As reported recently on Deadline, the Brazilian feature film LUCICREIDE GOES TO MARS starring comedian Fabiana Karla has become the first Brazilian film to accomplish many feats on American soil. First and foremost, the film has become the first production — and Brazil Production Services the first company — to be cleared by NASA to film with a drone at the Kennedy Space Center near Orlando, Florida. Secondly, the film is the first Brazilian film and only feature film of any nationality to film there since the 1998 blockbuster film, ARMAGEDDON.
A third "first" for the film was shooting scenes where its actors floated around like astronauts experienciing true zero gravity. A different unit of the production took the cast and crew to Las Vegas where scenes were shot inside a zero gravity plane (a plane that free-falls from tens of thousands of feet in the atmosphere creating the weightlessness for the passengers). Never before had a Brazilian feature film featured scenes with weightlessness and we are very proud to have assisted Brazilian production company Z4 Studio, director Rodrigo Cesar and the great cast pull this fantastic shoot off in the US and to be a pioneer film with some many firsts.
