Space Station Humanity Feature Script

Last night I finished the first draft of the Space Station Humanity feature film script. It came to a total of 98 pages, but I am sure with editing and additional character enhancements that it will only grow. The first draft is the first step and I am very excited about where the project is going.

Editing Process

So it has been a long editing process but we picture lock next Wednesday!!! Crazy!

We have been receiving so much tremendous feedback and I cannot wait to get the FX and music in!

Our great composer Miles Bergsma started sending mock ups and they sound awesome!

We also casted the Attendant, Kelly Noonan, and shot last Sunday. Kelly was so wonderful!

Starting Director's Cut

I am back in Orange to work on the Director's cut and to also oversee the beginning of the special fx! We will most likely be doing ADR in the next couple weeks. Miles Bergsma, our amazing composer, has started the music and I can't wait to give him a new cut and hear what he is stirring up!

Wonderful news! SS: Humanity was offered the Panagrant through Panavision. This is a prestigious honor! Thanks to every one's hard work. Our D.P. Kyle did a wonderful job putting the pitch together! On another note, we pitched our idea to Kodak and are receiving some free film!
