Atari Teenage Riot "Rage" (Matt Pizzolo) WTO/World Bank/Mayday protest video Alec Empire
 
04:33
[Note: All of this footage is from the US except for the black & white stuff, that's Berlin. But all the color footage is from Seattle & Washington DC] In 2000 I gave a DiY Media presentation at 2600's Hackers On Planet Earth conference. The topic was media-bias/become-the-media and I basically juxtaposed news footage of the 1999 Seattle WTO protests with documentary video footage shot in the streets by activists... obviously the news footage was heavily biased and edited (as was the street footage, to be fair, but that was also part of the point). Atari Teenage Riot saw the street footage and wanted to help get it seen by a wider audience, so we decided to cut it into a video for their song "Rage" and encourage it to be made freely available. At the time, Atari had just played a renegade set on the back of a truck at a Mayday protest in Berlin where they were arrested, so I decided to include that protest footage as well as footage from the World Bank protests in DC (and I have to thank the DC police for being cordial enough to let me get my dog out of the street before they teargased us). I directed/produced this video back in 2000 utilizing some footage I shot but mostly other people's documentary footage (with permission) from PickAxe Productions, RegenerationTV, and Philipp Virus. I've seen this video posted around but generally poor quality and sometimes pulled down for copyright-violation, but I have a decent master and the rights to distribute it so I figured I'd post it myself. If you're interested in seeing/learning more, there are two particularly good documentaries about the Seattle WTO protest: - "Breaking The Spell" (PickAxe Productions) is fantastic and available from Crimethinc - "Showdown In Seattle" (Indymedia) There's also a movie that came out a few years ago by Stuart Townsend called "Battle In Seattle" that I have mixed feelings about.

Next up is Nolan Bushnell, founder of Atari & Chuck E. Cheese. (posted here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5V6j_nwBuA) All these interviews are available as downloadable podcasts here https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/ctrl+alt+compete-invent-future/id582036718?mt=2 About these interviews: As part of the tech-startup/entrepreneurship documentary Ctrl+Alt+Compete, I interviewed dozens of really fascinating people with great personal stories. Of course, only a handful of moments from these interviews made their way into the final film, so I'm assembling a set of special features called Ctrl+Alt+Compete: Invent The Future which will make the longform, otherwise-unreleased interviews available for the first time. I think anyone interested in starting a new endeavor will find a lot of wisdom in the personal stories from these successful entrepreneurs, creators, pundits, and other assorted smarty-pantses. Please keep in mind these interviews were shot to pull sound bites for the documentary, so they're not really produced to be released in this style and can get a bit glitchy, but, again, I think there's a lot to enjoy & learn from these interviews in their raw, uncut form.

