Kenneth Barker is On the Shoulders of Giants

Kenneth Barker, proudly individualistic director of such films as Kingdom and Catalina: A New Kind of Superhero, reports that he has just locked his latest feature. On the Shoulders of Giants is a deliberately retro, 1950s-style space picture which pays 'subtle homage' to Forbidden Planet.

Ken expects to have the film completed by February with a preview screening shortly thereafter. The marketing for the movie will kick off next March when Ken is a guest speaker at the Platform Expos event in Hull.

You can watch a teaser trailer for OTSOG on Ken's website. The film stars Sarah Wood, Warwick St.John (Catalina, Kenneth, Driftwood), Adam Lee and Wayne Ewart with Carl Isherwood (The Deaths of Ian Stone, unfinished vampire feature Christian), Alex Skerratt, Simon Kirk, Alison George and Bob Mallow (Catalina). Special visual effects by Effectsland. Creature effects by Gazmask. Check out the groovy robot!
