Associate Producer - New York City / Hollywood
A 40-year NYC screenwriter, Producer and Director, and good friend of David Rosler for about that long, Roy dreamed up and wrote the original screenplay "The Substitute" which was the number 1 box office winner when it was released and spawned 3 sequels as well writing literally dozens of others; wrote and produced the cult, multi-award-winning "Street Trash" which premiered at the prestigious Lincoln Center; wrote, produced and directed the sensitive documentary about Downs Syndrome, "Burt's Bikers" for NBC television; wrote, produced and directed the award-winning comprehensive documentary study of independent film-making in the US, focusing on the career of director and good friend, the late, legendary George Romero, "Document of the Dead" (pulling the title from the classic "Night of the Living Dead" series of motion pictures Romero Produced and Directed). From 1985 to 1994 Roy co-produced and co-directed the extremely prestigious annual D.W.Griffith Awards Ceremony, working directly with the likes of Paul Newman, Bette Davis, William Hurt, Steven Spielberg, Kirk And Michael Douglas, Sidney Poitier, Jodie Foster and Sean Connery and a very long list of other legends. Since 1953, the D.W. Griffith Award was one of the most prestigious prizes second to the Oscars, given for lifetime achievement to such cinematic luminaries as Frank Capra, Orson Welles and Alfred Hitchcock. Few people on the east coast are as well-connected as Roy, who will be working to bring top talent behind and in front of the cameras for the Studio in both the New York and at the studio. Roy was a 30- year member of the National Board of Review of Motion Pictures. He wrote for the oldest film journal in the United States, Films In Review (established in 1919) for over 20 years before purchasing the magazine in 1996, which he still owns, is still editor-in-chief and for which David Rosler now serves as Special Contributing Editor. Appropriate for the studio, one of Roy's all-time favorite motion pictures is The Ten Commandments, and he is pleased to be contributing his considerable skill and talent to a "very worthwhile and extremely exciting project".
Michael Prescott - Additional Screenplay Material
While Writer/Producer/Director David Rosler continued to expand and fine-tune the Orbiter screenplay, David reached out to his old friend, New York Times bestselling thriller novelist Michael Prescott, who agreed to join forces with David, helping to increase the range and suspense of the story. Michael's flair for creating imaginative scenarios to build audience suspense and excitment is well-documented in his many very successful crime and thriller novels. Like David and Roy, Michael is a fan of the works of Ray Harryhausen, George Pal and the best of the genre thrillers; in other words, this team understands the genre, and in a thriller like Orbiter, it helps immeasuably when all hands are on the same page and extremely gifted in their areas of expertise, something no one should assume is happening from the mainstream Hollywood product, frankly. The Orbiter screenplay looks to be shaping up as the finest and most intense story put to screen in ages. Michael is not only a New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author but is deservedly currently one of the top-selling ebook authors in the United States.

Lonny Buinis - Technical/Scientific Adviser
Astronomical expert Lonny Buinis is one of David Rosler's oldest and closest friends. A small observatory was recently named after Lonny, so well-respected is he in his field. With degrees in physics, computer sciences and mathematics, he ran one of the most technologically advanced planetariums in the United States. Lonny is also a ranking member of the International Astronomical Artists Association. As The studio's science adviser, Lonny will make sure that all technical and scientific facts and references in the studio's motion pictures are one-hundred-percent accurate, and even the science fiction is, technically speaking, all science and no fiction. It was their collaboration which resulted in David Rosler's extremely successful laserdisc series for the planetarium industry, “Special Effects Alive” regarded the world over as the best-ever product of its kind. Already Lonny's expertise has helped craft one of Orbiter's most surprising and exciting plot twists. Lonny is a popular and much-sought-after speaker at scientific shows and conventions, sometimes speaking to audiences in the largest venues. Obviously respected and much-admired within the astronomical scientific community, Lonny and can be relied upon to make sure the studio's often scientific aspects are grounded and accurate.
