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 1 & 2", "Sabotage 757", "Super Soda", "The Annoying Magician!", "Church of Explosions & Mayhem", "Zombie Demon Nazis From Uranus!", "Eutopia", "Star Frigate One", "Video Heist", "Averting Apocalypse", and "Duel 2030".

Family: "Snow Siege", "Matthew's Portal", "Sleepwalker", "Full Circle", "Fortress Siege 1 & 2", "1999", "Globe", "Fairbanks Field Trip", "House Trek: The Next Generation".

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 late 2018 one way or another, and many of them much sooner than that.

I also am working on a string of new projects in addition to the old ones.  They are listed here by progress:

Production is complete, partway through post production:
"1999", "Globe", "Video Heist", "Doppelganger", "Averting Apocalypse", "Tinyville Disaster 2", "Real Americans", "Fortress Siege 2"

Production partially complete:
"Fairbanks Field Trip", "House Trek: The Next Generation Seasons 1 & 2"


Production not yet underway, but a script and plans exist:
"The Annoying Magician!"

The video projects, as they're revised and cleaned up, are starting to be posted on

HornbostelVideos.com.


HERE IS A .GIF TEASER PREVIEW OF SOME OF THE VIDEOS I'VE MADE:

Preview of my video projects

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.





Watch for all of the eight short videos in this series to wind up online RIGHT HERE over the next few weeks, and on DVD in my shop for anybody who actually wants that. (Five of them are already online, plus some other videos I've made! Seriously, look at HORNBOSTELVIDEOS.COM now to see all my online video stuff!)

 Note that in addition to my ordinary narrative video productions which I'm working towards releasing safely & legally, I also have launched a vlog (video blog) channel on HornbostelVideos.com and on YouTube.  Once every 2-4 weeks I'll be adding a new video entry to the list, in which I discuss what I'm currently working on and show some bits of preview material.

   Here are my vlog entries on YouTube.

INFO FOR ACTORS

I'm testing some [limited] ad slots again for the next ten days, from Project Wonderful. Given the increasing quality and quantity of web traffic lately here, might actually be worth doing now. Below this message is a promotion from another website owner, unrelated to my own web network. I'm not responsible for anything on their sites, nor do I personally filter the ads that rotate through the slot, so good, bad, amazing, dumb, hilarious, crazy, questionable or otherwise, so don't credit/blame me for whatever link appears down there. I don't control other peoples' websites. Okay?
