Private Project

We Can Voyage There

Tonight, Project Revelations announces whether or not life exists outside of Earth. Eager to hear the results are Chloe, a young high schooler who can't help but look beyond, and her mom Deb, who once was on her way to getting an advanced degree in space studies but now works at Gizmo's Electronics. Told through the shifting fantasies of Chloe's mind while stuck at home during the height of a pandemic, the question looms: Could this be all there is?

Director Statement

Originally adapted from a short story by David Lerner Schwartz, "We Can Voyage There" was set to start production in April 2020. Naturally, we had to postpone. Being that this film is centered around isolation and longing, it ultimately helped to enhance these themes by reimagining it to be set in a Covid-ajacent world. This film explores the yearning for more while understanding that what we have may just be perfect.
