Worth Watching: Sci-Fi Short 'Seed' Trailer by Tyson Wade Johnston
These are not our rules. What better to watch on a sunny summer weekday than some indie science fiction? Our friend Jeremy recently emailed a link to this trailer for a sci-fi short called Seed, directed by Tyson Wade Johnston, who you might recall also directed the sci-fi short Exist last year (see on YouTube). Justin Zachary stars as a merc in this short set on a planet called Gaia, the rest you'll have to see for yourself. This not only looks like it has some great low budget sci-fi effects (honestly), but it seems like there's actually an eerie horror story to it, and I'm intrigued to check it out. Plus, we love featuring up-and-coming filmmakers.
Set in the year 2071, where technology has brought mankind to the brink of colonization on a planet named Gaia, one man takes on an isolated mission and discovers unearthly horrors that could bring an end to life on this planet. Seed is directed by Tyson Wade Johnston (website), of the short film Exist previously, an an "emerging creative film industry talent based in Los Angeles, CA." The trailer and site say that it's being officially released in August 2012, so be on the lookout. There's already a nice poster, plus the trailer has an official rating, apparently.
