(Lawrenceville, GA) – The Rocketworx, a Georgia-based, independent film production company, announced its recent sponsorship agreement with OWC, a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company based in Austin, TX. Rocketworx founder and CEO, Alec Peters, created and produced the Star Trek fan film PRELUDE TO AXANAR, which has won 47 film festival awards around the world.
“We want to build on the success of PRELUDE TO AXANAR and produce other great science fiction content.” explains Rocketworx’s Peters. “Opening a studio in the Atlanta market opens up many new possibilities for us – one of which is the expansion of our long-standing relationship with OWC.”
Peters and Robert Meyer Burnett, the editor of PRELUDE TO AXANAR, joined OWC at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show in Las Vegas in April to show how OWC’s drives and technology were used in creating both the short film and scenes from the yet-unfinished feature. “OWC has been with us since the very beginning,” said Peters. “And this new agreement with them will help us take our capabilities and the stories we tell to the next level.”
As part of the agreement, The Rocketworx’s 6,000 square foot facility in Lawrenceville will be known as OWC Studios. “We’re excited to be a part of the team at The Rocketworx, making great things happen,” said OWC’s Founder and CEO, Larry O’Connor. “When you see what these guys and gals did with our equipment on AXANAR, and what they’ve produced so far, it’s easy to see why we want to remain an integral part of this company.”
Following the opening of OWC Studios in Lawrenceville, Peters will get back to work finalizing production details around the remainder of his Star Trek fan film project AXANAR. “We’re still committed to making the two, 15-minute installments of the story of Axanar and finishing telling the story of Garth of Izar and The Four Years War.” Peters explained. “We also have several other productions and co-productions in the development pipeline and OWC will be involved in all of them.”
