I'll have to do it from the laptop as this is crashed by videos.

So is it 'proper' sf or horror? I know it can be both but you know what I mean.

Is the script/screenplay complete or are you still working on it?

It is not horror. It is a psychological thriller about ESP and the space program, which probably tells you too much!

It was intriguing but not exactly clear. Is that the effect you were aiming for?

I think the director Lesley Manning (Ghostwatch) did a mood piece really, to go with the script when people read it. The "test footage" was also literally that: to experiment with ways to convey weightlessness, and try certain effects shots, to convey what could be achieved on a lowish budget. It is an edit of a longer set of scenes which was shot with development money.

Well, if it's any help (and I'm pretty sure it's not) I was convinced by the weightless footage in the clips. I especially like the grainy shot - reminds me of the footage they put on the news from the space shuttles. It's got me intrigued, and I'm looking forwards to seeing more. The whole thing has a reassuringly 'Independent' feel to it, which should be a pleasant feel from the slick American fair we're all having to get used to.