Godkiller: Walk Among Us
 
01:12:35
Here's the complete GODKILLER: WALK AMONG US, our first foray into this experimental animation format we call illustrated-films. The first part debuted back in 2009, the feature was released in 2010. We were working on this at the same time Warner Brothers was working on Watchmen Motion Comic (each of us unaware of what the other was doing). The main difference between Watchmen Motion Comic (and motion comics in general) versus Godkiller is that Godkiller's illustrations were created specifically for this format. Also we treated this as experimental cinema and our concept from the get-go was to drive the pace through the audio like an illustrated radio-play with very limited animation. We're working on the sequel GODKILLER: TOMORROW'S ASHES now, but in the meantime you can read the continuing adventures of Tommy, Halfpipe, and the rest in the comics available at www.godkillerseries.com "Post-nuclear punk odyssey Godkiller is making the jump from indie comic book to 'illustrated film' with engaging animation that merges sequential art, 3-D CGI and motion graphics... a horrific yarn of apocalypse, quantum physics, culture jamming and conspiracy theory." --Scott Thill, Wired "There are certain stories that come along every few years that challenge viewers, readers, and the world in ways almost so shockingly in your face that it is hard to process upon the first viewing. A perfect example of this would be Stanley Kubrick's adaptation of A CLOCKWORK ORANGE which was a sweeping narrative that encompassed many of the social issues that were plaguing the country at the time... So when I sat down to watch GODKILLER I could imagine myself being one of those critics who watched A CLOCKWORK ORANGE for the first time... GODKILLER dares to get in your face and test your best inhibitions while at the same time doing its best to make you THINK. Pizzolo is giving you a healthy dose of social commentary to go along with your bloody genre offering... a flawless piece of genre fare... a treat for fans of horror, sci-fi, comics, and animated films that is not to be missed." --Theo Scheresky, Bloody Disgusting The epic story of a boy's quest to save his sister. GODKILLER is a twisted, sci-fi/horror adventure about a 16 year old boy's odyssey through a post-nuke wasteland (populated by fallen gods, organ-stealing hookers, and sex-addicted technowizards) as he searches for a new heart to save his dying sister. "Intriguing... mixes dark visuals, graphic violence, profanity and a speed metal soundtrack into an oddly alluring post-nuclear holocaust." --John DeNardo, SF Signal Based on the comic book by award-winning writer-director Matt Pizzolo and illustrator Anna Muckcracker, GODKILLER mixes unforgiving brutality, quantum physics, conspiracy theory, and secret history for an iconoclastic hero's journey like none before it. Starring the voice talents of Lance Henriksen (AVP: Alien vs Predator), Danielle Harris (Halloween movies), Bill Moseley (The Devil's Rejects), Tiffany Shepis (Night of the Demons), Justin Pierre (singer Motion City Soundtrack), and Davey Havok (singer A.F.I.). About 'Illustrated Film' Illustrated Film is a new filmmaking format developed by award-winning filmmaker Matt Pizzolo and Emmy-winner Brian Giberson that mixes elements of anime, radio drama, video games, and motion comics. Utilizing the original artwork from the comic book, the 'Illustrated Film' adds motion animation, visual effects, elaborate sound design, music, 3D-CGI, and voice-acting performances for a bold new way of telling stories. If you dig Godkiller, let us know at http://www.godkillerseries.com The Godkiller story continues in Godkiller: Tomorrow's Ashes. The comics are currently available at http://www.halo8store.com and the next illustrated film is in production now.

THREAT full movie [gritty NYC indie about straight edge hardcore punk & hip hop radical]
 
01:20:04
This is the full-length cult/guerrilla/no-budget (obv)/16mm/punk movie THREAT shot in the LES during the mid 90s in the final years these streets were known as Alphabet City before the gentrification boom that followed later in the decade. *This is the version that was released theatrically in 2006 with some re-edits and alterations (note the voiceover comments on 9/11, which occurred well after filming). I'm also going to upload the original "touring version" that played in underground venues across the US & Europe in the late 90s. The film was shot super low budget on 16mm film stock left over from local TV shoots and cameras borrowed from a film co-op after hours. You can get the DVD (with soundtracks featuring Minor Threat vs Holocaust, Gorilla Biscuits vs Defrag, Youth of Today vs Edgey, Glassjaw vs Enduser, Killswitch Engage vs Edgey, Bleeding Through vs Hecate, Most Precious Blood vs Atari Teenage Riot, and many more) at Amazon or at Halo-8's website (http://www.halo8store.com). There's more info on the film here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Threat_(film) but it only refers to the 2006 version, it needs to be updated with the full history. Threat was shot in the mid-90s contemporarily with Godmoney, Edge of Quarrel, Godass, and NYHC.

Godkiller demo reel Justin Pierre Davey Havok Danielle Harris Bill Moseley Matt Pizzolo Nicki Clyne
 
