Try Out for “Space Command”

posted by Nell Minow

The producers of Space Command have launched a worldwide talent search for lead actors in their groundbreaking grassroots film series.

Sci-fi luminaries Marc Zicree (Star Trek, The Twilight Zone, Babylon 5) and Doug Drexler (Star Trek: Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Battlestar Galactica) are teaming up with author Michael Reaves (Star Wars) and director Neil Johnson (Humanity’s End) to create a new way of funding and distributing Science Fiction epics. SPACE COMMAND will be a series of new and original feature films.  Among their supporters are author Neil Gaiman and “Buffy The Vampire Slayer’s” Amber Benson.  It is a groundbreaking new grassroots project that uses the internet to inspire fans to take ownership of the sci-fi genre in almost every way. In just two weeks the project has raised $135,000.

Inspired by classic science fiction TV & Film of the 1950s, this dream team is set to bring to life “Bold Adventures in the Far Reaches of Space.”  From now through July, 2012, these highly skilled and experienced filmmakers are going straight to the fans for funding to support the project.  Fans who contribute to SPACE COMMAND’s Kickstarter campaign are eligible to receive exclusive rewards in exchange for individual pledges ranging from $5 to $10,000. Contributions of $5000 or greater include rewards of Associate Producer Credit and even an Appearance in the Film.
