Behind The Scenes

The project was developed and brought into being by Nat Saenz of Tri-Cities International Fantastic Film Festival (TCIF3) . He sought out the directors, crew and actors that have worked hard to make this short film. Everyone volunteered and no one was compensated for their time and energy. Leading the team was Sean Kennedy.

The film was made during the RadCon 5C, a science fiction/fantasy convention at the Red Lion Inn in Pasco, WA. This 10 min short was filmed and a rough edit was done at the convention on Friday and Saturday. Convention goers were allowed to participate in front of and behind the camera as part of ďLetís Make a Movie: RadCon Style.Ē A rough cut was shown to the attendee's on Sunday. The World Premiere of Clockwork Infinity is set for 7:44pm at the Renovation Film Festival at Worldcon on August 18, 2011.
