Must Watch: Vibrant Teaser Trailer for 'Telescope' Sci-Fi Short Film
"As men tied to the Earth, we dream of visiting the stars... As men tied to the stars, we will dream of returning home..." Wow. This looks really cool. We're excited to be the first to debut this new teaser trailer for an upcoming sci-fi short called Telescope, featuring some rad visuals. Directed by Collin Davis & Matt Litwiller, the short is a visually stunning story set 170 years in the future about a cosmic archaeologist who journeys through space and time to capture evidence of a forgotten Earth. Fellow filmmaker Wes Ball of Ruin, currently directing Maze Runner, is lead VFX artist on the film, helping it get that sleek sci-fi polish. For only a 40-second trailer, this looks great, can't wait to see the full short - debuting here on FS.net soon.
Here's the first trailer for Collin Davis & Matt Litwiller's sci-fi short film Telescope, in high def on Vimeo:
Synopsis from Vimeo: The year is 2183. Earth is dead. With all evidence of organic life lost, a cosmic archaeologist travels faster than light into deep space to capture images of the once vibrant planet. When his vessel is damaged he must take matters into his own hands, risking his life to witness humanity’s lost home. Telescope, which runs 10 minutes shot in glorious 4K, is directed by Collin Davis & Matt Litwiller, written by Eric Bodge, with cinematography by Travis Labella. "With the help of many friends, telescope was completed in in 2013 in Los Angeles." For those who want to see more, a planned feature-length version will be looking for a home. Check out another shot from the short which we'll be premiering in a few weeks:

Doubling as an experiment with new camera technology, Telescope was shot on the Sony F65, utilizing a true 4K workflow from camera to finished DCP. "By taking advantage of some exciting new technologies like the Academy Color Encoding System (ACES) and the OpenEXR format, we feel the film showcases what’s possible at the extremes of modern imaging," explained director Collin Davis. Stay tuned for the full short.
