STARFISH is now live on Vimeo!!!




Welcome to the strangest place in the universe!

Captain Swank is the last guy you would ever call a hero. He’s a booze-swilling, dope-popping, self-aggrandizing womaniser with a long history of asinine and criminal behaviour. He also happens to be the most infamous galactic smuggler to ever fly the cosmic skies. Commanding the Starfish, a spaceship named after the only part of his ex-wife he ever liked, Swank leads a misfit crew made up of a gay android, a sex-kitten engineer and a really angry mercenary, taking any jobs he can find for cash.

EPISODE 01: TIGHT SPOTS

The crew of the Starfish have been hired to steal some drugs from a sacred planet and transport them to an interstellar buyer but have managed to run afoul of the Ikrodens, a powerful warrior race from the rudest part of the galaxy. Now, Captain Swank and his team are running for their very lives as they dodge asteroids, laser fire and harsh language to deliver their illegal cargo and get the job done.

NOTES:

Starfish was a fun experiment in creating a video in a 1930’s silent serial style only with nudity, swearing and lots of bad behaviour.

SPACEMAN 13 Promo Art


SPACEMAN 13 is one of several continuing stories running currently in our anthology magazine MUTATIONS. This is a sample cover for the collected series of Spaceman once the story has reached its completion. I love the old 1970's paperback feel to the image.

MUTATIONS ISSUE 02

The response to our premiere issue has been amazing and we couldn’t wait to get back to the boards and produce a follow up. We’ve got a terrific selection of projects for your reading and viewing enjoyment. BLACK CHROME is a photo-feature highlighting our further experiments with chrome body paint and lighting (we featured other chrome experiments in the first issue with KROMOZOMES). We have three original illustrated stories ASCENSION, HUMANOID CRYPTOZOOLOGY and PARTS and the continuation of our serialized adventures SPACEMAN 13 and BABYLON SMITH.

Our featured model this issue is INDICA BONDURA. We have collaborated with Indica many times over the years on numerous projects and are thrilled to be spotlighting such a talented and diverse lady. We are also very excited to be featuring France-based photographer, artist and writer Alek and his amazing model wife Matri Donna. We love their fantastic collaborations and hope you do as well.

A bit of fun after shooting video!

Usually we have a few minutes following a video shoot to grab a few quick shots with our actors and models. It's always fun! Here's a few after shoot shots from STARFISH with Indica Bondura and Jaime Ava Jones!

Beautiful Creature


This is a reworked photo from a shoot probably around 2007. We were going for an old film like feel - something you might find in Bride of Frankenstein. This was also an early experiment for Paul with special effects makeup. He hand-sculpted all the boils and wounds.

STARFISH - It's a wrap!


We just wrapped the last of the filming on Episode 1 of Starfish! Now, it's into post-production for editing, special effects, audio, etc. Massive thanks to our amazing cast: Indica Bondura, Jaime Ava Jones, Paul Green and Myki Zattolo!

Paul is currently editing our latest project STARFISH - a science fiction comedy series. We've got one more film day to wrap up and then this project is in the can! This is the amazing Jaime Ava Jones getting her drunk on!

Babylon Smith - Street Scene


I've finally gotten myself into our BABYLON SMITH illustrated story! For all those that are patiently waiting for the project to finally arrive, Babylon will be appearing in a serialized format in our new magazine MUTATIONS which will be coming out later this year. Babylon has proved to be a massive project with multiple photo shoots, world building, image creation, etc which is why it is has taken a few years to put together between other client jobs and shorter personal projects.

New stuff!

Here's just a few new shots and things we've been working on:
