Friend, the short film from John Noble and members of the assorted Fringe family has arrived online.
Friend, starring Noble who produced the project with members of the Fringe crew, tells the story of a man dealing with grief.
Speaking to TV Guide, Noble said of the collective effort to make Friend a reality:
“The amazing thing about Friend was our entire production team was made up of Fringe crew. That’s what made it such a unique and personal project,” recounts Noble. “Our director was Fringe director of photography David Geddes; our editor was Ari Margolis, who created Fringe‘s wonderful online trailers; and our original music was composed by Jeremy Little, who contributed that wonderful cover of “If I Only Had A Brain” heard in ‘The Firefly’ episode from Season 3.” In addition, the actor says that “the cameramen, grips, lighting, sound, catering, script supervisor, makeup, hair, wardrobe, props — they all came from the Fringe family and brought this project to life. Jasika Nicole even designed and handmade the paper flowers used in the film. It was a family project in every sense.”
