TRAVELER is written and directed by Simon Brown.
"Traveler" is a teaser short for an epic sci-fi feature set in the near future.
When a group of friends discover a secret code on the dark-web, they build a jet-powered craft to attempt jumping to the far side of our galaxy. But when they succeed, they unwittingly open up earth to the ‘aware’ - civilizations who are advanced enough to ‘jump’ through space.
Earth sits at a crucial way-point in the universe and has been targeted for illegal colonization. Only our adventurers can stop this - if they prove to the galactic council how nefarious the security chief's plans are. Such a quest will take them to the far edges of the galaxies and the far-flung worlds there.
