These are the numerous projects that are either collaborative projects, failed experiments, or a particular piece of media that doesn’t not fit under any specific box.
GODZILLA IN CHRISTMAS VILLAGE
Godzilla in Christmas Village was Stephen White’s first official film project, produced in 1998. Using a basic home camcorder, he utilized a decorative Christmas village with an animatronic “Zilla” toy and came up with the idea on the spot. The original VHS cut of the film featured music and sounds played off-camera on a stereo system and ad-libbed dialogue to form a story of sorts. That cut has been lost to time.
This enhanced remaster improves the sound quality, adds scripted dialogue and sound effects, plus digital effects. The picture quality was enhanced to the best it could be, considering the source. While not to be considered a lost gem, it’s a fun look back of where things began.
FANDOM ULTRA 2000
Fandom Ultra 2000 was a podcast released in 2018 featuring George Willard and Stephen White (Porter & Ale), discussing film in a fictional setting aboard a lost space vessel. While the concept itself was novel, the interest to record always seemed lacking. Only three episodes were ever produced.
THE ADVENTURES OF ANAKIN
The Adventures of Anakin was a 4-episode series that premiered in 2011. The concept came from an idea that would have had the shorts themselves be interstitials for another show being developed. However, the overall concept of these interstitials would have been based around the idea that became the very first short. Once the other show idea fell by the wayside, Stephen White decided to produce a few shorts based around simple concepts that could be comedic.
Stephen was only able to produced four episodes before turning his attention to other projects. He always had ideas for other shorts but never found the time to produce them.
THE CHESTERFIELD MURPHYS
The Chesterfield Murphys was film and entertainment news show that premiered in 2012. Only two episodes were produced, mainly due to the time it took to produce the show. Stephen White knew after two episodes that he could not maintain the production on his own, so he decided to can the project.
PUNCHLINE FOR THE REPTOIDS
Punchline for the Reptoids was a project written and directed by William Patrick (under the pseudonym W. Mortimer), edited by Stephen White, produced by Carcarrion Films and distributed by Pencil & Paper Productions.
This is the public service announcement I did for the Smith County Help Center of Smith County, Tennessee. It has been running locally on DTC3 TV, which is based in Alexandria, TN and broadcasts to over 5 counties.
During production of season one of Man Cave, Paiton Stark was eager to be on camera. So, for fun, Stephen White indulged her desire and filmed this segment for her.
Also during the production of season one of Man Cave, Todd Stark and Stephen White attempted to kickstart a fundraiser to help Ronnie Lawson, who had undergone his 3rd surgery for a brain tumor. The idea was to reach 1M views, then donate all proceeds to the Super Ron Foundation. Unfortunately, the call to action fell on deaf ears.
Here are projects that never made it beyond a concept trailer. Most of these projects were set to be fully produced, but something hindered production and ultimately stopped the project completely.
