Creator Alexander Pfander decided to produce a 5 part mini series as a prequel to develop the universe of Mission Backup Earth. A means of testing the production process and introduce the concept of the series to science fiction fans.
The series co-ordination was achieved through the crowd-sourcing website Wreckamovie which was invented by the makers of Iron Sky, and was subsequently shot entirely in front of blue screen and shooting took place in late summer 2012 in a studio in Berlin.
The post production was accomplished by dozens of global volunteers. With the final editing and compositing being done by Finnish editor Hannu Hoffren.
The series is scheduled to air on the new ‘App-media’ platform created by Don Allen, with initial idea to air the prequel series on smart-phones and tablets.
