Purging Talon Executive Director, Matt G. Paradise joined forces with iSatanist.com owner and producer/co-host of The Devil You Know podcast, John Shaw to bring you a video program focused on a rite performed at an exclusive gathering to celebrate the founding of the Church of Satan, Walpurgisnacht LII A.S. (2017). While Reverend Shaw handled scripting, set design and post-production editing, Magister Paradise contributed camera work, direction, and lighting. For more examples of Shaw’s audio and video work, make sure to visit The Third Side Network on YouTube.
Back in 1998, Purging Talon Executive Director Matt G. Paradise produced this “mockumentary” on Studio 8 Live / Uncensored, a public access television program which aired on VCAM Channel 15 in Burlington, Vermont, mostly during the 1990s. The video aired at least once on Paradise’s then-current public access show, Subterranean SINema, and then found a home on the now out-of-print Purging Talon DVD title, The Best of Subterranean SINema. Since then, the video had not been publicly available until now. Also, this is the “Producer’s Cut,” which was finished in December of 2003 and includes new graphics, additional b-roll scenes, and tweaks here and there. It has also been preserved in its original 4:3 aspect ratio to make you feel all gushy and nostalgic. Enjoy!

If you have links on your websites to any of our videos previous to today, they might now be bad and you should re-link accordingly. Here’s a segment from “Under The Surface” — our DVD featurette on the subject of Subterranean SINema…
