Can Tuskegee Airman Curt Masters return to Earth from light years away---ALIVE???

The reason I write and produce stories featuring black characters is because their are very little heroes in mainstream media that look like African Americans. So I am creating a film called "The Flying Bullet: Peril of the Phoenix Planet" which will be a SCI-FI adventure film dealing with a Tuskegee Airman being transported millions of mile away from Earth in 1943.


This film is a 100% science fiction story. I took the rich history of African Americans and combined it with the science fiction genre. The story deals with the struggles of African Americans to be counted as full citizens of the United States in defense of their country during WWII. Curt Master soon discovers that the planet Earth is entangled in a bigger intergalactic struggle to remain free from a nefarious Warlord.

My screenplay is already complete. I plan to begin shooting in June of 2010. I have enlisted aid from other African American actors, illustrators and visual effects personnel. The film will be shot in a studio using green screen technology, on location in Hunstville, Alabama for outdoor scenes and at the U.S Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama for interior sci-fi scenes.

The film should be complete by February 2010. I plan on entering it in the the Atlanta Film Festival in April of 2011 in Atlanta, Georgia for its premiere. Also I will premiere it at the Boys and Girls Club of Huntsville, Alabama for free to all the kids. Then the film will go on sale for the public in June 2011.

Special bonus features will include upcoming projects and a "making of a director commentary."

I believe that everyone deserves heroes that look like them.
