Mad Nation - Post Appocalyptic Western

By August 28, 2013

After several years of studying video production, theatre, radio, and also various types of building and manufacturing at Fitchburg State College in Massachusetts, Ethan Taranto-Kent moved to Los Angeles in 2010 to begin his career as an actor and short film maker. He has also worked as a prop master, prop maker, set builder, film armorer, and firearms instructor.  Taranto-Kent left art department work to pursue an acting career.

From his kickstarter: My name is Ethan (Taranto-Kent), and I love making movies. Mad Nation is one of those movies. It is, in essence, a post-apocalyptic western series. It's been a few hundred years after the bombs went off, and life in the former USA has largely returned to that of the mid-nineteenth century.

Films like The Road or The Road Warrior (no relation) or video game franchises like Fallout or Wasteland reflect one part of Mad Nation.  In Mad Nation, these themes are married to classic western ideas found in shows like Deadwood or films like True Grit, 3:10 to Yuma, and the Dollars Trilogy.
