Long time no update! Well, these last couple of months pretty much has been all about Videogram. Finishing up the Pre-Cert LP/CD for Austrian label Cineploit and having it sent off to mastering (plus sorting out the artwork, sending in registration forms to my publisher etc.), I immediately sat down to edit a bunch of videos that will be released online these coming months.
First up was the above mentioned Voorhees Stomp directed by Aaron Romero, and, well, I guess we must’ve struck a chord with both horror and gaming fans with this one, ’cause this tribute to both the Friday the 13th 8-bit NES game and Friday the 13th Part VII: Jason Takes Manhattan really took off, receiving some amazing feedback and write-ups from both the horror and gaming communities, and getting an impressive amount of views as well.
It tickled me to no end seeing it getting a much-appreciated mention on Tom Holland’s Terror Time. Being the writer and director of such genre classics such as Class of 1984, Child’s Play, and, my personal fave, Fright Night (“You’re so cool, Brewster!”), it was pretty damn mind blowing knowing that Tom (along with his son that runs said website) not only seen my work, but also wrote about it. Talk about humbling.
Then this happened. I swear I did a spit take the morning I saw legendary merchandiser NECA giving the video a shout-out on their official Facebook page and I did a second one when I saw The A.V. Club giving it a write-up online. Seeing our video sandwiched between news about director Robert Rodriguez‘ next project and the end of America’s Next Top Model was surreal to say the least, but I’m pretty damn grateful ’cause it had the video gathering even more momentum.
Which brings me kinda up to date (head on over to Videogram‘s website for more reviews and write-ups). With all this happening, Cineploit decided to start taking pre-orders of the Pre-Cert album earlier than we initially planned. Slated for release on November 13th, the LP and CD are available now, so if you wanna check it out, head on over to their official website and order your copy. For a taste of what to expect, I uploaded a teaser taste on my SoundCloud. Check it out below. Cheers!
