G.L.O.W.

 

 Today we speak to internationally known, locally made, Dark-Electro Band, G.L.O.W. What’s the origin of your band name? G.L.O.W. was derived from the Industrial/E.B.M. scene with influences of personal burdens, reminiscence, retaliation and one putting their foot down. What genre of music do you consider your work to be? Industrial/E.B.M. History of your G.L.O.W? G.L.O.W. started off with me as a solo artist from 2008 until present. I became recognized on MySpace and Soundcloud with songs such as Anger, Levitate, Plastic and Flying Dutchman (Final Quest?).

The Joys (and movie problems) of Archery.

 

 “HOYT SPYDER TURBO.” Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock in the Karoo for the last decade or so, (And who can blame you?) you will have noticed that archery seems to be the new number one Epic Weapon Of Cool Movie Type People. Films such as Lord of the rings started the whole glorious mess followed by the new(er) Robin Hood, The Hunger Games, Thor (Hawkeye briefly), The Avengers (More Hawkeye), Brave, The Hobbit and so on and so forth. Now this is fantastic from the point of view of the archery industry in South Africa, and this Troll approves that part at least. There are a few…. problems however.  “STROTHER WRATH SHO.”  The movies have given the average […]

What inspired you, and what continues to inspire you? I’m different to most actors. I’m more inspired by great people that become actors than the whole drama scene. […]

This is Not Your Grandfathers Star Trek (It’s Better)

 

 “I fear the Federation is on the verge of collapse” -Admiral Pavel Chekov. In May 2005, Star Trek Enterprise ended its run.

Zombie Film S.A.

 

 Today we meet a local chap -Jarrod Saunders- who is producing short South African zombie films. Why a zombie movie? There are many answers to that question. One: because Zombies are relevant and trending. Two: because I wanted to do something a bit more fun with zombies and a Christian film (yes, this short film was funded by CVC Media, a Christian media company). Three: because it gave me a platform to experiment and do some of the weirdest things I’ve done in film so far. I mean there is so much stuff hidden in the short film that people haven’t seen or heard. For example, not many people notice the classic Frito’s jingle playing in the background of one […]
