FTL (Faster than light)

“A breathtakingly emotional space ride with dazzling effects and true heart”
(Starburst Magazine)

FTL (Faster Than Light), by Adam Stern, is the prelude to what this great filmmaker has in mind.

This is a breathtaking science-fiction short film, awarded at several festivals and which has received excellent reviews. It tells the adventure of an astronaut, performed by Ty Olsson —Continuum, The 100—, testing the fisrt faster-than-light spacecraft. The cast also includes Karin Konoval —The Planet of the Apes, The X-Files— and Aliyah O’Brien —Beyond, Bates Motel—.

This work, with its stunning production design and effects —by Artifex Studios Ltd.—, has left us willing for more and wishing that Stern and his team keep on with the idea of turning FTL into a feature film.

We were lucky to watch this short film when it was on its tour around science-fiction festivals and, since then, we have been anxiously waiting for this day.

 

Starburst Magazine dice de este cortometraje: “Un viaje espacial increíblemente emocional con efectos deslumbrantes y verdadero corazón”

FTL (Faster Than Light) de Adam Stern es el preludio de lo que este increíble director tiene en mente.
Un impresionante cortometraje de ciencia ficción, premiado en varios festivales de género y precedido de muy buenas críticas, que cuenta la aventura de un astronauta, interpretado por Ty Olsson (Continuum, Los 100), en el viaje de prueba de una nave experimental. Completan el reparto Karin Konoval Actor/Artist/Writer (Planeta de los simios, Expediente X) y ALIYAH O’BRIEN (Beyond, Bates Motel) en un trabajo que, arropado por un diseño de producción y efectos visuales – a cargo de Artifex Studios Ltd.– alucinantes, te deja con ganas de que Stern y su equipo sigan adelante con su plan de convertir FTL en un largometraje.

Prelude To Axanar

After the Star Wars specials, we continue in science fiction with the other great space epic “Prelude to Axanar”, directed by Christian Gossett, edited by Robert Meyer Burnett, written by Alec Peters and performed by actors like Richard Hatch (Galactica) and Tony Todd ( Candyman), among others, is a short film that advocates a crowdfunding campaign to turn it into a feature film set in the Star Trek universe. Impeccably directed and with impressive visual effects, above the usual in a short film of this type, “Prelude to Axanar” moves between the documentary format and the short film narrating some facts through interviews with its protagonists, the commanders of the Starships.

Tras los especiales de Star Wars, seguimos en la ciencia ficción con la otra gran epopeya espacial por antonomasia “Prelude to Axanar” dirigido por Robert Meyer Burnett, escrito por Alec Peters y protagonizado por conocidos actores como Richard Hatch (Galactica) y Tony Todd (Candyman) entre otros, es un cortometraje que abandera una campaña de crowdfunding para convertirlo en un largometraje ambientado en el universo Star Trek. Impecablemente dirigido y con unos impresionantes efectos visuales, por encima de lo acostumbrado en un cortometraje de este tipo, “Prelude to Axanar” se mueve entre el formato documental y el cortometraje narrando unos hechos a través de entrevistas a sus protagonistas, los comandantes de las naves estelares.
