Lovers Go To Mars is a short sci-fi comedy directed by Keon Abbott and Nico Rinciari. The script takes two lovers behind the control board of a spaceship headed to Mars on its countdown for lift off.  All the while they are re-living the painful drama of their relationship and questioning the stupid reason as to why they’re still together in a terribly awkward situation.

This absurdity of the script made me think about the irony prevalent in 1960’s-80’s retro-futurist posters, and how their dreamy visions of an exotic future on other planets turned into a false ideal.

The purpose of this sequence is to use the style as a way to interpert these cartoonish characters, and the humor behind their naivety.
