OFFWORLD UPDATE JULY 11th 2017

Co-writer, co-director, all co-p. Terry Cooper has an update for us, and what an update it is! Firstly, have a premier date (also known as “The New and Terrifying Deadline which Must Not be Missed”)! Currently we are still in post, but CG work is underway and, having seen the Continue Reading

The bridge set from Offworld, our beloved Tantalus II, has been sold. Huge, huge thanks to everyone who bid – we reached our target of £300, which means much needed funds for the project and the promised donation to Macmillan Cancer Support.

With the cockpit/bridge shots behind us, the dauntless Team Offworld find ourselves in possession of a rather swanky looking spaceship set. And, a bit like when Han lost the Falcon to Lando, it can be yours. We’ve made no secret of the fact that making a film is expensive and even with our Continue Reading

Aimee Hibbard from Sticky Ink Studios has delivered some fantastic cast photos for Offworld. If you’re following us on Facebook then you will already have seen them but, for those who aren’t… here they are.

There’s a retro vibe to the ship interior that I absolutely love and I think anyone watching would be hard-pressed to say that anything looks “low budget”. There’s a layer of CG and post-processing to go on yet as well, lighting up screens and consoles and obviously putting the all-important space field outside the windows.

The Tantatlus II looks almost too good to crash. But crash she will…

We built a spaceship!

Today the first scenes from my first ever feature film will be shot. Today it feels official – I am a screen writer. Actually, I’ve been there before. Today, I’m a feature film screen writer. Big. Boy. Pants.
