Welcome to Chucklehound
Thanks for stopping by.


Chucklehound.com has served as a repository for a wide variety of projects over the years

  • 1997

    Chucklehound Films

    Chucklehound Films is founded by Padgett Arango and Johannes "Jos" Claerbout to produce the 16mm feature film Earth on Fire.

  • 1998-1999

    The Multimedia Empire

    We rebrand as Chucklehound Entertainment. Two more short films are created and put online. We release an album. There are half-baked plans to get into publishing.

  • August 1999


    Jos passes away suddenly at 25. To learn more about Jos, visit the amazing memorial website.

  • 2000-Present

    Descent Into Madness

    Without Jos, Padgett turns the site into a repository for a bizarre smattering of projects - a literary zine, random reviews, online games, random musical projects, etc.
