Hell is coming. Soon.

 
KDM Productions’ Kevin Mauch Produced and Directed a music video for local artist, Mark Mitten. The song is called “Four Horsemen” and features an apocalyptic theme. “Mark approached me in late 2010 to Direct his next video, which he wanted to do for a song he wrote for one my short films called “Pour Me“, says Kevin. “This song, Four Horsemen, has a catchy, acoustic reverence that I enjoy, so I was certainly interested. Mark agreed to let me take some time and come up with a concept that brings a third dimension to the song. I went back and forth with Mark over 2011 before finalizing the script and having a story I wanted to tell. It’s a bit edgy and some will even consider it controversial, but I think it touches on a topic that needs addressed even though it’s uncomfortable.” The music video for “Four Horsemen” plays more like a short film, running just under 10 minutes and containing narrative scenes by Denver actors Brock Benson, Rick Yaconis, Jim Forbes and Elizabeth Masters. “It’s more like a Michael Jackson music video where the music is woven throughout a narrative story…without the dance numbers.”, says Kevin.  
 
UPDATE: Due to an unforeseen delay in the VFX, it’s taking a little longer to wrap up the post-production. Stay tuned as we’re diligently working on getting things back on track. It will be worth the wait as the VFX we’ve seen so far are coming out better than anticipated!

Delta Dental’s

“THE CLEANING”

 

“The Cleaning” is a short, live-action/animation promotional film for Delta Dental of Colorado. It’s targeted to Kindergarten-2nd Graders.

The Tooth Fairy calls on her trusty sidekick, Chopper (Delta Dental of Colorado’s Mascot), to do a clean sweep throughout the house after she finds a rotten tooth left by a young boy. Instead of money, the boy receives a lesson that only the Tooth Fairy and Chopper can teach.

This project will be sent all over the state of Colorado, along with a CD-Rom filled with lesson plans, coloring pages and more, to school districts and dental offices.  This project was produced by KDM Production in English and natively in Spanish as well to hit the largest core of Delta Dental’s target audience.  Over 1,000 copies have been distributed across the state.
