The Surface (2015) - Amazing Science Fiction Thriller

To save the life of her dying son, Liz must venture to the desolate surface and face the monsters that drove mankind below.

Willem Kampenhout is a film director and producer. As a passionate storyteller, he seeks to imbue the story into every aspect of the film, and is comfortable in the most uncomfortable situations. He is continually finding new and unique ways to tell stories.

My short film The Surface was released on YouTube. Many questioned my sanity in this plan, as it was not even on my channel. Why I did this? Because this film was made to be seen. I chose to partner with the CG Bros Channel, who have built an awesome channel audience of 1,000,000+ subscribers. It wasn't made to earn money, but to show the world the talents of all the wonderful cast/crew who dedicated thousands of hours on this project. Seeing the response thus far has been inspiring, for nothing motivates me more than knowing that the stories we tell actually move the audience who watches it to tears. If you have 20 minutes and good audio, go watch this little film and let me know what you think - Willem Kampenhout
