Orbital Redux is a live-performed, live-streamed, narrative interactive science-fiction series. Written and directed by Steven Calcote, it aired on Legendary Digital’s Alpha platform in Fall 2018, and immediately gained an enthusiastic fan following. The story of Orbital combines throwbacks to the Apollo era of space exploration both aesthetically and technologically. It’s a unique look at the not-too-distant future, in which Max Levodolinsky (Yuri Lowenthal), a former NASA astronaut candidate, struggles in a dead-end space transpo job. When a training mission for his replacement turns to disaster, they both get the chance to show they’ve got the right stuff!
Combining the latest and greatest digital live production technology with classic techniques of filmmaking, Orbital Redux is an exciting hybrid of old and new. It mixes the discipline and rigor of traditional production with the energy and excitement of live-streaming and audience interactivity. With a stellar cast (no pun intended), Orbital is a beautiful, warm world where viewers want to spend time with characters they’re invested in, and whose lives they hold in their hands…
