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”
It’s my pleasure to introduce you to a driven filmmaker, and co-owner of CinemaSlice.com, Michael Welborn! Michael has produced numerous films and videos for the ‘Slice since the very begining os the Slicer-verse. Michael is motivated to create new content that is both cutting-edge and socially relevant– and is an all-around bad ass.
Each project Michael releases further solidifies his foundation as an auteur, and CinemaSlice would not be around without him!
I’ll let Welborn introduce himself… take it away!
“I’m from LA.” That’s what I tell people to sound cool. It’s true! But I was moved to Michigan when I turned two years old so I’m not as cool as I lead on. Now fast forward to the important part, myself and movies.
I don’t recall being overly fond of movies as a child. But that doesn’t mean I didn’t watch or like them:
I just guess I’d expect someone like myself to be in that movie nerd group, but I never have been. Ask me if I’ve ever seen your 5 favorite movies and chances are likely that I’ve only seen 2. I’ve always enjoyed movies but my overall love for them is based on one simple aspect: Storytelling.
It took me most of my childhood to come to the realization that I wanted to tell stories in video form. First possible occupation I remember being enthralled with was Paleontology. I loved the shit out of dinosaurs when I was a kid. I read books on fossils and dug adult human-sized holes in my backyard. Continue reading “Meet the Slicer: Michael Welborn”
This month, it’s my pleasure to introduce an incredibly talented actor and writer, Dr. Ray Clark. Dr Clark has been involved with CinemaSlice since the very first Black Friday event
in 2015 (if you don’t know, Black Friday is our annual filmmaking event)– And we are thrilled that he’s put up with us for this long! Any project Ray is involved with is sure to be quality– because, he’s not only motivated and accomplished– he’s also the most happy-go-lucky guy I’ve had the pleasure of working with. He’s the kind of guy who’s positive energy makes any shoot fun to be on (even the ones that start EARLY in the morning, and shoot outside in the rain
Ray has written multiple episodes of our horror anthology series, A Slice of Fright
-The Confession, The Driver, Encouragement, and more! – and has starred in MANY CinemaSlice productions:
