Chaos is an integral part of our existence. Rather than fight against it, at The Chaos Factory, we embrace it. It may not be easy to discern the patterns, but Chaos is not random. We explore our various interests as content creators, whether it’s writing, photography, film, or the environment, and combine them in a process we call entropy squared. These are the results.
My name is Decater Orlando Collins. I’m an author, filmmaker, creative type who, like many of you I’m sure, has a hard time concentrating on one thing at a time. It’s taken me many years of failed projects and half-done manuscripts to get to the point where I can finish something without first getting distracted by 3 (or 17) other things.
I also like to do things on my own. That’s why I’ve committed to being completely Indie, or as Indie as you can be in this day and age. Whether it’s a novel, a short film, or a music video, I’m doing it on my own.
And although technology is making it easier for creatives to strike out alone, without the backing of one of the traditional gatekeepers, it still isn’t easy. That’s why it’s imperative that Indie Creators everywhere need to work together to not only promote each others’ projects, but to create work that is worthy of attention.
So that’s what Entropy Squared is all about.

That is all.
