The sci-fi short SPECTROGRAPHS AND SOLILOQUIES kicks off their Kickstarter campaign today!


At, we’re always about helping out artists of any type with reaching their dreams. Today we are helping promote a Kickstarter campaign for the film SPECTROGRAPHS AND SOLILOQUIES by Cody Lawrence. Lawrence is a graduate of USC film school and this will be his postgraduate directorial debut.

The film is about an astronomer who discovers an anomaly in the sky. After that, his life begins to fall apart. SPECTROGRAPHS AND SOLILOQUIES is co-produced by Will Cherry, Madeline Kushner and Marlene Rios. The film is already picking up speed with support from the Hero Complex Gallery in Los Angeles. The artist for the poster, Marko Manev, is doing a poster and the high-quality prints for the Kickstarter campaign. Check out the perks below:
