"compassion, empathy, and forgiveness replaced with autonomy, selfishness, and animosity"
Alien Runner takes place in a post-apocalyptic time where humans have forgotten how to be human. Decades of fossil fuel consumption and pollution led people to worry more on how to get ahead for themselves rather than how to work with one another to fix the planet. Imagine a world that has little to no resources because we took our world for granted. Emotions such as compassion, empathy, and forgiveness quickly replaced with autonomy, selfishness, and animosity. The advent of these negative sentiments directly affected mother nature, and this is where our story begins.
"With each breath, the world takes a backseat to humans' innate desire to become A HYPER industrialized race."
Climate change makes Earth a less viable place to coexist. What happens when there is less harmony, and more clash?
97% of scientists agree that warming trends over the past century are very likely caused by human activity.
Global sea levels have risen 8 inches over the last century. The rate of rise has nearly doubled in the last two decades.
The average worldwide temperature has increased by 1.5 degrees fahrenheit compared to a century ago.
Our oceans are 30% more acidic compared to two centuries ago.

"Unique weather patterns, forest fires, uncharted terrains, etc., were challenges the cast/crew endured through production. All components were, in fact, incorporated into the film."
HONESTY. INTEGRITY. COMPASSION.
Alien Runner is about this alternative reality; keyword reality. Our mission was to build off the environment we currently reside in. The screenplay addressed many environmental concerns and every location our team shot at had some form of locale degradation due to man.
Another important component of the film was reviving and living through humanity. Though technology has helped humanity, it has also shadowed our ability to connect with one another consciously, spiritually, and authentically. Both crew and talent had to interact with the environment with just as much patience and compassion as with the characters in the movie.
