These days, everybody is an actor or a film maker. You don't hear people saying I want to be a Puppeteer. So hopefully there is less for us to compete with. We both have a deep respect for JIM HENSON, what he did to revolutionize puppets and educational TV. He took puppets into Prime Time with the MUPPETS. Puppets went into the real world with the MUPPET MOVIES and eventually gave way to ANIMATRONIC dragons and Ninja Turtles. It's an incredible MAGIC that has raised Generation X and has evolved with us. Many of the original Muppeteers have passed. Who is going to pass the magic on to the next generation? Hopefully...people like us.
Enigma? Arts and Entertainment is composed of actor/writer Michael C. Parks and Scott M. Bristol who does a bit of everything. One day, they decided to get a couple of puppets and customize them. The next thing they knew, the puppets had personalities and were stealing the spotlight every chance they got. The "monsters" had such a life of their own, they were being mistaken for children in costumes. Everybody wanted to cuddle up to these cute fuzzy critters (ignoring the puppeteers in most cases). The guys knew they were on to something.
SPAZ, ZED, ABBIE , GERTIE and Edgar the Raven, have been seen at many conventions in the past few years. They had reoccurring roles on the local HORROR DUNGEON web show. Now they have decided it's time to be who they really are and tell they're own stories. Spaz has put together what he calls his M3P Web Blog. M3P stands for Make Me a Muppet Please. As Spaz tries to demonstrate his talents to gain the attention of the MUPPET HR department, the others join in the madness and put the ADD in ADD-VENTURE. Here is our just posted first Video with the little monsters.
Thay say you are only 6 people away from knowing everybody on the planet. Please help our cause and pass it on to everyone you know.

CARMEL, IN - Writer and Director Christopher Allen has announced Rise of Metropolis, a new production his RACSO team plans to shoot in June, 2012. Allen helms his third endeavor into the fan based production, with popular titles such as “Star Trek vs Batman” and “Quantum Leap; A leap to Di for” to his credit. Allen’s 2009 film, “A Time for the Heart”, was also selected for competition in the San Diego Comic Con International Film Festival in 2010.
Returning to the RACSO helm is co-producer David Briggs, who produced RACSO’s previous two features. Matt Beikes of Jazzy Dog Productions also joins RACSO as Assistant Director while Daniel Risk serves as Cinematographer for the production.
Rise of Metropolis centers on The Dark Knight, Superman, and Wonder Woman characters immersed in modern day social and complex political dilemmas. The popular trio is stands against Ra’s Al Ghul, who has returned to Gotham City to finish off not only Gotham City, but Metropolis and the entire United States Government. Appearances will also include Harley Quinn, Scarecrow, Bizarro, and the Joker. Fans may recall the 2010 incarnation, “Fall of Gotham”, delayed in 2010, but has been re-tooled into a smaller, leaner production. "Most of the original cast has returned," said Allen. "I am grateful for their continued belief in me." Cast members include Chris Spurgin, John Gearies, Cassandra Nuss, Lisa Marie Smith, Carrie Bennett Fedor, David Briggs, Daniel Boughton, and Larry Adams.
Allen is also unlocking the RACSO’s vaults for some impressive rewards to fans that help get Rise of Metropolis off the ground. Fans and supporters can receive The Dark Knight, Wonder Woman, and Superman tailor-made costumes used in the film, as well as the entire costume collection from the immensely popular “Star Trek vs. Batman” film from 2006. Kickstarter supporters are also given exclusive on-set access, previewing the film before it premieres, DVD’s of all three fan-films, and much more.
“We’re giving folks the exclusive chance to actually live their investment, not just get the usual DVD. There has to be an incentive for people to help. Here, they can visit the set, have fun, and get some remarkable collectibles from this project.” Allen added. “I want it to be a win-win for everyone.”
