Studio 8 Unmasked – Now Available Online

October 12th, 2013 Comments off

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!

There were a few very valid reasons for putting the last nail into SubSIN’s coffin. The fact that my efforts were being shown to a very limited audience, such as Chittenden County affords, ultimately seemed rather wasteful over time. I was fine with it while I had the enthusiasm for the show, but with that waning side-by-side with my youth, I couldn’t justify putting in so much work for so little comparative reception. I certainly appreciated the fans of the show and mean no disrespect to them. But, it’s just not in me anymore…
