Tyler Tweed Memorial Scholarship Fund



Over the holidays, the XO of Battlestar Raven-BFC 002, suffered a tremendous lost in his life when his son Tyler passed away. We kept it of the public’s eyes to give the family some privacy and time to deal with their lost. But as a parent, you can never really fully deal with the loss of a child. Even as time passes by, the hurt will still be there. Just not as fresh. All you can do is keep the memory of that child close to you.

Steve Tweed is my XO on Battlestar Raven and a friend. I do not call people a friend just like that. Many of my staff on Battlestar Raven, has been with me through thick and hard times since the group’s inception. That is how close and tight knit we are of a group. You do not have to be blood related to be a family. You just choose to do it because you feel it and act on it.

The reason for this post is that I would like for this community to come together for one of our very own and open their hearts into donating whatever you could spare, towards the memorial fund established in Tyler Tweed’s memory. Tyler was a diesel mechanic, and his scholarship will be for people who are interested in mechanics at Madison College. Tyler was a graduate of that program and loved working in the mechanical field. Tyler passed away on December 14th, 2022, at the age of 24 from complications from diabetes. All funds donated will be used to fund this scholarship.

He is a wonderful young man taken too soon from his parents and friend’s lives. Tyler maybe gone, but he will never be forgotten. Not by his immediate family and second family.

So Say We All!

The Stranded Warrior a 1978 Galactica Fan Film

Short Summary The Stranded Warrior

Are you tired of waiting for the TV and Movie producers to finally make a Classic Battlestar Galactica TV show or Movie?  I know we were, so we decided to do something about it.  We are Chris and Pete (aka The Tipsy Toaster and NY Pete) from the live Vodcast IFB Interfleet Broadcasting.  Together as lifelong Battlestar Galactica fans (Galactica nuts really) we are going to make an outstanding fan film with your help. 

Yeah, I know around every bulkhead is someone asking for cubits, or some used viper salesman haggling you.  So what makes us so special?  Well, glad you asked.  Over the years (yahrens) of our live broadcasting, we have interviewed tons of fans like you, some going the extra mile, some just doing what they can to fuel the fandom.  We have met so many talented and passionate people who want to help lend their expertise to this fan film.  We have built a rag tag fleet of fans and recruited talent for this project. We are confident with the right number of cubits (open palm smacks viper fuselage) you can bring some relief to those old school Battlestar Galactica yearnings.  And who knows, perhaps we can start a movement and show that the original 1978 Glen Larson Battlestar Galactica is still a viable product and has fans willing to watch. So, what do ya say?  This thing only has 45 years (yahrens) on it, so let’s take it for a spin!


How much will it cost? Well it depends.  We are looking for $7500 cubits to do a 20-minute bare-minimum production that will make any BSG fan proud.

We can do the bare minimum at this cost because we have a lot of volunteers for one. [Actually, we’re lucky that everyone is a volunteer.] These are talented people who work for a meal and the exposure, which is fantastic.  And we already threw in a couple of thousands of our own dollars to get the ball rolling.  We also scaled our production to fit the budget. The more cubits we get, the higher the quality production.  As you can see we are determined to do this but want to make the best product we can.  We sure hope you can help us.



But all said and done, we do have stretch goals That will increase the quality of the production. 

Goal 01 $7500
Seven thousand five hundred Cubits is the bare minimum and gets us a two-day shoot on location at a large building in New York with real actors and 1080 cameras.  Better than a Cellphone production in front of a sheet somewhere on the lower decks of the Galactica here! This also includes some costumes and props.

Goal 02 $9500
At nine thousand five hundred Cubits We can get a 20', and two 10' Green Screens backdrops to simulate inside of a Battlestar. (Renting a Battlestar or a building and constructing a set was way over our budget!)  

Goal 03 $11,000
At eleven thousand we will be able to rent three professional cameras and lenses for a two day on location shoot.  This will give us the ability shoot 6k and edit to 4k.  We will also be able to rent audio equipment like lavalier mics, shotgun mics, recorders and boom pole.

Goal 04 $13,000
At Thirteen thousand five hundred cubits, we will fly the main character in to film on location and drive the necessary equipment and green screen down to record scenes at a warehouse with a Real 1 to 1 scale viper not a cardboard cutout! 

Goal 05 $16,000
Sixteen Thousand cubits will give us the use of professional lights for the scenes and the green screen. Instead of using home made clamp lights and bulbs from the Cylon's garage.

Goal 06 $23,000+
Reaching this goal will give us a basic start for another 20+ minute part two of the Stranded Warrior.  Further funding will make on location shooting possible.  We will need to travel and find a western set or utilize the green screen we have from the first episode. This includes the backstory of Lacerta, Red eye and what happens to Martin!

Every cubit donated goes into the production, the more cubits donated the better the production.  Being a fan film, NO ONE MAKES MONEY from this project! It’s a showcase of Classic Battlestar Galactica talent, just about every other franchise has a strong Fan Film representation, now it’s our turn to fuel the fleet!

What’s in it for you?

We promise you this: if we meet the goals outlined above, we will provide the best fan film possible, using really talented people and quality equipment.  We included some perks so be sure to check those out.  From the custom screen worn helmets to custom hoodies to uniform items and screen credits.  Everyone who donates gets something.   

Can’t Donate?

We understand that not everyone is in a position to donate but if you can’t, help out by spreading the word.  Use those share tools provided here on Indiegogo and check out our progress on social media.
