Two years ago, a team of filmmakers, led by Nicholas Militello, set out to create a short sci-fi movie. Using Canon DSLR cameras and a MacBook Pro, the project was finally completed. The team relied on a small budget of $13,000, along with advances in camera and software capabilities to create professional looking visual effects to bring their idea to life. Here’s the synopsis for the short film, titled The Sphere:
“In the not too distant future, Earth is occupied by a hostile alien race that’s aggressively searching for a missing alien artifact — a sphere that contains an infinite source of powerful energy. When a resistance fighter gains possession of the sphere, he races to unlock the energy it contains in order to eradicate the alien forces and return Earth to humankind.”
