Cat Scare

ROBO: The term "cat scare" refers to the horror trope in which tension is built towards a loud, sudden "scare" moment, only to be let off by the sudden appearance of something non-threatening (oftentimes a cat). Robots, of course, do not get frightened. Consequently, I find most cat scares utterly ineffective.

Length: 2 minutes.

Released: October 31, 2014.

 

The Whiteness of the Whale

BEN: Lasers, explosions, fighter planes. At Blue Dragon Studios, we often find our literary discussions follow a similar trajectory...

Length: 2 minutes.

Released: October 16, 2014.

 

The Legend of Stamp Jackson

BEN: High adventure in the old west! When a renowned outlaw guns down her family, a young woman enlists the aid of a hotshot gunman to claim her revenge. Will their combined efforts be enough to stop the prolific murderer? Or will their corpses simply add to the mounting legend of Stamp Jackson?

Length: 15 minutes.

Released: October 5, 2014.

 

Horsing Around: Making The Legend of Stamp Jackson

BEN: When producing a sprawling Western on a shoestring budget, it's important to maintain an atmosphere of professionalism at all times. No one embodies this philosophy quite like Blue Dragon Studios. When it comes time to making movies, we don't mess around. No sir, not at all. Horseplay of any kind is strictly verboten.

Length: 12 minutes.

Released: October 5, 2014.

 

Blue Dragon Studios Studio Tour

BEN: Oh god.

ROBO: Yes.

BEN: Where to begin? I think… I think, in life, we all make mistakes. Some people just don’t have robots who post videorecordings of their mistakes publicly on the internet. I mean, c’mon! We’ve all been here. Who among us hasn’t forgotten that they invited their actress friend to give a tour of their production facilities on a day they were closing a major drug deal and hosting a pimp or two? 

ROBO: Indeed. A common occurrence. I am reminded of the old human adage, “Let he who has not berated a cat in the nude cast the first stone.”

BEN: Precisely.

Length: 2 minutes.

Released: August 25, 2014.

 

Brody's Six-Shooter Bottle Trick

BEN: My seven year-old cousin Brody is something of a shooting savant. Here he is showing off his skills on the set of The Legend of Stamp Jackson.

Length: 1 minute.

Released: July 15, 1014.

 

Fireworks

ROBO: Generally, I do not care for human cinema.

BEN: As compared to what? Robot cinema?

ROBO: But this Fireworks picture touches on an ingrained cowardice/weakness within organics that I find particularly poignant. One way or another, your films excel at depicting mankind's numerous failings.

BEN: You really know how to give a compliment, ROBO.

Length: 2 minutes.

Released: June 25, 2014.

 

Night After Night

BEN: A vampire struggles with the day-to-day of living forever.

KEVIN: It took him ten years, but Ben finally made a good decision. He gave me the starring role in a project. I knocked it out of the park, of course, but there's only so much that can be done with this wretched material.

Length: 10 minutes.

Released: October 31, 2013.

 

Plus One

BEN: When you take a Blue Dragon Studios movie and strip it of guns, robots, and lasers, what are you left with? Plus One! In this comedic character study, a young man's relationship is tested by an obstacle more terrifying than any other: the heinous, horrible wine and cheese party.

Length: 12 minutes.

Released: June 17, 2013.

 

Prototype

BEN: In this slick, flashy, sci-fi actioner, two highly trained espionage agents are sent to investigate mysterious technology giant ProtoGeni. As they delve deeper into the labyrinthine complex, intrigue, mistrust, and gunplay reign. In terms of production value, Prototype is very likely Blue Dragon Studios' crowning achievement. Dim the lights, hit fullscreen, and enjoy!

Length: 18 minutes.

Released: January 30, 2013.

 

Prototype: Where do 8 months go?

BEN: A project like Prototype is a mammoth undertaking for a production company of Blue Dragon Studios' means. See how it all came together in this behind-the-scenes documentary.

Length: 11 minutes.

Released: January 30, 2013.
