Co-Director Ben Foster chatted with us at the 2017 Austin Film Festival about his sci-fi adventure film, “Time Trap.” We learned what it was like filming in an actual cave in Texas, what inspired the film and more. Check out the full interview below and our review of “Time Trap” here.
About “Time Trap”
When his mentor Professor Hopper (Andrew Wilson) goes missing while exploring a remote system of deep caverns in rural Texas, Taylor ( Reiley McClendon) organizes an informal search party with his best gal pal Jackie ( Brianne Howey) and fellow student (and crush) Cara ( Cassidy Gifford); tagging along are Cara’s younger sister, Veeves (Olivia Draguicevich), and her geeky friend Furby (Max Wright). Intrigued by the find, the group descends into the caverns, and in their search for Hopper they encounter a number of strange phenomena. It soon becomes apparent that the impossible exists—a rift in the space-time continuum where time passes differently within the cave than on the surface, and they are not the only ones to have become stuck there. With no hope for rescue, they descend further into the caverns, discovering one of the most coveted legends in history, only to be caught in the crossfire for its control.

Originally hailing from Pennsylvania, Jackie has called Austin home since choosing to attend the University of Texas, where she graduated with a degree in multimedia journalism. She loves spending time with her dog, writing about pop culture in all its forms and spending time with friends – eating, drinking and doing trivia.
