Worth Watching: First Trailer for Sci-Fi Indie 'Sol' from Ben Carland
"We have no idea where we are… Nobody does." Sol is a sci-fi motion picture event set in the distant future on a hostile alien planet. It follows a group of ambitious young adults as they embark upon the prestigious Sol Invictus competition in a quest to win fame and glory. Unfortunately, they got lost. This is a trailer for an odd, but fascinating indie sci-fi flick, debuted recently over on Apple. I love the score, it has an intriguing premise, but honestly, it still looks/sounds a bit too student-filmy. One of the young actors in this is Caleb Courtney, older brother of Joel Courtney, the lead kid from Super 8. I'm intrigued, at least. Check this out!

Far in the future, a group of young adults stranded on a hostile alien planet have no hope of getting home.
Sol was both written and directed by American filmmaker Benjamin Carland, a filmmaking graduate of Florida State University making his feature debut after working on the short The Forgotten Future. This was mostly shot in North Carolina on a Red One camera with an estimated budget of around $250,000. The Obsidian Collective, co-founded by Ben Carland, produced Sol, but is currently looking for distribution, so this has no release date yet.
