About

This project is a 120 minute feature film, intended for Theatrical release and Competitions such as the Cannes Festival du film. 

The story begins in 1960 with the discovery of a 13,000 year old satellite, orbiting the Earth.  A British Astronaut was sent up to investigate the Satellite. He disappeared, as did the Satellite. Forty years later, he crash lands in the Egyptian desert. But he he is not the same man. He is on a mission that will destroy humanity as we know it. Only a team of Special Agents can stop him. They track him down across, Egypt and the Sudan, until the final confrontation at Lalibela, Ethiopia. Where the fate of mankind will be decided. As written on the Tablet of Destiny.

For the first time ever, in any motion picture you will see Egypt, Hueyatlaco in Mexico, Lembayeque in Peru and the Pyramids of Antarcticia as they really where 13,000 years ago. An advanced civilization far beyond what we have today.

This will be achieved by using a small team of CG and Compositing Artists, using NUKE and MODO and will take 12 weeks. The majority of the movie will be on location in  three concentrated areas, Egypt, (Cairo), Sudan (Meroe), Ethiopia (Axum, Lalibela). Four weeks shooting.

These are well known tourist destinations and carry no risk of danger. I will be shooting the film live amongst the real backdrops of real people using a variety of HD cameras. This is a chase movie that will be moving quickly through a real environment, boats, quad bikes and cars. I shot some test footage out in Egypt and everyone is very helpful and very willing to help out.

There are two sets that require construction. One is the 'Hall of Records' located beneath the Sphinx. The second is a Neanderthal cryogenic storage facility. These will be constructed in Egypt using local Labor. And will save a considerable amount of money.

As for the cast there is no point naming a cast and crew until I know the final budget. If I raise the minimum amount then it will be an unknown cast. If I raise beyond the minimum amount then I can look at casting name actors. A dream choice would be Viggo Mortenson, Jim Caviezel.

Risks and challenges

The likely problems that may need to be overcome are delays in Set construction, injuries to lead actors and weather.
