For those who do not already know, Mortal Kombat: Legacy is a popular American web series produced by Contradiction Films and distributed exclusively through Machinima’s Youtube channel. Based on the popular video game franchise, Mortal Kombat, the successful web series has garnered millions of views each episode making it more successful than many dramas on national television today. I had the opportunity last week to speak with the Lead Producer of Mortal Kombat: Legacy, Tim Carter, where we discuss how the series came together at such a rapid speed, what actions took place throughout the production process, the future of Contradiction Films, and much more. Read more to listen to the interview for yourself if you missed it on this past Saturday.
After a major tribulation, which you will hear about in the interview below, Kevin Tancharoen, the mastermind behind Mortal Kombat: Legacy, was able to convince Warner Bros. Digital Distribution to help fund and produce his idea which allowed it to become the success it is today. Consisting of short, yet action-packed 8-12 minute episodes, you will find out how fast this series came together and be left amazed by how such a small budget allowed for such an extravagant production.
If you aren’t hooked yet or are not listening to the interview already, Tim Carter also provides advice on how to break into the film industry and take part in the ever-evolving market. This is not an interview to miss out on and I promise you that you will be more educated on the film industry after listening to what Tim has to say. Enjoy!
