Lunar Short Film Teaser Trailer

"I can fix all of this." Whoa. This looks really, really good. I just caught wind of a kick ass teaser trailer for a new sci-fi short film from Tyson Wade Johnston, a name you may not recognize yet but should be getting familiar with. Johnston is a talented up-and-coming filmmaker following the steps of Neill Blomkamp. His first short was called Seed, set on an distant alien planet, which we featured back in October. His next film is Lunar, set in the year 2057, about an outlaw sentenced to imprisonment on the Moon who tries to escape. The full short will be out later this summer, but this is an impressive tease with solid VFX work throughout.

Synopsis from Vimeo: "Set in Los Angeles City, 2057, an outlaw is captured and sentenced to a lifetime of imprisonment in the LUNAR penitentiaries. To reunite with his lost love, he must become the first convict to escape the corrupt system and return to Earth." Lunar is written & directed by filmmaker Tyson Wade Johnston, with cinematography by Will Mayer and music by Zach Lemmon. The cast includes Justin Zachary, David Agranov, Hugh Hinton III, Brendon Bradford, Nick Feld & Susanna Zachary. For more info, visit their Vimeo. Tyson has confirmed the finished short should be expected "in July/August!" Stay tuned.

I hope this is featured at Fantastic Fest. I'd love to see it on the big screen.

I liked the cinematography for Seed better. Great looking short though. Keep it up mr Johnston.

Stylistically polished and professional. But more importantly it packs an intruiging concept.
