Project of the Day: 'Time Signature'

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.

“Time Signature” 

Tweetable Logline: Danielle meets her favorite guitarist, Astra, who reveals that she’s Danielle’s time traveling daughter.

Elevator Pitch: Danielle is an awkward college student with a passion for the band Vicky Lester. She wins a backstage pass to meet the band and becomes fast friends with the lead guitarist, Astra. Astra invites Danielle to go on an impromptu road trip and Danielle accepts. Alone at a rest stop Astra reveals that she’s from the future and she’s come back to change Danielle’s life.

Production Team:

Writer/Director – Sean Mannion
Director of Photography – Peter Westervelt (DP of the web series Kelsey,http://blip.tv/kelseytheseries)
Lead Actress – Kitty Ostapowicz
Lead Actress – Tara Cioletti
Supporting Actress – Hye Yun Park

About the Production: I love time travel stories. I’ve always wanted to put my own twist on one and struck on this particular idea partly inspired by the Stephen Hawking quote “the best evidence we have that time travel is not possible, and never will be, is that we have not been invaded by hordes of tourists from the future.” I thought, what if we are? What if time travelers are all around us? What if they’ve integrated into our society? What if one of them came back to change your life?

Current Status: Fundraising for production in June
