I'm new here, and I am working on a script for the screen. What I have now is a man who the audience believes to be in space, but he is really isolated on earth. Now anyway, suppose an infant was put to sleep for 20 years, thus alienating dependence on parents or other role models. The point is to make the audience think the guy is in space, so after twenty years the guy would be 2.7 billion miles from earth, and as a result it would take 4.25 hours for a transmission to be received. Now anyone can see that this would present a problem in the film medium. Is it possible to have a short transmission time?
