“Tourist Trap” is short film of the day on Shorted!

Written/Directed/Produced: Nik Long
DP/Editor/Producer: Adam Volerich
Starring: Natasha Sydor & Bassam Kaado
Gaffer/AC: Hanan Miller

Though complex at first glance, the narrative of the short film is direct and simple, but with an impactful message. It opens on a fairly harmless note which successfully beguiles the thrill and suspense it is eventually headed towards. A young woman clicks pictures by herself in Central Park. Runni...

Short Film Spotlight: Tyrannosaurus Death!

Very excited to announce that Tyrannosaurus Death! by Adam Volerich is now streaming at Bright Wall/Dark Room!

Tyrannosaurus Death! is a film that grabbed me, shook me, and spat me out with a new perspective on the balance between grace and pain that comprises this life. That’s a pretty good value in just 15 minutes.

Here's a direct link to GeekRoom's interview with Adam!

Adam Volerich is a NYC Indie Filmmaker with a half-British accent. When he's not creating films, he's searching for Sasquatch and collecting Blu-ray DVDS. And when he's not doing that, well, he's in the editing room making what us mere mortals perceive as visual magic... #interview #moviereview

MAGNALUX MYSTERY THEATRE PRESENTS: A Lotus 'Til Reckoning

Check out this week's MYSTERY THEATRE feature with writer/director David McElfresh and his killer ensemble feature, now available on Vimeo here https://vimeo.com/ondemand/lotusmovie!

This week's MAGNALUX MYSTERY THEATRE is David McElfresh's A LOTUS 'TIL
RECKONING.

David McElfresh's debut feature, now available on Vimeo, is a depraved,
auteuristic playground, seething with ferocity and delight, yet constantly
on the verge of becoming a full-on nightmare.

"I wanted to see a raw, honest character piece. I'm not really interested
in story as much as I am with character and motivation. It's my belief if
you create complicated people with relatable problems and selfish
motivations, which we all have, you can entertain people in the same way
as, what has become, a monotonous Hollywood film structure. Script and
preparation. That should always take that most time, frustration and sweat.

MAGNALUX MYSTERY THEATRE PRESENTS: Crazy Mike

MAGNALUX MYSTERY THEATRE PRESENTS: "Crazy Mike" directed by Sean Feuer, and starring Dan Gregory and Sean Newman!

This week's MAGNALUX MYSTERY THEATRE is Sean Feuer's CRAZY MIKE.

Like all great film comedies, CRAZY MIKE packs a one-two punch: zany
laughs, and dramatic sentiment. Although it's completely absurd (the main
character gets stabbed in the neck with a prison toothbrush), it has a ton
of heart. The mixture of 90s-era nostalgia and dark suburban madness is
just fantastic.
