Treevenge Behind the Scenes, foolz!!

Hello everybody, I’m here to bring you two things: (1) some behind the scenes goodness from the set of Jason Eisener‘s Treevenge, and (2) some love in blog-format.

On Saturday morning, Kristin (my significant other) and myself had the pleasure of waking up at 5:30am to catch a cab over to the set of Treevenge in Dartmouth.

Here’s an excerpt from Eisener’s MySpace page, giving you an idea of just what Treevenge is…

New short project ‘Treevenge’

So right now were waiting for things to go underway for Hobo With a Shotgun the feature film, so to do something with our time we decided to make a short film about the life of a Christmas Tree, this is our follow up to our hobo trailer. We have three more shooting days left and things have been going great.

Again this thing is done totally out of our own pocket which is now empty haha and with the help of alot friends.

Before shooting, make-up lady extraordinaire Cadence Macmichael did her best to make me presentable before I got torn to shreds…


Soon thereafter, Jason showed us a thrown-together scene from Treevenge…

Jason showing Henry Townsend, Kristin and myself the scene.

Here is a blurred photo of the work-in-progress. “But why is it blurred, Glen?”, because I’m a goddamned cock-tease, that’s why…

See all that green? That’s trees. See all that red? That’s human remnants. Fuck yes.

The scene we were shown was effing phenomenal!!! (<– 3 effing exclamation marks!!!) And it was only “thrown together” in a couple hours. There was one shot that has been etched into my mind forever, it’s truly haunting. If that scene is an indication of things to come, Treevenge will be far too much fun. People will lose their shit.

It was time to go down stairs and get to work…

Lindsay Thorne, Scott Thorne & Henry prep my head to be TREEVENGED!

“Not cool, dudes.”

The man-behind-the-branch Mr. Jason Johnson. Jason created the Street Samurai costume seen in Hobo With a Shotgun. He created the tree costume for the hero in Treevenge. Awesome stuff…

Here’s a photo of Kristin and myself standing behind Zan Rosborough, the genius of everything sound. For some reason, I look like a fatty…

Poor, poor bitch…

Director/Writer Jason Eisener and Producer/Writer Rob Cotterill watch the action...

Glen Matthews, post-Treevenge…

The aftermath…
Wayne Forrest ( WForrest Photography ) was on the set the day of shooting and took some kickarse production stills. Here’s a handfull of them…


Awesome stuff.

Man, I have way too many endearing photos of Kristin in this blog update…

…there we go.

That’s all for now, I’ll keep you all posted on the progress of Treevenge. I think they had their final day of shooting yesterday, so I do believe it’s in the post-production stage.

Peace-up. A-Town.
