"Refuge can't always be found in your own universe"
In a post apocalyptic world where humans are on the verge of extinction, a desperate physicist tries to find refuge for her family in a parallel universe... ours.
What is Nexus?
Nexus is an action-packed sci-fi short film in the style of The Matrix and Inception.
Lucy, a brilliant physicist, discovers a technology to open a physical connection (a Nexus) between two different places and between alternate universes.
We’ll actually follow two versions of Lucy, one from our reality and another from an alternate universe where a seemingly small decision she did ten years ago led to the end of the world as she knows it.
This is going to be a high-end short film.
Since we started this project and we started to share it, people got really excited and the project got bigger and bigger.
It's only thanks to that excitement (and my friend April) that we were able to get the amazing Gigi Edgley to play the lead role of Lucy.
Gigi is an amazing actress, best known for her role as Chiana in the Syfy international hit show Farscape,
She also had a leading role in other shows like the Australian series Rescue Special Ops and appeared in The Starter Wife on USA Network. She was also the host of Jim Henson's Creature Shop Challenge.

In the finished film, the sequences will be a combination of live-action stunts for the close ups and computer generated versions of the characters when they're in the air.
We're shooting the live-action stunts at Cirque School LA. Their walls and floors are blue, which is great for Visual Effects. Plus, they have all the mats, platforms, and other gear we need to do the stunts safely.
