Storyline

Serving as a prequel to the MASS EFFECT game series,"Red Sand" is set 35 years before the time of Commander Shepard and tells the story of the discovery of ancient ruins on Mars. Left behind by the mysterious alien race known as the Protheans, the ruins are a treasure trove of advanced technology and the powerful Element Zero, an energy source beyond humanity's wildest dreams. As the Alliance research team led by Dr. Averroes (Ayman Samman) seeks to unlock the secrets of the ruins, a band of marauders living in the deserts of Mars wants the ruins for themselves. Addicted to refined Element Zero in the form of a narcotic nicknamed "Red Sand" which gives them telekinetic "biotic" powers, these desert-dwelling terrorists will stop at nothing to control the ruins and the rich vein of Element Zero at its core. Standing between them and their goal are Colonel Jon Grissom (Mark Meer), Colonel Lily Sandhurst (Amy Searcy), and a team of Alliance soldiers tasked with defending the ruins at all ...

good
30 October 2012 | by cdrom37811See all my reviews

This was good work for a fan film. Better than most I've seen. The camera work was great, the effects looked like they were almost straight from the game they were so good. The sounds were decent, as was the music score. Overall, my only misgiving was that it was only 10 minutes long. I wanted there to be more.

Also, I liked the fact that you got the voice actor of the Mass Effect games to play your main Character. That has to be one touch that no other fanfilm has gotten before.

I would recommend this video to any real fan of the Mass Effect game series,or even just people who want to know more.
