This week, Summer chats with Shane Abbess, director of the indie scifi feature The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume 1. He also co-wrote the film with Brian Cachia, which stars Kellan Lutz (Expendables 3, The Twilight Saga, HBO’s “The Comeback”), Daniel MacPherson (Infini, Shannara Chronicles, The Cup), Isabel Lucas (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Knight of Cups) and Rachel Griffiths (Hacksaw Ridge, “Six Feet Under”).
Shane talks about writing a story that is spread out over several films, and how “Volume 1” is the origin story for Indy, the girl who becomes the main character in later volumes. The scope and scale of this story is ambitious, and keeping the timeline as real as possible as she ages is a unique artistic vision.
He talks about how the saga stories of the 80s and 90s influenced what he wanted to create, not to compete with the big studio projects, but to fill a story-telling niche that seems to have been forgotten, or set aside.
The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One is available on digital, and out on Blu-ray & DVD December 5, 2017.
