In between the worlds of comedy and sci-fi will live a masterpiece known as “The Lower Decks”; a sitcom that plays off of the cliche’s of the sci-fi genre. Produced by Andrew Townsend, Thomas Reyes-Cairo, and Taylor Ehlert, this is sure to be something a little different!
Pre-production began in April with the completion of our script and the posting of our casting call. In May we auditioned many great actors, and selected our fantastic cast. We also began working with Lakeview Academy and Renaissance Academy to organize the use of their state-of-the-art star ship simulators. We finished off May with an amazing table read bringing together our entire cast and realizing that this is going to be an amazing project.
As we continue to get closer and closer to shooting our production, The Lower Decks, pre-production gets more exciting! While both Lakeview and Renaissance have wonderful looking simulators, they do not have anything that meets our needs of the belly of a star ship. As such, we have taken it upon ourselves to build one.
We are still accepting sponsors for those who are interested, and look forward to continued success and creativity as this project grows and moves onward and upward. Shooting will begin on July 22nd and conclude on July 29th. Please contact the producers Andrew, Thomas, or Taylor directly if you would like to donate financially to this project. If you’d like to donate time or materials, please reach out to us as well.
