IN MEMORY: Carlos Dunn (Indie Film-maker) has Passed Away! (Rest In Peace) (September 2018)

Some sad news to report. The film community in the Indie Field are stunned to learn that Film-maker and Writer, Carlos Dunn has passed away. This news was discovered only this week. The news flew fast that he'd passed away after a fight with Cancer. I just want to thank his long distance friend AD Lane for reporting the bad news on Facebook Social Media.

I had Interviewed and supported Mr Dunn way back in 2013 through this Blog and he was always a kind Gentleman to me online and in Entertainment. I am very sad to hear of this news and just wanted to wish his Family & Friends nothing but Love at this difficult time in their Lives... #Godspeed.

REVIEW: Umbilichord (2018) & Undertaker (2018) by 1i2c (July 2018)

Umbilichord (2018): an interesting little short from 1i2c, now... This was played last Month at Son of Darkfest in London and is a Black & White Short Film set to a Disturbing Industrial Soundtrack Score! It was also shot around London, itself! We follow actress and film-maker Emma Dark (keeping her cool as she struts) pushing an old-fashioned Pram through a quiet-looking park on a summer's day! People are curious, on-lookers are curious by the sight of Miss Dark's so-called offspring in the push-chair as she struts her stuff! In the midst of all this, some strange lab experiment is going off in the Narration which leads to a Bizarre and unsettling conclusion.

I liked the Silent approach to the film-making via 1i2c. There are a few twists, too... but my lips are sealed!! Nicely shot photography and use of wide-angle and low shots make Umbilichord cinematic for a low-budget film, but enjoyable!!

Meanwhile, Undertaker (2018) takes a silent approach to the soundtrack! That is until things start to happen. The silence broken by crow sound effects as there is a Graveyard with a young woman, dressed in black in mourning! The soundtrack picks up as we see a grave-digger aka The Undertaker (played by John Whitaker) start to uncover a grave! Again, the visuals are disturbing! Great panning ariel shots of corn-fields and crucified victims ala Jeepers Creepers' Creeper-style! The Undertaker here, is making human scarecrows and up to no good!!

Both short films are enjoyable and worth checking out... "1i2c is 1-2-watch-out-4"!! Great casting and visuals, greatly Creative!! Watch out... films are to be released online in Future and at Festivals!!

Videography and editing by Nicolai Kornum. John Whitaker provided the Scores and also Produced both films, too.

MUSIC: Ray Redd - Fold In On Myself (Official Video) (June 2018)

Ray Redd has a new official, Music Video online called, "Fold In On Myself". The young film-maker and musician wrote a track and made a music video after a break up. The video and his music has gained many views on Youtube and looks like a new direction for the Western Australian. I personally see this as a personal video from the youngster also known as film-maker, Bayden Redshaw. The style is very hip and underground, but credit must go to Ray Redd. The talented Redd/Redshaw also made a fun horror short recently, called CLOWN NIGHT (2018) - which is a 22 Minute Found Footage Horror with a style, much like The Strangers (2008). Keep up the Good Work, Bayden Redshaw!

Youtube Shooter Was Not Transgender!! (April 2018)

Tragedy struck this past week at the Youtube HQ in America. A then unknown armed woman broke into the building and injured and attempted to shoot employee workers of the popular Video Sharing website: I just want to offer my thoughts and sad thoughts and future positive vibes to the workers who were just innocent bystanders in another senseless killing spree in the USA. I'm not bashing on America, but laws need to change about fire arms and their sources to the public. 

The shooter was named Nasim Najafi Aghdam. A female youtube video maker who had enough of the Youtube company. It was as simple as the website censoring her content online on Youtube. Now, we all face Big Business disapproval sometimes from time to time. It could be copyright from Youtube or a video not Monetized? However, this senseless violence needs to stop in any language or country.

Deeper still, the shooter was dubbed as "Transgender" on some social media platforms! This is NOT TRUE and has angered the LGBT Transgender community to the point of defending themselves against such horrific actions of a another being. Nasim is a CIS woman and this is still a shocking action for anybody to undertake!

Thoughts and Prayers to those affected by the Shooting @ Youtube HQ, America.

STOP THE BULLYING... My Two Cents!! (March 2018)

For some reason, the term bullying is not always acknowledged in film without whispers and further suffering onto others that might not speak up. Myself, I try always to see both sides to some situations, but in recent years of being on my local film scene full-time, I found it very stressful. I can only speak for my experience, but when it comes to being singled out by bullies or bullying during a line of work you try to enjoy, I experienced it online. Also, others were easily lead by such behaviors. I am still shaky and finding my confidence again to face up to individuals, but I am looking after myself, now. That's a Positive!! If you experience any bullying or negative behavior during work, school or in an environment that you have a social circle to think about... then follow my own tips:

1) Record any social media hate or slander!
2) Report to the Police or higher Authority!
3) Talk to  a loved one!

DO NOT SUFFER IN SILENCE... It will hurt you more to suffer alone with zero support. Thanks... Please, stay safe out there!! And be vigilant towards others that might need extra support! Peace!

Stop the Hate... Support Each Other!!
