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!
Music gets us through the day.
CinemaSlice wants to THANK a group of talented musicians by releasing a new compilation of music, known as MUSIC MIXTAPE VOL 50!
We dug deep to hand select some amazing artists to contribute 13 dope cuts for this project– Many of which CinemaSlice has never worked with before.

Turn up your head phones and zone out to J Dirty, Kemikill, Josh Alvarez, Austin-Michael Riley, Johnny Zuko, Alphabetics, Johnny ZER0, Clay Armor, Amp D (RIP), Peso, Chad Frey, Austin Schreiber, Dowsabel, Quest the Catalyst and Jaysues, 13 Dead, War Clown, and Peter Felicano.
It’s time to introduce another Slicer to the world! It’s our pleasure to continue working with the uber-talented Marvin Maddicks, Jr! Marvin is an illustrator and musician, and has create CinemaSlice Comic Books, Audio Compilations, and film scores for CinemaSlice films!
The last year or so has produced numerous awesome collaborations opportunities– and the future will doubtlessly only bring more quality projects!

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!
This month, it’s our pleasure to introduce the CinemaSlice collaborator, Jeremy Allen! The first CinemaSlice project Jeremy collaborated on is the episode of A Slice of Fright called, “Chivalry’s Dead“– Jeremy volunteered his audio skills, and helped to make this creepy short film sound awesome. Jeremy then took it upon his self to produce the short horror film, “America’s Next Top Serial Killer Model“. Since then, we’ve collaborated in a variety of capacities on various projects– including the award winning short film, “Par-A-Site”– and Jeremy even wrote the short film “O Tidings of Joy” that we shot at the 4th annual Black Friday filmmaking event last November!
Jeremy is a talented writer, photographer, and filmmaker– and CinemaSlice is proud to call him a Slicer! Learn more about Jeremy, straight from the horses mouth:
I was a wanna-be musician most of my life, until I had my first kid. Once he came along, I had to give up my dreams of being a rock star, and sold all of my gear. I hated not having a creative outlet, so picked-up a camera in 2004, and started taking pictures. In 2006, I started working with models, and doing horror photography.

I thought it about time to feature myself in this edition of “Meet the Slicers“!
At age 7, my parents asked me what I wanted to do when I grow up. I told them, “I want to be an actor, like Bugs Bunny.” Little did I know, several decade later, I’d be an animator.
I realized I was a filmmaker at 8 yrs old. I got my hands on an aunt’s VHS-camcorder, and almost immediately started shooting footage of my toys. I was eager to record elaborate scenarios for my TMNT and Master of the Universe action figures. I quickly learned the art of claymation, and stop-motion. I still remember fondly my ‘Robot Chicken’-eque cartoons about my various action figures: Transformers, GI Joes, and The Toxic Crusaders.
As soon as my family bought a Hi-8 camcorder, I was off to work. I went to the library and read countless books on filmmaking, and actively wrote (terrible) scripts. I shot short films, dragging friends and family to ‘act’ in my movies.
I edited “in camera” as much as possible– and eventually graduated to the old “two VCRs” technique. Continue reading “Meet the Slicers: Nic White”

That’s right, Slicers! Friday Sept 21st is the FINAL DAY to submit your short horror script or film to the inaugural CinemaSlice film festival, A SLICE OF FRIGHT FILM FESTIVAL!
We would like to send a HUGE THANK YOU to all of the talented filmmakers who submitted their art for consideration! We were literally overwhelmed with the amount of submissions we received for this event– and we CAN’T WAIT to announce our official selections next week.
A great short horror film begins with a great script. Add a creepy concept, some blood & guts, and a terrifying twist– and you have A SLICE OF FRIGHT!
A SLICE OF FRIGHT is CinemaSlice’s horror anthology series (think Tales from the Crypt or Black Mirror, but in short film format). A SLICE OF FRIGHT FILM FESTIVAL is an attempt to showcase talented filmmakers doing exactly what we’re doing– all around the world. The idea is to support independent cinema by curating content that make us cringe with joy.
We’re working with Slicers in OH, MI, TN, PA, and TX to select the 13 best film submissions to highlight on the big screen– And the most outstanding films and scripts will be awarded with laurels and custom trophies! In addition to these awards, we’re also offering the coveted Slicer Awards, and Audience Choice awards for those in attendance.
If you submitted a film, give your name at the door for a free admission ticket to the event!
In closing– If you can make it to Bay City, MI for the festival, DO IT. Bring your current out-of-state Driver’s License to get in for free!
