Trexton / Proof of Concept

NOTE: This is a proof of concept (a teaser film developed on a very limited budget that’s created to show studios what that production team can accomplish).
I've produced it entirely on my own to pitch the concept to agents, distributors and investors.


In a dark future, a soldier fights to save his family and the World from a mysterious alien menace.

In the year 2128 a global war between two super powers is fought by armies of drones. After five long years of battles, most of humanity is destroyed and the drones are left to capture and kill all the remaining humans. Trexton is a soldier in one of the few human units in the US army. While fighting on the field, he loses communication with his headquarters and makes the decision to return home and lead his family to a safe remote place. There, they build a secret shelter where they try to stay alive in the wild. But then something goes terribly wrong...
