Misery (sweded) is coming soon! And we're excited to announce that we will actually be making and releasing (at different times) 3 versions of this! More on that later, but for now, here's our temporary poster! :-D ~Marlena (Zombie Mama)
We've got MERCH! And we have two places you can find it:
Scattered Minds Studios filmmakers, Marlena Richardson and Matthew Richardson attended the 2017 Virginia Sweded Film Festival in Martinsville, Virginia, on October 6th!
The films presented this year at the film festival included the following:
Matthew starred as the male lead in Night of the Living Dead (sweded), and was also the Head Wheeler in Return to Oz (sweded).
Marlena played the evil Princess Mombi in Return to Oz (sweded), and played a zombie in Night of the Living Dead (sweded) and was the SPFX Makeup Artist!
The Virginia Sweded Film festival was a fun and entertaining experience, with lots of local stars attending as well as fans. We had a great time!
We are excited that the development of our Talent Hub is coming along nicely! There are now several features available, including "Submit Audition", "Update Portfolio", and "SMS Casting Calls".
The Talent Hub is a MEMBERS ONLY feature. To access it and enjoy all of the features and benefits, you must either become a Featured Talent (by participating in one or more of our productions) OR purchase a membership (after completing the free registration process).
Newest Zombies & Some Exciting Talent!
This past Saturday, we headed back up to Roanoke to the set of Jenny Jannetty's Zombies Can't Eat Airheads to make more zombies, and for Matthew to get killed (again)! It was so much fun! And even though there were less zombies than expected, the folks that showed up to "get mangled" by me were FANTASTIC! It's not just great makeup that makes the zombie, it's also the actor! The cast and crew were amazing as always, and we loved meeting more new actors, who may be working with us here at Scattered Minds Studios on our upcoming productions soon!
We are excited to announce that a local graphic artist from Bassett Virginia, Bellidonax, has submitted several designs for our apparel, decor, and accessories! She is also creating many new designs for future products!
ATTENTION: If you have worked with us on a project, and have a profile as a "Featured Talent", you will soon be granted access to our members-only "TALENT HUB". It is still a work-in-progress for now, and so it has not been launched. But, it should be ready to go within the week, so please go ahead and REGISTER here on our website. Once we have completed the Talent Hub section, you will be notified that you have been granted access to it. All you have to do once you've been granted access is to sign into your account.
If you've been cruising around our website and noticed that in our shop, the "Shop Now" button under the Special Effects Stuff category doesn't work, that is because we are still working on adding our listings. Not to worry, a variety of unique Scattered Minds Studios applications, prosthetics, blood, & gore will be available for purchase soon!
Also, there will be many more designs added to our apparel, decor, and accessories section as well! There will be everything from kid-friendly to adult novelty, and many designs specifically for filmmakers and actors! Stay tuned! ~Marlena
