Production Description

Casting "Anomaly," a short film. Set in the late '60s, "Anomaly"' is the story of broken relationships and an astronomical event intertwining the various narrative threads. Oliver, a young astronaut on a solo space mission, is fighting for communication with his fiancée, Hayley, whom he left just after finding out she was pregnant. As he strives for restoration in their relationship, an unusual astronomical event begins to take place. It is an event, predicted many years ago by scientist Noel Fitz, an elderly widower. His theories have subsequently been disregarded due to an unstable mental condition brought on by the trauma of his loss. Also following the development of the events is a young astronomy professor who realizes that Noel Fitz's predictions are beginning to come to pass. The story follows Oliver's journey as he attempts to regain a signal with earth - and subsequently communication with Haylee, and Noel's journey as he navigates through his failures and heartache. All the while the stars are starting to show signs of something extra-ordinary taking place on earth.
