A thirty minute sci-fi drama produced as an Emerson College B.F.A. Thesis Film
"Moriah" is a thirty-minute sci-fi drama following Engineering Specialist John Patterson and Medical Officer Natalia Portugikov as they struggle with family memories and difficult choices. In the film, John, the designer and engineer of the spaceship, Moriah, makes the impossible decision to sacrifice everything that has profound personal meaning in his own life to save humanity from environmental devastation. After choosing duty over family and abandoning his wife and unborn child, John boards the ship heading thirty years away from earth to bring a bio engineered ecosystem to another planet. Through John’s journey in space and his relationship with fellow crew member, Natalia, he learns that humanity's survival must start with valuing those closest to us.
Without hesitation, "Moriah" has been one of the best learning experiences of our lives. We brought together an exceptionally creative, talented and dedicated company of young people to successfully produce something that everyone said was impossible. Miraculously, we successfully went into space on a student film budget and returned home to tell the tale for crying out loud!
We are in the final stages of post-production and we are reaching out to ask for help to put vital finishing touches on this very worth while project. Pledged dollars will go to hard drives, distribution funds and festival entry fees.
Please help us finish this project and support the work of young film makers everywhere!
