Our mission

  • We bring you the best sci-fi you've never seen.

    Because big ideas do not need big budgets.

    Homemade Sci-Fi explores the rapidly-expanding galaxy of independent and DIY science fiction movies, web series, short videos and related mutations of the moving image.

    We are the future of (and in) film and TV.

  • Who are we? Why are we here?
    Excellent questions, Adm. Stockdale.

    DJ Bad Vegan wrote and directed the offbeat DIY sci-fi feature In-World War, currently in post-production. A life-long sf fan, he grew up reading sci-fi icons such as Jack Vance, Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein and Anne McCaffrey -- and worshipping Star Wars, Star Trek and the original BSG. He also produced the acclaimed underground feature, Quality of Life. (It's not sci-fi, but still watchable, believe it or not.) He also serves up practical, in-the-trenches tips and lessons for other ultra-low budget filmmakers at DIY Filmmaking Sucks.

    Ben Rubin is a scholar and a gentleman, currently in the MFA program for film at Columbia University. He also needs to write his bio. We're going to publicly shame him until he does so. Shame shame shame Ben Rubin. Shame.

    Nuala is a cat. There's really nothing more to it than that.

Our pledge to you
