The Astronot Has Already Been Winning Awards on the Film Festival Circuit
VANCOUVER, CANADA, April 5, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Filmmaker & singer-songwriter Pennan Brae has officially released the trailer for his upcoming film, The Astronot. Currently on the film festival circuit, the feature film is a drama set during the 1960’s space race, in which Brae wrote, scored, starred and co-produced.
The film follows Daniel McKovsky, a young man who lost both his parents at a young age and whose only solace is in his fascination with space travel and the cosmos beyond. Then one day at the age of 30, he meets outgoing postal worker, Sandy. This new inclusion into his otherwise lonely existence forces Daniel to confront his darkest fears of loss and emptiness and will lead him towards becoming, The Astronot.
The Astronot was filmed in rural Oregon (USA), using local (OR) cast and crew, including director, Tim Cash (Far From Earth Films). The Astronot has already won accolades at various international film festivals in the USA, UK & Europe including Best Actor (Pennan Brae), Best Score (Pennan Brae) and Best Trailer.
“The spark for 'The Astronot' came while I was wearing an astronaut suit during a photoshoot. I thought, 'what if someone wanted to become an astronaut, but was unable for some reason?' And the story unfolded from there.” – Pennan Brae
Also a musician, Pennan Brae’s upcoming album (also called, The Astronot), features 11 songs that serve as the film’s soundtrack. The first single, “Walk With Me” was already released to radio in the UK, Canada & Europe and received airplay on over 200 stations. The album was recorded at Blue Light Studio in Vancouver with Producer Kaj Falch-Nielsen, with additional sessions taking place in Los Angeles with composer/producer, Eric Alexandrakis, and renowned drummer, Steve Ferrone and INXS bassist, Garry Gary Beers. The next single, “Crashland” will be released in conjunction with the film and the album later this year.
