Some of you may be wondering: What ever happened to that sci-fi short film? Well, I’m here to tell you that Roxë15 is, indeed, alive and well.

Ohio-based editor Chris Croft and I have been working hard for the past several weeks….and (thank God!) the light at the end of the tunnel is getting closer and closer. I have had the great pleasure of editing sound effects (call me geeky or whatever, but I happen to LOVE editing audio). Anyhoo, the final pieces are coming into place. It has taken a while but as they say, good things come to those who wait — so stay tuned.

Also, I’m extremely excited and honored to announce that the feature-length screenplay of Roxë15 was recently selected to be a part of cultivEight, a national film development program sponsored by NEA Art Works! cultivEight is produced by PushPush Film and Theater in Atlanta, in partnership with BrandCinema in NYC and producer Alexander A. Motlagh. It’s an innovative, hands-on, filmmaker-centered incubator that develops out-of-the-box film projects over 8 months.  The object is to thoroughly and thoughtfully develop projects, connect filmmakers with producers and get projects into (what?) PRODUCTION!

Feeling extremely thankful/grateful that both the long and short of Roxë15 are moving in the right direction…..ever forward!

Welcome to a new frontier: Godspeed

Well, hello there and welcome to the wonderful world of Godspeed.

Godspeed is a new breed of science fiction feature film that is now in development. Please join us on the exciting journey to putting to this very special film on the big screen.

Godspeed is a near-future story that pushes us to consider the notion that we are not alone in the cosmos.  The growing number of new star systems and planets being discovered every day suggest that this is more than a remote possibility. What if contact with other intelligent life is nothing like we expect? 

This project also challenges us to think about film in a fresh way, without the baggage of meaningless categories and divisions that get in the way of character, story, talent and the art of cinema.

On this adventure in independent filmmaking, we’ll explore the movies, the cosmos, the things & people that make our world special and SO much more…..there’s a whole universe ahead of us.

Are you ready?
