Keep The Music Going

Poster for "Keep the Music Going," an award winning short film by Steven Hayet starring Holly Curran and Claire Frederiksen


Written for and recorded entirely on Zoom, Keep the Music Going is a story about the last two humans and their friendship, thousands of miles apart.

It’s been 734 days since the world ended and Commander Jessica Caldwell is alone on the International Space Station, playing music over the radio frequency for anyone on Earth who may have survived.

For the past 734 days, Jessica hasn’t received a response, but today, another woman is able to radio her back.
