Oceanus: Act One

2015 | Science Fiction | Short Film | More info on IMDb


An underwater adventure set in the near future

In the year 2029, on the verge of an amazing breakthrough in whale communication, a married marine biologist and aquatic engineer are caught in a catastrophic global disaster that separates them from each other and their spectacular underwater city.

I was hooked at the middle point of the act... and found myself counting down the minutes wondering where this short would end and how it might end. I hope they release something more... if not, I will be creating plot and narrative in my sleep for years to come. Please bring the rest to us... this is great stuff

Directed by: Jeffrey Morris Starring: Sharif Atkins, Bruce Davison, Megan Dodds
