    “Ji”: Ben Griffin and Lewis Tan on scifi short films

    “Ji”: Ben Griffin and Lewis Tan on scifi short films

    Director Ben Griffin and actor Lewis Tan are here to talk about their new scifi short film "Ji", which you can watch free on Dust on July 30.



    Ben talks about the inspiration for the story he wanted to tell, the writing and production of "Ji", his hopes of turning the story into a series, and more.



    Lewis talks about how scifi romance is the type of story that has a special interest for him, about working on a film that focuses as much on the characters' emotional journey as it does on the special effects, and of course the fight choreography, and keeping up with training during pandemic closures, and more. Oh yeah, Mortal Kombat. So ready for that one!

    First, Gavin talks about the computer catastrophe that inspired the story, his admiration for Rod Serling and The Twilight Zone, his enjoyment from building the suits for the actors to wear to portray the robots, keeping the story focused on the characters instead of the tech and scifi elements, and much more.



    Next, Stacy talks about the effects involved in playing J3 and voicing the emotional journeys of J2 and Jules, interacting with the different stages of the robot Jules, and committing to the donuts.

    The Creative Drive Behind “Volition”

    The Creative Drive Behind “Volition”

    This week is a double feature of featured double interviews, all about "Volition", the smart scifi thriller that takes a look at combining crime capers and a narrowly constrained gift of clairvoyance, and the consequences of dodging or avoiding consequences.



    First up, Tony Dean Smith and Ryan Warren Smith, the brothers who directed and co-wrote this indie feature, talk about the film's journey from the film festival circuit to feature distribution, the process of writing and producing the movie, and more.



    Next, actors and brothers John and Frank Cassini talk about their roles in "Volition", how they developed their characters' relationships as production was underway, as well as going with the flow while learning to understand the twisty timeline of the movie.



    Both Frank and John are active with teaching in the Vancouver acting community as well, with Railtown Actors Studio and other workshops.



    "Volition" is now available through Apple TV, Prime Video & other Digital Platforms!

Good for Sci-Fi Addicts

Focused mainly on media sci-fi (movies and Tv as opposed to books) this is an enjoyable frequent show that includes commentary an interviews. I pick whether I will listen based on the subject simply because I no longer have the time to listen to every episode. I enjoy the team that's been put together and I like the call-in show as well. Full of characters.

Established & Respected

Slice Of Sci-Fi has enjoyed incredible longevity due to the dedication and passion of Summer Brooks and her team. From in-depth interviews with fascinating creators to informative behind-the-scenes coverage, Slice Of Sci-Fi should be on the playlist of any fan of speculative genres.

Snark, humor, horror & sci-fi 🎬🎨👍🎉

Summer continues to be entertaining & informative as well as arrange fascinating people to interview. Many geeky topics are discussed but if for example, you’ve ever wondered how an indie & or horror convention was set up or how films get made on a budget this is a podcast for you. Conventions (& sci fi charities) of all kinds are reviewed, discussed & geeked over. Spock 🖖🏻, Freddie & Ivanova I’m sure would approve!
