Filmed in a single day with a micro-crew of six people, the series follows 17 year old Riley Cole as he's forced to relocate to Mars' Third Base. Winning the $100,000 production prize would enable the 'Third Base' team to turn the trailer into a full web series of seven three-minute episodes.
Fans of 'Third Base' can like the production's Facebook page, follow cast and crew posts on Twitter and - of course - watch and vote for the trailer via the Movie Extra WebFest Facebook page. Voting closes on November 30.
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.
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.
No parents. No rules. No oxygen. Welcome to Mars.
