New Project Announcement – “RELATIVITY”…

Posted by Rick Burnett on March 4th, 2009 filed in Relativity

It’s finally time to let the proverbial cat out of the bag and announce my newest project, RELATIVITY

The concept for this film started literally 15 to 16 years ago and I’ve tucked the story away in my mind for a long time.  Up late one night playing around with some script ideas, I suddenly remembered most of this story and started excitedly typing away.  One night later I had finished my first draft.  I spent another night talking over some of the plot points with my good friend Brian Lee and then finished the second draft a day later after he helped me work out some of the finer details I was wrestling with now I had committed the ideas to paper.

This is a short film, topping out at maybe 30 minutes maximum, but dripping with hard core science fiction and deep psychological winding intricacies intended to provoke thought and imagination.  It should come as no surprise being influenced by the works of David Lynch, Guillermo del Toro, Alfonso Cuaron, Douglas Trimbull, David Bruckner, Dan Bush, Jacob Gentry, Alex Proyas, Ridley Scott, James Cameron, George Lucas, Joseph Kosinski, Bryan Singer, Thea Alexander (author), Wachowski Brothers, Paul Anderson, Terry Gilliam, Luc Besson, Lex Gigeroff and Isaac Asimov (author).  And these are just the main influences that have written/directed something with a particular element that heavily influenced part of my thinking over the years.

For this film I am taking on the roles of producer, writer, 2nd director, composer, and all things sound.  In addition Micah Moore is the Director of Photography and 1st director of the film.  Since we are still in the story-boarding and planning stages for the major details of the film, I can say that Blake Faucette, Andy Coon, James Clark and Christine Poindexter have signed on for the film as well at this time.  Their roles in the production will solidify as we get closer to auditions and such.

For me, this project is a both a culmination of applying all the things I have learned over the last few years with the absolute thrill of taking this story to visual representation.  I cannot express how excited I am to be working with the people I am on this project and to see this through to the end.  Everyone wants to give this 110% and show just what we are capable of doing with a film that is deep, relevant, and just intellectually stimulating and beautiful on many levels.  Don’t get me wrong, I love big dumb fun films and would work on those sorts of projects in a heart beat,  I just miss some of the deeper thought provoking story lines that when the film is done, you sit there and just think about it for a little bit.  Like the first time I saw ‘Pi’ or ‘Naked Lunch’ or even ‘Bladerunner’.  No, this film is not those films, it is a short, but I hope I can capture a glimmer of our imaginations and present it to you in a way that is interesting on some level in maybe ways that we didn’t even anticipate.  Anyways, there you have it!
