Beyond the Black Rainbow (And no, it’s not about race.)

Beyond the Black Rainbow

Just checked the trailer for the new sci fi film by Panos Cosmatos called “Beyond the Black Rainbow.” Two words: beyond excited. Finally, a big bowl of what gets our juices flowing: science fiction, minimalism, 1980s, sleek lines, grimy synthesizers. The film is set in 1983: Despite being under heavy sedation, Elena tries to make her way out of Arboria, a secluded, quasi-futuristic commune.” Considering what her therapist looks like (see above), clearly she’s in big trouble. (Doesn’t hurt that the filmmaker looks a lil’ touched his damn self.) Whatever: it warms our heart to see someone doing something truly mental! Nothing like it when someone takes the time to do it right when they blow your mind. The reviews for this one are smoking — if the trailer is any sign of things to come, it’s no surprise.

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?
