Director Statement

In loving memory of Zana Alexander Gentle. Austin and I both grew up with a love for all things film. They were an escape from everyday life, but they also let you put yourself in someone else's shoes and go on their journey with them. And the really good ones teach you a thing or two about life, and hopefully yourself. Galileo is a combination of a love for science fiction and a strained father/son relationship and how daring to dream is what connected the two from the minute Galileo was born. The original script was written six years ago and we saved up ever check we got from freelance work outside our day jobs to network and meet cast and crew to make this short film go from a dream to reality.
