Sci-Fi Legends Kickstart Space Command Franchise Online

Space Command is the first of its kind of what is likely to be a bucking trend. It is a film supported by Kickstarter, the crowdfunding site. Space Command is a series of science fiction films that detail two families’ interactions over several generations as they take part in Man’s exploration and colonization of the solar system and beyond. Stars from Deep Space 9VoyagerBuffy, Babylon 5 and more are involved along with special effects artists from Star Wars, The Avengers and Harry Potter among others.

“We are thrilled to have the support from so many of our friends in Hollywood. A number of leading writers, producers and directors in the sci-fi world are working on the project.” says producer Marc Zicree.

This sounds like an incredibly exciting project to me. I am looking forward to seeing what a Kick Starter project can produce as they have become more and more popular in the last year or so. This is clearly the future of film making as well as many other mediums in getting work out there. The film will be released on a multi format platform later this year and the campaign ends on July 14th.
