See Black Goat Before The Herd

Subscribers to Joseph Nanni’s Youtube channel Bad Advice For Good Times will see the new short film Black Goat weeks before it is released to the public.  The film is currently in the final stages of post production and will be screened at a handful of festivals this fall.  But anyone who hits “subscribe” between now and June 30 will not only be among the first to see the short but will also have access to exclusive character designs and a limited edition comic based the expanded story.  Good times.

Packaging The Madness

Short Film Festival season is here again and this time out we’ve descended all the way into madness by printing, cutting, assembling, and hand-finishing some 100 plus pieces, each requiring 60 steps to complete. We assume that the average festival in-box is filled with a multitude of hard mailers and bubble-lined manilla envelopes which are torn open an emptied at random and the contents ranked, filed and cued for review. Unhappy to just add to the heap we decided to do something different, after all, we sacrifice our heart, soul, and mind for our work so to just put it in a jewel case and drop it in the post seems like its own brand of insanity. So we constructed 50 pieces for submission and another 50 to offer to our fans which will help cover the production cost and festival fees. This is really about the packaging as both films are available all over the internet in high quality.  Regardless, the DVD features Elder Sign (2 min 14) and Casting Call of Cthulhu (9 min 12).
We were inspired by a voice from beyond the stars and outside reason . . . and the Farrow design for Spiritualized’ Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space, a brilliant album, brilliantly packaged.
The package was designed by Art Director Gints Bruveris and assembled by Joseph Nanni as follows:elder sign stack

First, each box flat is cut from a single 11×17 sheet, which has to be individually fed into the printer ’cause it is 100 lb paper.  Each piece has 26 cuts.

The box flat is then scored.  Each piece has 14 folds.

The scored box is then assembled with a single piece of two-sided tape.  Simples!

The inner sleeve is then cut from a piece of heavy tracing paper which looks and feels just like Band-Aid packaging. There are four cuts.

The inner sleeve is then folded.

The pill design label is placed on the DVD.

Each DVD has to have a tracking number.  This is hand written as each show has a different code.

The DVD is then sealed in the sleeve with three pieces of two sided tape for that “sterile” look and feel.dsc01545

The sealed sleeve is dropped in the box and presto . . .

. . . packaging magic!

Finally, the piece is dropped in the mail and into the hands of the gods . . . where it WILL be judged.

Support Unspeakable Evil in Style

Casting Call of Cthulhu needs your support.  Contrary to popular belief, one cannot produce a short film on evil thoughts and unwell wishes alone.  It takes a camera, some actors (who demand food for sustainance), and monsters, which we chose to create rather than summon, using make-up and CGI.  And now the price must be paid.  For as little as $19.00 you can support the production of CCOC and have a killer T-shirt (note:  the shirt will not actual harm you or anyone else nor will it transform the wearer into a killer when adorned).  Visit UptownHustle and choose from a wide variety of styles for men and women.  Buy now and we will include your name in our weekly arcane incantations.

 

 

Merry Cthristmas

Even though the holiday season has come and gone there’s no reason you can’t continue to spread the dread all year long.  Start with this beautifully terrifying handmade ornament from our fiends at NifNaks.  This horror in felt is the one decoration we dare not remove from our tree – first because we were worried the great old one would be angered and second because we are lazy.  But seriously, we put the thing up at the start of post production and it ain’t coming down until we are finished.                                                                                                              dsc00522.jpg
