Set in Los Angeles, 2057, an outlaw is captured and sentenced to a lifetime of imprisonment on the LUNAR penitentiaries. To reunite with his family, he must become the first convict to escape the corrupt system and return to Earth.

Director Tyson Wade Johnston set out to shoot a short sci-fi/thriller project titled “LUNAR”. He wanted to create a picture heavy on social commentary, that, though set several decades from today, paralleled the issues that we currently live with.

Precog Studios were commissioned for the pre-viz and post-production of the film. They handled the design, modeling and rendering, matte painting, literally everything. Tyson took their assets and handled all of the compositing.
