Astron Speaks! For the first time in 36 years!

Today’s big project was audio-synching the 1976 Astron footage in preparation for its inclusion in future episodes of the Stormy Tempest series.

In 1976 (when this clip was produced) consumer-level film cameras had no audio capability; sound had to be recorded separately and then painstakingly “synched” in post-production.

No one has ever heard Astron speak… until today! And it only took us 36 years to make it happen! :)


The slate girl in the first clip is Rebekah Black! The heroine is Kelly Flood. The Warlord bad guys on the bike are Dennis Lewis and Ross Sturlin. Ross was a TV stuntman and also played “The Creature” in Roger Corman’s “Night of the Blood Beast”.  (Check out Ross’s IMDb page

Bill Greenman plays Astron. You can also see Bill Greenman kicking ass as The Shade in Bloodfiend from Outer Space and Bikini Bloodbait.
