Scientists are nowadays explorers. Whether they launch rockets in space, built submarines to explore the deepest oceans and work to understand how our brains and bodies work, they strive to break barriers.

SEEDS is about one type of those scientists, the astronauts, whose curiosity to visit other planets leads them to make enormous sacrifices.

Interview with director James Hartley (TWISTED)

Matthew Toffolo's Summary

James Hartley’s short film TWISTED won Best Cinematography at the FEEDBACK Film Festival in November 2015.

Watch the Short Film TWISTED:

Get to know director James Hartley:

Matthew Toffolo: What motivated you to make this film?

James Hartley: I was motivated by the truth of the character in particular. The character resonated with me as someone who as a teenager had stupid impossible dreams like being the lead singer in a band at 16 and performing at the huge mall that me and my friends frequented.

It really encompasses the agony and ecstasy of pubescence.

Matthew: From the idea to the finished product, how long did it take for you to make this film?

Short Story Reading of THE ATTACK by Mark Renshaw

Novel Writing Festival

Performed by Val Cole

 Get to know the writer:

What is your short story about?

It’s about a guy experiencing a severe panic attack. From his perspective, he views these incidents more like battles, as if he’s being assailed by an invisible force. Using this viewpoint helps him to focus through the pain and fight back.

What genres would you say this short story is in?

Grief, recovery.

What movie have you seen the most in your life?

I’m a sucker for the original Star Wars trilogy.

My favourite song changes as time goes by. One of the ones I keep going back to though is Dream On by Aerosmith.
