Pixelab Studios produced a short film last summer, along with Mike Smith, titled Stage Five. The film follows Sasha, played by Sarah E Jacobs, as she recalls her last moments on Earth after claiming a mysterious voice informed her of her pending death. The film has since screened at film festivals around the country, including the North Hollywood CineFest, Indie Oaks Film Festival and Washington PA Film Festival. We were fortunate enough to have Haji Muya filming behind-the-scenes footage, showing the cast and crew at work throughout production. Mike Smith, Sarah Jacobs and I also share our thoughts on bringing the story to life through music composition, cinematography and acting.
