Can Aston prevent the worst from happening? As the film's tagline goes "Blood Will Flow," I think we know the answer. A nearly 9-minute short film from writer/director Matthew Janega and Atka Films, Slow Bleed is nicely photographed by Jordan Ewan in a style that weaves together both a noirish and gothic sensibility into a film that often feels like a cut from one of the Saw films with its exploration of violence and its internal and external justifications. While there's nothing in Slow Bleed even remotely as graphic as Saw, the film burns most brightly when Lena, an obviously wounded woman with vengeance in her heart, is building up her emotions and making everyone wonder if she's actually going to strike out at a victim who, for the most part, appears guilty only because of his gender. Called upon to be not much more than sexy with a healthy dose of psychotic, Jasmine Mooney exudes the sort of menace that makes you believe she could have taken this character considerably further than she's given the chance to do here. Mooney has a sense of menace about her, yet if you watch her eyes as she's explaining to Aston why he's the recipient of her wrath it's clear that there's so much more going on inside Mooney's Lena. The cast is rounded out by Sheldon Trosko's solid turn as Aston along with Janega's own appearance as an undercover officer. While Slow Bleed is filmed in color, the film feels very black-and-white and Candise Paul's set design adds to the film's claustrophobic chills. Slow Bleed played recently at Pasadena's Action on Film Festival, where the film picked up a nomination for Best Composition. Filmed on a modest $4,000 (CAD), Slow Bleed was shot utilizing the Canon 5D and Canon 7D cameras in 16:9 HD. Slow Bleed is a rather straightforward horror/thriller that, nonetheless, displays great promise by its lead actress and provides solid proof of Janega's visual prowess. Written by Richard Propes, The Independent Critic ​ ===================================== ​ "a raw element that is reminiscent of the 70s yet with a contemporary edge" -The Cineworks Post, Cineworks Independent Filmmakers Society FULL INTERVIEW ATKA FILMS along with NPC Technologies is proud to announce the official acceptance of their recent short film production ‘Slow Bleed’ into the 7th annual Action on Film International Film Festival (AOF). Founded in 2005, AOF has become one of the fastest growing, high profile festivals in the industry, introducing the AOF channel in March of 2011 on NBC’s Channel 4 in the Los Angeles market. ‘Slow Bleed’ follows Aston Jones as he is kidnapped by the seductive Lena who has a hell bent rage and is intent on making an example out of him. Her torturous ways don’t make for an easy escape, as Aston attempts to gain control of the situation any way he can. “I am honored and excited to not only showcase but premiere ‘Slow Bleed’ at AOF to an extended and influential audience who I believe will find it both visually arresting and thought provoking,” said Writer/Director Matthew Janega of his directorial debut. Despite nearly missing the audition, Jasmine Mooney secured her role as Lena, bringing intensity to the beguiling character in her first lead. Working as both actor and stuntman – in Canada and the US – Sheldon Trosko was a perfect fit for the challenging role of Aston. A native of Sydney, Nova Scotia, Director Matthew Janega now resides in Vancouver, British Columbia after attending Vancouver Film School’s Film Production Program. Having grown up with an affinity for the art of film, Janega pulls influence from all genres and brings them together with a raw element that is reminiscent of the 70’s yet with a contemporary edge. Slow Bleed premieres on July 28th in Pasadena, CA at Academy Theater Six, 1003 East Colorado Boulevard, at 6pm along with a group of other short films and has been nominated for the AOF award for “Best Composition.” ​ Written by The Cineworks Post, Cineworks Independent Filmmakers Society ​ ===================================== ​ "Thanks, awesome movie.

