      Just got my drive in the mail, very nice! has a great feel to it, and a pretty decent amount of storage left even with all the nice little bonus content! Great work guys!

      My dad saw the postcard constellation map I got & now wants a larger version (that he can read without a magnifying glass).

      Finally got around to watching it. I'm surprised you used my kickstarter username on the crew manifest instead of my real one - and I love what you did with it!

      Also, scrolling through the manifest scene a frame at a time revealed a lot of silly text that was easy to miss. So, worth going through it a frame at a time there too.

      Just watched it, very nice!
      For those who can't download: if you don't mind slightly lower quality, you can just watch it on vimeo (linked from main site)

      Tiogshi is right, the KS trailer scenes should have been included, at least partly. But I realize it's not easy with this short format. In it's current form, it is just a little to much of an art-house movie for me. Also the acting and talking of some could have been better. But the whole atmosphere is truly great. Perfect soundtrack and lights!

    11. Missing_small

      Creator John Boyd on February 8, 2013

      Hi ya! I managed to download the zip file - it came through at slightly over 1GB. But when I unzipped it, the only thing in there was the trailer. Any suggestions?

    12. Missing_small

      Creator Tiogshi Laj on February 8, 2013

      Final product: watched. A commentary with one possible small spoiler follows.

      It's lovely, but I can't help but think it feels incomplete and difficult to follow without the framing of some external materials. In particular, the "opening scene" earlier released as a trailer is not included in the movie as an opening scene, and without that scene there's no establishment of the ship's main armament as being (what I can only assume) is a spine-mounted plasma torch, and is therefore useful in the way Malleck intends.

      All in all, it's a wonderful 12 minutes of eye-candy for those of us who have a solid grounding in sci-fi tropes and in visual blink-and-you-miss-it narrative, but I'm pretty sure my wife will find this harder to follow than Primer.

      Wish it was longer, closer to the original 20-30 minutes instead of the delivered 12 plus credits, but I look forward to your next project nevertheless.

      I just used IE9 and 7-zip (rather than the built-in unzipper), and it didn't produce any errors. *fingers crossed*

    14. Me.small

      Creator Paul Kelly on February 8, 2013

      I received my download link! Just in time for pizza and a movie night at my household. 1.07 gig ZIP file came through without any trouble using Safari 6.0.2. Can't wait to watch it tonight.

    15. Missing_small

      Creator Michael Oue on February 8, 2013

      Just got my download link through Ganxy (I'm a $100 backer). I downloaded the ZIP file twice (I use Firefox 18 on Windows7), and it gave errors both times when extracting. All the files seem to be there and, so far as I can tell, nothing seems to be corrupted. Has this happened to anyone else?

    16. Missing_small

      Creator Loïc Lacombe on February 4, 2013

      Same goes for me. Could you please tell me where the "Digital HD download of the film" I'm entitled to is?
      Vimeo is a real pain to use and I'm not even sure it's the whole movie as you told about an opening scene available on VImeo.

    17. Me.small

      Creator Paul Kelly on February 3, 2013

      Has anybody received a download link? I have not. I really want to watch the download file not the Vimeo feed.

      Creator Nathaniel Sheppard on February 2, 2013

      Any way to get a screenplay? Specifically the voicover at the start that talks about the war. I can't quite make out what they are saying in the beginning and end of it as it fades in and out.

      Also, how did she unlock the gun without launch codes? Did she already have them?

      Well done, it all fits together as professional and entertaining result. Would love to see your next project.

      Creator Dennis Baum on January 29, 2013

      Damn, nice work! I really like it. Seriously, I think it's great. It's got a super old-school feel to it, which I think is charming... and maybe I'm a huge science sap, but I even got a little chocked up.

      I know everyone is probably busy with the holidays, but I was wondering what was happening? It's been a long time since we've heard anything and I'd love to know where this film stands. Perhaps it's time for an update.

      Any cutting room scraps or bloopers to share? It's like, man, I'm jonesin' for a fix. Just a taste. The prior posted pixels just don't work for me like they used to. I need something stronger, fresher. Anything will do!

      Creator Derek Van Gorder and Otto Stockmeier on September 11, 2012

      Thanks Dustin! Because of ship delays our release date has been hard to determine, but that seems to finally be moving forward and we are hoping to release end of October beginning of November. We've been talking with a few festivals but we'll pursue that more as soon as we know when the film will be done.

    26. Picture%209a.small

      Creator Dustin Lee on September 10, 2012

      Everything is looking great with "C." I've been following this project since last year and am very excited to see the final result. Do you guys have a ballpark release date planned yet? Have you submitted rough cuts to festivals for 2013?

    27. Missing_small

      Creator Martin Hjort Eriksen on August 9, 2012

      There hasn't been an update in over a month, and I am very curious to know where you are in the process.

      Creator Dale Wesley on June 13, 2012

      It's been a while since we have heard anything. I know the entire editing process is very difficult and I certainly don't want it rushed, but an update would be much appreciated. I'd love some more photos, maybe a teaser of some kind. What about the ship; how does she look?

    29. Missing_small

      Creator Daniel Yankowsky on May 25, 2012

      Congratulations. You guys are the very first Kickstarter film project that has ever convinced me to pledge, and I am excited to see the result. As someone who has written and produced a sci-fi short many years ago, you are in for a challenging but I can predict very creatively rewarding journey into the new year.

      Creator Dennis Brown on December 20, 2011

      Cool, I get to be backer #1000. IMHO, good SciFi is not about the big budgets, it is about the big ideas. Good acting and film execution takes talent to enhance the story. I am really looking forward to the show and wish you all the highest success with it and more to come.

      The music is so captivating and optimistic :) I am so happy to find this project to be my first I backed and can't wait to see the results. I hope enough surplus is collected to upgrade the ship.

    46. Oand.small

      Creator Derek Van Gorder and Otto Stockmeier on December 13, 2011

      Hey Ron, so far we've used three cameras, the Canon 5D Mk II for the main narrative, an Eclair ACL (16mm) for the "Beyond the Infinite" show, and a Beaulieu 4008 ZM II (Super 8) for the NASA-style footage of the asteroid.

      The 5D Mk II has been very useful with its low-light capability, though it does have a lot of issues. In a perfect world, we would love to get our hands on the new Canon C300, but it may be outside our budget.

      As for the music, hold tight, we'll be making an announcement in regards to that soon!

      The finished short should be between 20 and 30 minutes long.
