Journey to Planet X

de Myles Kane i Josh Koury

Synopsis

Scientists by day, filmmakers by night. That could be the best way to define Troy and Eric, two friends who combine their passion for science with an irrational attraction to fantasy, which will lead them to make their own amateur films substituting their lack of resources with enthusiasm reminiscent of the Ed Wood immortalized by Johnny Depp. Journey to Planet X captures them during the preparation of their most ambitious project, a 0 budget blockbuster, the shooting of which will highlight the irreconcilable differences between wanting to be a cinema “professional” and having it as an exciting hobby.
