Which weapon would you choose?

 

  Most of us at 925 love zombies. So today, to embrace that love, we speak to Paul Anderson, independent film maker and zombie fan. What can you tell me about your zombie series? The series is called “Which Weapon Would YOU Choose?” and each episode shows a different character, using one main weapon to survive. What was the inspiration behind it? The inspiration behind it was simply to get experience, get myself out there and meet other filmmakers in the area, while producing something i was enthusiastic about. How does your zombie series differ from others? It differs because one of the main remits was to invite other filmmakers to write and direct each episode, with myself producing. How […]

Today we speak to film maker Chris Cronin. MOMENTS: When did you first know you wanted to become a film maker? What inspired you, and what continues to inspire you? I’ve always been a bit of a walking encyclopedia of film, spending a lot of time in video stores when I was a kid but I think the first time I knew I wanted to make films was when a teacher shoved a camera in my stomach. I cut a few shots together that made […]

HEXOTERICKA!

 

  KEITH! Today we interview one of Gauteng’s best known Darkwave bands, Hexotericka. ALLEN! What’s the origin of your band name? We are called Hexotericka. The name is a combination of Esoterica and Hexes, so I suppose you can say it means that hexes are very esoteric. It was just a fitting name that went hand in hand with some of our songs’ subject matter. What genre of music do you consider your work to be? We originally envisioned Hexotericka as an electronic Darkwave band back in 2007, but since about 2010 we have moved more towards a Gothic-Rock sound. However, I believe it is up to the listener to decide for themselves, as we usually just play what feels […]

Deserae Le Roux.

 

 Nerds and sex appeal are not always synonymous, so when we discover a gorgeous geek our attention is grabbed and our phases are set to… (You know the rest. -Ed.) How long have you been dancing? I took my first dance class in April of 2001 and have been performing since August of that same year. My first performance was at the Alton, IL YWCA. What got you into dancing? I was looking for a way to make new friends after moving to St. Louis. My mom had taken bellydance classes in the early 80’s and she suggested I try it. That week I saw a flyer for bellydance classes at a shopping mall and decided it must be fate. […]

Retinal Burn!

 

 Today we speak to local band, Retinal Burn! What’s the origin of that name? It is from eye damage that can occur from staring at the sun or other bright objects for too long. It was just something I though worked with the type of music we were making at the time. What genre of music do you consider your work to be? I would classify it as experimental electronica, with synthpop and industrial influences. History of your project? In the early 2000s I was the lead vocalist and songwriter of the Goth Rock band Disciples of Sorrow. There were so many other kinds of songs running around my head that just didn’t fit into the goth genre. I started […]

Eöl Swords.

 

   Swords, most cos-play people use them, most geeks love them, most “normals” fear them… and with good reason. A skilled smith can create the superior technology that will give you the cutting edge. BUT, what if you want a real sword, a display sword,  a sword of +100 fatality? Who do you talk to? Well, we here at 925|Rebellion know of only one place to go… Eöl Swords. And today, we were lucky enough to interview them. Why swords? As a teenager it was all swords, swords, swords, from Tolkien books to knights and Celts and crusaders. I asked (begged) my parents to let me have a forge in the outside storeroom – NO. So I studied Architecture then […]

 Today we speak to Indian film-maker, Subhasis Banerjee. Subhasis produces small indie films and productions, though he has bigger plans on the horizon. When did you first know you wanted to become a film maker? Well I’ve liked to watch movies from childhood. I used to participate in dramas in our school and many other places. I guess that’s the time when I decided of becoming a film-maker. What inspired you, and what continues to inspire you? It’s hard to say what inspired me. But truly speaking, some films directed by renowned Bengali film directors Sattyajit Roy and Rittwik Ghatak inspired me a lot. Such films like Pather Panchali, Meghe Dhaka Tara have always been an inspiration to me. My […]

Great Geek Collective!

 

 Today we speak to Dina Steyn, one of the heads of the Great Geek Collective. Where did you get the name? Finding a name for the Great Geek Collective’s (GGC’s) con was tricky. We asked people to submit names and then had a vote. The funniest suggestion that didn’t make it was “PretCon”. G²C² is short for Great Geek Collective Convention. How long has it been running? G²C² is in its first year. Its forgoer, Upcon (University of Pretoria Convention) was in its late teens. We chose the theme “Phoenix Rising” to symbolise and celebrate the con’s rebirth as G²C².
