Keep The Music Going

Written for and recorded entirely on Zoom, and starring Holly Curran (Fear the Walking Dead) and Claire Frederiksen, 'Keep the Music Going' is a story about the last two humans and their friendship, thousands of miles apart.

It’s been 734 days since the world ended and Commander Jessica Caldwell is alone on the International Space Station, playing music over the radio frequency for anyone on Earth who may have survived.

For the past 734 days, Jessica hadn’t received a response, but today, another woman is able to radio her back.
