MENTALHEADTRAUMAFILMS is my assault on the sensory perception of the viewer!

Many moons ago I had my first experiences of the Underground filmmaking of Ronny Carlsson of Film Bizarro. Upon watching his Experimental Films from the Lens of a Shitty Camcorder was the conduit to get the ball rolling for my own creativity behind...and obviously...in front of the camera.

So you could blame Ronny for MENTALHEADTRAUMAFILMS and talent that inspired me to go fuck it and "let's do something!"

MENTALHEADTRAUMAFILMS is gorilla filmmaking making the most of what I have at a present time. Digital camera to whatever happens my way on this course of this journey I have undertaken within the realms of the underground.

MOTHER'S DAY: REDUX (2014)

https://youtu.be/DJAB7_RHA7o (https://youtu.be/DJAB7_RHA7o)

'Von Claude Brothers' and their opus TOUGH (2011)https://www.extremehorrorcinema.com/index.php?topic=2515.0 (https://www.extremehorrorcinema.com/index.php?topic=2515.0) is to blame for this, my first foray into short film making! Bluming obvious influence in your face! It's funny but this feels so much like yesterday looking back in my mind. Had a lot of fun as I always do, even when I suffer for my art! Feel any filmmaker would understand THAT...

FUCK THE SHOT GLASS, SKULL THE BOTTLE (2015)

(http://i.imgur.com/jqOjU8w.jpg)

Experience my third short here https://www.extremehorrorcinema.com/index.php?topic=3657.0 (https://www.extremehorrorcinema.com/index.php?topic=3657.0)

wooden did a wonderful job doing a limited release for me! We gave these to people as thank you's and whatnot. This arose from my support for a production at the time and turned out to be very prophetic...which just occurred to me. Was fun, nuts and probably not something I would chug down again any time soon...started a short movement, people drinking Worcestershire Sauce...

OFF{AL} (2016)

(http://i1093.photobucket.com/albums/i429/SplatMk2/DSCN0253.jpg) (http://s1093.photobucket.com/user/SplatMk2/media/DSCN0253.jpg.html)

Experience my forth short {the B & W version} on page 2 here https://www.extremehorrorcinema.com/index.php?topic=4407.0 (https://www.extremehorrorcinema.com/index.php?topic=4407.0)

Featured in Yan Kaos' Gore Anthology 4 after he asked me to create a short for this. Took my bloody time then it all fell together. Then I did a B&W version which you can see here in the above link. Daniel A Murphy asked if he could use it in a short film anthology of his own and I am like why the fuck not! Will be a third version coming this year (2019) with new scenes and what have you. THAT will be solely for here and a VERY limited DVDr release.

Was really cool to get feed back from these from an awesome group of people!

Time goes in funny directions when you are a filmmaker! There WILL be more shorts proper in the near future including the already mentioned new version of OFF{AL}! Following is a collection of experiences I created either in the support of E.H.C. along with others in the name of experimentation...below are some OFF{al} related stuff I did...

These were shot for our EHC Face Book cover in mind. We ended up using the shortest as alas it has to be a certain size to be able to use. Was cool to do, to support some very talented filmmakers and show case the underground with their visions...

A NOTE

New thread for a new beginning!

REALLY needed to do this and glad I did...

Had my doubts on this path...which is normal when you are on a quest and like me someone who thinks a bit too much and makes far too much out of Stuff. It's just the disturbing aspect of me, my little slice of torment the fuck outa myself and question EVERYTHING  :cantlook:

But alas my eyes were opened and re-doing this thread was reminded on the why's and wherefores...


(https://i.imgur.com/r46wWqV.jpg)

Fuck this was fun...and IS FUN...those hours of contemplation...creating...shooting...editing...layering to get the right vibe!

Did I succeed...looking back felt fuck yeah I did!

Really would like 2019 to mark something special with this new beginning and hope to bring some interesting imagery forth for the guys who supported me from the get-go like wooden and dobermann65 along with everyone else who took the time to check out what I do...thank YOU for the inspiration!

On a last note please feel free to share feed back, any connections you felt with something you experienced etc.

Keep on creating if the ideas come; fuck 'em if they don't.

 :yay: :yay: HAHA awesome!!! Thanks for the motivation for The Start ;)  :yay: :yay:

FUCK I did four pages of videos!

Want to get a unique version of OFF {al} for here done this year aka 2019. Will have more splat{ter-ness} in it with a new beginning and end.

Don't REALLY do story boarding per say but this time around I MADE MY SELF DO IT!!!
Didn't want to lose the ideas I had...or, at the least, let them slip from my mind until later on...when perhaps it is too late to re-emerge from my brain. Has happened a few times  :grimace:

Along with this want to keep doing these little tidbits, the experimental stuff.

As for a new unique shortfall experience there are notes on stuff I have on the go. More in my head too...somewhere  :evil:

With each adventure growth will sprout forth and my experience I share will grow in skill as a filmmaker, effects guy but in ways most importantly...as an actor.
