Welcome to Dead Space: Convergence Indie gogo page, home of the crowd funding. My name is Gustav Nikitin, and I 'm one of the creative leads behind this project. You most definitely haven't seen me on youtube or vimeo. Why? Because I 'm that type of guy who does all the work behind the camera, not in front of the camera. So far, I've been working on commercials, promo videos and other things. It is fun and challenging, but now I would love to do something different - make this short film, set in Dead Space universe.
I came up with the story couple years ago and since then it has been a dream of mine to bring it to life. The creative guy that sits inside me just never lets me go, always poking me with these awesome ideas that could be made. And now, I feel is the time to put all the creativity on the table.
The story starts out like this:
Darkness. Space.Death. A huge spaceship floating in the orbit. Suddenly we see something small, like speck of dust in comparison approaching it. USM Fenix, active crew of two people. Captain Kacey Fenix leading with a pilot - Drake. The mission - delivering technical assistance in communication device repair. That is the beginning of our story.
USM Fenix, the small carrier ship named after it’s captain, fly’s in to the docking bay. “Lights are on, yet nobody’s home, cap” delivers Drake with a smirk on his face. Smoke and debris raises as the Fenix lands on it’s “feet”.
Kacey knows that something is no right, her gut feeling never lies. While being in the cryosleep on the way here, she this dream wit her sister, holding her in her hands. It was summer, grass and trees were full of live…. And then it burned!! like her sister… It was I nightmare before wake up. She was quiet that day, her past was always standing behind her, never letting go.. now it was closer then ever.
Kacey got the gear and went out side. The silence was chilling. Hundred people on an empty space ship. There had to be somebody. She went to the end of docking bay where the main gate was. Unlocked. The doors opened….
I would love to tell you more, but that would be spoiling too much, and what fun is to know the ending of the movie before seeing it?
