Sci-Fi Flick Seeks Stars

Blue Mountains based filmmaker Tom Taylor redefines the local landscape while filming & editing his indie sci-fi film 'Last Ark'

Set thirty years in the future, 'Last Ark' is the story of the crew of the 'Armidale', a giant floating battle-cruiser that is finding it's way back to coastal Australia from the red centre after escaping an alien invasion. The crew of the ship are searching for any signs of surviving human life while enduring relentless attacks from mysterious other-worldly creatures.

"I had been developing the feature story for quite a while and initially intended to create a short film as more of a teaser, but I always wanted it to be a window into the feature length story. Our largest shoot involved 30+ cast & crew over three days. That initial shoot has been supplemented with quite a few smaller shoots.

Now in post production, the film's running time is nearing 50 minutes & Tom is gearing up to shoot another two days to add to the existing edit.

"The extra two day shoot will really flesh out the beginning of the story. Now that the film is really coming together I'm hoping to use the existing edit to secure some finance to enable me to complete the feature length version of the film."

We've used about 80% local cast & crew & a large part of the story is also set in the Blue Mountains, so it's a really home grown, mountains made project!

Local actors Georgia Adamson (The Secret River - STC), Jon Sivewright (Home & Away), Tiriel Mora (Underbelly) & Christopher Truswell (Star Wars) star in the film along with Josef Ber (Rush - Mamma Mia! the musical), Damion Hunter (Devil's Dust) & Rebecca Massey (Utopia).
