Visually Stunning CG Animated Sci-Fi Short SUMER
I've got a fantastic CG short film for you to watch today called Sumer that has been officially released online. I had a chance to watch the film earlier this summer at the FilmQuest Film Festival. This is a beautifully animated movie with an intriguing plot that I think you're all going to like if you decide to watch it. The short was directed by Alvaro García, and this is a detailed synopsis:
For unknown reasons, the Earth's ionosphere has weakened dramatically during the course of the last century, resulting in the collapse of the entire ecosystem. Earth has become an increasingly hostile and uninhabitable place and with no shield to protect it, it is at the full mercy of meteors.
All animal and plant species perished decades ago. All that remains is one small group of humans who attempt to resist the hostility and hardness of the external environment from SUMER, the last hive city in the world, which has been specifically designed to keep the population alive through oxygen supply systems.
The media manipulates the available information in a manner that is purposely designed to keep people obsessed on the potential of the space exodus, letting any hope of prevailing on earth go.
A young boy, Hermes, lives alone in a compartment, the property of the government, which is located close to the wall that delimits the city, an area that is highly guarded by the SSW (SUMER Security Watchers).
While observing the desert from the roof of a building, Hermes suddenly sees something that grabs his attention…
Enjoy the short!
