It has been a busy several months for Runaway Pen. Mostly, I (Mikel J. Wisler) have been hard at work directing my most ambitious short film to date, "A Silent Universe." A dramatic film set against a sci-fi backdrop, "A Silent Universe" is the story of two brothers trapped in their old garage as the world outside crumbles under an interstellar attack. The film was shot in late February and is now very near completion.
"A Silent Universe" represents the first film co-produced by Stories by the River, a non-profit filmmaking venture I have helped launch with The River Church in Quincy, Massachusetts. Already, Stories by the River is in pre-produciton for its sencond short film, "Melt," by writer/director Chaz Sutherland, for which I am serving as fellow producing and cinematographer.
