Eric Swain and Troy Bernier are geologists by trade, but their real passion lies in their after-hours hobby: making imaginative and often unintentionally funny low-budget science fiction films. Armed with a cast of wannabe actors, some basic editing skills and a working knowledge of green screen, Swain and Bernier’s latest project is their most ambitious to date—an epic adventure through outer space to the mysterious Planet X. Filmmakers Myles Kane and Josh Koury create a wacky, affectionate love letter to amateur craftsmen and fanatical hobbyists everywhere, as they follow the duo’s ardent mission to overcome their lack of technical know-how and realize their vision on the big screen. This hilarious, touching tribute to the joys of filmmaking in its most essential form is sure to bring out your inner film geek.


In Person: Directors Josh Koury and Myles Kane; subjects Eric Swain and Troy Bernier.
