The first rule of fighting space dragons is don't talk about fighting space dragons

In the future, mankind has discovered the secret of faster than light travel. Turns out it was buried inside massive space dragons all along.

Oscar-nominated director and writer Ruairi Robinson (50 Percent Grey, The Last Days on Mars) has teamed up with Jim Uhls, the screenwriter of Fight Club, to create this pitch/proof of concept short film titled The Leviathan. Developed with the assistance of the Irish Film Board, it shows a team of human slaves whaling in the toxic clouds of a gas giant's upper atmosphere. No word if anything more will come of the experiment, but this is three minutes of speculative science fiction that you should make time for.

Uhls is also working on an adventure/horror puzzle game, called Phantasm, set in 1890s Chicago.
