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...

New Year & New JuJu on Johnny Brento’s JuJu

New Year & New JuJu on Johnny Brento’s JuJu

Jan 2, 2013

Johnny Brento breaks reflective on this year end Vlog-o-Doom! Check it out as well as the first episode of Brento’s Budget Film Making podcast after the leap. 2012 was killer diller! Find out what’s up for 2013 Mutants!!! There are so many fun times had with the Mutantville Players and my other film making friends that’s hard to single out any single “most fun” project. I’d have to say that the Mad Monster Party was a lot of fun! Getting to screen Indigo Child finally in public was gratifying. The special G.H.O.S.T. screening at Con Carolina’s was fun, even though only the hardest core of the hardest core MVP’r’s showed up. KBS & Jack I’m talking to you guys! Muticia’s Movie Morgue was shot and release in the came calendar year (I think that’s a first for us.) Maybe events were attended and many movies were watch. The negative side of working so closely for so long with my fellow  Mutants reared it’s ugly head far less often than in the past. As far as I know only one actor associated un-friended me on FaceBook and he was dead weight anyways, so a blessing in disguise perhaps. Always a good thing. New challenges were taken and over taken and we all managed to live through another year of an artists life. So my mutants, without further ado, here’s the new...
