A few Notes on Transcription & Captioning (to keep the net bots happy): A subtitle file (Transcription) is usually written for people who can hear, but maybe don't speak the language, or just refuse to turn the sound up on their 50" SONY Bravia (Deb), whereas closed caption files are supposed to replace the ability to hear what's going on. That really makes a difference for sounds that happen for which there's no visual on screen, say someone off screen angrily comes into a room, the hearing person can hear a door slam, and someone start talking, even if they don't understand the words, a hearing impaired person can get a lot from text appearing on-screen like [door slams] or [off-screen laughter] or the like, which wouldn't logically be in a subtitle file.
04 January 2015 : Promotional Posters for the 2015 Trippy Travelin' Trasharama Film Festival featuring Sindee the zombie cheerleader and other characters
The poster design ties in with this years single colour Trasharama agogo T-shirt print run as well as the new animated title sequence (created by ArkhªmHªus and Aaron Wakem for the festival (see Below).
25 November 2014 : Holy TromaRama Agogo!!! It's Troma Entertainment's founder and film director Lloyd Kaufman sprucking one of the Trasharama T-shirts featuring Sindee the undead cheerleader designed by ArkhªmHªus @ Monsterfest alongside Master of Trash Dick Dale. Following two extremely successful west coast appearances at Stan Lee’s Comikaze and the American Film Market, Lloyd Kaufman flew into Melbourne, Australia for his first Monsterfest film festival. On November 23-24, Kaufman hosted two exclusive Monsterfest events: an all day ‘Make Your Own Damn Movie’ Masterclass and a very Brady... I mean Troma double-bill - Tromeo & Juliet and the Toxic Avenger.
Troma Entertainment is a Behemoth within the B-movie world, creating and releasing tons of movies, including its most famous piece of celluloid, The Toxic Avenger. Troma has recently released 150 of its movies for free on YouTube, for example the classic Class of Nuke 'em high and Sgt. Kabukiman NYPD they even uploaded some older films which they just distribute like Abbot and Costello: Jack and the Beanstalk, or Bela Lugosi in The Corpse Vanishes or The Invisible Ghost. You can watch more modern fare like Zombie Werewolves Attack! and Blood, Boobs & Beast (a documentary about Don Dohler, another B-movie creator). Mr Kaufman has shown himself to be a filmmaker who truly understands how the internet can help him, rather than be something to be feared, so it's great to see him fully embrace a platform like YouTube to distribute his flicks, and to not freak out about the fact that people can watch stuff for free.

Props and Sculptures : The difference between a set decoration and a prop is use. If the item is not touched by a performer for any reason it is simply a set decoration. If it is touched by the actor in accordance to script requirements or as deemed by the director, it is a prop. Prop weapons (such as handguns, axes or even a fire poker) read well but lack the inherent danger of the 'real' weapon and are almost always either non-operable replicas, or have safety features to ensure they are not dangerous. The increasing popularity of movie memorabilia (a broader term that now includes costumes) has added new meaning to the term "prop," broadening its existence to include a valuable after-life as a prized collector's item. Typically not available until after a film's premiere, movie props appearing on-screen are christened "screen-used". Sculpture involves 3-D artwork created by shaping or combining materials such as stone, metal, glass, or wood. Softer ("plastic") materials can also be used, such as clay, textiles, plastics, polymers and softer metals.
Gallery : Title says it all really. A cartoon is a form of 2D illustrated visual art. While the specific definition has changed over time, modern usage refers to a typically non-realistic or semi-realistic drawing or painting intended for satire, caricature, or humor, or to the artistic style of such works. A
mobile Phone Logo, freehand promo sketches, DIY Character
designs, a drunken bear, farm animals, fish, crustaceans, a
trio of lab rats, football club logos, and a slightly xenoglosic
pumpkin. Because of the stylistic similarities between comic strips and early animated movies, "cartoon" came to refer to animation, and the word "cartoon" is currently used to refer to both animated cartoons and gag cartoons. While "animation" designates any style of illustrated images seen in rapid succession to give the impression of movement, the word "cartoon" is most often used in reference to TV programs and short films for children featuring anthropomorphic animals, superheroes, the adventures of child protagonists and related genres..
