Showing all 12 items
  • Based on the 15 minute short film of the same name.
  • The filmmakers hired an art collective of carpenters, industrial designers, mechanics, and cosplayers to create all the handmade costumes and props for the film.
  • All of Prospect's exterior shots were filmed in the Hoh Rainforest on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State.
  • The particles of poisonous dust that flutter across the moon-forest are practical effects, not CGI. Basement dust was thrown into the air, filmed, and overlaid into the finished movie.
  • The film took 40 days to film because the filmmakers had to abide by child labor laws for Sophie Thatcher. The budget was a respectable 3.9 million.
  • The filmmakers really wanted Andre Royo for the role he ended up playing after watching him in 2002's The Wire (2002) as Reginald "Bubbles" Cousins.
  • The script by Zeek Earl and Christopher Caldwell was what drew Pedro Pascal to the film. He liked the eloquent and respectable dialogue for his character. They decided later to tone down how "Shakespearean" it was.
  • The moon on which the aurelac is harvested is called "Bakhroma Green". Harvesters will take drop pods (because of ease of use in the dense forest due to their manageable size) that are dropped by the former Kaslo Service Route which was extended Central-BG Line to facilitate the rush to Bakhroma.
  • The characters reference needing to get to the slingback. When the commuter freighter that carries the passengers approaches the green moon, the drop pods descend to the planet. The freighter then orbits around the backside of the green moon. Once it makes a 360 degree turn back to the way it came, the drop pods are able to reconnect and travel back to Central.
  • When Cee and Ezra meets mercenaries, mercenary woman Inumon turns on the radio Latvian song Dudievins, written by Imants Kalnins and performed by Ilona Balina (1970).
  • Most of the dialogue was taken from the actual helmets while the actors are speaking and very little was done in terms of ADR.
  • The second song to be heard in the mercenary camp is "Pasaulite" performed by the Latvian band "Eolika"
