At SCI-FI-LONDON 10 we screened Pierce’s documentary SENSE OF SCALE which looked at miniatures and practical FX in the movies.
Now he is back with a brand new space movie full of practical effects from artists who worked on films such as MOON, BLAKE’S 7, CLOSE ENCOUNTERS and STAR TREK. It is so good to see models and clever miniature work back on the big screen.
Adventurados is a road movie in space that follows the misadventures of two out of luck Irish shuttle pilots flying their last mission from the Moon to Earth before retiring. Unusually, their employers have sent a mysterious woman along to keep an eye on them, and the important cargo they are transporting.
A mish-mash of strange folk are after the cargo, and will do anything to get it. Of course, things go from bad to worse for the luckless pilots.
Think WITHN ALL & I in space or an uncensored Red Dwarf – very sweary!
