Paradise Fear Reel Review

Hello, Slicers! Here we go with another Reel Review and this time we’ll be looking at the short film Paradise Fear. Written and directed by “Zach Deering”, Paradise Fear is a sci-fi, action adventure short. It sticks to the same tense and frantic fun that we’ve come to expect from a Zach Deering original. CinemaSlice.coms Indie Film Spotlight featured two of Zach’s previous films, SAM and Nano Addiction. Both were highly entertaining. You can check out previous Reel Reviews covering SAM and Nano Addiction at CinemaSlice.com.

Two bounty hunters, played by “Michaela Romain” and “Anastasiia Greca”, are exploring the mysterious planet Paradise Sphere. Known only as a vacation destination, the planet is rumored to have some hidden secrets. As the bounty hunters are walking they observe a ship crash land onto Paradise Sphere. Paradise Sphere gunned down the ship. They begin to look for the surviving members of the wreckage. The plan is to capture the ships survivors and receive a huge payday for their bounty’s. They soon end up uncovering the secrets of Paradise Sphere that could affect the universe forever.

Roll for Experience!

How D & D has helped me become a better filmmaker

I’m not afraid to admit that I’m a bit of a nerd. In recent years, this nerdiness has manifested itself in me picking up a new hobby: Dungeons and Dragons. Upon starting to play, I’ve wondered how I went for so long without it. It is a game that offers escapism, world building, improv, teamwork, and chance in a way that I’d never experienced before.

Soon after my first roll of the dice I began to notice something else as well: the many, many shared skillsets between industry jobs and playing D&D. Depending on the play style of your group, Dungeons and Dragons has the potential to teach / reinforce many skill sets you may find yourself needing on your next project.

The list of similarities I’ve found is quite long, so to start let’s focus on one phase of filmmaking to compare: preproduction.

“CinemaSlice presents: Art Lives On by David Waldman” – #11

Slicers!

“There’s Plastic in Our Poops Now”

An online article, dated November 3, 2018, by Jason Daley, writing for the Sierra Club, revealed that a new study found plastic in Our (Human) Poop. Indeed, tiny plastic fragments and fibers were everywhere.

I thought of the Horror implications of this for our species and decided to write a song and make a video about the problem. My song, “There’s Plastic in Our Poops Now,” is not a substitute for the science behind the article. If you are interested in the article and its implications, here is the link: https://www.sierraclub.org/sierra/new-study-finds-plastic-our-poop

Conversations with Strangers – “4 New Strangers”

CinemaSlice presents: 4 new episodes of the 360-video docu-series, “Conversations with Strangers” by John Sklba.

John Sklba has done a bang-up job with this series up until now– but I assure you, the best is yet to come!

Most of us walk passed complete strangers every day, and never give that person a second thought– primarily because we’re all wrapped up in our own life– as we should be! We’re all the ‘star’ or ‘primary character’ in our individual story. But, Sklba (TN) has decided to take a moment out to meet and start a conversation with complete strangers in this series (Hence the title, Conversations with Strangers).

CinemaSlice will be releasing new interviews each and every week from Nov 19th – Dec 10th.

Watch all current episodes at CinemaSlice.com/Strangers for free, NOW!

Meet the Slicer – Justin

Sup Slicers?!

It’s my pleasure to introduce the super talented, Justin Harlan. Justin is the resident podcaster for CinemaSlice, but he’s also very active in the indy film community, running multiple website in support of independent cinema!
Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. Writing about music lead to writing more about film… then podcasting… and now just being an unapologetic genre film obsessed nerd.
He writes regularly at the site he runs, The Farsighted, and Cinapse, as well as on occasion at Cinepunx. He’s back writing more about music with Rock on Philly, too. He previously wrote for several other sites (Decapolis, Crap Filter, Yule Blog), but he forgets some of them and others no longer exist.
Here on CinemaSlice, he is working on a collaborative film and music podcast called SliceCast. (Check out the SliceCast at CinemaSlice.com/SliceCast or on iTunes ). He aims to release 1-2 episodes per month, but isn’t always super successful with that goal. Doing 3 million things, which includes raising two crazy young boys and balancing all that work/life stuff, can sometimes create speedbumps. Please don’t be mad at him.
And, he’d be remiss if he forgot to say… FLY EAGLES FLY!
