New camera for EMZT YouTube!

BoomDoom and i bought a new Kodak Pix Pro camera to start helping do videos for the EMZT RADIO YouTube Horror Channel..

i’ve playing around with it, trying to figure out how to use it and all its functions and for the first video, learned how to do basic editing and putting in some music, did a basic intro and credits page and then mixed it all together..

our first video shoot was several smaller videos that i figured out how to put together to make an almost 7min video..

i’m pretty proud of my first time in the video editing, it’s not the greatest but it’s not bad either..  BoomDoom is nervous in front of the camera, but if i help direct him and ask him questions like we do for his podcast, then he seems to get comfortable after a while..  when he talks about a topic he’s interested in, he can make it sound so cool..

i’m using windows live movie maker, which is pretty easy to figure out, but i’m already wanting more stuff on there to make the editing more horror related..

please do check out our video and give a like, comment and share about our video..

Thank You!  there will be more to come!

 

The Original Terror of the Waters; JAWS 1975 – 1987

Last week I had the urge to watch the JAWS movie series, since it was available on NetFlix..

The whole series is about this rogue killer shark, each a different shark because the shark in each movie was destroyed, I mean not just stabbed or anything, but blown to bits, except part 2, that one was electrocuted to the point it was on fire..

The movies also centered on the Brody family, which is not so strange since they seem to be the ones to kill the shark in every movie.  But how do those sharks know who those people are and why would it seek such revenge on that family..??

Police Chief Martin Brody (Roy Scheider) was in the first 2 movies and came up with some great lines before the shark was destroyed..  like; “Smile, you son of a bitch!” and “Open Wide!  SAY AHHHHH!”

Movies 3 & 4 were about their sons, 3 was “located” in Florida at Sea World of all places and 4 was in the Caribbean.

JAWS 3 was 3-D (1983).  The early 80s is when 3-D vision was being used in horror film, to add more of a scare effect in the movie theaters, you see something practically jumping out from the screen and at your face, the scare factor is high.  Friday the 13th Part 3 was 3-D the year before.

The series ends with Jaws:The Revenge (Part 4).  The Shark kills the youngest Brody son, Sean, who was a police deputy for Amity Island.  It jumped up at his police boat, ripping off his arm and then a second chomp, pulls him under the water.  Ellen Brody, the mom and former Chief Brody’s widow, said that Chief Brody died of a heart attack, Ellen says it was the fear of the shark and water that killed him.

Mike Brody, oldest son is living in the Caribbean and brings his mom to stay with them to help her over the grief of losing her son.  There’s an ominous feeling she has, thinking, dreaming and knowing that the Shark is following her.  Of course, she’s right, the Shark does come after the remaining family, even the little 5 year old granddaughter.  But the Brodys team up and destroy that Shark again, proving that love of family and having the will to not give in to the fear of impending super natural doom, will win the day..

I noticed that these movies had to have a happy ending.  The Shark had to be destroyed because Man has to be the dominant species on the planet, if super nature wins out, then people will be too afraid to live their lives.

These movies were during a time that practical effects were used.  No CGIs or computer video effects trickery.  They used some actual shark film footage and of course, had the largest animatronic shark built to scare the hell out of us.

When the first Jaws movie came out in my hometown in 1975, nobody went into the water or were even at the beaches during the whole month of June.  It scared everyone that badly.   And that makes me smile thinking about that  a movie about a killer shark, would keep people from going swimming.

My hometown also was the place where they filmed Piranha 3D in 2010 about those killer prehistoric piranhas that ate Jerry O’ Connell’s penis and some springbreakers too.

Storms seem to be hitting the South..

At the moment, storms are hitting on the South, making internet connection difficult.

MJ had to cancel our podcast recording today to do storm preparations for his area..

Tropical Storm Hermine is hitting Florida where my online school is located.  They closed up early today to ride it out and are hoping for normal resume of business on Friday.

