• Check out a preview of THE RECALL VR Abduction Application experience 

Toronto, ON/Los Angeles, CA - October 26, 2017: The Recall VR Abduction app is the world's first and only in-app transactional multi format movie experience. The app teleports you to the world of The Recall, staring Wesley Snipes, and welcomes you into the exclusive media lounge where you can immerse yourself in The Recall VR Abduction, enjoy "The Making of The Recall" in a giant home theater screen, and experience the trailers in 360-degrees, Barco Escape, and Standard 2D formats.
The app contains the feature film, trailers in multiple formats, cast stills and extra exclusive behind the scenes video content in 2D format. Capable of streaming or downloading multi-format videos, this is also the first app to enable monetization of video content within the free app.

“Making a film is one challenge, but how the movie is delivered and the new technologies we can offer to make the experience more rewarding is why we are in this business,” said Kevin DeWalt, CEO of Minds Eye Entertainment.  "With this new technology, we look forward to deepening our audience's connections to our stories."
“Our goal is to give fans a chance to do more than just watch a movie. This is the first time three forms of media are all within one app for a single film. The Recall VR app gives the audience multi-content options they can choose to enjoy,” said Travis Cloyd, VR Producer. “The Recall VR app paves the way for film producers to monetize their 2D and VR content through one platform.”

Distributed by ONETOUCH, and available through the Oculus store, The Recall VR Abduction movie app is a native application powered by SELVZ OTT media player technology, supporting 2D, 3D, 180/360-degree (monoscopic/stereoscopic), and Barco Escape formats, Spatial Audio, live and on-demand. The Recall VR Abduction solution enables viewers to fully screen the in-app video experience, and stream multi format video content from major OTT platforms like YouTube, Vimeo, Kaltura and Brightcove.

Directed by Mauro Borelli, The Recall stars Wesley Snipes and Breaking Bad’s R.J. Mitte and centers on a group of friends vacationing at a remote cabin lake house.  When aliens attack Earth, the friends are forced to rely on an eccentric and mysterious hunter (Wesley Snipes) with special knowledge of the attack.
The mind bending VR short film produced by Kevin DeWalt, Danielle Masters, Travis Cloyd, Josh Courtney and Wesley Snipes puts the audience into the movie through the eyes of co-star RJ Mitte’s (Breaking Bad) character Brendan, as they battle aliens and avoid being abducted.

It allows users to follow their own curiosity, whether it's interacting with Wesley Snipes’ character the Hunter or fighting off aliens in the surreal landscape of British Columbia. “These 3 experiences all within one digital platform is the first time this has ever been done,” added Kevin DeWalt, Producer of The Recall and The Recall VR Abduction. “Our goal was to extend the users experience when watching films while utilizing new technologies that we felt will revolutionize the consumption of content.”

Review: Night of the Kings / La Nuit des Rois by Philippe Lacôte

Review: 
Night of the Kings
La Nuit des Rois
by Philippe LacôteA France, Côte d'Ivoire, Canada and Senegal co-productionNow Playing In The New York Film FestivalImageAfter Venice and the Toronto Film Festival, Philippe Lacôte's Night of the Kings has moved on to conquer New York City. A young pickpocket (Koné Bakary), is incarcerated in the giant La MACA prison, the largest in Côte d’Ivoire. The prison offers a hostile atmosphere, where the guards have long given up keeping order and the prisoners run the show, albeit confined within the prison walls. They dance, sing, and mingle at will in a common area called The Jungle. There is a violent power struggle between Lord Blackbeard (Steve Tientcheu), who runs things, and the younger leaders of other factions. Blackbeard is old and infirm, and he knows he can't hold on forever. But, he does want to hold on long enough to leave on his own terms. Blackbeard designates the newcomer as the new storyteller - the griot - called Roma…

Blues/Rock: The Cole Patenaude Band - Are You Happy Now? (Independent / 24 July 2020)

Blues/Rock:
The Cole Patenaude Band - Are You Happy Now?
(Independent / 24 July 2020) Buy the CD Big vocals and infectious grooves make up this release from The Cole Patenaude Band. It's modern blues with a classic sensibility, anchored by solid musicianship and upbeat songwriting. 
Keyboard player Dean Thiessen and Patenaude on guitar trade off solos and melodic lines to keep it interesting through a range of bluesy style, incorporating rock and country, with a pop song sheen on songs like For the Money. Would You Be Mine is more Elvis-esque rockabilly, while How To Love is an acoustic song with folky storytelling lyrics and feel. 
Compromise is a standout track, with a snarly guitar line and a churchy organ swelling underneath a nice bluesy beat. Horns aren't credited in the notes, but I swear I heard some on this and a couple of the other tracks. 
As a husband, father, and full-time mechanic based in Langley, British Columbia, finding the time to make his music was a challenge…
