Best Sci Fi-01


Prelude to Axanar won “Best Sci Fi Short Film” at the Albuquerque Film Festival, 2016.  We are extremely honored!

Some people ask why we keep entering film festivals.  And it is simple.  There was a big team of talented pros who gave their hearts to Axanar and they deserve credit for their work.  Whether it is Alex Bornstein’s amazing score, which is worthy of any feature, or Rob Burnett’s amazing job editing, where Rob really acted like a director and came up with the amazing ending of Prelude, we had some amazing performances from cast and crew.  And they all deserve credit.

And so, Associate Producer Horace Austin, one half of the Austin brother duo of Charles and Horace (two of my favorite people in the world) has been spearheading the film festival effort for a year and a half.   And now we have almost 50 awards to show for it!

So thank you fans and thank you Horace!

    I am pretty sure you folks have more awards for a 20 minute film, than 99% of the television series garner in their entire runs. That speaks volumes on the quality and visual impact of Prelude. It is also one well deserved illustration of your entire teams capabilities. Congratulations to all of you!

    Not forgetting the essential contribution of the Director, Christian Gossett.

    Might we please be shown an image of all these wonderful awards together on the axanar site or facebook page(s)? I have not seen the awards in any images or videos you have shown of Ares Studios…seems like they are well hidden or going out of the way not to show them…or just coincidence lol. Might that be a bad idea at this time to show all those awards….like you’re shoving some noses in all those awards lol.

    In any case, close to 50 awards….for the prelude…for the PRELUDE! Amazing! So…the movie should earn double 😉

    I stand with Axanar
