"Absolom" Science Fiction Short: Teaser / Work-in-Progress

This is little teaser/work-in-progress for a sci-fi project I’ve been working on for the past few months, inspired by footage that Valentina Vee shot on a spaceship set and was kind enough to let me play with. I’ve got some music and sound effects laid out, though some SFX may be temporary. I’m hoping to be done with this thing in a week or two. I’ve still got one more CG shot do, some additional VFX for the live-action elements, and record a little dialogue. There’s not much dialogue as this thing will only end up being about a minute-and-a-half, but it teases a larger story. It’s why I think of this piece as less of a short and more of a conceptual “cold open.”
