Darkwave:Edge of the Storm

One hundred years from now, the DARKWAVE has left mankind stranded across the galaxy. On a distant planet, New Earth 72, a young family is on the run, escaping from the clutches of the Ministry. David, Sarah, and their young son Ben, stumble across a burning outpost. Starving and fatigued, they risk capture to stop and search for supplies, only to discover the terrifying cause of the outpost’s destruction.

Director Statement

Thank you for considering Darkwave: Edge of the Storm. This is a calling card short, aimed at attracting major investment to launch and distribute the Darkwave franchise. It has already been over ten years in development and continues to grow.

This 24 minute instalment is a small story with large repercussions in the Darkwave universe, but ultimately, its about family and loss. In this universe, families have been separated across the Galaxy in the blink of an ye, when one moment we were travelling faster tan light across the Stars, to the next where suddenly we lost that ability. Loss is as much an earthly emotion as it is a galactic one.

I have endeavoured to produce this short with the highest productions I can manage. It is my hope that my efforts will allow you immerse yourself into this new and lonely universe, one with little help... except for one.. a super sentient star-fighter crewed by a young man and woman are about to change all that.
