A press release from Darryl Knickrehm of Waylines Magazine:
Waylines Magazine released the Web Edition of its second issue. The latest issue features three new short stories, three new short films, nine interviews and an editorial.
The three short stories featured are – K. C. Ball’s Stop Me if You’ve Heard This One, a case two FBI agents take exploring aliens and jokes. Sean Eads’ The Seer, a journey into a dark wasteland where a boy discovers the secrets of his society and world. And Eric Del Carlo’s The Air That I Breath, a story of a future overrun by pollution and prejudice.
The three featured films for Issue 2 are – Pixels, the amazingly fun video game invasion by Patrick Jean. The Gate, a creepy, powerful (and soon to be a feature) film about an outbreak of mutants in the city by Matt Westrup. And the touching tale of a boy and his robot in John William’s Paraphernalia.
The issue also features interviews with director Matt Westrup and producer Spencer Friend from The Gate and also director Patrick Jean from Pixels, as well as the authors and other film makers. Other featured interviews are with Kindred award winning novelist, Minister Faust, and author Marly Youmans.
The Digital Download edition for digital readers will be released on the last day of March. Featuring all the Web Edition content, the Digital Download will also include exclusive content, including, Screen Gems, a film review section, and other features.
Quickie review: As a New Yorker, I hate the fact that filmmakers are always trashing New York City. Whether it’s to show the ferocity of the alien invasion, or the stupendous nature of weather, or the mindless destruction of meteors, it’s always the Empire State Building, Times Square, the East River bridges, the Statue of Liberty, the landmarks of my home that get destroyed on film. Nevertheless, I find the short film Pixels clever, even though it’s my home getting chomped and stomped.
