C is the story of a radical act of mutiny during an interplanetary cold war.
With the help of co-conspirators, Lt.Cmdr. Malleck attempts to comandeer the powerful warship Kestros IV for a grand new purpose.
But when a contingent of the crew led by 2nd Lieutnant Kai threatens her plans, Malleck must use the ship against them in order to succeed.
C received widespread recognition for its unique special effects. No CGI or greenscreen was used in the making of the film. Instead, the spaceship and action sequences were accomplished with miniature photography, mechanical props, rear-projection, split-screen, and other classic techniques.
Originally released in 2013, a director's cut with a new soundtrack was released in 2021, and debuted
at the Brooklyn Sci-Fi Film Festival.
