Kickstarter sees a lot of campaigns for film projects, and many don’t get the funding they need. Vivarium is a proposed movie from LoneShark Studios, who are asking for almost $60,000 to fund. Unfortunately, they have one 6 days left, and only a 1/3 of the way to their goal. The premise is pretty intriguing, and they’ve made a concept trailer, so check it out after the break.
Our feature film VIVARIUM is an ENVIRONMENTAL SCI-FI THRILLER. In a dystopian future, all plant life on Earth has been wiped out due to biochemical warfare. The only way to experience nature is in Vivarium, a perfect virtual reality of pristine Earth, as it once was. It’s a near-hopeless future where the ghost of Mother Nature’s gifts have been twisted, corporatized into a luxury.
The film explores the dynamics of humans in a world devoid of sunlight, fresh air, and the beauty of a flower. And more importantly it reveals how far heroes will go to get it all back.
The story follows Aemon Winter, an aging bounty hunter old enough to remember real wilderness from his younger days, who must use his antiquated skills to track a dangerous hacker through this digital playground. As he hunts, he uncovers a dark secret that the corporate owners of Vivarium will do anything to hide, which could change the course of human history.
