The Rising

About the film

The earth has been destroyed. The last of the human race have travelled to an uninhabitable planet. Digging into the ground below their ship they have built a mighty city where the city’s level you are born on, dictates your class and your future.

On the bottom levels they mine a lifesaving substance that unfortunately accelerates the aging process for the miners, but on the top levels they live long lives in opulence.

When the Head Planner’s daughter is kidnapped by a group of rebels, a mid-level regulator is sent to the lower levels to save her. But what if she doesn’t want to be saved? What if the Head Planner is hiding a dark secret and everything is not what it seems?

This project will be filmed in AIE’s future virtual production studio.
