TIN CAN is a feature-length science-fiction/drama film which follows the internal struggles of three astronauts on the first human journey to Mars. Stephen J. Maas wrote, edited, produced and starred in the film, as well as creating all special visual effects (practical and digital) and co-creating the intricately detailed and highly functional spacecraft set entirely inside his one-car garage.
