Skywatch

Skywatch is a sci-fi proof of concept short that takes place in a future defined by immediacy and convenience. Two enterprising teenagers find a way to hack into the infrastructure of NexPort, a delivery system that transports goods directly into the home.  As they reroute orders zipping through the sky, our protagonists set off a chaotic series of events and soon find themselves targeted by the corporation.

The film stars Uriah Shelton (The Glades, Warrior’s Gate, Girl Meets World) and Zach Callison (Steven Universe, Mr. Peabody & Sherman), and is currently in Post-Production.

In early 2017, we launched a finishing-funds Kickstarter and raised over $50,000 – from 490 generous backers across the world. We aim to finish the film in the first half of 2018.

The Feature

While we hope the short stands alone as a fun and gripping piece of entertainment, this project is intended as a proof of concept for a mid-budget live-action feature. Our goal is to build a world, set a tone, and introduce characters that could form the foundation of a compelling feature film.

Over the past two years I have been collaborating closely with a writing partner to craft the feature screenplay, which I'm very excited about!
