‘THIRD BASE’ trailer to be screened at Phoenix Comicon
21 MAY – A 60-second trailer for Australian webseries ‘Third Base’ will be screened at Phoenix Comicon on Sunday, May 27, following its official selection by the Phoenix Comicon Film Festival Committee.
The trailer will be screened at 11:31am in the Phoenix Ballroom at the Hyatt Regency.
‘Third Base’, which is set on a Mars research station, was filmed in Sydney in a single day in November 2011 with a micro-crew of six people. The production is currently in development as a multi-episode webseries.
17-year-old Riley (Alexander Fechine) is forced to tag along with his father and relocate to Third Base – a remote scientific research station on Mars. Living in close, climate-controlled quarters with 30 scientists, engineers and their families is hardly how Riley envisioned spending his teen years – and he is determined to cause enough trouble to get sent home.
After he is caught taking drugs with the base doctor’s daughter Misha (Kaitlin Harasta), Riley finds himself locked under curfew – along with all the other under-18s. But when an explosive decompression threatens their lives, Riley’s forced to take charge and makes the shocking discovery – every adult at Third Base is dead.
With three months before the next shuttle can arrive from Earth, Riley and the others are forced to fend for themselves while they wait for help.
No parents, no rules, no oxygen – welcome to Mars.
