ANARCHY PRODUCTIONS

Anarchy Productions is an independent movie company that has operated in the Genesee County area for over 20 years. They specialize in low budget horror movies and are very proud of their roots and connection to the area.

"The rest of the world sees us as the "Murder Mitten" or the city with the bad water", says John A. Benjamin, owner of Anarchy Productions, "I think it's a shame that the spotlight never gets to shine on all the creativity and good that is happening here. Music, art and film are exploding but no one would ever know it outside of the area"

Anarchy Productions has a catalog of over twelve movies in its library, all made with local talent and material. Titles such as: Feeding Patterns, The Last Horror Movie, Prey, Victim Zero, The Executioner's Tale and its sequels have earned them fans around the world. From California to Israel, Anarchy Productions has learned that horror is a universal language!

Anarchy Productions is also very proud to be a part of this year's Monster Marketplace and wanted to take a moment and thank Chris Ringler and his staff for bringing something positive to our city.

See you in September...We have such sights to show you!

SCARED CROW STEAMWORKS

With an extensive background in design, Heather Wright has been handcrafting projects most of her life with a focus on journals in early 2007. Parched for change, she began making jewelry in early 2014 with simple ideas that grew into more elaborate designs incorporating her love for the Steampunk genre, nautical themes, and horror. In turn, she had developed a trademark style as a jewelry architect, always challenging herself to build each piece more unique than the last. This creative culmination and peaked public interest in her hometown of Flint, Michigan, led her to develop her newfound passion into a business. Thus, Scared Crow Steamworks was born.

Spirit animal: cephalopods. Inspiration: history and antiques. Favorite fictional character: Bender B. Rodriguez. Favorite creative mind: Tim Burton.

Scared Crow Steamworks recycles antique pocket watch parts, watch parts, and clock parts, incorporating them with modern elements, semi-precious stones, and a splash of edgy into their accessories. Each piece is absolutely unique, ensuring each outfit to be as exceptional as the next. Quality, attention to detail, and accountability are very important to their overall business model.
