Frequently AX-ed Questions
WHAT DOES ANARCHY X MEAN?
It's a wrestling term I came up. There's a problem with backstage politics in the wrestling buisness, but it's particularly bad in New England. You could be the next Ric Flair, but if you're not in the promoter's circle, you won't go far. I came up with "Anarchy X" to rebel against that as I was pretty much over with the fans, despite the fact that I refuse to kiss anybody's ass or suck anyone's dick. I prefer to EARN my place. Ever since then, "Anarchy X" kind of stuck.
WHY THE "TV" IF YOU'RE NOT A TV STATION?
AXTV was originally called "Good Productions" when it was started in 1994 (Although we didn't name it until 1995). 10 years later, I bought out the two other shares, and intended to turn it into a wrestling video company (which is why the earlier logos featured a wrestling ring), But in 2006, I created Jason's Day Off and started a YouTube channel to put it on. I understood the concept of "Online TV", but as our slogan states, "The TV Stands for Top-Notch Videos".
DO YOU ONLY DO HORROR AND HORROR-RELATED FILMS?
No. We had a short lived Mortal Kombat parody called "At Home with Shang Tsung" and the Jackass-like, "Oh No You Didn't!" We have plans to start filming Sci-Fi and Comedy films.
WHY DON'T YOU SUBMIT TO FESTIVALS?
I do, but not very often.
WHY DON'T YOU SHOOT ON FILM?
No need to, plus it's very expensive. What's really important is the STORY, and if it engages the audience, then digital video or even VHS works fine.
WHY DON'T YOU MAKE A FEATURE?
I'm working on one as we speak.
WHAT EDITING PROGRAM DO YOU USE?
Originally it was Windows Movie Maker, which is considered the lowest form of movie making. But now I use MovAvi. It's the closest thing to iMovie on a PC.
CAN I BE IN A FUTURE AXTV PRODUCTION AND IS EXPERIENCE NECESSARY?
If you live around the Boston area, send an Email to email@example.com. No experience is needed, people have to start somewhere.
WHAT IS THE VISIONS OF VENGANCE 2 CURSE YOU JOKED ABOUT?
Originally, the story for VoV2 was different. It was going to have a Halloween-type formula with three girls. Terry was supposed to be the boyfriend of one of them, but most of the people casted were very unreliable, which screwed things up for us. So the story was changed for Terry to be the brother of Tim from the first film. Thankfully, nothing was harmed.
WILL THERE BE MORE DARRK AWAKENING FILMS?
WILL THERE BE A SEQUEL TO GRAVE ROBBER?
I don't see any sequel potential but anything's possible.
ANOTHER JASON'S DAY OFF?
Again, I say anything's possible, but I feel I've moved on from that.
WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO MAKE VISIONS OF VENGANCE 3?
I wrote a script for it, but no idea when I'm going to film it.
