The Last Man Sci-Fi Short Film

"A soldier without a war is just a man." We're always on the hunt for unique short films that might have something new to offer, and this may be one to take a closer look at. One of the many shorts premiereing at the Film4 FrightFest in London is The Last Man, from up-and-coming filmmaker Gavin Rothery who is making his directing debut after working as visual effects supervisor / concept artist / graphic designer on Duncan Jones' stellar sci-fi Moon. The teaser trailer doesn't reveal that much at all, but does hint at a bleak rain-soaked futuristic world where only one man remains to fight some kind of other-worldly force. Enjoy.

Here's the first teaser trailer for Gavin Rothery's short film The Last Man, in high def from Vimeo:

Thanks to our friends at HeyUGuys for the tip on this trailer. Synopsis for the short from FrightFest: "A soldier is awoken from stasis to find the world completely destroyed. Venturing into the wasteland he is faced with the devastating loneliness of being the last man alive." Starring Richard Glover, written/directed by Gavin Rothery, produced by Philip Herd. The music is composed by Charlotte Hatherley, who writes on her blog: "As a devoted Philip K Dick reader and avid fan of Sci-Fi film this has been the dream project for me to sink my cinematic teeth into." The Last Man is currently working its way through the festival circuit and will be released online sometime mid-2015. For more follow Gavin's official blog or find him on Twitter.
