About

My goal is to create a video short that is both aesthetically and audibly mesmerizing. The story is set on a distant planet where a band of girls who escaped from nuclear holocaust on Earth battle killer drones left behind by an ancient civilization that once inhabited the planet.   

I plan to shoot girls against barren looking landscapes and against any ruins we can find as they engage in laser fire battle against a drone that stalks them. 

Audio will be minimal and easily dubbed in afterwards because girls wear full faced helmets so there are no lips to match up with dialogue. 

I will employ a drone with HD camera, possibly a Phantom 4, along with a drone operator and camera operator. I will employ two additional cameramen. No audio will be required on location.

I will handle all audio and sound effects and music. I am a musician and will use and create my own original soundtrack.

Some shots of the girls will be done green screen. I will employ a CGI expert to create some spaceship interiors.

Some of the scenes will be flashbacks the girls have of days on earth showing times with their husband or boyfriend and will also show the turmoil and conditions that led up to all out nuclear holocaust that destroyed all civilization on Earth.

I will do all editing using Sony Vegas Pro and I will do all or most of the special effects using Adobe After Effects.

I have a small handful of professional models who like this science fiction themed concept and who are on-board with it, and they are all quite stunning in their own unique way.

Hoping to create artistically visually captivating scenery along with nice melodic tempos that swing from peaceful and pleasant to driving and intense.

Here are some links to some Drone Attack samplers of mine:

This is what I wish to do. If you like the concept then I humbly ask you to please support my project.

Risks and challenges

One of the beauties of this project is that it is a very small production and I personally will be doing all or the vast majority of post so these costs will be minimal. I already have a camera crew and equipment so this cost will be minimal. The largest production expenses will be paying the models for their time and expenses surrounding shooting at remote locations.

Shoots should be easy because no rigid script involved and most often only scenes with solo actress vs the drone that will be seeking her out and circling her and buzzing her from above.

The sky is the limit.
