Later, Alex Smith joined the creative team and the three began recording the 'Let's Play' videos after they became addicted to Minecraft. The first ever series created by the trio was Forsaken Lands. Hatventures became even more popular with the creation of their second Minecraft 'Let's Play' series of Skylands. This new series introduced the death count system and later the inclusion of three different perspectives. During this period, Hatventures caught the eye of Minecraft publisher Mojang and soon the trio found themselves making trailers for the very company who's product helped them rise in popularity to begin with. Since their growing success, Hat Films has released a lot more content that is not Minecraft related.
While they do still continue the series An Epic Hatventure, a much bigger project is being worked on behind the scenes. The trio have released information and teasers of a purely cinematic series made in Minecraft. They have said that the project, titled Origins, is bigger than anything they've ever done and want to get it done right. All the music used in Hatventures is originally composed by the Hat Films trio. Almost all of Hat Films music is composed by Chris Trott, the rest being made by Ross Hornby, Alex Smith took lead vocals for their single of "Such a Filthy Day". The style of music ranges from somber orchestral pieces to full on techno rock. Read more on Last.fm.
