Beyond White Space is about space fishing. For real. The sci-fi action film stars Fight Club’s Holt McCallany as the captain of a deep space fishing vessel who encounters a large, mythic creature. After a robbery, the ship’s crew must chase after the creature in order to salvage their trip. Oh, and the creature may be the same one that killed the captain’s father.
Written by Ryan Colucci and Clay McLeod Chapman and directed by visual effects artist Ken Locsmandi, Beyond White Space opens in theaters and on demand December 14—and we’re excited to exclusively debut the film’s badass trailer.
Now, obviously, Beyond White Space is not a big time Hollywood production. It’s a labor of love on a budget that’s a mere percentage of what it could have been. And yet, that trailer is a hell of a lot of fun. The creature looks great, the suits are rad, there seems to be some real emotion there, and the whole Jaws/Moby Dick/20,ooo Leagues in space vibe feels different and exciting. We hope it lives up to the potential, and we’ll all find out December 14.
Pretty Awesome—- GEORGE R.R. MARTIN graces us with his presence today. Check out his post about The Skin Trade on his very own blog. When I first optioned the story for www.mtpprods.com, I was drawn to it on several levels and, as we continue to develop the project, we are full-on living, breathing these characters and the universe in which they exist.
It’s unarguable, GRRM is well deserving of his recent accolades, which have been a long time coming— one of Time Magazine’s Top 100 Most Influential People, USA Today’s Author of the Year, and New York Times Bestseller, with much thanks HBO’s production of George’s ‘Game of Thrones’. As an auteur, his work is being enjoyed en masse- he’s becoming a brand of sorts- and it’s this fervor that surrounds his work as of late, that makes the project that much more exciting. We loved him and his work well before GoT—but now, it’s as if this project can be rightly celebrated by so many who recognize his genius, that may have overlooked the project otherwise before.
‘nuff said— bottom line— Get ready for a twist-and-turn murder mystery like no other you’ve ever seen before— and much thanks to George R.R. Martin and Vince Gerardis.

Captain’s Log April 1, Year of our Lord, Twenty-Eleven: Okay, the anchor’s not quite up yet, and though it’s April 1st, don’t be fooled, there is treasure on the horizon. MTP has been working hard behind the scenes to ensure smooth sailing with a few major opportunities for MTP and its shareholders. One, in particular, with producing partner, Ryan Colucci and a strategic relationship with www.filmworksfx.com founder, Ken Locsmandi, should provide a sea of good news for all those who didn’t jump ship post-reverse on the company’s publicly traded entity, MIKP. There’s not too much we’ll say pre-public announcement, but I can say I am confident like never before that we will accomplish more than anyone bargained for in 2011, with respect to motion pictures, graphic novels and the company’s stock. The announcement is in line with a project that MTP will embark on with Ryan, myself and Jim Devoti producing, with visual effects genius, Ken Locsmandi, helming the controls. Until our next entry, Regards.
