In our continuing goal of highlighting BlackSci-Fi and contributions by creators of color across the various creative spectrums, we here at BlackSci-Fi.com are going to highlight some awesome Kickstarter, IndieGoGo, and GoFund Me campaigns you might want to donate to. Check out the below campaign, and spread the word.
From the Indiegogo website:
Godspeed is the near future story of Brandy, a woman who is confronted with a new understanding of what it is to be human. Godspeed is a new day in American science fiction, one where a Black woman character is driving the story. This project is bringing a fresh perspective to science fiction film, starting at the level of the storytellers.
A brilliant tech editor whose mind begins falling apart finds herself losing the battle to hold on to life as she knows it. She fears she’s becoming schizophrenic, until someone she trusts informs her that she is NOT becoming psychotic. Instead, her issues are connected to the fact that she is not human…..and the only remedy that will save her is on another world that she has no knowledge of.
My name is Celia C. Peters and I’m a writer/director/producer and visual artist currently based in Columbus, OH, also working in NYC/Oakland/L.A. I create character-driven sci-fi stories that are led by women and POC — people who look like me. I’m on a mission to expand this genre. Right now I’m developing my first feature film, GODSPEED, for production in 2019.
Bold, visceral, avant garde: GODSPEED is a fresh, futuresexy project that dives into the possibilities for advanced life outside our solar system.
