THE GLADE by Andrew Coons

April 24th, 2014


A nature photographer (Jim Gordon) comes to a small town and meets a local woman (Jennifer Royce) who takes him to a great location for shooting deep in the woods. She used to hunt there with her father. She calls this location The Glade, and the photographer loves it. But the hunt is not over yet.

Short and to the point, with a killer twist, this horror/thriller short is a gem that you shouldn’t miss.

Kaleidoscope Man

kaleidoscope man- excitometer - the new star wars? would be great!

As a boy, Tom wanted to be a hero.
As an adult, he has lost his dreams.
When aliens invade, he becomes mankind’s last hope.

Kaleidoscope Man is an ambitious British Science Fiction Movie that might well be the next Back to the Future or Star Wars (just two of the movies cited as major influences by writer and director Simon Cox).

And you can be a part of it, have your photo appear in the movie or get abducted or blasted by aliens, or become an Executive Producer of Kaleidoscope Man.

The Screaming Bear by Shaun Keenan

the screaming bear- embitterment level - disappointment level

The Screaming Bear is a short film made in Taiwan about a pretty girl (Jessica Lin) who loses her stuffed bear on the train. Some other passengers see what happens, but none of them acts, and the bear is sitting lonely on the floor while the girl prepares to exit the train. Watching the lost little bear evokes fantasies, traumatic memories, and regrets in them. It wouldn’t take much to help, but will at least one of the observers of the little drama overcome their fears and inhibitions, save the bear and at the same time redeem himself?
An original idea, transferred to the screen with interesting actors and apt direction, well worth watching.
