Synopsis

Mac, a grief stricken miner, wakes to find himself injured on the desolate planet Carmentis.

At odds with his own emotions and EVE, the AI that controls his space suit, he struggles to reach both physical and mental safety.

Exacerbating the situation is an oncoming eclipse that threatens Mac’s life with freezing temperatures.

Mac’s journey pushes him through a touch physical and emotional journey as he is forced to confront and overcome his personal grief in order to survive.

Creating Carmentis

“A short film like this has never really been attempted in Western Australia, especially not at this level.

The film was incredibly challenging for all involved, pushing our team to go above and beyond what they were used to and I am very proud of every single person that worked on the film and the results we achieved.”