And so i’m working on my schoolwork for this week, and it’s now a waiting game to see how much time the storms will take from us.

i’m considering putting together a little podcast for the podbean page for you..  if i have some free time..

Follow the group down a rabbit hole of twisted terror as they learn about worlds beyond imagination. Reality and fantasy collide, culminating in twists, turns, and visuals that can’t be missed.

Sorry for my absence..

I’m sorry that i haven’t been podcasting the last couple of weeks..

as the daytime caregiver for my mother with frontal temporal dementia, you have to take it one day at a time with anything..  and sometimes my podcasting gets put on hold..

my baby sister who lives in Florida came out for a week long visit, i had to drop everything and work at cleaning up my Mom’s room for Liz to stay in, it was an all day project just picking up stuff that Mom had hidden around and under the bed and vacuuming under and around the bed, which hadn’t been done in months..  Mom is a hoarder and likes to have her room crowded with items that normally get thrown in the trash or put away in a closet somewhere and she used to hide food in her bed..  Dad just couldn’t do this on his own, so i had to help..  Amazingly enough Mom didn’t get mad when we were cleaning up her room a bit, she just watched..  so that took up all my time that i couldn’t make it to podcast.   Then the next Thursday was the last day Liz was here so we were all chatting about what to do for the last day before she flew back to Florida..  it was an all afternoon event of Liz driving around town stopping at various stores and we had brought home pizza for the family and then later went for some frozen yogurt…  Of course, Mom would glare at me and my other sister for intruding, so we would go to our house..

Life sometimes just gets in the way of podcasting and i can’t make promises of doing better, i’m pretty much a slave to my Mom’s dementia and that’s how it is until she’s done…  but i will still try..

INDIE SPOTLIGHT MONDAY: Voices in The Darkness

VOICES IN THE DARKNESS, independent horror short film project from Cynthia Pictures and Storm Moon Productions, written by Adam J. Morgan & Pippa Alice Stephens.  They are getting ready to do their crowdfunding page to raise monies to make this film. Another intriguing film project from the UK that needs our help in making it a reality.

“When the voices inside are as loud as those outside.”  

‘Voices in the Darkness’ is the story of life in a British mental institution in the 1940s. The cast is small but developed, and the locations are powerful yet limited. With no major stunts or need for large special effects, ‘Voices in the Darkness’ will be made with a relatively limited budget.
It tells the tale of Nurse Jean Wood who, in her late 20s, is working as a Nurse in Winter Hill Asylum, in Gloucester, England. Nurse Wood is being investigated by the Board of Control for some suspicious deaths that she had been present during that time.  Is she responsible or is she involved?
‘Voices’ will be the fourth film produced by Cynthia Pictures; following in the steps of ‘Rosemary’ and ‘The Life of Cynthia’ and the soon to be completed ‘Martha’.

Screenplay Written by Adam J Morgan & Pippa Alice Stephens.

FEED THE BLACK: Review

FEED THE BLACK , a short silent film by Klayton Dean, is an amazing almost psychedelic voyage into the other side when a young woman kills herself because of her overwhelming grief of her mother passing away..

The eerie, creepy music does drive the viewer to stay in their seat to give their full 100% attention to watch the film.  It’s hard to look away with the music keeping you locked into watch this film.

The film starts off in bright colors before the girl dies and then after she wakes up after dying, the colors are more muted and very dreamlike quality, with  overlapping occult and religious images that freak you out a bit as they flash in your face, to keep you off balance and unsure of what will happen next and you can almost feel the confusion of the girl as she travels deeper into this mysterious realm..

The scenery and locations around the remote areas of UK are beautiful and give the film even more ominous feeling to this unknown journey in death.

it is 32 mins of sadness, wonder, confusion, fear and mystery..

i recommend that you all watch this amazing work, it’s worth the time and you can see the incredible talent of a director who takes film making to a very different level!
