Yes it’s derivative of lots of other sci-fi movies, the soundtrack is borrowed from Inception, 28 Days Later and Sunshine and you’ve seen slicker CGI, but you have to admire what’s been done here on a budget that wouldn’t keep Michael Bay in mineral water for the day.
Director Alex Popov sez:
Concept trailer for the Sci-Fi Action “Goliath” shot in 3 days in Alaska and 3 days in San Diego. Total budget: $150 This project was a one man effort, meaning i had to do it all: concept, props, DP, camera op, directing, editing, post VFX, sound design and so on.
One hundred and fifty bucks (and, presumably, the good will of many friends)
Beat that Hollywood.
