Wannabe filmmaker Jake (Ed Gonzalez Moreno) is facing personal turmoil in the light sci-fi thriller, The Alternate. In the opening act, we discover this person has issues. He’s not feeling satisfied with his life. Since graduating from film school, he’s been making ends meet by producing corporate videos rather than pursuing the Hollywood dream.
I’m sure some people have asked this question at some point: Is it possible to find that success that one has been craving all their life? The answer lies in what an individual will do to achieve it. To cheat at it often leads to trouble. Jake dreams of being a producer like Stephen Spielberg. He has a feature film in the works; Space Drive is an idea he’s having difficulty getting off the ground. Ironically, the title of that passion project doesn’t exist, since he’s not even made a proper pitch and proof of concept to shop around.
