Slasher Based Web Series C for Chaos Returns for Season Two

Slasher Based Web Series C for Chaos Returns for Season Two

Sep 14, 2014

The Halloween season is fast approaching so it’s time to open the Mothership Vault doors and unleash another season of the slasher web series that the powers that be didn’t want you to see – C for Chaos. Season One was met with a confused reaction by the horror viewing public that found itself uncertain what to think when faced with an original idea that wasn’t a cheap fanfilm of Friday the 13th or Night of the Living Dead. In an age of the Remaking Remix when the Millennial Generation thinks the only good ideas are the ones that have already been told – C for Chaos is unleashed to melt your minds. C for Chaos is a project ten years in the making. What was started as a simple indie slasher film evolved into an ongoing web series because when we started out we had no idea what the heck we were doing. Armed with six hours of slasher goodness, we’ve embarked on the process of converting it into bite sized pieces for you and your friends to watch on Youtube. Season Two: Episode 7: The Dreamer Awakens Episode 8: Killroy’s Comic Book Conspiracy Episode 9: Art vs the Long Arm of the Law Episode 10: Trapped in the Lair of the Numbers...

Muticia the Movie Goddess brings Horror Hosts back to Charlotte and the Mad Monster Party!

Muticia the Movie Goddess brings Horror Hosts back to Charlotte and the Mad Monster Party!

Feb 26, 2014

North Carolina has a long tradition of horror hosts stretching back to the days of legendary Philip Morris as Dr.Evil all the way up to recent years with the friendly fiend Ormon Grimsby out of Raleigh. Now, Mutantville Productions is proud to bring you the return of Muticia the Movie Goddess with the startling second episode of Muticia’s Movie Morgue. Dr.Evil Ormon Grimsby Back in April of 2012, Mutantville embarked on the journey to create a new horror host – or hostess if you prefer – for the new Millennium – Muticia the Movie Goddess. Muticia made an immediate impression on fans with her debut at the Mad Monster Party 2012 with her red dress and signature space age moves. Gone were the Gothic black dresses, skulls and chains of horror hostesses past – instead replaced by zany orange mutants, an ageless Movie Goddess and skulls – from outer space. The first episode of Muticia’s Movie Morgue featuring George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead premiered on Youtube for Halloween 2012 to great success. After a longer wait than necessary, the Movie Goddess returns with her cast including Mutie the Mutantville Mutant, Mutantville Martina, Todd the Crazy FX Guy, and the new PA – Juan the PA. This time out they’re tackling the mysteries of Roger Corman’s The Terror as Mutie tries to solve the riddle of the seventh director, Martina gets to host her own talk show, and Muticia just wants to finish making her new titles for the show but producer Mr.Majic keeps making cutbacks. Look for Muticia the Movie Goddess and friends at the upcoming Mad Monster Party as she puts in a special live appearance on Saturday March 22 as she hosts the live premiere of Muticia’s Movie Morgue Episode Two featuring Roger Corman’s The Terror. For more information on the Mad Monster Party and its incredible lineup of guests including Hulk Hogan, William Shatner, Henry Winkler and more – visit the official website here.

C For Chaos Episode Four Release and The New Schedule

C For Chaos Episode Four Release and The New Schedule

Jan 20, 2014

Some of you may have thought Episode 4 was just a little late. Actually, you’d be wrong. I’ve managed to get 3 episodes ahead in my editing so hopefully you’ll experience no lag in the release schedule as we barrel into preparation for Mad Monster Party 2014 including production of another fine episode of Muticia’s Movie Morgue. We’ve decided to shift our release day for new episodes to Mondays. The new episode will drop every two weeks as already established. Now that release will always land on a Monday. On the alternate weeks, the directors commentary for the previous episode will be release, also on Monday...

C For Chaos Episodes 1, 2 & 3 Now Online

C For Chaos Episodes 1, 2 & 3 Now Online

Jan 5, 2014

Episodes 1, 2 & 3  of C For Chaos are now online! Woot! We’ve got this thing rolling. Thus far I’ve managed to stick to the every two weeks schedule. Episode #2 was a real bare with over a dozen VFX screen replacement shots to setup, but once that one was behind me, I fell into a groove and considering that the next 3 episodes more or less take place in the same location, it’s been mostly a matter of scoring and fine tweaks. I’ve recently realized that the neato mosquito ending animation which teases what comes in the next episode sort of painted me into a little corner. Each of those takes around 30 minutes to build and around 35 minutes to render. Episode #3 is nearly double the length of #2 clocking in around 12:43. I’m thinking 10 minutes or so is going to wind up being the normal length, although Episode #4 is almost 12 minutes long as well.. Another options for viewing I’ve consider is creating 30 minute chunks of the series so you only have to see the opening animation once and setting that up as a separate play list once we get further along. Taking the long view, this is a marathon and not a sprint. This work will dominate my editing cycles for the next 2 years at least. Given that I know I have a few big chunks of work coming down the shoot apart from C4Chaos, I’m endeavoring to get a few episodes ahead so that I can focus on that other work. The first open “Letter from Andersonville,” where I just share a low production, behind the scenes glimpse has just aired for the first time as a segment on MVP Mutant Radio. Todd and I had a nice time with Vanelle a.k.a Muticia The Movie Goddess shooting some C For Chaos related video bumpers this weekend. Forget the fact that it was CCccccold! She pulled through and we got the footage we needed. You’ll begin seeing those on the ends of the episodes starting at...

C for Chaos: The Web Series Launches

C for Chaos: The Web Series Launches

Dec 12, 2013

C For Chaos, what a long, strange trip it’s been. The film that had it’s genesis when myself, Jamie and Geo were riding up to Virginia to pick a Neo Geo video game I had purchased on eBay. We used the 6 plus hours in crammed into the cab of my Ford F-150 to conceptualize our first feature length film. Ironically, the ideas laid down would become, “C For Chaos,” technically our first web series. To say that what we actually turned out bears little resemblance to the concept would be generous, but isn’t it always kind of fun when you take off to somewhere unknown? That’s for C4C was for us budding film makers, the great unknown. At the time all those nights locked into the comic shop in Asheboro, NC (the basis for our mythical Andersonville, NC in the film) filming until we could barely stand up, dealing with the cold shooting battle sequences with the Numbers Killer or sitting through 9 hours of makeup only to start an all night shoot tended to annoy me. Now I look back on them as some of the most real film making experiences I’ve ever had. It was the film where the shooting seemed to go on forever. If there was a rookie mistake to be made, we made it, so reshooting and even recasting was the norm rather than the exception. I say this with no shame because in the end, we persevered. In so many ways, this film made us as a production group. If “The Zombie Hunter” was the genesis of Mutantville Productions, surely C For Chaos was the coming of age. It was the crucible that forged us as film makers. As a feature film it broke us, first myself and then Jamie as editors around 2008, then rebuilt us as we imagined ways to make the footage we had in the can work most efficiently. To tell the grand story that Jamie had wrote based on our ideas from the long truck ride it took more than 190 1 hour 8mm tapes. Clearly, too much footage to cram into a feature length film. I’m pleased to announce that at...
