WHAT IS ENDLESS NIGHT?
Endless Night is an Emerson College BFA thesis film. It is the result of a shared love of science fiction and the desire to create something that hasn't been seen before. It’s a film about an astronaut living in extreme isolation on a many year long journey to another world. With only the ship’s AI for companionship he slips inside his own head and his psychological state becomes his physical reality.
WHERE THE FUNDS ARE GOING
The largest portion of our funding goes towards the design and construction of this project’s props, costumes, and set. Other expense categories include keeping our crew well fed and comfortable, providing equipment for the production process, and location fees.
We're asking for $6,000, but that's just the bare minimum we need to finish this film. If we exceed our funding goal, we will be able to increase the production values of our final sequences.
Endless Night was inevitable. It is the result of a life-long obsession with science fiction meeting with several years experience writing and directing short films. With this project I seek to further develop my own voice as a filmmaker by letting my ambitions run wild.
I see Endless Night less as a conventional narrative than a sensory experience, a textural foray into the otherworldly. While there are plenty of movies about future technology and man’s adventures on other planets, there are much fewer films that explore the ways in which these things affect the individual. My goal with this project is to create an intimate portrait of man’s life among the stars.

Risks and challenges
One of the biggest challenges we're facing right now are the special effects. We are all hugely influenced by classic science fiction, and we wanted to re-create the feel of those films with our own project. That is why we want to make our special effects using practical solutions as much as possible. We've done a lot of research into how other films created the illusions of space and other wolds, and we're attempting to base our work off these mostly analog techniques. We intend on using practicals (models, etc.) in conjunction with state of the art compositing software (and some very minimal cgi) to create stunning and convincing special effects on a tight budget.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
