Synopsis

In the war-torn reaches of deep space, tens of thousands of light years from Earth, three mercenaries investigate a distress signal coming from the empty, scorched metropolis world of Archon IV. They descend to the ruined planet's surface, seeking answers as to what destroyed this world, but danger lies waiting for them.


This video was made for the 2008 "4500 Digital Video Competition," which challenged high school filmmakers to write, shoot, and edit a short film in three days. Helios won the award for "Best Special Effects."
