View Relevant Story Scene #2

As Alma struggles to save Jora’s life while floating outside of the ISS, the crew witnesses a mysterious flash that appears to extinguish all signs of life on Earth. In the immediate aftermath, Alma and Jora attempt to rocket back onto the ISS as the crew desperately tries to reboot communications and restore basic systems that rely on contact with the ground or other satellites. Once onboard, the crew finds themselves locked out of the only escape vehicle they can take back to Earth.

Creative Considerations

Artists shelby and sandy are hard at work building out the visual universe for the core narrative of THE DISCO BALL, but we are searching for two artists who can reimagine a new aesthetic world and style that represents this particular sequence of events in the crew’s desperate attempt for survival.
