Sea Beast Media Logo What do you get if you mix together, a nerd, an idiot, and a gallon of milk? No. You don't get a very cleaver marketing ploy aimed at retards and pimps, silly. You'll definitely have to add a slut to the mix to make that answer work. What you get instead, is an amazing film developed by my mate John, who I spoke to only the other day, whilst pimping for a slutish nerd with mental defects.

John Andrew Cameron 1) What are your own origins, John? Plus what path did you take in life prior to getting to were you are today?   I'm an indie games developer turned film maker. And after the release of my first game people praised the cut scenes more than the game itself, so I knew what I had to do next.

2) What inspired you to form ‘Sea Beast Media’? Plus why christen your company with this title?   'Sea Beast Media' is my film / animation production company. Movie companies in general always have crazy names like "bad robot". It's the only industry in the world where giant companies are expected to choose ridiculous names out of a hat. I think my name and logo are fairly representative of the content we produce: if you think sea beasts are cool then there's a fair chance you might warm up to our films, too.

3) Could you give us a brief run down on some of your more recent projects?   Most recently, I completed three animated comedy shorts which mix animation with live action. I've never seen the style of animation or comedy done before. Collectively they are called 'Milk Paton: The Motion Picture(s)', were we meet three unlikely friends; a bottle of milk, a genius, and an idiot, as they go through adventures together. They fight over a girl, break out of prison, and fight monsters on an island theme park, all in under 50 minutes. If you like Monty Python's weirdness, and you like South Park or Family Guys darker side, then these are for you. Also, if you want to laugh at Scottish accents.

4) If you could get a known celebrity – either living or dead – to promote your wares, who would you chose, and why would you want this particular person?   Arnie. I want to hear him read an endorsement script of my design.

5) If your movies omitted a collective odor, what would it smell like and why?   They smell like pizza with toppings that shouldn't work together, but do. Who first thought pineapple and ham would be awesome on pizza? He was a bold thinker. Sea Beast makes films that appeal to the comic book, b-movie, indie film, offbeat comedy crowd, yet we don't try and emulate anyone else. It's brand new stuff and we work really-really hard on production values so it's not painful to watch.

6) What were the main obstacles you had to contend with?   The animation process for Milk Paton was expensive, draining, and...totally worth it in the end.

7) Do you have any other projects on the horizon?   Absolutely. Sea Beast just released a free short science fiction film about Jupiter colliding with Earth. Comedy wise we're doing two new mini films soon. Watch what we've done so far, and stick around to see what's coming soon.

8) If you had a motto, what do you think it would be?   The life motto I'd like to share with everyone is "pay for short films online when you are asked to"
