Two uncorrected screengrabs from a music video recently shot by David Torcivia for Athens based director Brett Vaughn and band Pacific UV.
A lone astronaut on an endurance mission is forced to cope with an intrusive force which threatens to derail the operation.
During the space race of the 1960’s, the Soviets and Americans were at each other’s throats, vying for a foothold in galactic exploration. Simultaneous to the superpower’s struggle, a wealthy eccentric by the name of Arthur Whitman set out to search for his own stellar glory. His self-financed voyage would see him try to break the record for the longest single-manned space mission, and remain in orbit for 1 week.
This is a story of one man’s struggle against the forces of nature, and the more powerful forces that lay within his own psyche.

Takashi Doscher - Director Spotlights
It has been an exciting week for one of our members, director and writer Takashi Doscher.
This week he was interviewed and showcased by two different blogs for his work in narrative and documentary film.
He was named as an “Athletic Capital Hero” for his accomplishments on the slopes of Kilimanjaro this January. As Dan Adams writes-
I had the special pleasure of working with Takashi Doscher on Mission Kilimanjaro this past January and was very impressed with his ability to confront adversity. For 10 grueling days, Takashi climbed alongside our team while carrying a tremendous amount of camera equipment and burying the responsibility of capturing the MK story. Despite having no climbing experience, he never once complained and demonstrated the power of his mindset in bringing any vision to reality! Takashi leads by example, are you? Be Your Own Hero!
