Mosquito: Behind the Scenes Preview

Mosquito: Behind the Scenes Preview is a comedic parody of Joss Whedon’s sadly short-lived “Firefly” television show. Clips and interviews with the cast and crew accentuate this humorous sneak peak at another up and coming, yet doomed to failure, science fiction/western series.

Based on the DVD featurette “Here’s How it Was,” this short was filmed and produced by a crew in and around Brandon, Manitoba, Canada, between May 9th and June 15th, 2005.

Directed by: Nathan Town

Nathan won the Best Director Award at the 2004 NSI National Exposure Amateur Movie Contest for his short Surprise Visit.
His next project, Untamed Suburbia, premiered at the 2005 Vancouver Celebration of Independence.

SONG LYRICS

Take my dog, take my catWestern without cowboy hats
Look at me I’m on TVYou can’t take this show from me
Take our doctor, make him squealI’m told our whore is quite a deal
We say Zed instead of ZeeYou can’t take this show from me
They’re airing baseball yet againWe might not break episode ten
But you can’t take this show from me
