Hello Everyone and happy Music Monday! I am featuring Independent music but with a twist. Today’s feature will spotlight the Independent Film Aurora (A SteamPunk Short) a film written and directed by Robert Kouba. It reflects the society we currently live in as a species and the technology that is advancing exponentially.
I will also feature the soundtrack of Aurora, music that also made this film great!
Today’s post is also serving to kick off a new spotlight feature that I will run for a limited time here at IndieWritersReview the Friday Feature Film…which I will spotlight various films by Independent Filmmakers!
So take a peek and enjoy!:O)
Robert Kouba began his career in his home country Switzerland. He started being involved in the visual arts early on. At a very young age he started pursuing painting, but quickly switched his focus to moving pictures. His science-fiction short “Xenopia” won major awards when he was just 12 years old.
After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in economics he started following his passion for film by graduating from the cinematic arts program at the eminently respectable SAE Institute in Zurich.
He received his first recognition in 2010 when he directed the award wining science-fiction short film “Translucent Unicorn” (2010) for Philips as part of their international campaign to promote their new television.
Later he worked on the highly anticipated science-fiction thriller “The Rift” (2012) which was shown in several film festivals and on television.
He’s currently working on his first feature film entitled “Aurora” (2014)
WINNER – BEST ACTION/ADVENTURE FILM – Comic Con International Independent Film Festival 2013.
The post-apocalyptic sci-fi film is set in 2080 – 60 years after machines have taken over our planet. 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 Callie (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.
