TOMB: Anything But a Nice Caribbean VacationMay 11th, 2015
The Caribbean is all about sun, fun and downing a few adult beverages, if that’s your pleasure. But filmmaker Nick Attin wants to change that perception by making the first sci-fi flick ever filmed entirely in the Caribbean.
Attin is a native of Trinidad, and his movie, titled Tomb, will be shot completely in his home country. He’s trying to raise money to finish the work, but what’s really interesting about this project is that the movie itself is almost all already filmed. In many crowdfunded projects, you have to look at a lot of concepts, but Attin’s lengthy trailer contains real footage. That means if you like what you see you’ll be much more interested in investing.
The basic premise is pretty ingenious – an astronaut traveling through deep space is caught in a wormhole and ends up in the afterlife. The preview, however, is a bit hit and miss. There are some great interstellar visuals and super sharp animation, but the writing can be clunky. All in all, it has a lot of potential, and for someone who wants to say that they helped make movie history, this could be a great effort to be a part of.
