Star Drunk: A Sci-Fi Film by Drunk People
Star Drunk is a pretty clever science fiction space drama was written and performed while drunk. The Captain and his crew must battle against the evil Gorgonzolla. “Pew! Pew! Pew!”
Directors Chris R Wilson and Zach Persson summarize their approach thusly: “Star Drunk is an experiment in writing a short film while drunk; several writers from Portland got together one night to write the script. We promised each other that whatever we wrote that night, we’d produce as a short film. We ended up creating a Star Trek-Star Wars-Battlestar Galactica’esque parody with laser gun fights and space battles. Taking the concept a step further (and stranger), we asked our cast to be drunk on the night of filming.”
