“By the early 22nd century mankind had colonized many worlds. Faster than light travel was made possible by harvesting exotic matter from the eggs of the largest species mankind has ever seen. Those that take part in the hunt are mostly involuntary labor.”

It’s Moby Dick in space, guys. This movie needs to be made immediately.

Ruairi Robinson’s debut feature film, The Last Days on Mars, underwent full picture and sound post production here at Screen Scene and Ardmore Sound.
