EARTH TO ECHO Interview with the Cast
This sci fi adventure film is about an alien who is trapped on earth and needs to get back home. Kids and an adorable, big eyed alien…... anyone thinking ET? Although the film elicits nostalgic memories of ET, Goonies, and other films of this genre, it stands on it's own based on the tech savvy kids of today, and the Found Footage method of filming. The adventure begins when a series of encrypted messages are sent to the kid’s cell phones. The kids, who are seemingly invisible to their parents, decide they have nothing to lose, and follow the map while Tuck documents their courageous endeavor.
My interview with these young bright actors was delightful. The interview began after they had already spent the majority of the day answering press questions. They remained polite and eager to answer my questions when a fire alarm went off shortly after we had begun. It was the perfect antidote to a long day for them. Could it have been Echo? They thought for sure it was, reminding us that he was out there and desiring to be part of the interview. Perhaps so. Either way it was a fun addition to our time together.
Grab the kids and go see this fun, family friendly summer movie! Relativity's Earth To Echo opens July 2nd, 2014.
