This short film was my way of balancing years of what felt like very commercial work. What better way to correct that path than to make an utterly non-commercial, pseudo-philosophical stew of sci-fi and Buddhism? It may be slow but that’s because it’s deeeeeep. And I loved making it. John Knoll from ILM built the awesome CGI spaceship—I will forever be in his debt. But the “space leap” shot? All real, and performed by actor Maury Sterling with absolutely no production insurance.
Shot by Robert F. Smith and starring the excellent Austin Highsmith.
