Focus Locus Screening “Gale and the Fish”

Tonight we premiere one of the films produced with an NCTV Production Grant: “Gale & the Fish” by Melissa McClung

Following the film will be a Q&A with the Melissa and a live performance by Kid Biff who composed original music for the film.

In a campy, sci-fi not-so-distant future, Gale Allen is a workaholic naturalist on the National Maintenance Team for Aquatic Robotics (NMTAR). Gale spends her days catching and repairing government-issued robofish that populate the rivers and oceans. Out in the river one day, Gale nets something mysterious… a real fish. Clueless about what to do with the creature, Gale’s search for answers brings her on a journey through her family’s history.

Cast and crew include local artists Katie Spurgin (Gale), Trenda Loftin (actor), Finneas Scott (actor), Andrew Plimpton (actor), Ari Hayes (assistant director), Nina Alexander (production design), Andrew Oedel (music & sound design), Sophie Lederman (costumes & make-up) and Kate Barber (titles & graphics).
