Watch: Animatic Pitch for Awesome Sci-Fi Mech Project 'Chrononaut'
You are your own worst enemy. We often feature short films and other unique indie/do-it-yourself projects that are often the very beginning of a successful filmmaker's career. The latest project worth featuring is a sci-fi movie called Chrononaut, which is a feature project about a father and his daughter, involving time travel and giant robot mech suits and all kinds of crazy stuff. This video is short animatic (meaning none of the footage is actually animated) pitch to show any interested parties how cool this will look. I love the voiceover, there are a few cool shots, overall it's a strong pitch for a project I hope we one day do get to see.
Original synopsis for Chrononaut from Vimeo: A dead mother’s will instructs the estranged father and daughter to spread her ashes in a remote cave. Trapped inside, they find a futuristic safe house and a time machine capable of bringing her back. They must learn to work together to fight threats from their future and escape the cave alive. Chrononaut is a project by Zach Lipovsky and comes with a feature script by Lipovsky. Zach is a writer/producer/director and VFX guru most recently producing the found footage horror Afflicted, which we already recommend seeing. We'll be keeping an eye on this one next. Thoughts?

Great. Wish they didn't use such a recognisable song BUT looks like it has a lot of potential! Good luck with it.

The narration sounds like Tim Cook.

None other than Mr. Rogers.

I've watched it twice, and I still have no idea what it's about.
