Project of the Day: ‘Sky Line’

Project of the Day: 'Sky Line'

Here’s your daily dose of an indie film in progress — at the end of the week, you’ll have the chance to vote for your favorite.

In the meantime: Is this a movie you’d want to see? Tell us in the comments.

Sky Line

Tweetable Logline: In 1979, Arthur C. Clarke wrote a novel about an elevator to space. This is the story of the people who intend to build it.

Elevator Pitch: Driven by mankind’s inherent urge to explore, and often by a desire to make the world a better place, a group of scientists and entrepreneurs endeavor to build an elevator to space. From attending various scientific gatherings, to covering NASA’s high-stakes Space Elevator Games, we got to know the major players and watch their successes and struggles, both personal and professional. What happens when egos and passions collide?

Production Team: 
Jonny Leahan – Director
Miguel Drake-McLaughlin – Director
Robert Wood – Executive Producer
Chris Guido – Editor

About the film: When we heard about this idea nearly a decade ago, it really inspired us, so about 5 years ago we started filming the key players… but to us it’s really a film about the transition between something being a sci-fi dream and people trying making it a reality — it’s about that mysterious thing that happens in between.

Current Status: In post-production.
