Hidden Frontier's original science-fiction project, Frontier Guard is moving into pre-production! Filming is slated to begin on the project later this year. The show will feature a new universe with new worlds, new aliens, and lots of new characters. The highly serialized format will begin as short webisodes and grow from there. The twenty-minute pilot episode, entitled "Sputnik" will introduce us to the show's lead, Conner Blake who is abducted in 1957.

With Pre-Production underway we have begun casting. Once we have the majority of the cast in place we will release more details. We're in the process of interviewing costume designers and solidifying props. CGI model work and rendering continues.
New costumes, props and set pieces will not be cheap, so we gladly appreciate all gift cards and support of our viewers! Contact Rick Pike RPIKE@hiddenfrontier.com for more info on how you can help or check out the "helping the Productions" thread on our forums.
