On May 1, 2018, long-time soundtrack producer, and creator of Film Score Monthly, Lukas Kendall launched an Indiegogo campaign to finance SKY FIGHTER a short sci-fi film. The short film will be used as a proof-of-concept for a full length feature film. Composer Ron Jones, known for his stellar video game score to the Star Trek Starfleet Academy video game, and his extensive television scores for Star Trek: The Next Generation, Ducktales, and Family Guy will be handling the music for SKY FIGHTER. Personally, I’ve read the script (which you can find on the campaign page) and found it to be both engaging and intriguing.

The rewards for the campaign include a soundtrack CD to the short, and additional new music composed by Ron Jones which will be produced by La-Land Records. Many of the rewards are soundtrack related and include CDs, or coupons for discounts at many soundtrack labels including Varese Sarabande, La-La Land Records, Intrada, Buysoundtrax, and Screen Archives Entertainment. You can watch the video for the Indiegogo campaign below:

I have loved Ron’s music since the early years of Star Trek: The Next Generation. He wrote 42 episode scores for TNG, including some of the greatest episodes: “11001001,” “Heart of Glory,” “Q Who,” “Who Watches the Watchers?” and “The Best of Both Worlds” (with that incredible cliffhanger as the Enterprise faces off against Borgified Picard—”Mr. Worf…fire!”). His orchestral/synthesizer soundscapes brilliantly evoke futuristic, computer-controlled environments, which is why I want him for Sky Fighter. Ron has a new recording and audio postproduction facility north of Seattle, SkyMuse Studios, where we will do our music recording, sound design and mix.

I already have offers to package the Sky Fighter feature script with a director and actors to get it made—but I wrote it with the intention to direct it myself. So I need to make a short film version of it to prove I can direct! The project is inspired by some of my favorite worlds: Battlestar Galactica/Robotech space warfare and Ghost in the Shell/Black Mirror cyber-technology.
