The Astronot Screenplay by screenwriter Pennan Brae is a Finalist in Historical Feature Screenplay at the Filmmatic Pitch Now Screenplay Competition in LA. The screenplay was written in Vancouver following a photosession between Pennan & photographer Dan Jackson of Manifest Photography. It was a space-themed photoshoot for an upcoming album cover for Pennan. He was wearing an astronaut suit & standing beneath a full moon. Just then, Dan asked Pennan to hold an old ladder as though that was Pennan’s sole means of reaching the moon. Just then the idea of someone wanting dearly to become an astronaut, but being unable for some reason came to be. & hence, The Astronot was born.
