Director Statement

There's always a special place in my heart for the sci-fi of yesteryear, the handmade look of the original Star Trek episodes and Land Of The Lost. I've always wanted to try my hand at a film that blends practical effects techniques from the past with modern VFX technology to create something fun, charming, and new. While in quarantine from COVID-19, my imagination took off, and I hired the closest actor I could find: my 7-month old puppy named Kirby.