01:03
www.godkiller.tv This is a sizzle reel we put together for Godkiller to showcase the illustrated-film style at a transmedia panel. Starring Lance Henriksen, Davey Havok, Danielle Harris, Bill Moseley, Lydia Lunch, Katie Nisa, Tiffany Shepis, Justin Pierre, Nicki Clyne. Illustrated by Anna Muckcracker. Created/directed by Matt Pizzolo. For this project we designed a new transmedia filmmaking format called "illustrated film" where we simultaneously create sequential art for a comic book and an animated movie. The animation is strange, but that's the point... and it occasionally breaks out of the sequential art into full 3D-CGI when we think that benefits the story. The goal of illustrated film is to create an adaptable, innovative format where we can experiment with very transgressive stories for small audiences. This isn't designed to be accessible for everyone, quite the reverse. We developed this format around the same time Warner Brothers was developing the Watchmen Motion Comic. I dig motion comics, but the key difference is kind of like the difference between a movie shot in 3D and a 2D movie with a 3D post-conversion... we're not repurposing comics as animation, we're creating something new, different, & weird from the ground up. "A horrific yarn of apocalypse, quantum physics, culture jamming & conspiracy theory." (-Scott Thill, Wired) "Pizzolo sprinkles a little of everything naughty and twisted into this story and the result is an unpredictable adventure/horror/sci-fi/porno mash-up that is definitely not for kids, but it's damn cool... The terrors and debauchery in GODKILLER have to be seen to be believed... Looked at from a distance, this is a fairy tale about a boy on a quest to save someone he cares about, but as one becomes invested in this film, it drags you through the gutter that is Outer City and relishes in the filth that goes on in its winding streets and wretched alleyways. Pizzolo's story really pulls the reader through the shit and on the side of Tommy so we care about this adventure and root for the innocent kid to make it out of this hell alive.... Muckcracker shows a talent for both design and dramatic angles resulting in a film that sucks you in and makes you feel filthy for being there. GODKILLER is one of those stories which sticks with you long after seeing it. It's filled with sordid fun and cracked horror. Pizzolo has a talent for both quick and heady dialogue as well as creative and fresh concepts that make this devious world of GODKILLER a place you'd want to dive into despite how dark it is." (-Ambush Bug, Aint It Cool News) "There are certain stories that come along every few years that challenge viewers, readers, and the world in ways almost so shockingly in your face that it is hard to process upon the first viewing.

THREAT movie [Riot Sequence - straight edge hardliners One Less Drunk)
 
09:20
This is the riot sequence from the indie film Threat, filmed in downtown NYC (mostly the Lower East Side back in the 90s) though some of the locations are actually in Brooklyn (the rooftops mostly, tough to shoot Manhattan rooftops... although I have some great stories about getting busted on Manhattan rooftops). This is most of the climax to the film, which tells the story of two friends (Jim a white homeless straightedge hardcore kid and Fred a militant black radical) whose boys have a conflict (due to one bad apple on each side: a wanna-be gangster and a wanna-be straightedge hardliner, both with something to prove) that quickly escalates out of control. (If you're wondering about the crazy black-haired girl, that's Mekky: she's 16 and HIV+ so has a bit of a Wolverine complex) The film was shot super low budget on film stock left over from local TV shoots and 16mm cameras borrowed from a film co-op after hours. Threat is currently available on Cable VOD at AT&T U-Verse, Verizon FiOS, Rogers, etc. You can get the DVD (with soundtracks featuring Minor Threat vs Holocaust, Gorilla Biscuits vs Defrag, Youth of Today vs Edgey, Glassjaw vs Enduser, Killswitch Engage vs Edgey, Bleeding Through vs Hecate, Most Precious Blood vs Atari Teenage Riot, and many more) at Amazon or at Halo-8's website where you can also download the full movie.

THREAT movie [formation of the straight edge hardline crew One Less Drunk]
 
02:28
O.L.D. wasn't actually in the original screenplay, we came up with it on-set one night to give a motivation for Marco's character to be the 'bad apple' who gets so out of control that he endangers everyone else. This scene was shot unscripted (sorry 'Cheers'). The idea wasn't to paint straight edge as negative tough guys, since Jim & Ruby are both edge and fairly rational/positive it seemed reasonable to have Marco go extreme hardline without any risk that we'd be generalizing the scene overall. And certainly at the time we were shooting, hardline straight edge crews were a growing trend in the scene... Marco and his crew were in fact based on friends of ours. The story Ruby tells about his friend getting killed by a drunk driver is also a true story, since this was unscripted I just told the actor who played Ruby to tell that story (it happened to a mutual friend). The film was shot super low budget on film stock left over from local TV shoots and 16mm cameras borrowed from a film co-op after hours. Threat is currently available on Cable VOD at AT&T U-Verse, Verizon FiOS, Rogers, etc. You can get the DVD (with soundtracks featuring Minor Threat vs Holocaust, Gorilla Biscuits vs Defrag, Youth of Today vs Edgey, Glassjaw vs Enduser, Killswitch Engage vs Edgey, Bleeding Through vs Hecate, Most Precious Blood vs Atari Teenage Riot, and many more) at Amazon or at Halo-8's website where you can also download the full movie.

