Aaron Douglas – Joins “Cockpit”, also on Kickstarter

Aaron Douglas Fans418c120e85d9ed5ff299add886de7c59_original announced a few days ago that Aaron Douglas has joined “Cockpit”.

“Cockpit” is a project by Jesse Griffith, who also created a kickstarter page in the hopes of having his proof of concept 10 minute short film “Cockpit:  The Rule of Engagement” be the premise of a full feature film.

Jesse Griffith about “Cockpit”:

“Cockpit” is “Top Gun” meets “Aliens.” The feature-length screenplay has won Best Sci-Fi Screenplay from Fantastic Planet Film Fest in Sydney Australia, and at the Los Angeles Film & Script Festival, as well as additional awards and finalist positions from other festivals.


I’ve made a short proof of concept film subtitled “Cockpit:  The Rule of Engagement”, to show what I can do with very little money ($3,000). I believe I can capture the same lightning in a bottle for the feature, and if you love sci-fi, you won’t want to miss this journey.

logline: “Earth’s best pilots are stranded in space, struggling with what’s real and what’s not as they battle aliens that control minds.”
