PROJECT ARBITER Code Red poster

After a few years of patience from this indie movie fan, writer/director Michael Chance premiered his indie short concept movie project, called Project Arbiter, in Campbell, CA on Thursday, 11/15/12.

I met Michael via David Bettencourt during a film festival in San Jose in December of 2009.   I was completely taken by Mike’s short film in that festival, titled The Reason.  Later when Mike and Dave wanted to sit down and chat with me a few months later about a new film project of Mike’s, I was pretty excited.

And since that day in early 2010, I and a few thousand other fans and supporters have had to “suffer” and wait while tormented via website and Facebook updates from Mike.  Or in my case, with also a few buggering emails.

We all knew how capable Mike was with his projects… his attention to detail, his vision and the intelligent path he chooses to pursue to get his projects done.  When he showed me his production art notebook back in April of 2010, I was already hooked and anxious to see the finished product.  As were his many fans.

Project Arbiter 20-min indie short film

The wait is driving friends of Michael Chance crazy, but soon, we’ll be getting a chance to see his brainchild, Project Arbiter.

About Project Arbiter

“Set in 1943, the height of WWII, this is a story about an experimental O.S.S. unit code named Project Arbiter. Thousands of feet above Northern Europe a small plane carries a skeleton crew of the Allies best, including Special Fields Op. Captain Joseph Colburn. His handler, Major Thomas Hardy does a final review of the mission’s grim intel: infiltrate a mysterious villa on the Polish border and uncover its secrets. Colburn emerges donning a prototype suit, which can temporarily render its occupant invisible. As the plane’s bay doors howl open Colburn begins to put on the skull-faced helmet when the plane is rocked by an anti-aircraft shell. Rapidly losing air pressure and altitude, now there’s no question… this is a one-way mission.”

If interested, I spent some time chatting with Michael about the film some time back…   exclusive interview with michael chance about the movie and his experience developing it in the early stages.
