Watch: Impressive Trailer for Brazilian Sci-Fi Short Film 'Lunatique'
This looks like a cool little sci-fi short worth waiting for. There's a trailer going around for a Brazilian sci-fi / post-apocalyptic short film called Lunatique, and it's impressive for only 60 seconds. The short is directed by cinematographer-turned-filmmaker Gabriel Kalim Mucci, and it's set in a gritty, desolate, ash-covered world. The story is about one lonely woman struggling to survive in this world, but she looks quite badass, kind of almost like Ripley from Aliens. This has some excellent production design and solid VFX work, I'm anxious to see more from it, hopefully sooner than later. We'll be watching for the unveiling of the full short.
The brief description from Vimeo: Lunatique is a short science fiction film about a lonely woman who struggles daily for survival in a post apocalyptic world. Lunatique is both written and directed by Brazilian filmmaker Gabriel Kalim Mucci, who previously worked as a cinematographer on the other short film Akai previously. The film was produced by Timore AV / Zeppelin Filmes from São Paulo, Brazil. This trailer was uploaded just a week ago, so we're not sure when the full-length short will be available online, but we'll definitely keep you updated. In the meantime - to see more short films, click here. Thoughts on this so far?

I agree wholeheartedly, Alex. Excellent production design and I loved the photography. Wanted to see more of the actress and how she fits into all this. Hope you find more footage and share it with us here. Thanks for this short bit though. I liked this a lot and wanted and still want to see more. Love the title too!

That was very nice viewing experience. I believe that a lot of people wish for themselves some piece of post-apocalyptic scenario. At least for some time. Which is kinda deceiving since nobody really wants it. And that's my problem with any apocalyptic narrative, it looks too good even when it look realistic since it's only a secret desire to be part of it. However, I can't say I am not interested in seeing this film sometimes. And it does looks somehow fresh ...

One day, I hope Alex features one of my short films... I'm getting better, but it's hard finding time to shoot and grow as a filmmaker. If anyone is interested, take a look. http://www.ragonfilms.com/new-page/

Photography is nice. But I hate experimental movies. They look like a non-sensical delirium made by a guy on LSD. Try to work with a screenplay that tells...a story. good luck.

Reminds me of the trailer for Battle of Los Angeles - brilliant trailer but the end result turned out to be crap. Hope this isn't similar....
