This is a short science-fiction online film by
Derek Van Gorder and Otto Stockmeier. I was part of a four-man team
the 5-foot long Kestros spaceship miniature.
What is impressive about the making of this film––and
what made me want to be a part of it––was that no CGI
or greenscreen was used in the making of it; all the sets and props
built by hand and filmed in-camera. Combining new advances in digital
camera technology with traditional special effects, they sought to
create a unique, timeless look through lighting design, camera tricks,
photography, split-screen, and stop-animation. This approach allowed
the filmmakers greater creative possibilities on a low-budget science-fiction
Film release date: January 28, 2013.
