Storyline

One hundred years from now, Starlight crystals enable faster than light travel. But a terrible phenomenon called the DARKWAVE inexplicably damages the crystals, leaving millions stranded across the galaxy. Twenty years later and it is a desperate and frightening place ruled by an oppressive authority under martial law. On a distant planet, a young family is escaping capture in a stolen military truck. David, Sarah and their young son Ben, stumble across a burning outpost. Tired, hungry and risking capture, they are forced to stop and search for supplies, only to discover a live Starlight crystal - too dangerous even to touch. As they search for supplies, a deafening noise of an approaching ship forces them to race back to the truck and escape only to find their Son missing. As the ominous bird shaped fighter hovers over them, The Ministry's reason for pursuing them is spectacularly revealed. Written by Darren Scales

Intriguing sci-fi short
3 November 2016 | by bcwatsonSee all my reviews

It could be used as a long teaser/trailer for a full-length movie. I want to see more. This would totally work as a serial in the theme of old radio series where you turn in next time to continue the story and find out what happened to the characters. The video does leave a lot of questions which it seems to be taken for granted the audience already knows the answers to (unless they were thinking of introducing the backstory through flashbacks of some sort. I thought the special effects were pretty well done. Acting is not terrible and the visual quality is very good. The level of special effects reminded me of early Battlestar Gallactica. If you like sci-fi, give this a look. I found it on YouTube.
