Filmography[edit]

Hazmazk Anthology[edit]

Embryoroom so far has made a couple of “intersodes” (similar to episodes in a TV series, but made for the web), two music videos based on the respective intersodes (The Third Rail & Hothouse; Chamber of Aversion & Character Assassination). When the various intersodes are completed, they will make a feature film called Hazmazk which will revolve around a theme of the “abduction phenomena”. This phenomenon, sometimes attributed to aliens, follows a series of events that happened and those who lived these experiences.[6] Intersodes were released on amazon.com[2] and iTunes.[3][4][5] Hazmazk premiered at The Museu d'art Contemporani de Barcelona during the Sónar Festival.[7] [8] [9] [10]
