Crowdfunding for A Faithful Companion, a short film inspired by Firefly is now live!
This nonprofit (tax-deductible) project is currently being crowdfunded. Seeking funding from fans means one very important thing: We can keep it true to the fans. While explosions and gunfire can be fun, it simply can’t replace good characters and a solid story. A Faithful Companion chooses the beautiful backdrop of the Morikami Gardens in Delray Beach and the frontier town of Parrish, Florida to tell the story of Calliope and Jeremiah in this short Sci-Fi Western Romance directed by Frank Fradella and produced by Talina Adamo. Actors Katherine Diaz and Ben Paden take the leads in this project is inspired by Joss Whedon’s beloved t.v. show Firefly.
A Faithful Companion explores a world in the ‘Verse where two people have found themselves in a tough spot: they’ve found themselves in love. But what does love entail for a Companion whose career it is to satisfy the needs- far from just emotional- of others and for a man on the frontier whose ideas on life and love are simple? While the story is set 500 years in the future, life on the planet of Parrish resembles the old west: a post-war society who are just folks trying to get by every day. It’s a far world away from the technological hubs of the inner planets and that’s perfectly fine for Jeremiah, a man who lives life plainly and honestly. But when his heart skips a beat for the traveled and experienced Calliope, a Companion visiting Parrish only to see her father, things get a little complicated.
We look forward to seeing you!
