the space between us meetup

The Space Between Us, NYC Movie Meetup Recap

Had a great time with everyone who came to hang out and see The Space Between Us! (iTunes | Amazon)

The tween romance might seem like an odd choice, but you take what you can get when Chris Noessel is in town and there’s only one scifi movie playing. 😉
My favorite part of these things anyway are the conversations afterwards anyway. It’s about finding ideas to explore. Had a bunch of good, smart folks who find approaches to things that I’d never think of. And this movie had a bunch of spacey Mars-ey biology physics stuff to take apart. Keep an eye out for an episode on the film, of course.

Follow us on our social feeds to make sure you hear about the next one! Sometimes short notice can keep us from announcing things on the show itself (like this time).

Show Notes

We did an interview! Since it’s not the normal format, we’re releasing this as a bonus halfway between normal episodes. And we took Peter Van Loon’s suggestion for alternate naming!
We talk here with Cailin Munroe from The Expanse all about a bunch of stuff: the role of the producer, on-set work, diaper butts, ship designs, physics FX, device and environment UI, space hair, dogs barking, matte paintings, 3D animated sets, the next form of the blue goo ☠️
