Counter Clockwise Trailer

"You ever do that? Visual something about the future…" Check out this trailer for a very small independent film called Counter Clockwise, an example of compelling sci-fi being made on a shoestring budget. The film is sci-fi thriller meets dark comedy about a scientist who accidentally invents time travel and is zapped six months into the future. He finds himself in a twisted time where his wife and sister are murdered and he's the main suspect. It kind of has a Brick meets Primer vibe to it, and I'm quite interested to see the entire thing. Lots of fancy panning shots. Starring Michael Kopelow, Devon Ogden, Kerry Knuppe, Joy Rinaldi, Caleb Brown and Frank Simms. Give it a look below and tell us if you're intrigued as well.

Here's the first official trailer for George Moïse's Counter Clockwise, from Vimeo (via Quiet Earth):

Description from Vimeo: "A sci-fi thriller about a scientist who accidentally invents time travel and travels six months into the future. He finds himself in a sinister upside down world where his wife and sister are murdered and he's the main suspect. He's forced to go back in time to uncover the mystery surrounding their deaths." Counter Clockwise is directed by American indie filmmaker George Moïse, making his feature debut after a number of shorts previously. The screenplay is written by Michael Kopelow and George Moïse, from a story by Walter Moise. As far as we know this hasn't played at any festivals yet. Artsploitation Films will release Counter Clockwise direct to DVD starting on October 4th this fall. Anyone interested?

    I'm game.
  • Looks very well done.

    I love the reference to The Fly.

    I would love to make a low budget movie. Of course, if anyone trust me with big budget, I won't refuse. And I promise, the result will be the same. But anyway, this looks a bit intriguing. Although, low budget doesn't make it more interesting. In fact, I'm afraid this looks like an ordinary movie with less money than usual ...
    • George Moïse
      ha! Well, we didn't have a big budget. But the movie is far from ordinary. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
      • shiboleth
        Well, I just might do that. And if I don't forget, I'll tell you back what I think. I respect everyone's true effort to do something good. So, if I was too harsh about the trailer, I'll let you know that after I see the movie, ok?
        • George Moïse
          Ha, no problem. Be as harsh as you want! I destroy movies for no reason just like everyone else
  • Terry Craig
    I like the aesthetic and cinematography, but I'm not convinced this has anything to offer story-wise that we haven't already seen in Primer/ Triangle/ Timecrimes/ Coherence.
    • George Moïse
      I haven't heard of Triangle, and I haven't seen Coherence yet, but I did rip off a tiny bit of Primer, even though I hate the movie. The absolute most boring use of time travel as a movie device. I love Timecrimes though and freely ripped that off!
      • Terry Craig
        Hey, I don't think I've had a filmmaker respond to a comment of mine about their film before! Heh, I guess you can't hate Primer that much if it influenced you a bit (but I get what you mean; the technicalities kind of overshadow the story). Anyway, I dig the visual style you've accomplished with this film, and I wish ya all the best!
  • Jay Hollywood
    Seen its, its fucking great, really surprising. Best under super low budget Sci Fi film I've seen maybe.
