It’s a brave new world for “The Phoenix Project.”
Whidbey Island native, Orson Ossman and his production company “The Ironwood Gang,” have rented the Clyde Theatre in Langley for a screening of their new feature film, “The Phoenix Project.” The Gang invites its Kickstarter supporters and any friends, family, or community members who are curious to see it in a movie theatre to finally come and watch the finished film.
“The Phoenix Project” is a psychological sci-fi drama; a story that explores the motivations and ethical boundaries of the human mind. The narrative follows four scientists who try to reanimate deceased organisms, while dealing with the internal balance of ethics, logic, emotion and ingenuity.
Using RED camera technology and professional coloring and sound design, the Ironwood Gang has devoted the past two years to producing the highest quality, independent, feature-length film to their capabilities; they hope to take it to film festivals in the next year.
“This screening will give a lot of our Kickstarter backers a chance to see the film they helped fund on a big screen,” Ossman said.
“And that’s makes us, the Ironwood Gang, extremely happy and proud. We made this film for people to watch and we made it to be watched on a big screen,” he added. Ossman both produced and acted in the film.
The screening will be at 1 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 25. There will be a Q&A afterwards attended by the filmmakers. Tickets are $7 for adults; $5 for 17 and younger. Kickstarter backers who donated $20 or more get in free.
