mentalheadtraumafilms is an underground film production project run by yours truly, Splat. I had always wanted to be involved with films since a fairly young age but was always held back by barriers within my own mind; of believing that this is beyond me and just forget about it.

Biography


My dream was given birth back in 2012 after viewing Ronny Carlssonís Experimental Films From the Lense of a Shitty Camcorder. Ronny showed me film doesnít need to be expensive with high tech equipment to have something to offer!


Near the end of 2012 brought together ideas of short films I wanted to do, including storyboards and such. Along with this I purchased my first camera, a shitty camcorder but hey itís not about the equipment but what it depicts!


2013 was a year of throwing down ideas and kicking myself for accidentally throwing out my cameras wall charger. Along with this having the vision of what I wanted to be like within my films. So I worked my arse of to lose the weight. Going from 105kg down to the present moments 84kg and finally growing my hair.



(http://www.lunchmeatvhs.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/TOUGH_L13package.jpg)



In 2014 I brought out my first short, a rough and tumble affair I called Motherís Day. It was shot on a basic Nikon Coolpix 12.0 Megapixels. It was influenced by the Australian short film Tough (2010) by the Von Claude brothers!

Mission


mentalheadtraumafilms has two missions for itís existence! Ultra low budget film production company keeping to the Underground with experimental and gore films of the disturbing and hopefully, horrific!


Along with this mentalheadtraumafilms is also a vehicle to get the word out on Extreme Horror Cinema and the filmmakers we support. Of creating; promotional videos, video reviews and the like.

Now that I am reaching my vision of what I wanted to present in my films I have decided to do this here thread to have a work journal for people to follow my dream I have had since as a child of being a filmmaker. I wonít promise it will be exciting reading, pics or whatever all the time but I am sure from time to time insane calamity will erupt as after all it is me doing this!


Please feel free to reply in here with whatever you like.

The paper towel covered in blood looks really good. I like the idea of covering them in some liquid latex though also. For the short gore scene I'm working on right now for my YouTube channel I used the packing peanut intestine method.

Nice splat! I wish I could find a big ass tub of liquid latex like that! Have fun making intestines!

I have not been much support because I've been ill.   I am sorry. This is your best short to date. The cinematography is awesome and the toilet scene...holy Fuck, so good. I still hold a spot in my heart for that Halloween film...the shot down the hallway. Chilling!

When the time comes, you should open a storeenvy. Seriously. : )

I liked these last two videos, the last one from Hallowen is especially funny. I also like how you finish your shorts, you looking at the monitor and then that thoughtful look while on the monitor you appear again. : )

If you can ever include another character or something, you could include me, that is to say someone named Ren and do you stab him or you cut his throat until he (I?) tries with his hands to contain the gushing blood exploding from his neck and while he moans his last babble of despair at the inevitable. : )
Title: Re: mentalheadtraumafilms
Post by: Renacimiento on December 03, 2016, 06:52:43 PM
Would be great but alas there is no one at this point of time.. Been contemplating how I could go about adding other figures into my future sin~e~matik experiences.

Yes, it'd be great. By the way what I said before was a kind of joke, a failed one, not that I expected that you actually do that in your next short.

In your Hallowen short who controls the camera? there is someone else, who then ends up being your "victim".

Original idea will be a bit longer, could go to 30 minutes. As for feature length all depends on the idea, if it grows to the length of a feature so be it. Won't do filler to attain a time goal, fuck that shit!

So are there more scenes you're going to add that make it longer??

Making its debut on EHC. Then later I may just of a release of all my short films as mentioned previously in this thread. Think that's a brilliant idea!

yes indeed, that sounds like a primo idea :P

mentalheadtraumafilms (2018) came about because of an impromptu act.

Was walking past this custom t-shirt shop and decided to walk in and get a quote then went fuck it and had one made. Obviously can be seen in the vid.

Video is about this guy named Splat who gets a T-shirt made for his filmmaking vehicle...mentalheadtraumafilms...obviously he is unhinged and a bit over hyped... :thinking:

Though I love the shirt in the end would prefer to design and make my own...

An idea sprouted from out of my skull for a new MOTHER'S DAY.

Creativity will be in the form may take the form of a faux trailer.

Will be done in a neo Film Noir style.

FINAL CUT PRODUCTION JOURNAL



Yes mentalheadtraumafilms is active and alive. No videos of late, mainly because I have been sick for a while.

Felt like starting up a journal for this journey to the final vision that began with Yan wanting me to do a short for one of his Gore Anthologies a year or two ago. Wanted to keep those interested up to date with each production I work on. Loved doing those shorts but going to limit them a bit now and get serious again with 'major' productions.

