MATTHEW'S VIDEO PRODUCTIONS (2001 to present day)
I've been making indie videos for a decade and a half. They're usually silly, with big action sequences, and explosive visual effects. I've signed agreements with some of the actors in those videos, but not all of them. If you were in one of my videos, and you'd like to see them online (and would like a share of their success if they take off) please contact me through the 'INFO FOR ACTORS' link at the bottom of the page. I think the cast members in these videos generallly have fallen into four categories: myself only, friends, family, and troop 4 boy scouts.
Me only: House Trek 1-6, the first "Send in the Clones", "Relativity", and some other short art videos.
Friends: This category includes videos like the 'Send in the Clones" series, "Tinyville Disaster", "Sabotage 757", "Super Soda", "Church of Explosions & Mayhem", "Zombie Demon Nazis From Uranus!", "Eutopia", "Star Frigate One", and "Duel 2030".
Family: "Snow Siege", "Matthew's Portal", "Sleepwalker", "Full Circle", "Fortress Siege", "1999", "Globe".
Boy Scout Troop 4: Troop 4 Uncensored 1-3, God & Country Flying Circus, Troop 4 TV Seasons 1-3.
ACTORS TAKE NOTE!
I'm determined to get all of this content online, and the first batch will be posted in just a few weeks. I am now prepared to take some minor legal risks in order to get these videos on the web, but I'd much rather have all, 100%, of the cast members' agreement beforehand that the videos can be posted on the internet. That said, while mostly this has not been problematic, a few of you are proving impossible to contact, much less get a signature from, which means I may be forced at some point, to modify and then upload the videos without 100% of your signed digital talent release forms. That's risky for me (I could be sued) and for you (you might be in an online video without knowing it) but your (won't name names but some of you have been unresponsive) persistent lack of willingness to respond to my requests for a signature pretty much brought us to this point. If you're unreachable, can't or won't sign, or whatever, I will try to excise you from the project in some way, depending on the situation maybe removing scenes, or if the scene is plot essential, possibly crediting you under a pseudonym (fake name) and blurring out your face a little. If there were some case like this where someone major whose role is critical to the video, and they won't or can't sign, the video might never make it online at all.
IF YOU HAVE EVER CONTRIBUTED TO MY PROJECTS, OR WANT TO, TAKE A LOOK AT THE INFO FOR ACTORS LINK.
All of my videos will be online by mid-2017 one way or another, and many of them much sooner than that.
I also am working on a string of new projects. They are listed here by progress:
Production is complete, partway through post production:
"1999", "Globe", "Eutopia", "Troop 4 TV: Season 2"
Production partially complete:
"Tinyville Disaster 2", "Real Americans", "Fairbanks Field Trip", "Video Heist", "Averting Apocalypse", "Troop 4 TV Season 3"
Production not yet underway, but a script and plans exist:
"The Annoying Magician!", "House Trek: The Next Generation", "Fortress Siege 2"
HERE IS A .GIF TEASER PREVIEW OF SOME OF THE VIDEOS I'VE MADE:
HERE IS A TRAILER FOR THE RERELEASE OF MY OLD AND VERY CHEESY "HOUSE TREK" SERIES OF VIDEOS, COMPLETE WITH NEW VFX AND SOUND DESIGN.
This video is not meant to infringe on any IPs and is not a fan film as such, it's its own stupid little thing, badly going where other more coherent sci-fi series had already been before.
All the audio in the videos I make has been legally licensed or recorded myself.
Same goes for other content, it's all 100% legal, or at least trying extremely hard to be, and I'm pretty sure I haven't actually infringed on anyone's IP.
