A new sci-fi parody film, UNBELIVABLE!!!!!, is released tomorrow with a virtual ‘Stay At Home’ Red Carpet Premiere and Live Online Virtual Convention, allowing fans to watch the official release of the movie at home.
The film has been produced independently and wears its low budget and lo-fi production values proudly on its chest – but that hasn’t stopped writer/director/executive producer Steven L. Fawcette and his team from spending every available dollar, favour and resource in amassing a truly interstellar cast, including the likes of Snoop Dogg, Robert Davi, Michael Madsen, Gilbert Gottfried, Katarina Van Derham, McKenzie Westmore and over FORTY former STAR TREK stars from across the franchise’s history, such as Garrett Wang, Nichelle Nichols, Marina Sirtis, Michael Dorn, Robert Picardo and Nana Visitor.
The duel roles of Captain Connie Garrison and baddie henchwoman Natasha are filled by the captivating talents of Chase Masterson, a STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE alumni who is best known by fans as Quark’s favourite Bajoran Dabo girl, Leeta.
The Convention Collective’s Darren Shulman was very lucky to get the chance to hold a Zoom call with Chase to talk about her time on ST:DS9, her experiences on filming UNBELIEVABLE!!!!! and also the challenges of being upstaged by the film’s leading, erm, man!
Thanks to Chase for her generous time for this interview and to David Roberson of Roberson Public Relations for setting up the conversation.
