Alex Pardee making moves

Posted by Dap1

Pardee is currently in LA finishing up filming Chadam with Studio 2.0 and producer Jason Hall to be released through Warner Brothers. Chadam, the box-headed boy (see Alex Pardee’s Used artwork) is able to manipulate the physical world with his mind. In the series, Chadam attempts to rid the serial killer Viceroy of his world, discovering the nature of self along the way.

Chadam: Cutting-edge artist Alex Pardee and producer Jason Hall of HDFILMS Inc. are teaming up on a 3D animation project based upon Pardee’s character of the same name. Initially introduced as a character icon for the popular rock band The Used, Chadam has become an Internet phenomenon. Chadam lives as the “chosen one” in the hyper-stylized and exaggerated metropolitan island city of Vulture. His power of imagination is strong enough to physically change his environment and, therefore, his world … to save it from evil. The series will find Chadam in a place of refuge, where he and others have retreated to plan their attack against the serial killer known as Viceroy. An action-horror-adventure story filled with self-discovery, Chadam will come to full 3D animated life via the magic of the Unreal Engine 3, the leading technology and development framework that powers cutting-edge games such as Gears of War and BioShock on today’s popular platforms, including PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The Internet series will serve as an incubator for future expansion of the Chadam universe, from additional online episodes to television, film, videogames and more.
