Kickstarted feature film Aurora takes place in the future after an robotic alien invasion that has left our Earth pretty much totaled. The first-ever trailer for this low-budget feature is out, and it's pretty impressive. Check it out.


Robert Kouba is the writer/director/producer and according to his Kickstarter page, this is the basic (somewhat spoilery) premise of Aurora:

Aurora is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi film, set in 2080 - 60 years after machines have taken over the world.

Our story follows Andrew (Julian Schaffner), who encounters a car accident on the day of the uprising, in 2020. He wakes up 60 years later, in a world where the human race is almost extinct.

On his path, he comes across a girl named Calia (Jeannine Wacker), who ventures north to reach a long-rumored stronghold called Aurora, the last human reserve. While on constant watch for the machines, they develop feelings for each other until a horrendous discovery tears their relationship apart.

Andrew is not human.

Color us intrigued. However, it's a really big premise for a film that's being made on a tight budget. We'll keep our eyes on this one.