FRITTAION'S NAME IN THE CREDITS ​ -In 2010 Atka Films was invited to the Shapiro Japanese Horror Film Festival to screen "Dinner"; but due to the fact that this film was shot so early on; before Attila had any plans on really making films and distributing; there was nothing more than a handshake; so because of not being able to find a contact for one person to get their release, they could not show the film. There would have been a potential to cut out that persons credits, but the original footage was gone, and the quality was also very low-so any editing would have destroyed any real enjoyment. ​ -Attila was casting for two feature films "Friend "Til the Bitter End" and "Breeders", when he met this great teen cast in the audition room, which blew his mind so much he knew he wanted to do a projects with this group; but didn't have a script-so he wrote one. ​ -Attila has actually done other projects with Andrew Brough on "Friends 'Til the Bitter End"-which turned into a short; but has plans to be a feature; and Jonathan Hamilton on "Black Vanilla"-which also turned out to be a short, but will be recreated as a feature with a sequel. -A sequel is planned, a scary sequel. Possible titles would be "Dinner 2", "D2". ​ -A possible trilogy has been brought up by interested actors; titles for the trilogy "Dinner", "Breakfast", "Lunch". -Allison Siemens was miss-credited as "Executive Producer" for the film on the posters. ​ -The first short movie-as opposed to film; from the director that was not a class project. -10th film for Atka Films, and the 9th film for Attila as filmmaker. -The only thing about this film Attila regrets is the "boing" sound effect in the film; he hates it and wishes someone told him how terrible it was-ironically even though this is an experimental film for him; it just doesn't fit. If he could, he would remove it. ​ -The project was to be put on hold as the director was contracted to shoot a feature film; and thus putting the production behind nine months if they went ahead and shot the project. It was decided by the cast that the project should go forward, and have the post production last 14 months. ​ -Later the composer Mark and director Attila would work together again, as the composer would take on his first project as director. ​ -Jonathan Hamilton had previously worked with the director twice before. ​ -The werewolf prosthetic was destroyed accidentally one day before filming, and thus a Halloween mask was used instead-were it was cut up in pieces and then glued to the actor's face. ​ SOUNDTRACk ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ script(with director's notes) Out of gallery TOP

He felt it was her time to be recognized. Although Magali has always felt opposed to even being credited as a director on this project, as she didn't direct this piece but only assisted. -While creating this video, they also created at the same time the following titles, these are other PSA's that were created simultaneously(which can also be viewed on the Atka Films YouTube channel ): ​ Breaking News(2008) - Winner Best Film(Directed by Attila) Heterophobia(2008) - Nominated Best Film (Directed by Magali Gauthier) Play Time(2008) - PSA (Directed by Attila) Breaking News 2(2008) - PSA (Directed by Attila) Flower(2008) - PSA (Directed by Attila) ​ LETTER FROM YOUTH EDUCATION on win 2008 ​ "Congratulations! Your film was selected the winner of the Anti-Homophobia PSA contest!! Thanks very much for your submission!! Keep up the good work!" Sincerely, Ross Johnstone Director Of Youth Education Out On Screen, Out in Schools ​ LETTER FROM PRODUCERS to fans, cast, crew 2008 These five commercials were created by Magali Gauthier and Attila Kállai for the "Video Out Contest", for "Out On Screen" and "Out in Schools". All four were created in two days. The commercials were shot at the end of April, and now two months later we have received confirmation that one of our commercial won.(below is the e-mail) ​ These short films are not something that hasn't been talked about before, they are not revolutionary, they are not new points of view. Of course looking at these and the ideas behind homophobia, you'll probably be able to very easily figure out what each one is about. Even though we've all heard it before, repetition is the answer. The point isn't to annoy you with the same info., but to keep that understanding fresh in your head. I'm sure your math skills from high school aren't as sharp as they once were. ​ We can't expect to change hatred right away, it takes time. That's why we have to keep reminding ourselves; to be polite, to sympathize, to see what the other sees when they look at you, to remember back to a time when you were the victim. In general, it's just about human compassion, or there the lack of that needs to be created and kept going. We have to keep remembering our struggles and pain from the past, or there's no way to change this for the future. How can we expect ourselves to stop someone's pain if we cannot even understand it because we've forgotten to remember our own. ​ Attila Kállai Executive Producer, Atka Films ONE YEAR LATER letter to fans, cast, crew 2009 It's been a year since our WINNING film "Breaking News" was released to festivals and broadcasting. With major response from hundreds of people having already seen the film, our one year release, and May 17 being International Day Against Homophobia(with a week of events); we've decided to make "Breaking News" public release, as well as the rest of the psa's we've created. This group was created to keep the reminder going of the support we need to keep sustaining as humans, for love, friendship, and to keep our human kind going strong -However flawed we may be at times, there's still some good. ​ Myself, and others(crew/actors) at Atka Films have been a supporter of the GLBT community for years, and will continue to do so. I have proudly for years stood up for the rights of people in voice, action, and of course my favorite in combination, film. Besides "Breaking News" and our other psa's, we have other films that might interest your fancy towards equal rights(ATKAFILMS.COM)as well being in part a community production we are open and look forward to collaborating on ideas if you so have one. We also enjoy comments through our site and email. Sincerely, Attila Kállai Executive Producer, Atka Films Sincerely, Magali Gauthier Executive Producer, Atka Films/Sillycod Prod TOP

MAgali mentioned a contest they could enter to make a short film. Two, Attila thought it was a good idea to get the team of the feature film "Cold Side of the Pillow together and see how we work together before spending the next year together. Most of the same crew was also on the feature, which was crewed and cast before this idea came up. ​ soundtrack ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ script TOP
