Meet the Slicer: Ray Clark

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:
  • Curb Stomp
  • Kung Fuckery
  • Cry for Paul
  • Fanatic
  • Terminal B
  • The Electronic Moving Picture Show – Ep#1
  • Fuck Green Eggs and Ham
  • Playground X (co-Host)
  • Humans
  • The Devil Bat
  • DARKLING
  • A Slice of Fright Episodes:
    • “Doppelgänger”
  • and more!

One For the Show, Two For the Money

This will be a review of the CinemaSlice Short Film Double Feature, covering two short film releases by Michael Welborn: Sleep / Humans

The first entry is “SLEEP

A horror film with a mix of humor and sadism. I feel this film is a lot longer than it needs to be. The opening itself running a slightly-past-tolerable 2 minutes, plus. I’m not sure if the background images really do much for setting up the story itself (rather, justifying the amount of time spent on them). It’s possible there’s some key element among them, but after a couple of viewings it still eludes me – other than establishing a medical-theme. The one nice thing though is the opening soundtrack (by AVZTN), which has a special creepiness to it – the classic haunting sounds do produce a chilling effect, causing uneasiness in the viewer (or at least to me).

The first shot is a close-up of an anesthesiologist (played by Michael Welborn), explaining to a patient who he is and what his duties are suppose to be. We then see the patient (Mr. Covington, played by Brandon Guiles). We quickly learn this is suppose to be an appendectomy. However the bedside manner of the physician is disturbing Covington a bit.
