Dust - premiered at the Edinburgh Film Festival 2010 and screening at Raindance October 2010
In a collaboration with Stylus Films & Footagevault, Dust is the fictional story of the Apollo 18 mission, written by Jon Spira and directed by Ben Lavington Martin.
This short film, which premiered at the 2010 Edinburgh International Film Festival, intercuts archive film with a powerful script delivered by actor Bill Hope, and a stirring original score by composer Mark Rutherford.
It explores philosophical themes about life and love through the predicament of an astronaut marooned on the Moon, as he looks back at Earth. Dust was BAFTA longlisted in 2011 for best short film, and the winner of FOCAL's 2011 award for best use of archive in a short production.
