MATT BROOMFIELD, executive producer and director FOR WESTPHILTH PRODUCTIONS; "MATTERS SQUIDLING", SIDE SHOW MAVEN IN THE SQUIDLING BROTHERS CIRCUS, BASS PLAYER AND KEYBOARDS FOR THE HYDROGEN JUKEBOX . The Unholy Sideshow is technically a super-trailer a terrifying oft spectacular synopsis of the dark apocryphal vision of Director Broomfield which spans ultimately three "movies". Matt through persistence and inspired creative discipline was able to pull off a truly radical independent collaborative effort bringing together near fifty writers, sideshow performers like "the Enigma", the Amazing Barry Silver, and "Red" Stuart, actors, dancers, Philly underground artistic geniuses like Naomi and Clay Ryder, make-up and special effects people, and much more ... ... and for more in deep anti-facts and the DVD check out the front page of !

A good sampling of Matt's sideshow/circus/music videos can be found on YouTube. Regarding Matt's earning the respect and notice of the ULA: he videographed and otherwise helped provoke the entire ULA action on the Columbia University campus, "Save The Beats : protest regarding Allen Ginsberg's HOWL, in April of 2006. He also backed the ULA action-reading event at the 40th Street Arts Festival organized by FoundationArts last August with cool hot keyboard improv and produced a video of that wild and crazy public incident!

Text from Unholy Sideshow trailer:

A secret society sworn to protect man kind

Against the Armies of the Abyss With a family

of serial killers

Next in line To perform a ritual sacrifice

Preventing the coming of the dead

The Old Ways have grown weak

With corruption and deceit

Prepare to witness the beginning

Of the myth of our modern apocalypse
