Black Box is a sci-fi feature film made by small Salford indie studio, Newfound Planet Films, and shot in a Salford warehouse on a custom built escape pod spaceship set and in a green screen studio with zero gravity special effects.

Set in space, the movie is a survival thriller in a future when mining asteroids for resources has become commonplace. The film stars local actor Garry Graham Smith as Marcus, who has just about survived an accident in an asteroid station and ended up in an escape pod trying to make his way back to Earth safely with the black box from the station.

Black Box is the second feature film made by Newfound Planet; its first, Brothers Day, set in gangland Manchester, was screened at international festivals, had a theatrical release and had proper DVD distribution in five countries.

This latest movie is almost set to be unleashed but the producers are looking for crowdfunding of 3,000 to enable it to be post-production polished for release.

Rewards for backing Black Box range from 5 'Space Control Operator', with a 'thanks' credit and a badge, to 10 'Space Flight Traveller' (digital package of script, photos, poster, badge), to 20, 50, 100 and 200 funding package rewards and, for 1,000, the title credit of Executive Producer with a visit to the set and other exclusives.

For the sci-fi freak who thinks they've got everything...

ECCLES SHELTER FILLING GAPS IN ANDY BURNHAM'S 'BED EVERY NIGHT' AS SALFORD COMMUNITY PROVIDE HUGE SUPPORT

For over a month, more than a dozen homeless people have occupied an old empty doctor's surgery in Eccles. The NHS owns the building but, ironically, wants them out and back on the freezing streets. Yet vulnerable people who have fallen through Andy Burnham's 'A Bed Every Night' net are being supported here by rough sleepers teams and grass roots outreach workers...

"We want to bring more people into this building because while we've got it we feel that we're saving people's lives" says Angela Barratt of Salford Street Support "The Salford community has been fabulous with us."
