I'm a big fan of science fiction films - when they are done well. And although I'm not a huge admirer of short films, the trailer for Seed looks pretty sweet indeed.
The film was directed, co-written and co-produced by Tyson Wade Johnson, who shot to fame with "Exist" in 2011.
Apparently, the movie is still in production so it will be a while before the film can be seen in its entirety. The official synopsis is as follows:
"In the year 2071 A.D. Technology has lead the human race to the discovery and early stages of colonization on an Earth-like planet named Gaia. This planet is capable of sustaining human life. Midway through the migration process, astro-bioligist Thomas Kamp is sent to explore an unknown region dubbed ‘The Void’, where powerhouse-corporation Gravicorp United has lost track of several aircrafts and A.R.M.D’s.
"Alone in The Void, Kamp finds himself trapped, and discovers ill-fated horrors that would immediately discontinue the chances of human life on this planet. With no direction and no outside contact, Kamp battles to survive The Void so he can put a halt to colonization before it’s too late."
Frankly, after watching the trailer, I came away with an "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" vibe, only in this case humans are invading another planet - even if the invasion might be unintentional.
