Those who know me well have heard me mumble about a “Mars Project” over the past few years. I was slowly and carefully outlining a massive production that would follow the first manned mission to Mars. I had the project well detailed, having done my research (I watched something like 80+ documentaries, films, and TV shows and read countless books and articles on the topic of space exploration) and talked it through with a lot of people much more experienced in Space matters than I. I was carefully building a network of contacts, advisers, and allies to help actually put this idea into production, and it was really starting to get some movement. Then this happened:
Yeah. Those who have heard my pitch can agree, Mars One is almost verbatim what I was going to make, only they want to do it for real. Real trip to Mars trumps fake every single time. So, for now at least, I’m putting my idea down. So what does this mean?
It means that I need a next ‘big project’ to focus on. As luck would have it, I’ve dug up an old story that I wanted to tell before Mars took all my focus, so I have decided to re-visit it. I intend to update this site with posts about the project as it develops, for now here is the very basic gist of what we are going to be making:
A short film about two men stuck in space on a mission that doesn’t officially exist.
We are cranking on the story and prep already, more to come soon!
