“Satellite Beach Film,” Luke Wilson’s First Short Film

It was a packed crowd that showed up to actor Luke Wilson’s movie screening and Q&A session at Ringling College last Friday, during which he premiered a 20-minute short film he wrote and directed with his brother, Andrew Wilson, for the first time to a public audience.
The short, titled Satellite Beach, follows Wilson’s character—“who’s crazy,” the actor says—as he pretends to be a NASA official whose job it is to track the path of the Endeavor space shuttle’s journey through the streets of Los Angeles, from LAX to its home at the California Science Center, as well as the space shuttle Atlantis’ journey to its final resting place at Kennedy Space Center here in Florida. The movie was filmed during the Endeavor’s actual move through the streets of L.A.—not easy, Wilson recalls, although he and his team managed to figure out. “With a clipboard and a tie, you can do just about anything,” he says.
And even though this was a low-budget short film, writing and making Satellite Beach was rewarding for Wilson. “I’ve always enjoyed writing, and as an actor you do have so much time on your hands, whether you have a job or not, so I feel like it’s important to be productive,” he says. “I’d written a script and gotten one movie made, and then I’d written a couple more and had difficulty getting them off the ground, so I thought [with this] I’d try something different. It’s a little more rough-hewn than a regular movie, I learned just as much making it as I have on anything else.”

Watch as Warren Flowers, a devoted and unlikely shuttle manager navigates the missions on his own accord while the citizens, reporters, and officials are perplexed by his involvement.
