After directing the visually stunning animated film "9," you would think filmmaker Shane Acker's next film project was backed by fancy Hollywood producers. Not the case. Acker has bypassed Tinseltown and has teamed up with the Ireland-based animation studio "Brown Bag Films" for "Deep," a full-length animated feature, in which they have released an early promo trailer. Turns out, the filmmakers are also working with the video game developer, Valve (the company behind the popular games "Half-Life" and "Portal"), and they'll be implementing Valve's powerful source game engine to handle all the film's animation, including lighting, rendering and editing. "Deep" is set at a time where Earth has been devastated by a Third World War and human survivors are forced to go undersea for survival. Humanity's only hope falls in the hands of nuclear sub Captain and a deep-sea crew of scientists who have found the power to save Earth from dying. The film is currently in production.
"Deep" is set in a post-apocalypse world, devastated by World War III. But here what's left of humanity shelters undersea in the hulks of sunken ships. The action adventure turns on Sullivan, a captain of a nuclear sub. He makes contact with a splinter group of superior scientific intelligence, the Wayfarers, which has the power to save the earth. But that could come at a terrible cost.