The killing at the end was supposed to be shot on Wall Street but we were so annoyed with all the suits moving into the East Village in the late 90s that we shot it on 7th & A. Ha! Just goes to show that elites have nothing to worry about since even in a film nobody will bother leaving their own neighborhood when they finally go postal.

Godkiller: Silent War - wall street protest clip
 
14:45
This is an excerpt from chapter 2 of the audiobook Godkiller: Silent War, serialized on the Godkiller: Walk Among Us DVDs (so anybody who saw Godkiller on Netflix Streaming or Hulu missed this part of the story). This section details a violent uprising on the fringe of a more traditional Wall Street protest. It was initially released on January 26 2010, more than 1 1/2 years before the Occupy Wall Street movement began. * Note: This was intended in the story (a dystopic sci-fi series mixing quantum physics with street philosophy) as a future version of a Seattle WTO protest type event. We're posting it because a lot of people who've seen Godkiller on Netflix and Hulu have been asking about it. The scene is part of a dramatic story and not intended to take a position for or against violence by protesters or by police. Most of the key production team behind Godkiller is pleased to see the protesters and police conducting themselves generally non-violently in the current protest. *

Threat is currently available on Cable VOD at AT&T U-Verse, Verizon FiOS, Rogers, etc. You can get the DVD (with soundtracks featuring Minor Threat vs Holocaust, Gorilla Biscuits vs Defrag, Youth of Today vs Edgey, Glassjaw vs Enduser, Killswitch Engage vs Edgey, Bleeding Through vs Hecate, Most Precious Blood vs Atari Teenage Riot, and many more) at Amazon or at Halo-8's website where you can also download the full movie.

Threat trailer [Kings Mob] - Carlos Puga Keith Middleton Katie Nisa Matt Pizzolo
 
01:50
www.threatmovie.com This is a 16mm film I wrote & directed when I was 20... and I was the oldest member of the crew. It was a ginormous DiY effort back before miniDV and YouTube and mumblecore. The film is about class struggle through the prism of race & gender relations in the shadow of Wall Street... so all these years later it's arguably as relevant if not more so. Starring Carlos Puga, Keith Middleton, Rebekka Takamizu, Kamouflage, Katie Nisa, Neil Rubenstein, Tony Dreannan, David R Fisher. Crew: Matt Pizzolo, Katie Nisa, Benjamin Brancato, Ben Knight, Anna Barranca, Monica Sklar, Jason Rose, David R Fisher, Andrew Hawthorne, bazillions more. "Makes KIDS look like an after-school special!" --Urb Magazine "Unapologetically brutal and surprisingly intelligent... this film works on every conceivable level; it holds court not only as a historical document of time and place, but also as a window into the soul of American adolescence. Great art should assail the status quo, and that is what Matt Pizzolo and Katie Nisa's film has skillfully accomplished." --Film Threat "Thrillingly chaotic, sickeningly violent... the story skewers you. S'like you hired private eyes to follow your kids around at night and they hired Abel Ferrara to do surveillance. It contains voices and thoughts (particularly about politics and 9/11) that you're not likely to hear anywhere else... Hear, see, never set foot in a multiplex ever again." --Terrorizer Magazine "THREAT explodes off the screen... eliciting comparisons to early Martin Scorsese, Abel Ferrara and Larry Clark's nihilistic masterpiece KIDS." --DVD Talk "Simply the voice of this generation's youth. It is easily one of the most important films of the decade. --Earcandy "Great art should assail the status quo, and that is what Pizzolo and Nisa's film has skillfully accomplished." --Film Threat "A personal, surprisingly well-crafted debut. Its complex layers invite multiple viewings... it has the potential to achieve cult movie status." --Entertainment Today "Visionary director Matt Pizzolo takes a harsh look at what it means to be a disaffected youth, showing that the promised land of opportunity and the American dream are relics of the past." -The McGill Daily
