Astron-6 is a Canadian film production and directing company founded in 2007 by Adam Brooks and Jeremy Gillespie.[1][2] The company later expanded to include Matt Kennedy, Conor Sweeney and Steven Kostanski, who are now equal partners in the company. Astron-6 is known for producing low-budget, 80's-centric, independent movies that often combine horror with comedy. The company was also the focus of the 2012 documentary No Sleep, No Surrender, which details the making and production of their 2011 film Father's Day.[3]

Gillespie and Kostanski directed the 2017 horror film The Void, intended as a departure from Astron-6's more comedic work. The film showcases more of Kostanski's creature and practical effects as seen in Astron-6's earlier films.
