SSF: “Azarkant”

SSF: “Azarkant” November 23, 2015

And now for something not-animated and not-cute. In other words, something entirely different. Something sci-fi and and darkly atmospheric and pretty scary. Great “proof-of-concept” work, even though I’m not sure that’s what its creator intended. (Something about the look and mood really reminded me of the “Exploring an Unknown and Dangerous Space Ship” scene from Alien. Also, the accompanying website had this wonderful little tidbit, buried humbly away from prying eyes: “This short film is completely done by me, through such programs as the 3D max, MentalRay, Photoshop, AE.” And also, “I’m self-taught.” Awesome.)

In the future, a team of astronauts are sent on a ten year journey to a distant planet to find new life. On their way, they encounter a large, abandoned spaceship that is drifting in the orbit of a mysterious planet. They board the ship with anticipation of the great discoveries to uncover inside. However, they do not know what terrible secret this spacecraft keeps — a nightmarish threat which is far bigger and scarier than anything they could have imagined.
