TIN CAN fans may be interested in another project that Intrinsic Films, our production company, is now involved with. It’s called State of Green and it’s a feature-length documentary film focusing on the renewable energy revolution in Vermont, and its effects on the people and landscape of the state. Unlike other films which have been released about this topic in the past, this one is deliberately taking a balanced approach and telling all sides of the story in order to allow viewers to formulate their own opinions. The film is being directed by Eric Clifford, who played Cpt. Mark Riley in TIN CAN, and is being produced by Stephen J. Maas, who played Cmdr. Peter Bennett.
There is a Kickstarter fundraiser underway to support the film’s production. The video showcases a lot of the footage which has already been captured and will give you a very good sense of what it’s all about. We’d appreciate you taking a look here!

Jared Mobarak has posted a review of TIN CAN on his website. Some choice bits:
…the practicality of this ship’s centrifugal force physics are glossed over in lieu of watching its claustrophobia-inducing nature slowly consume its inhabitants. Rather than excite by expensive special effects, this high concept setting is used to enhance the human suspense thriller underneath….
…special mention should be made for Argento and Clifford. Embodying the best-written roles with aplomb, their evolution is entertaining and authentic as it culminates into a hellish downward spiral. Leaving both without an authority figure for the second half of the film is a stroke of genius…

We had a nice write-up in the Williston Observer the other day. A few things to correct: Steve and Logan built the set together, and Jayson Argento is not pictured in that photo — that’s Mike Foster. We also didn’t digitally zoom through the vents, we physically stuck the cameras through them, but details details…overall a positive article and we thank Luke for the coverage and for attending our screening!

on The Vermont Voice, 1490 AM WIKE (10/22/2011):
He also appeared on WVTK 92.1 FM (10/19/2011) to discuss the two films:
Have a listen!
To the VTIFF, and especially everyone who came out to see our film last night at Palace 9: thank you from the bottoms of our hearts!
The screening was an incredible experience for us. The presentation was incredible — the best projection and sound quality of our film we have ever witnessed. And if that weren’t enough, the room was packed to the brim with so many supportive fans and interested moviegoers! We couldn’t have wished for a more successful evening for our little film. We can only hope that everyone enjoyed it as much as we did. The response was overwhelmingly positive and we are just humbled by the entire event.
