Lukas Nelson & P.O.T.R. have kicked off the 2014 awards season on a high note. The group won the prestigious Bruce Corwin Award at the 29th Annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival on Feb. 9 for the score they wrote for the film ‘Satellite Beach,’ starring brothers Luke and Andrew Wilson.

“Luke Wilson and I are great friends,” Nelson explains. “He’s a huge music fan and a great guy to boot. Working on ‘Satellite Beach’ was the first professional collaboration we’ve had. It was the first time the band and I had done any film scoring, but we were presented with some incredible footage of the space shuttle, so the music just seemed to pour out.”

 

The music got high praise from Luke Wilson.

“To me, music is a character in movies,” he notes. “[The songs] are great. Ethereal. And wistful and upbeat. And they take ‘Satellite Beach’ home. And now when I watch it — it’s my favorite part of the movie. What these four players built out of nothing to help an idea along. So if you get the chance, watch ‘Satellite Beach.’ And listen to the band. And if you’re lucky — they’ll be at a town near you sometime soon and you can see them in person. They make it happen.”

‘Satellite Beach,’ which won an award for Best Live Action Short Film Under 30 Minutes, was recorded at producer John Avila’s home studio.

“Together with John, we were able to score a beautiful film, and I am happy to say the process was relaxed and creative,” Nelson says. “There is nothing better than working with good friends.”

Nelson, who is the son of Willie Nelson, is working on a new project with his band, which he says is a lot more upbeat than their 2012 record, ‘Wasted.’

The group is spending most of the next few months on the road, including shows in Arkansas, Kansas and New Orleans this week. See all of their upcoming shows here.

“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.”

Satellite Beach Film follows the unique journey of the Endeavour space shuttle as it travels through the streets of Los Angeles to the California Science Center and the final move of the Atlantis space shuttle to the Kennedy Space Center. 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.
