Escape Design FX owner and Jim Henson's Creature Shop Challenge poster signer, Russ Adams, stepped into the TanVan to help explain this whole #VanSessions thing. As part of the Ogden City Arts sub-committee that helped with conceptualization of podcasting musicians from a late '80s Dodge Camper Van, Russ had to experience the Van in person. We chatted about his love of special effects, his thorough Historic 25th Street tour guide skills, and his grouchy grandpa inspired new project.