Major Productions?

Productions that involve a complex of different aspects of a while. Effects work, costume design, props and anything else that helps creates and audio visual experience for the viewer!

Things will e taken a lot more serious. Though it worked for me not doing so BUT I will be doing a lot more pen to paper. Jotting down my ideas, screen writing along with other things such as scribbles of visual ideas I want to use.

Hence what I have done today. Wrote down what I want to achieve with this final vision of OFF...{al}. Essentially a capping of this tale. Along wit this drew an idea I want to go with semi-gore wise...funny, just got an idea just now typing this to add another bit which will bring my LUNG II persona into this  ;) because fuck, that little bit of cheap effects worked damn well and this short WILL involve a psychologist! Now THAT wasn't an influence from before mentioned film, an idea I played on to create more of an experience as my character will be in a straight jacket then I thought hmmm lets meat this up a bit Splat! : )

From time to time will add little bits to make this thread a bit more colourful, sick, disgusting and awesome!

TUESDAY 28th MAY 2018

Got a great idea of how I will portray my sick little baby killer in the psyche ward. Needed to do something to give both him and the psychologist distinct looks considering I play both roles.

On a side note the only people who will ever see this version will be those who have the DVD copy OR a future anthology of my work.

Been very quiet on the mentalheadraumafilms front.

Just life in general has been busy.

Been on holidays, went down to Melbourne {Aus.}

Been sick as well for quite a while. Kind of strange really as this kind of thing doesn't last long for me but this time had weeks off work etc.

Now I am working on completing my basement area in my house. Part storage space, work area along with a space to shoot elements of future short films...and maybe even a possible feature.

Got a new camera. Lot of study will going into application to get the most out of it.

Won't say when I will have anything new short wise as could be tomorrow...or months down the track.

Will state will be doing a last cut of OFF...{al}. Yan got the original cut for his anthology...Daniel got a version for his anthology...so fuck, I wanna do my own original, must fucked up...I hope...cut for my own release : )

Fuck, will be doing some Splat's Video Stews soon for EHC Reviews & Interviews...just feels like a god fit, and after all they are reviews of a sort...and most importantly...me being natural, just a fan talking movies!

Anyway that's my update... :yay:

Listenning to Eric James talk pre-filmmaking was inspiring. Of writing scripts / jotting down ideas.

IE. Obvious shit when you are not filmmaking  :nerdyembarassed:

You know FUCK THE SHOT GLASS...SKULL THE BOTTLE was unscripted, all from me noggin! BUT, in stating this, would and is sad when great ideas come...and pass, all out of not taking notes.

Apart from what has been jotting and story boarded already will be doing a lot more done the next few months...probably one I hope...before shooting starts again.

First port of call is to finish my personal and final cut of OFF...{al}. MY most complex shots to date with special gore effects and me running away in a straight jacket sans pants  :cantlook: :exciting:

Grabbed a art pad to do a schematic of work I will be doing over the next week or two and found this...

This one been on the works now for I think 3 years in a gestation period. Would need to rework some of it as ideas will have to be re-adjusted due to living in a different place now. Is my most complex pre-production as has a lot of effects ideas.

mentalheadtraumafilms studio is coming along! Just wish I had taken pics of what it originally looked like to give you guys an idea of how far it has come...it was just a pile of rubble, dirt and clay. None of the woodwork was there. Still need to even off the floor, add some flooring and put a bench top on that long work bench...then coat the woodwork. Love the look of the wood so will stain it or whatever.

Thanks! Just came back up from there, Dad did a great job with flattening out the floor more. Very close to completion! Hopefully I am feeling a bit better for tomorrow, want to pop the bench top on and make the beds so I can concrete a section where I want to put my shelves on.

Been writing out a draft for my current project which you guys will see in December. Hoping it will bring a visualisation of what EHC is all about...at the least an aspect anyways...

Short film wise want to lose a bit more excess weight first before I begin shooting the opening and closing scenes for my own version of OFF{al}!

Two different filmmakers have versions and quite frankly I need my own master version...then that's that, no more. If OFF{al} rises again it will be a sequel!

This version will have a hard copy as well.

Someone shared the poster for Angst (1983) on FB and it was amazing how the visions in my head steered trains of ideas in a certain direction!

Drinks night with my fellow workers after shift so really hardly any time to do anything serious tonight.

But the oddest thing inspired an idea though so no waste creativity wise. But also edited this little post title thingy whatever you call it...tired so brain isn't working on the right plane...
