Wormtooth Nation

Wormtooth Nation Episode 1


Alana May 09, 2008


Man, I don’t know if I can handle this twice a week thing, I want to see it all RIGHT NOW . This is why I don’t watch tv anymore. But I watched this! The whole world that you guys created is amazing. I have no idea where you filmed it, other than it was probably somewhere near Fairfield, but it was unrecognizable, which is exciting. The writing and the story is intense and still manages to be funny. Costumes and makeup and lighting look great too. And music too (david).

You all should be very proud of yourselves and I look forward to see more!

Heather May 09, 2008

Wow, super awesome in every aspect. Can’t wait for the rest!!!

I'm not really sure May 09, 2008

I was going to say what a great job you guys did on this, but then I breathed in some odorless, colorless gas, and now I completely forgot what it was I was going to say.

Duncan Brown May 09, 2008

WormToothNation is a creative and original piece, and I can hardly wait to see the next episodes. The setup is great! The music rocks. You managed to collect together some of the most talented people in Fairfield, and created something interesting and beautiful. I’m also fascinated by the Midsummer Night’s Dream link, which is still hazy in my mind. Warm Regards, Duncan Brown

nina May 09, 2008

Yay! You guys are awesome…can’t wait to see the rest. Great music, makeup, lighting, etc….

Julia Margo Ross May 09, 2008

YAY !!!!!!!!!!! what happens next??!! tell me now. awesome everything. awesome awesome awesome.

Jim Karpen May 09, 2008

Four stars. Very professional in every respect—set design, cast, sound, dramatic tension, pace, editing. Matt has such a presence on screen. The viewer feels like he can just let go and be carried along.

Cooper May 09, 2008

SWEET !!! This is amazing you guys! I can’t wait for the next one to come out!

Adam May 09, 2008

Wow!!! Unbelievably creative, dramatic, and beautifully realized… Congratulations! The music keeps running through my head… how do I get it out of there?

Alex May 09, 2008

Great job guys! I saw it last night, and it messed up my sleep :-)

I can’t wait for the next one!

Galen May 10, 2008

Amazing. I have been waiting for something like this! Perfect setting and mood, great acting. You guys have proved to me that making a quality, feature-length movie in Fairfield with a bunch of friends /can/ happen.

Galen May 10, 2008

Also, any chance of David releasing a single of the theme? It’s a great song!

Cullen May 10, 2008

Yes. It is part of our plan to release the soundtrack for paid download. We’re still trying to work out the logistics (not to mention finish the thing). But yeah, all the catchy tunes of David’s (and a couple more besides) will be available for your listening and owning pleasure.

A Different Alex May 10, 2008

Hey this is really promising – everything after the initial song was pretty good… great effort!

Certainly a lot of effort has gone into it, nice after effects too.

Hal Goldstein May 10, 2008

Congratulations! Great job. Look forward to next episode. What a neat idea.

FarmerFrederico May 11, 2008

I’m captured…I’ll be sharing this with all my friends to find a way out!

Sandy kelly May 11, 2008

What a wonderful, wonderful piece of art! It is so gratifying to see how clear, creative and promising this generation! Congratulations! I love the opening song – the premise of the story – the cadence of delivery – the beauty of the expressive eyes….lovely! Thank you! Can’t wait for the next installment…

Van May 12, 2008

OMG , I am so totally hooked.

Julia May 12, 2008

I knew I shouldn’t have watched this episode because I would be tormented to wait for the next one, but I couldn’t help myself. It’s great, I love it, I love seeing people I know acting so well

Andrew Swanson May 12, 2008

This is ridiculously cool. You guys are very talented, I can’t wait to see the rest of the season. It reminds me of The City of Lost Children and Brazil. Amazing cinematography as well.

Tristan May 12, 2008

Wow, I just love steampunk, and you guys have done an amazing job with the atmosphere! It’s nice to see such an original setting. It looks kind of like bioshock, crossed with the sort of feeling I would get from listening to sci-fi radio shows from the 40s.

Well the story has me hooked, I’ll be waiting on the next episode every week.

sarah j* May 12, 2008

love it! you guys are freakin’ amazing….ahhh the suspense is killing me.

Samo May 14, 2008

Love the steampunk tinge to it. Whoever the scriptwriter is, get the cast to help with the dialogue to get them more involved with their characters or write the characters to better mirror the actors personalities. They act much like i play guitars and it ruins the whole show. Like Neverwhere with worse acting. You guys clearly have talent and dedication to get a project like this off the ground. Go the whole hog and dont waste it.

Marina May 17, 2008

This was fantastic. The setting and story are extremely engaging. I love the idea of a steampunk Midsummer, and I can’t wait to see how you’ll play with that idea. Off to see the next episode now!

DukeEuphoria May 18, 2008

Looking good guys, Interesting story base, excellent sense of intrigue.

Bottom might need a little salad with his ham though. (Sorry Bottom, I had to say it I’d feel worse if I didn’t)

Put it on DvD and I’ll give you money for a copy. Oh yes.

Poul May 21, 2008

Serious Kudos for this project.

It’s looking excellent so far, and I’m looking forward to seeing more, and this is motivating me to work on a steampunk inspired project of my own, which is brilliant.

Thanks for this guys.

Bottom May 22, 2008

Sorry I didn’t see this til now, but DUKE !!! I LOVE that comment. Thank you. I will be eating plenty of salad :)

Yes I know the acting is a bit of a hunk of cheese with crust around the edges. I think basically everyone in this film started out in theater, where BIG acting is hardly enough. Thanks for watching! :D

On behalf of everyone, thank you everyone!


