    INDIE REVIEW RADIO/ CYBEL MARTIN / INDIE FILM

    in Entertainment

    Cybel is the first and only African American woman to receive an MFA in Cinematography from NYU.

Her feature work has included “Flora’s Garment Bursting into Bloom”, winner of the Showtime “No Limits” Award at the New Festival, addtl photography for the Slamdance Grand Jury Winner “On The Outs,” the criminal dramas “Dregs of Society” and “No Problem.” She has also been fortunate to team up with notable performance artists, most recently shooting “Forget Me Not” for artist Zach Fabri, commissioned by the Studio Museum of Harlem. She received considerable recognition for her work on “The Gilded Six Bits”. This 1920′s period piece set in the rural south and based on a Zora Neale Hurston story, won the Hollywood Black Film Festival Jury Award and special screenings at The Library of Congress, The Smithsonian and Museum of Natural History. The film featured Wendell Pierce (“The Wire”, “Treme”) and Chad Coleman (“The Walking Dead”).  Cybel has contributed to numerous documentaries, notably Lucy Walker’s “The Crash Reel”, “Inside: The New Black Panther Party” for National Geographic, ”11 Days” dir by Dan Metcalf and prod by Mark Burnett and the Tribeca Film Festival “All Access Award” winner, “Dressed Like Kings”.

    in Indie Music

    Even though they haven't had their debut release yet, you can already tell that the indie-rock group The Fantasy Echoes is too damn fun. From the first notes of their demo "Battle Cry", you're already tapping your toes, bobbing your head, and wanting to sing along with lead singer Austin and the rockin' vocals emanating from his throat.


    This week Steven Rouk talks with guitarist and song-writer Ryan to hear the stories behind the infectious tunes and to get the scoop on what the band's plans are for the future.

    Indie Books Show #66 (Mary Barr)

    in Books

    Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guest. 
    Author Mary Barr joins me this week to talk about her books.  We'll discuss her novellas, novels & juvenile fiction titles.
    From her novella The Publisher:
    Each day with trust and good faith we send our beloved children off to school. We assume they arrive safely, enjoy time with their friends and learn their lessons. We think we know where they are and who they’re with. But life can change in a heartbeat, so can circumstances, places and people and, as a result we never remain the same. Change is often good, sometimes bad, but always constant. The Publisher takes you into the lives of the Smelt family. Joe, Suzanne and their two children, six year old Libby and thirteen year old Connor.
    It is a normal school day just like any other, until Joe – the publisher – begins reading a manuscripts. In the manuscript he learns that his children are not at school. They have been kidnapped and are being held hostage until the ransom is paid. Each detail of what he must do is precisely laid out as another page of the manuscript unfolds. Suzanne has done someone wrong and, if she can right the situation her children will go free, if not, they will die. And so, they sit and wait for the knock on the door and the next installment of the manuscript that holds within its pages their children’s fate.

    Indie Books Show #65 (Gary Reilly)

    in Books

    Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guests.
    This week, I'll be doing my first posthumous interview.  No, I won't be speaking to the author from the other side (that's another blogtalk radio category).  I will be interviewing two gentlemen who knew Gary Reilly very well in life and were given the approval to seek publication for his books after his death.
    When he was alive, Gary Reilly devoted his life to perfecting his writing - not seeking agent or publishers. He posthumously gave his books into the hands of Mike Keefe, a retired political cartoonist and Pulitzer Prize winner, and Mark Stevens, a former journalist and acclaimed author in Colorado, for publishing. 
    Of the first five titles – “The Asphalt Warrior,” “Ticket to Hollywood,” “The Heart of Darkness Club,” “Home for the Holidays” and “Doctor Lovebeads” – two hit No. 1 on the Denver area bestsellers list and two have been nominated for the Colorado Book Award.
    Tune in Friday at11AM EST or listen to the archive.
