Penny Dreadful Productions (PDP), of Duluth GA, has an international reputation for amazing costuming, theatrical and film special effects, and art direction. Under the guidance of founder Matt Silva, this cooperative group of artists and artisans have given the world amazing creations. In most corners of the Geek World, PDP’s work is well known. But nothing they have done so far compares to the scope and ambition of The Remnant. Remnant is a multi-layered concept in imagination and collaboration that includes world class costuming, independently produced short films, novels, short stories, and a collaborative world of creativity.
The Brother’s Young, of Marietta GA, have been creating children’s entertainment, advertising, and experimental programming for many years. Matthew and Jared Young are probably most widely known in the Geek World for Galactic Perry’s Learning Starship. Now they have joined forces with PDP to move this costuming idea onto film, through a series of short vignettes that reveal the depth and breath of the world of The Remnant world using state of the art green screen technology to bring this saga to life.
So what is Remnant? Remnant is a costuming concept representing a post-apocalyptic dystopia where society is segmented into twisted social statuses that embody the cruelty of the absolute leadership and mindlessness of the controlled masses. There are those trying to break free from tyranny and reclaim human dignity. Originally debuted at Dragon*Con 2011, PDP’s vision for the costuming is to produce an easily reproduced costuming line that is tied to films, graphic novels, gaming, and other media.
SpaceGypsies has been invited to a unique behind the scenes view of Remnant production and will be presenting a series of articles that interview key players, explain the social dynamic of the world of Remnant, and present hints about the future of Remnant.
So why does Remnant need you? The answers will be revealed. And with it…you will learn that you need Remnant.
