A Scientist Plays With Magic in Fun Sci-Fi Short Film The Adept

The first time I saw "The Adept" was at the FilmQuest Film Festival last year. That short is now available to watch online, and what I love about it is that it plays with both magic and sci-fi, which are two things that I’m really into. The short film was written and directed by Adam Stern for Artifex Studios and this is the brief synopsis:

A scientist with a passion for magic gets more than he bargains for when performing a new card trick.The Adept is a sci-fi short that explores the connections between science, magic, and our understanding of reality.

This is a really well-made film, and I thought the concept was wonderfully executed. I think you’ll all enjoy what this film has to offer, so make sure to check it out when you get a chance!

'Stargate' Roars at Canada's Leo Awards

With so much fuss being made about J.J. Abrams Star Trek reboot, it's easy to forget that there is another successful franchise out there with Star... in the title. That would be Stargate, which is due for its own sort of makeover later this year with the premiere of Stargate Universe. This is no sign that the concept is struggling, though. Indeed, the slew of awards that Stargate productions won at the recent Leo Awards in Vancouver, British Columbia (the home base of CinemaSpy) shows that it continues to be admired.

The Leo Awards are presented by the Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Foundation of B.C.. They were established in 1998 to celebrate excellence in film and television productions that are made in the province. Stargate series and movies are largely filmed in Vancouver.
