I’ve been watching your production for a almost as long as you’ve been at it, and I just wanted to congratulate you on the amazing and inspiring work. You have shown that anything’s possible when you’re determined and creative, no matter where you live. You’re my heroes!
Thank you all for the nice comments!
Just wanted to post the new diary from our latest trip to USA. We went there for the LA shorts film festival where we ended up winning the best SCI-FI award which is pretty cool!
While in LA I managed to get in touch with some AMAZING people who invited us to their studios or homes: Alec Gillis from Studio ADI, model maker Bill George, and even the legendary Skotak brothers. Totally mindblowing stuff! We heard awesome stories and saw some beautiful pieces of movie history at their studios. Unfortunately we couldn't film our evening with the Skotaks, but you can see the segments with Alec and Bill in the doc:
Slice also won the best VFX award at the SciFi Film Festival in Sydney, and will be shown at these festivals in the next couple of months (perhaps somebody is close):
Sitges Film Festival, Spain
Sapporo International Short Film Festival , Japan
Berlin Sci-fi Filmfest , Germany
Show Me Shorts Film Festival, New Zealand
That's the updates for now!
(P.S. Do these laurels look cool or what, haahha )
I'm back with a new update, and it's the one we've all been waiting for the last five years! THE FILM IS FINISHED AND I CAN FINALLY SHOW IT TO YOU GUYS!
In recent months we've also been filming some making-of documentaries that we promised to backers on Kickstarter, and we wanted to finish it all in time to send out for Christmas.
I made the first ever post about the film here on RPF five years ago, and I wanna thank you guys for following the whole process. It was a huge school for us and we learned a great deal about many aspects of filmmaking! Thank you all for your support!
OK here we go:
"SLICE OF LIFE" ----- director's cut version of the movie as it was always meant to be seen!
“SLICE OF LIFE: Filmmakers in Flying Cars Drinking Beer” ----- as the title suggests, in this unprecedented 30-minute documentary, filmmakers are drinking beer in a flying car and reminiscent on the wonderful days of production of "Slice of Life"!

I hope you will enjoy the film and documentaries, and I'll see you in the new year!!
Happy Holidays everyone!!!
I have never watched Blade Runner, so I can't comment on that kind of thing, but the visuals are OUTSTANDING. I am a professional VFX artist, and I'm super impressed. I do CGI for a living, but I LOOOVEEE miniature effects. It was such a pleasure to see them in their final form. So beautiful.
