Bruce Lee with the Inspirational Artist Quote of the Week

Bruce Lee with the Inspirational Artist Quote of the Week

May 29, 2014

“Ultimately martial art means honestly expressing yourself.” “Man listen. You see—really—to me, ok, to me, ultimately martial art means honestly expressing yourself. Now it is very difficult to do. It is easy for me to put on a show and be cocky and be flooded with a cocky feeling and then feel like pretty cool and all that. Or I can make all kinds of phony things—you see what I mean—blinded by it, or I can show you some really fancy movement, but to express oneself honestly, not lying to oneself and to express myself honestly, now that, my friend, is very hard to do; and you have to train, you have to keep your reflexes so that when you want it, it’s there. When you want to move, you’re moving, and when you move you are determined to move—not taking one inch—not anything less than that.” ~~Bruce...

Harlan Ellison with MVP’s Inspirational Storyteller Quote of the Week

Harlan Ellison with MVP’s Inspirational Storyteller Quote of the Week

Sep 26, 2013

“It is the game of “what if?”. You take that which is known, and you extrapolate – and you keep it within the bounds of logic, otherwise it becomes fantasy – and you say, “Well, what if?”. That’s what speculative fiction is, and at its very best, it is classic literature, on a level with Moby Dick and Colette and Edgar Allan Poe.” –Harlan Ellison From The Guardian Q&A:...

Alive in Joburg short from Elysium & District 9 filmmaker Neil Blomkamp hovers over Sci-fi Movie Saturday.

Aug 24, 2013

As discussed on the most recent episode of MVP Mutant Radio – here is the original short from diretor Neil Blomkamp that served as the basis for his full length feature District 9. You can see the quality of his effects work and cinematography displayed in this work. He would carry these same qualities into his feature work on District 9 and now Elysium. Watch Elysium in the theaters today. Listen to the MVP Mutant Radio review of Elysium online or subscribe to iTunes or...

Indie Filmmakers – Send Your Media Releases to Mutantville.com!

Since the launch of Mutantville.com ten years ago – we have used this platform to promote not only MVP and our works – but the works of independent artists that we discover along the way. Over the past year, we’ve expanded from the blog to Twitter to Youtube and finally iTunes with our semi-weekly radio show – MVP Mutant Radio. The driving goal behind everything that MVP does is to create works of genre fiction – and quite honestly to do a better job at it than anyone else. In a lot of ways this precludes our being able to constantly promote other independent artists outside of MVP as we are very much neck deep in the creative process. At this moment I have no less than three scripts that I’m bouncing between not to mention the countless articles that need writing here at the website and lest I forget the umpteen number of projects that are moving through the later stages of production here at Mutantville Productions. I repeat – MVP exists to tell great stories. No more, no less. Along the way we’ve managed to interview and help promote the works of other filmmakers and for two years running, we’ve helped give nearly eighty odd filmmakers a platform to show their work at the Mad Monster Party Film Festival – absolutely free of charge. So to put it succinctly – we’ve done the best we can to help others BUT – and this is a BIG BUT – it is the onus of the filmmaker to pick up their own slack and promote their work. Don’t expect other filmmakers to do your work for you. However – at MVP we DO want to help. Over the years, we’ve seen so many great indie works that it becomes nearly impossible not to talk about them from time to time. However, we’ve reached a point where individuals feel the need to conspire in the shadows and claim that we’re not offering fair and balanced coverage to everyone out there. Well that may in fact be true – because we are artists – NOT JOURNALISTS. Don’t get it confused. We are here to create art...
