    What We Are Doing

    “For All Mankind” is a New York University Short Film,  directed by the award-winning filmmaker Dan Clifton.

    “For All Mankind” tells the story of Johnny Red, a disenfranchised young man who always dreamed of becoming a NASA scientist. Instead, after several academic mishaps, Johnny decides that successfully building a time machine is the only way to restore his credibility. Ridiculous, spectacular and heartwarming, Clifton intends to tell this simple tale with the special effects and bombastic aplomb most typically found in the usual summer blockbuster.

    “For All Mankind” will be filmed in Philadelphia, PA and the surrounding areas (mainly Conoshohocken, PA) the week of Friday, October 10th – Sunday, October 19th. It is one of the largest student films to ever film in Pennsylvania involving celebrated actors, large amounts of professional equipment, and police and fire department involvement.


    Over the next two weeks - as the crew gets more and more involved in pre-production, look for specific updates on how you can help! To get involved - shoot an email to our contact at:

    How You Can Help

    Our team is shooting For All Mankind over the stretch of October 11th through the 19th in Conshohocken, Chestnut Hill and Center City Philadelphia.

    We are looking for and can accept In-Kind donations of food products to help feed the cast and crew during this period. To pull off such an amibitious shoot, we will be bringing down a sizeable crew of around 20. Over the course of the week feeding everyone will be quite difficult.

    On October 12th, we are shooting the culmination of the film- the Time Machine launch sequence. For this scene, we are looking to create the effect that the entire town of Conshohocken has come out to see the main character Johnny Red launch his device.

    We are looking for as many people as possible to come out to be extras in the film on Sunday October 12th in Cedar Grove Park in Conshohocken. (The intersection of Wells Road and Cedar Grove Road.) We are shooting from 10AM until 6PM.October 12th
