+The Astronot (http://bit.ly/AstroTwitter) by Bend, Oregon director Tim Cash won Best Oregon Feature at the Oregon International Film Awards. The Far From Earth Films Production (http://bit.ly/AstroInsta) was shot in & about Bend, La Pine & Fort Rock, Oregon. It takes place during the space race (http://bit.ly/FBAstro) of the 1960s & follows one man’s boyhood dream of becoming an astronaut (http://bit.ly/AstroIMDb). Daniel McKovsky dreamt of becoming an astronaut ever since he was a young kid growing up along the Deschutes River in the 1940s (http://bit.ly/AstroTease). But of course there was no such thing as astronauts in those days; it was well before NASA. An astronaut was simply the stuff of science fiction, lining the pages of Daniel’s 1930s Buck Rogers novels he’d reach each day. But then as he grew, the distance between humankind & space shrank as the Russians & Americans were embarking on space travel in low Earth orbit. & then it broadened out to our nearest satellite & Daniel was on the edge of his seat watching every mission. It was the life of The Astronot.

+The Astronot Soundtrack (http://bit.ly/iTunesAstro) by singer-songwriter Pennan Brae (http://bit.ly/2PBTube) is now available on Google Play (http://bit.ly/GooglePlayPB) . The album serves as a soundtrack (http://bit.ly/iTunesAstro_ for +The Astronot film (http://bit.ly/AstroIMDb), currently out on the film festival circuit. The album was recorded at Blue Light Studio in Vancouver with Producer Kaj Falch-Nielsen, with additional sessions taking place in Los Angeles with renowned drummer Steve Ferrone and INXS bassist Garry Gary Beers. “Hearing Steve Ferrone lay down the drums and Garry Gary Beers adding bass on ‘Walk with Me’ and ‘Crashland’ is the highlight of my career,” says Pennan. Composer & producer Eric Alexandrakis (Like A Puppet Show) served as a mentor and one of the producers on The Astronot, and it was he who brought in Steve and Garry.

Producer Kirk Kelsey (Creed) joined the crew, working with Brae to make magic on the mixes, which include several instruments Brae has never used before – violin, cello, mandolin, pedal steel guitar, and banjo. “Kirk has such a wonderful touch and sensitivity on the tracks. His mixes gave the album a cinematic feel,” says Pennan. The Astronot was mastered by Grammy Award winning engineer Sean Magee (The Beatles Remasters, Pink Floyd, U2) at Abbey Road Studios.

Mostly The Astronot was the opportunity for the progress and change that Pennan Brae had been looking for. “My goal was to write an album instead of a group of separate singles. I wanted this record to flow from song 1 to song 11, and I think we did that. I hope that listeners enjoy hearing it unfold.”

The Astronot movie (http://bit.ly/AstroTease) by Far From Earth Films director Tim Cash is an Official Selection for Best Film at the Independent Shorts Film Fest in Australia. The film (http://bit.ly/FBAstro) was written by screenwriter Pennan Brae in Vancouver & then filmed in Oregon with Tim. The story (http://bit.ly/AstroIMDb) of +The Astronot begins in the 1940s & follows the life of Daniel McKovsky from childhood to adulthood. As a child, Daniel loved to stargaze all night & gaze up at the moon (http://bit.ly/AstroTumblr). He wondered if anyone would ever fly there. As an adult, Daniel was watching the space race to the moon unfold before his eyes. All of his childhood quetsions were being answered. Daniel lived a very lonely life though. He lived deep in the woods of Central Oregon & rarely socialized. Yet he was beginning to withdraw from that lifestyle with the help of a lovely young woman named Sandy. It was a bumpy road though from hermitage to socializing. It was the life of The Astronot.

The Astronot movie (http://bit.ly/AstroIMDb) by director Tim Cash won the Silver Award for Best Sci-Fi Feature Film at the Queen Palm International Film Festival in Palm Springs. Daniel (http://bit.ly/AstroTease) dreamed of becoming an astronaut ever since he was a kid growing up in the 1940s. He’d dream about it. During the day he’d read his 1930s Buck Rogers novels & at night he’d gaze at the stars (http://bit.ly/AstroTwitter). By the time he was an adult, the space program had just gotten started & America & Russia were racing to the moon. He’d watch every mission in his home deep in the woods of Central Oregon. It was the life of The Astronot (http://bit.ly/AstroInsta).
