I am going back to school this year for 8 months to make a 3D short. I basically have 8 months to pull this off which is probably impossible. This is the story I have so far, and I need to make roughly 2 minute short out of this. Most of it is story so far, hopefully you all can help me make it a little interesting. I am also interested in collaborating with others on this.
Here it is, first draft:
[b]Working Title: Abandoned 2303[/b]
The year is 2303, on an abandoned and dieing planet earth.
200 years ago the human race was forced to abandon the planet and colonize in a neighboring solar system 20 light-years away. A massive asteroid crashed onto Earth and the impact forced it out of its original orbit drastically changing the environmental conditions as such that it would not be able to support life. Those who were confident of the ill fate of Earth managed to escape to another planet that was very promising in sustaining human life. Planet Gliese 581 C, located in the Gliese system is now known as Earth 2 and has become the new home for human life. However, this new home has brought forward new problems and challenges,
Present day, the surviving human race is dieing from a devastating plague that is native to their current environment. Resources are severely limited and the majority of the population is sick. A small team of scientists and a mercenary take it upon themselves to head back to earth on a small ship to try and find a trace of un-affected human dna which holds the possible cure for all humanity and hope for a brighter future. Their greatest hope lies with the possibility that the dna survived throughout all these years, as impossible as it may seem, this small team is very determined and know that this may be their only chance to save their kind.
In orbit the team detected a strong trace of possible dna in a small ruined city somewhere in what used to be North America. They land their ship close to the city and send the mercenary to find and retrieve the dna sample. To their surprise they have come back to a planet that looks nothing like they expected, it has been re-manufactured.
What the team doesnt know is, although all intelligent life on the planet is non-existent, some helper androids that were left behind managed to survive and evolve past their original programming. And they are very bitter about being left behind.
These small androids have managed to survive for 200 years with whatever the humans left behind. They have made a small community inside the ruined city, and the only piece of human dna on the planet is nested right inside their little mechanical heaven. This dna has been preserved perfectly by the androids inside an airtight device and is placed inside a special chamber deep inside the city. The dna is found on an worn out teddy bear that must have belonged to a child.
Our hero, the mercenary must go into the center of the city, not knowing of the danger ahead of him, and retrieve the dna sample. However, once he gets there, he will encounter resistance from some very old friends.
