SIRIUS LEE MOVIE TRAILER

Sirius Lee, The Problematic Time Transplant is a micro web series. Season one consists of 10 episodes with an average length of 4 minutes per episode. This is a comedic sci-fi web series with a musical twist.

When Sirius Lee isn’t mastering quantum teleportation, he can be found busting bad guys, or spitting hot bars with wholesome messages! But, his old school ways won’t save him when he’s transplanted to modern-day Oakland, CA in the year 2020.  He’ll have to contend with sky-high rent prices, legalized refer, and his estranged 45-year-old son Junior as he fights tirelessly to get back to 1980.  Sirius Lee tries his best to adapt to his new surroundings and learns some valuable lessons about nutrition, toxic masculinity, and the health benefits of cannabis along the way. He’ll also rekindle his relationship with Junior and encounter some new and old friends that will help him get back to his time.

Director Statement

Sirius Lee is an idea I conceived of over 10 years ago. I wanted to make an animated series that explores time travel through the lens of a black person. Of course, the original idea I had is was way bigger than the budget and skillset I have, so I got creative and decided to make it live-action and cast myself in the lead role to reduce the overall cast budget. The experience of making this first season has helped me realize how much I love acting and working with film crews to bring a vision to life. I consider this project the highlight of my career to this point and I cannot wait to share this series with the world!

About The Event

Ted Geoghegan 2017, USA, 91 mins

The War of 1812 has revived violent hostilities between the British and their erstwhile American colonial subjects. The powerful Mohawk nation of the New York region is divided as to whom they should stand by, and so they maintain a position of neutrality. They want no part in the killing – but the killing is coming to them. An impulsive attack on an American encampment has drawn the vengeful attentions of a ragged band of American military renegades, led by the vicious, racist Hezekiah Holt. Oak, Calvin, and their British lover Joshua flee into the woods so familiar to them, but the murderous musketeers on their trail will not be deterred. Not without the spilling of blood.
