Check These Out: Promo Trailers for Indie Sci-Fi Flicks 'Plug' & 'C'
"I apologize unit, but you're beyond repairs." I was looking for a badass post-apocalyptic/sci-fi indie teaser trailer to post and I came across two, at first worried that I'd have to choose one or the other. But I decided the hell with it, I'll just run both - each one is pretty frickin' awesome! The first is a project called Plug from FX company Steambot Studios directed by David Levy - it's a teaser trailer for a short they're developing on their own. The second is a concept trailer (as in, sales pitch) for an artistic sci-fi flick called c (299,792 kilometers per second) - but the coolest part is that no CGI or greenscreen was used in the making of it. This very first one below does use CGI, but it's the one called c that does not. Check out both of the teasers!
Watch the full teaser trailer for Steambot Studio's Plug as originally featured on Twitch:
Here's the logline for Plug (via Vimeo), which seems oddly not exactly what we saw in the trailer: Leila, a spunky twenty year old on a quest for other life forms, finds her survival in jeopardy when she succeeds… Plug is a 15-minute short that will be sold as a book/DVD pack. You can find out more on the official blog.
Watch the concept trailer for Derek Van Gorder's c as originally featured on Quiet Earth:
Here's the logline for c (via Vimeo), which seems eerily exactly what we saw in the trailer: Set in the distant future, c tells the story of First Lieutenant Malleck (Winterson) and her radical attempt to salvage reason during an interplanetary cold war. There's also a big behind-the-scenes post about the film on their blog.
Stars Caroline Winterson, James Fauvell, Dan Region, and Xandra Stegmaier. I'm not sure of the status of c or if we'll see it anytime soon, as it only says it's "currently in development" at the moment. Derek says in a post: "I'm shooting on a shoe-string budget, so I’ve had to get creative with limited resources; a lot of the interior sets are built out of tape, milk crates, holes poked in cardboard, and tricks of light & depth-of-field. Expect some in-depth behind-the-scenes posts in the near future!" Watch that trailer kind of remind me of Serenity meets 2001 meets Sunshine, so I hope it lives up to all of those. Hope you guys liked seeing both of these! We'll do our best to keep you updated on the progress of each, but as always follow both of them, too!
