Pete Schuermann has always been a fan of Kaiju Eiga, or Japanese monster movies. Monster Zero was actually the name of the three-headed dragon from the Godzilla series – King Ghidorah.
Since the first three films Pete had directed had a bit of an outre context, Monster Zero seemed an apt and creative name. The three-headed emblem (created by Greg Kleinert) also lent itself to the three aspects of production Pete was offering at the time – directing, animation and cinematography.
The Schuermann Collective of course is more apt currently, as all manner of creative motion pictures are what is being offered. It is hoped that the diverse body of work speaks clearly to what The Schuermann Collective offers: creativity and resourcefulness for any visual story from commercials to features, done with a cinematic feel and Hollywood-grade quality.
