You’ve seen the work of Gavin Rothery before. His design was a striking feature of Duncan Jones’ debut film Moon and as you’ll see from this teaser for his short film The Last Man there’s a host of beautifully realised images on show. It’s good to see a trailer whose stock is in its atmosphere rather than its staccato-edited money shots, and The Last Man looks like a nicely haunting post-apocalyptic way to spend your day.
The soundtrack is being composed by Charlotte Hatherley, whose website mentions the work and adds the name of Philip K. Dick into the mix which can only be a good thing. You can catch the world premiere of The Last Man at FrightFest in London on the 23rd of August, and thereafter the short will be on the festival circuit.
Check out the trailer and posters below, crank it up to 1080 won’t you? And follow the man at his blog here.