Botched May 30, 2008

Incredible job everyone, you hooked me right from the start and made an incredible world. I plan on watching the next few episodes after lunch and boy i can’t wait to see them.

Freak of Unature May 31, 2008

This is amazing! I only just discovered it, and I’m already blown away. Fantastic work.

Phil D' June 06, 2008

Great job on music, David!

Bobdog July 27, 2008

Amazing, original, superior to anything I’ve seen on “regular TV”. Thank you!!!

Magmar July 31, 2008


I try to be as fair and exact as possible. They ARE elements that astonished me, for example the intro with the music, i really believe it is the best element of the series. It is crafted finely. The music and the sound ARE expertly executed no doubt on that… The behaviour of the characters is too forcibly mysterious for my taste. Maybe i just read too many books or comics or watched too many Lynch Movies, but honestly, it just doesn´t grab me. Somehow i find the idea of “We-don`t-have-a-clue-who-we-are” mildly annoying. It´s a commonly seen trick to instill suspense in a story. But maybe it´s a matter of taste, i don´t know. Lynch does the same but he`s able to bring this whole mythology of extra-human beeings into play that support the idea that everything is dreamlike. Now, Wormtooth feels like a dream too, but it just doesn´t have that fear factor true dreams hold uns in.

The camerawork is to be expected like thus in a student project. But it shows the weakness of such projects very well: Much talking, tremendous amounts of dialogues and not very much of visual storytelling – granted, visual storytelling IS expensive – with visual storytelling i mean special lighting, contrast in the clothing, and so on. Wormtooth looks too much like a filmed stage project. And i am not much into plays to tell the truth.

The script is tightly structured, i think that´s the reason nobody really complains about the faults. The dialogues take center stage but are cut short by the arrival of new characters and so on. It´s in fact very clever writing in the individual scenes. I am just not so sure if the overall design is good enough to warrant that i look upon the next episodes. The first epistode left me interested but by no means really ravenous after the next installments.

Maybe it will get better…

Thanks for your comment Magmar. I think your analysis of our web series is pretty accurate. I’ve heard the criticism from many people who didn’t know what they were talking about, and some from people who did, and I feel that you’ve hit the major flaws of our production well.

If you haven’t already, I urge you to continue watching, for the story doesn’t even get in full swing until mid way through the series. Let us know what think after you’ve finished it, if you haven’t already. Thanks for your comment.

I must make a request for you to keep this website/movie available to viewers for at least through january’09. I frequently share your website with family & friends nationwide….i’m very proud of the creative talent & skill that you all have shared with us the fortunate ones! The Sky Is Free is one of my family’s favorite movies…ever! Continue on!...and Thanks!

Geoff October 21, 2008

Thank you very much :) We plan on keeping the site up indefinitely, but the film is also available on vimeo.com, youtube.com, google video, and openfilm.com if this site ever goes down for any reason.

Thanks for visiting and referring us!

whirr November 25, 2008

Yow, ok, I’m hooked. I’ll admit that I had a few doubts at first (although not quite so much skepticism as Magmar up there!) but I’m greatly looking forward to episode two.

And it seems that I’m fortunate enough to have discovered the series after it was completed, so when I have the time I can see it all at once! muhahahahhaaha!

Sawx27 December 24, 2008

WOW It’s really all i can say…

DoD slot January 23, 2009

Yeah, it’s very hypnotic and enticiugn. You’ll love the permution. The ‘class act.’ Seeing it agsain after a long time is relentlessly refreshing and non-relinquint.

Lewayne April 05, 2009

Just caught this at Cedar Rapids Independent Film Fest (04/04-09). I’m impressed with much of your work on this series. But, I’d probably watch it once or twice more before commenting on anything more specific. The story has an interesting mythology and characters. The cast, in general, preforms no worse than adequately and many perform superbly. The set design/locations are unique, and I admire your ability to work in what must have been difficult conditions. While not perfect (but what is?) Wormtooth Nation is an engaging and unique film, that far surpasses most of your competitors at CRIFF , and I look forward to seeing more of your work. L

kainim April 22, 2009

my guess is he’s the revolution dude since he had a white crayon and the text was in white too (probably everyone got that already), looks interesting, i’m gonna keep watching

Omar Ross July 02, 2009

This is great stuff. I am moving to Fairfield very soon and heading for MUM . I’ve only seen the first episode but its a highly original idea, and you guys put it together very well. BRAVO . I’m interested to see where the story goes but more interested to know what you guys are doing next. I’ll be on the lookout.

TickTock September 07, 2009

I know you must be proud to have made something like Wormtooth Nation, and that much praise and respect has been bestowed upon you by many. But for myself, I must say that what you created was spellbinding, and I just thank you for creating it.

Cullen September 22, 2009

To: TickTock. You’re welcome. You are also right in guessing we are proud of Wormtooth Nation. We’re proud of it because people like it. We’re proud because you fine folks keep finding the time to paste a few words on this wall. It means a lot to us, because the world of Wormtooth Nation and the story it tells, are very close to our hearts.

Brandon May 28, 2011

I haven’t seen this since the dvd came out. I had forgotten how spectacular it is.

Great job guys, I don’t know if you get told that often enough.

Samantha September 22, 2011

It’s cool with a little staempunk thrown in
