Diablo: Rise of The Hunter

Today we speak to French-Canadian actor, Jean Drolet about his role in the new Diablo fan film “Diablo: Rise of The Hunter“. How did you get involved in Diablo: Rise of The Hunter? Well two, two years ago I was invited to a private screening by a young friend of mine Carlos Cobezas. He was the film Director and Stephanie Van Rijn Vincent (Valla) was the lead actress. A year passed liking each other’s postings until I’ve been invited to a scenario first reading of DIABO: ‘’Rise of The Hunter’’. There I met Amanda Lynn Petrin (Halissa) and Luc Godbout that became DIABLO’s Film Director. We repeat one scene or two to pin point meaning sand will and then there […]

World Goth Day

Goth is a wonderful music genre and it is a way to express oneself artistically. Often it is misunderstood, there are some that think it is a religion, some weird cult or people with a weird vampire fetish, nope…. Keith van Zyl, vocalist of the band Hexotericka, summed the Gothic music subculture up nicely: ”The subculture is marked by its emphasis on individualism, tolerance for diversity, creativity and a focus on intellectualism.” (see https://wolfshadowwispers.wordpress.com/2013/12/10/goth-is-not-religion-it-is-an-artistic-expression/ for more). And what better way to celebrate the diversity, creativity and spirit of the Goth subculture for Goths than having their own World Goth Day or as the World Goth Day site eloquently defines it: “…a day where the goth scene gets to celebrate its […]

AN INTROVERT’S GUIDE TO INDUSTRIAL MUSIC

You know,I’m sitting here in my room reflecting exactly how I became so involved in the industrial music scene when my first outing to a show was in Philadelphia this past weekend. I saw Youth Code with opening acts Void Vision and Psychic Teens and it was wonderful. But, that’s getting off subject. The topic at hand is: How did Steve get involved in the industrial scene? I’m an introvert. At least I would like to call myself that without sounding like another internet user who self-diagnoses their self. But, no, I enjoy eating out, going to the local movie store at the mall, but that’s about it. When it comes to bigger crowds, carnivals, or anything dealing with a […]

rAge Is In All of Us

“That’s how it starts. The fever, the rage. The feeling of powerlessness- that turns good men….cruel” – Alfred pennyworth Those are the immortal words uttered by Bruce Wayne’s loyal butler to describe the symptoms exhibited by individuals that have the rAge and are unable to go to The Dome . It is a condition caused by a symbiotie that turns its host into a rAge zombie whose sole purpose is to go to the Dome in Randburg where they revel in all the entertainment on offer there. First discovered in 2002, the rAge symbiote has infected more and more individuals with each successive year bringing its hosts together from all around South Africa. Although it might seem as though it […]

The Address To The Haggis

Today we celebrate the birth of Scotland’s greatest hero. No, not Saint Mel Gibson. Their real hero- Robert Burns. For those of you who were sober enough on New Years Eve, you’ll recall how we did a small piece for Auld Land Syne. Today we honour his birthday with the traditional salute to the Puddin’ Race. I give you The Address to the Haggis. Fair fa’ your honest, sonsie face, Great chieftain o’ the puddin-race! Aboon them a’ ye tak your place, Painch, tripe, or thairm: Weel are ye wordy o’ a grace As lang’s my arm. The groaning trencher there ye fill, Your hurdies like a distant hill, Your pin wad help to mend a mill In time o’ […]

rAge – As experienced by Sasuke

 

 “SASUKE! Can we take a photo? Where’s your sword? Are those shoes uncomfortable?” That sums up the majority of my day at rAge on Saturday -my first time cosplaying and how I picture poor Jin Kazama would be addressed by the oblivious anime fan mistaking him for someone else. rAge 2014 was exciting and it had an entirely different aspect added through participation in the cosplay culture. While exploring the exhibits and stalls that covered the giant dome’s floor I saw many things and met many people, but what was worth my memory space? Cosplay: I myself was dressed as a rather cheap looking version of Sasuke Uchiha and yet I was treated the same as all the others around […]

Chris Cronin.

 

  Last month we spoke to actor Adam Baroni, we then reviewed one of his films, Sophie’s Fortune. Today we speak to the man who gave Baroni the chance to act and Sophie’s Fortune life. 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 […]

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 […]
