THE TIMESLIP CONTINUES SUCCESSFUL RUN WITH TWO BIG FESTIVALS SCREENING NEXT WEEK.

by john on Nov.04, 2012, under Films, SCREENINGS, Site News, The Timeslip

The Timeslip has become the most successful Chance Encounters film to date with two big festivals approaching next weekend. With another festival already set for February next year this will make it’s fifteenth film festival to date. Last month saw The Timeslip among some big films at the Tri-Cities Independent Fantastic Film Festival held in Washington, U.S.  Meanwhile, in England it was a sort of homecoming at Colchester Film Festival (In it’s first year) that seemed delightfully fitting screening The Timeslip for their very own homegrown Chance Brothers of Colchester, Essex at the newly built Art Centre.

All this and a honored semi-finalist position for Something Like a Phenomenon a script by yours truly at the world renowned horror film festival Shriekfest in October.

The two Film Festivals screening The Timeslip next weekend are;

Buried Alive Film Festival on Friday November 9th! Second down! In Walking Dead territory of Atlanta, Georgia!

Horrible Imaginings Film Festival on Saturday November 10th at 10:12pm! In beautiful San Diego, California boasting big films and and a wonderful Horror art gallery including work by my friend Charlie Zacherl.

Set the date!

All this and more!

Get on board with our ongoing collaborative project with Richard Chance’s sci-fi epic The Last War and watch out for the new release of The Veil: Unmasked Edition streaming soon!

THE TIMESLIP (2011) – 15MIN – SHORT – DIRECTED BY THE CHANCE BROTHERS

A business man crosses a busy city street … and awakes trapped in
another time.
London is gone along with the buildings, cars and people;
it has been replaced by a never-ending forest.
The man wanders the wilderness alone, without food or shelter.

Days pass and the man discovers he is not alone and
that the forest holds dangers far worse than wolves …

WINNER

OFFICIAL SELECTION

“A original and fascinating piece … an intriguingly existential
science-fiction short film.”
MOVIE FEAST

“A Mystery / Thriller full of intrigue and suspense.”
HORROR MOVIES AND STUFF

“Amazingly well sequenced, startling cuts and abrasive score all add
up to a taut 15 minutes of time travel intrigue …
I’d like to see what they could do with a proper budget!?”
NIGEL BUCKLAND REVIEWS

“Jonathan and Richard have crafted quite the little Fantasy/
Adventure short film!”
TWISTED CENTRAL

“Chance Encounters delivers a stark, relentless survival tale!”
CUTTING ROOM FLOOR

The theme of a “civilized” man forced to face more the more primal parts of himself  … the sci-fi spin and unique imagery makes for a fun, energetic time all-around …  an absolutely perfect length … Definitely check it out.” DAILY GRINDHOUSE

“This stylish Indie film centers around one man’s travels through time and place, or maybe just travels through his own mind … a solid overall product giving these brothers a promising future in the industry.” CINEMATIC METHOD

“The Timeslip has everything; comedy, suspense and genuine terror. One word … Brilliant.”
EREBUS HORROR

“Tension and atmosphere are expertly achieved … The Timeslip hits all the right notes … I look forward to seeing more from the Chance brothers.” PARACINEMA

“Their narrative is suspenseful and well paced holding our interest from start to finish; however, it’s not just a good story, it’s a skillfully crafted film.  Every camera shot, camera angle, and edit, has meaning, and they’re pieced together in a way that adds to the overall feel of the film.” MOVIE ANARCHIST

“Immensely watchable due to Richard’s performance and excellent cinematography … Given a decent script and a good budget I honestly believe these guys could produce something truly spectacular and am intrigued as to what their future plans hold.” CYBERSCHIZOID

“THE TIMESLIP isn’t widely available at this time. If you get the opportunity to see it in any festivals, definitely take it. This film comes with a very high recommendation. THE TIMESLIP is a terrific example of short form storytelling done correctly. The Chance Brothers really distinguish themselves with this film, and are a duo worth keeping track of for any future projects.” TRULY DISTURBING HORROR

“The Chance Bros have struck a chord with their deconstruction of modern times. Whether purposely or incidental, this little film will leave you talking for hours about the time, place and the technology we live in and use. The Timeslip is a thoroughly engaging, thought provoking sci-fi thriller that will question your existence in the world.” HORROR CULT FILMS

“What makes the Chance Brothers’ film The Timeslip different is its lack of exposition and dialogue – it simply happens without warning. It’s inherent dangers do not lie so much in paradoxes as much as in that most complex and unpredictable of variables – man himself.” HORROR NEWS NET

“The tension in the film …  We know that he is not alone but what is out there?  I am not going to spoil the film but we do get that answer.  I enjoyed in the story that the Chance Brothers takes the viewer on. Which goes to show that even with 15 minutes you can create a small world with different avenues of conclusion for the viewer.” HORROR SMORGASBORD

“On the whole, The Timeslip was an excellent short film.  It stayed on track, had an easy to follow plot, and provoked a decent amount of thought.  I give it four and a half stars out of five for imagination, practical production, and writing.” ALMOST NERDY

THE TIMESLIP AND APT. KICK OFF 2x FESTS IN 2012!

by john on Jan.10, 2012, under Pictures, SCREENINGS, The Timeslip

After a nice Christmas and New Years we say goodbye to 2011 and welcome 2012 with a bang! Chance Encounters two films doing the Festival circuit THE TIMESLIP and APT. are certainly making the rounds of the world map!

With some wins, nominations and a handful of selections our successful run of 2011 comes hurtling into the New Year – Straight off THE TIMESLIP will be appearing at the Angeleno Film Festival this month:

The Timeslip @ Angeleno Film Festival – Los Angeles, California – :

http://www.angelenofest.com/

AND next on MARCH 29TH showing here:

The Timeslip and Apt. @ Underground Horror Fest – Tulsa, Oklahoma

http://www.facebook.com/UndergroundHorrorFest?sk=info

Not a bad start to the year! More news for 2012:

The release of the best version of the debut feature The Veil will finally be released sometime this year with a ‘good’ distribution company -  something that it seems in this day and age of swindling and exploitation of the indie filmmaker is hard to find… we in hindsight live and learn and wish to bring (since the start) the best possible version available to buy.

This way comes …  Chance Encounters will bring a digital story of epic proportions called THE LAST WAR

FINALLY, more ideas for shorts and a second feature film in the pipeline! Our motto for innovation and originality is helped by your support to spread the word… As the year progresses i can’t wait to share our films with you!

by john on Oct.19, 2011, under Films, SCREENINGS, Site News, The Timeslip, Uncategorized, apt.

Last week Indiana’s very own Horror / SCI-FI Film Festival the Geek Independent Film Festival showed both Chance Brother’s The Timeslip and my very own short film Apt.

It was to my great surprise they showed both films and now … with Apt. nominated for the Delta Award at the up and coming the Festival of Fantastic films in Manchester England this Sunday (please do go if you can make it!)  it gives me great pleasure to announce The Timeslip won BEST SCI-FI at the Geek Independent Film Festival!

Richard and I are so happy that the film is being warmly received critically with reviewers and by festivals. With only 5 winning categories at the Geek Independent it makes us very proud to have been chosen as one of them.
