Fangirl Nation has shared an exclusive first look at the short sci-fi film The Long Dig, starring Kate Hackett (Classic Alice), Paul Todd (Candice, Classic Alice), Sarah Cortez (Dear White People, Angie Tribeca) and Cliff Simon (Stargate SG-1, NCIS). The film was directed by Tom R. Pike (Personal Space) and written by Kate Hackett and Tom R. Pike.

Eve (Hackett) scours decaying old ruins for Antenoch technology that was buried or otherwise preserved. Having – she hopes – perfected a mixture of oils that will prevent the decay of Antenoch artifacts, Eve is equipped to safely remove them from these ruins.

Today, she’s found an old transportation hub, perhaps a subway, haunted by monsters and hiding treasure. It is an adventure in darkness, with flashes of fear and bursts of action, about one woman’s desperate desire to return home.

The Long Dig is part of the larger Aeronauts universe, a tabletop game from Electric Purple Studios that will be released at a later date and was recently previewed at PAX. The Long Dig was also recently accepted to the Chicago Independent Film and TV Festival.

Kate Hackett is an actor and writer in Los Angeles, California best known for her award-winning Amazon series Classic Alice, which she also wrote and produced! Kate has been acting since she was four years old, happily joining musicals and straight plays in Washington D.C. until she reached Boston University for college.

Currently based in Los Angeles, California, Paul is slated to play the lead in The Nullarbor, shooting in Australia later this year, as well as having been seen more than 210 million times in various projects including Candice, Classic Alice and music videos from artists such as Romeo Santos.

Music and skate culture come together as SPINALL, Summer Walker, DJ Snake, and Äyannalink up for their impressive collaboration, “Power.” The global union of legendary musicians is a must-watch, as Walker and Äyanna’s sonorous vocals glide against the Afro-pop production.
Directed by Charlie Buhler of Doomsday, the video features fast-paced footage from the highly anticipated Flipper’s Skate Heist film: masked skaters swipe a pair of exclusive roller skates, while SPINALL, Summer, DJ Snake and Äyanna are stationed at the renowned Flipper’s Roller Boogie Palace.
“Power (Remember Who You Are)” is the soundtrack of the forthcoming film, which will be released in the lead-up to the opening of Flipper’s Roller Boogie Palace’s flagship roller skating rink in London. Watch “Power (Remember Who You Are)” HERE.
Says Äyanna: “Working with the skaters was deeply inspiring. It was an honour to share the space with them, and everyone on set was so passionate about the song and project as a whole. Being apart of the directors vision was humbling and a real honour. It felt amazing to be included in a culturally significant project.”
The stellar lineup includes an all-star cast of producers, including SPINALL, DJ Snake, Nicholas “Unknown Nick” Audino, and The Eggman. This superb cast enlisted legendary Dr. Dre, who mixed the starry track. The song is also executive produced by Jimmy Iovine, and LVRN’s Tunde Balogun and Justice Baiden.
