Member Film Update: Slow Bleed

July 19, 2011 § 1 Comment

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.”
