THE STORY SO FAR
The ice caps have melted. The air is filled with a poisonous smog. No land. No safety. Sam and Evan, along with their rescued cat, Hippo, pilot the scavenger Arken, a salvaging submarine. Together, they search the endless seas for organic life and raw materials to help rebuild their world.
Sam is still holding onto her past, trying to stay ever hopeful in the face of a ever darker reality. Evan, like a father, is trying to keep them safe and ever moving forward. Hippo has no idea what's going on...he's just a cat!
The suspense, mystery, and struggle unfolds in FATHOMS!
THE SCAVENGER ARKEN
WHAT'S THE TIMELINE?
Based on the animated storyboard sequence I have created, FATHOMS will be around 20 minutes long...so there is a lot to animate! I am starting full-on production as soon as Kickstarter wraps up. I will be animating through the summer and fall, then rendering, fixing things, and doing compositing in the winter. The goal is to complete the film by the end quarter one, 2012...sooner if possible! Part of the time will be involved in rendering...and a lot of the time will be involved in animating...it just takes time!
THIS IS WHAT FATHOMS WILL LOOK LIKE (FOR REALS)
WHO AM I?
