The Starmind Record Sci-Fi Web Series
Sci-Fi Web Series The Starmind Record Invades Los Angeles Festivals. New Web Series Flexes Dramatic Muscle Accepting Invitations to Compete in Festival Circuit.
8 Sided Films announces the selection of their groundbreaking science-fiction web series, THE STARMIND RECORD for in-competition screening at the 2012 Los Angeles Web Series Festival. This follows a press release recognizing THE STARMIND RECORD as an official selection of the Hollyweb Festival one week earlier. In an internet culture obsessed with new storytelling conventions, THE STARMIND RECORD's lean, dramatic approach stands out.
Series creator Tennyson E. Stead describes THE STARMIND RECORD as the story of two documentary filmmakers from Los Angeles who discover and investigate the presence of an extra-terrestrial intelligence.
"Great performance boils down to giving an actor something to do that's so important, it's all-consuming," Stead said. "Then you deny them the resources to fulfill that mission at every turn. THE STARMIND RECORD is about stripping everything away but the conflict, because that's what makes a great story," he continued.
With an ensemble of classically trained actors, a handful of production collaborators, and nearly a decade of film finance experience, Stead has embraced stage repertory as a model for 8 Sided Films. "Making a web series allowed us to communicate with our audience without apologizing for budget. Folks in Hollywood forget this, but audience is the other half of the equation. There is no movie unless people are there to see it."
"People see that we're weaseling our way into movie theaters. They look at our audience and they say ‘Oh, that's how they do it.' No, you guys. That's why we do it."
Cast members include Gerard Marzilli (Criminal Minds, Dead in Love), Charlotte Gallagher (Unusual Suspects, Ripped Memories), and Matthew David McCallum, with guest star appearances from Ray Auxais (Parenthood, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Cesar Ramos (Sideways), and Lon Haber (Entourage, Brüno, Passions).
Tennyson E. Stead's most recent credits include screenwriting duties on thriller XII, now in release from Unified Pictures.
Currently Stead and 8 Sided Films are in pre-production on sci-fi heist movie Quantum Theory, slated for production at the end of 2012. Quantum Theory stars actor and internet celebrity America Young, star of the Los Angeles stage Danielle K. Jones, and other members of the 8 Sided ensemble.
