Watch this Sci-Fi Short Film called SOMNOLENCE
Hey gang! Check out this awesome new sci-fi short film created by aspiring filmmaker, Patrick Kalyn. The film is called Somnolence, and Kalyn just finished production on it.
According to /Film, "Kalyn is an Emmy nominated visual effects animator, who has worked on films such as Avatar, District 9, I, Robot, King Kong, X-Men: The Last Stand, 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer, Jumper, The Water Horse, and television series like Stargate SG-1. Filmed for $10,000 in 2 days in Vancouver, BC using Red Cameras, the short is part of a larger story that Kalyn hopes to develop into a feature film (a treatment is written)... Sound design was done at Skywalker sound, and the score has been created by video game composer Jesper Kyd (Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, Hitman, Robotech: Invasion, Assassin’s Creed)."
There is definitely some talent here. I enjoyed watching the short. I thought the concept was fun, it was shot well, and special effects were solid. It will be interesting to see if a studio picks up on it, and helps turn it into a feature film.
Here is the official plot synopsis:
By 2031, the Earth has exhausted its supply of fossil fuels. With the world on the verge of collapse, nations from around the globe form a coalition called AREN; the ‘Manhattan Project’ of clean self-replenishing energy. When an experiment goes wrong that threatens the world’s existence, David Canterra and a team of elite soldiers are sent on a mission to stop the anomaly. What they find is a mind-bending alternate dimension, and their only way home is through the fabric of time.
