Description: A deep space mining disaster leaves an astronaut stranded in an escape pod, with a sole AI companion – GRCE. As he comes to grips with the specter of the long journey home and a devolving situation his hope to see his wife again begins to slip away.
Director Commentary: Science fiction has always been close to my heart. The ability to tell stories that are deeply human against a backdrop which is otherworldly and the freedom that affords you has fascinated me since I was young. GRCE is a story about the keen insight that comes along with a devolving situation and how it shines a bright light on whatâ€™s truly important in the end. I truly hope you enjoy the film as much as I enjoyed making it.
Director Bio: Ian D’Amelia is the founder of Plan R Films, a group of filmmakers based in Northern Virginia. Over the past five years, he has directed several local commercials and multiple short form narratives.
