Made Men Production
Ok..So it's not London but is Great Britain! Made Men Production is happy to announce a new joint effort with Goodfella Productions on the machinima, Narcosantos (Narco Saints)
Wayne Clingman of WI based Made Men Production announced today that his company has launched a joint effort with Goodfella Productions, Glasgow Scotland, on a Machinima take on the world of the Cartels in Mexico and the U.S.A. Machinima being the art of filmmaking from inside a game system.
Wayne spoke out about how "far too little is told of how the world of the Cartels is having an influence on both sides of the border.” He believes that it’s “a story that must start being told."
Mr. Richard Reid of Goodfella Productions included, “knowing that this story is a break out, I feel that a machinima based on the GTA game platform is the best way to engage both an English speaking and Hispanic world in a short form way that can be consumed on a mobile device. Few, damn few if any, are combining this technology to reach out to tell the stories we have in store.”
Mr. Clingman went on to say, "to see the work that Richard Reid has done with Goodfella Productions and machinima opened up my eyes to fantastic possibilities in creative story telling."
The project, Narcosantos, tells of two hard men, both of them killers, trying to find redemption in whatever form it takes in a world gone mad. Does good still exist or is just all different shades of evil?
