The Man from Earth (2007) Poster


The whole movie was shot using 2 Panasonic DVX100 camcorders, which probably explains the overall grainy look of the film.
The film is loosely based on the Transylvanian legend of Krim Rosü (Krim Red in English), a man said to have lived thousands of years.
The last work from screenwriter Jerome Bixby before his death.
There were no deleted scenes for this movie, only 3 deleted lines, as explained by Director Richard Schenkman in the DVD commentary.
The director, Richard Schenkman, has always appeared in a cameo in his previous movies. He wanted to appear as a mover but due to the need to choreograph the cast for the moving scene, he reluctantly decided to fore-go his cameo and instead hired another person to be the 2nd mover.
Tony Todd was the first person cast for this movie.
Richard Schenkman has never met the scorer Mark Hinton Stewart who lives in the UK. They communicated via telephone throughout the process.
The Tony Todd character, "Dan", mentions that he is gonna go home and watch Star Trek. Tony Todd appeared in seven episodes and one video game of Star Trek since 1990, John Billingsley starred in Star Trek: Enterprise and screenwriter Jerome Bixby wrote several episodes of the original series.
