"The Flying Rock" Will Fly in 3D

The Flying Rock” is a somehow different TV-series: all events happen in one room: a bar on top of an asteroid. It’s a model-scale blockbuster! “Firefly” meets “Cowboy Bebop” and “Blade Runner”. The French 3D stereoscopic mini-series is concluding positively its crowdfunding campaign on MyMajorCompany. The opportunity to become a co-producer stays open up to December 9, 2014.

A 10-epsodes series

The Flying Rock” is a science-fiction series of 10 episodes. Everything happens in a bar, on top of an asteroid. You know that image of the 1950’s diner nested on top of an asteroid, drifting in space – that’s a science-fiction classic. But... actually, there are no movies, nor TV-series about that bar! Too bad - I really would like to go up there and have a drink, just to see who’s hanging out in a place like this…

The Flying Rock is a French project (English subtitles will be available), and the French do have a tradition of high-quality cinema on a budget, with amazing actors and an original way to handle the graphic part. But French cinema is usually unable to handle science-fiction properly, mainly because of budget. Here, the idea is to solve the budget problem by using only one set and very few CGI FX – we will concentrate on characters, action, dialogues… the story! The idea is “by being smart and keeping things small and simple, let’s make make a science-fiction TV-series that looks cool, neat, Hollywood-grade – with an exotic touch.”

The team worked to write a short TV-series (10 episodes of 13minutes each) that would feel like an action/adventure movie, but without leaving the bar: they wanted real characters living in a cool and dark universe, they wanted well-crafted gunfights & brawls, they wanted practical, eye-candy FX, they wanted a story that seems simple but suddenly turn out to be epic…

From the team: "Our three main partners are Parallell Cinéma, a production company specialized in crazy projects and new technologies (especially Stereo 3D cameras); Victorimage/Studio 26, a production company specialized in “extreme shootings”, who owns a big soundstage and quite a lot of equipment; and La Manufacture des Films, a company specialized in set decorating (they did 13 Tzameti and L’Héritage, two films by Gela Babluani that are Sundance Film Festival winners!).
