The upcoming film ‘The Astronot‘ by director Tim Cash is screening at the Hollywood Boulevard Film Festival this May 18th-20th.Β  The film received an Official Selection for Best Drama Feature by director Tim Cash & Best Screenplay & Score by screenwriter & musicianΒ Pennan Brae. The screenplay & score were written in Vancouver, BC & the film shot in Bend, Oregon. The idea for the film came during a photoshoot with Pennan & Vancouver photographer Dan Jackson. ‘I had an astronaut suit & was doing a photoshoot for an album cover; I’ve always loved space,’ comments Pennan. ‘The idea was for me to stand beneath a full moon & gaze longingly up at it.Β  Then Dan handed me an old rickety ladder to hold & the idea came of someone who longed to become an astronaut but was unable to; that was the spark for the idea’.Β  Pennan then wrote the screenplay and sent it to director Tim Cash for his thoughts. After many revisions & improvements, filming began in Central Oregon.
