The team behind The Record Keeper, a well-anticipated steampunk-style web series about angels navigating good, evil, God, and rebellion, has just announced a new project on the lives of angels. The Record Keeper was unceremoniously dropped by the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists earlier this year.
The teaser for The Planet Tender hit the internet last week and the full project is expected to be released in mid- to late 2015. The film is not a church project, but even before it was announced, director Jason Satterlund garnished promises of support from young Adventists across North America, South America, and beyond.
I recently spoke with the new film’s co-writer, Leslie Foster, a filmmaker based in Los Angeles.
“It’s been an amazing opportunity to work with Jason on this film,” Leslie said. “This is a project that’s so close to Jason’s heart, so to be entrusted with its creation is a huge honor. Jason’s been amazingly open and collaborative; I can’t wait to keep exploring the universe he’s created.”
I can’t wait either!
The Record Keeper is still gaining industry recognition and award nods, and it premiered in film format at the Raindance Film Festival in London last weekend. Reviews are positive.
“The film explores the turmoil between good and evil and questions about creation and humanity, questions that have occupied a space in many of our minds. The events recorded were foreseeable but the way these filmmakers executed the story was second to none. Who knew that with only a small cast the whole universe could be recreated?” —Chaneen Salako on The Record Keeper
