IN THE MAKING…
A unique, no-budget youth production. A sci-fi action/adventure.
A pioneer family in a neighboring solar system face the adventure of a lifetime on a remote planet — a film of romance, robots, and the will to survive.
Hi, I’m Wes. I’ve been spearheading this feature-length film, Space Prairie, since I was a sophomore in high school in 2013. I aim to complete this by the end of the year. The first half of the film, Act I, enjoyed its public debut on April 19th, 2019 for a one-time screening during Illinois Central College’s Arts Week in East Peoria, IL. Act II is progressing steadily, and the entire story will eventually be released for you to see.
If I wasn’t so busy finishing this gargantuan effort, you’d see a lot more here! In a few months, you will. I hope you’ll join me then—when this place is an enchanted space of dreams and adventure.

A frame from Scene 1 of Space Prairie (above). Production wrapped in 2016. Since then, it’s been an immense editing effort.
The prairie world beckons me to get back to work on the film itself! So, in the meantime, you can keep an eye on the Facebook page for occasional updates, though they’re few and far between for now.
Have a blessed day, thanks for visiting and I’ll see you back here in the days ahead.
Upwards & onwards! ~W
