin was fun and creepy - I'm hoping this one will be scary and unnerving. But don't be too quick to write off the goblin. He's a fixture on the ship and I'm sure we'll be seeing more of him. Also, be prepared to see a bit more of thie ship this time out. That is going to take a little magic, since I shoot this show in my one-car garage but know that I'm working on it.

Every episode is basically two shows in one: the animated story and the live action "wrap around" so you can imagine the amount of work it takes to get it done.

So now it is back to work. I'll try to add posts frequently so you can keep up with the show's production and you won't keep hitting the site and being disappointed.

Oh, wait, some other things about the web site:

1.) The Captain's Quarters will have a new button soon that will link to a section of short video messages from him. Just so you can see what he's up to and thinking about from time to time.

2.) Nearly ready to open the store!!!! Okay, I'm working out opening a "store" on Designing T-Shirts, etc. until I can begin manufacturing my own products. This should happen soon so you can hopefully do a little holiday shopping.

3.)This new blog. I'm not sure how to add posts, but please do if you are so inclined. I'd love to hear from you. If you want to talk to the Captain, e-mail him at , if you want to link to the site, advertise, or have technical issues, e-mail me at

See you around the harbor!
