Today, Machinima released a short film based on Tim Daniel and Mehdi Cheggour‘s graphic novel, Enormous. The story takes place in a post-apocalyptic world that has been overrun with monsters and plague, so that’s a nice two-for-one. The only hope may lie with children, although that’s not made clear why in this short (I haven’t read the graphic novel, so I don’t know if Daniel and Cheggour provided an answer there). The short is meant to set the stage for a larger series, and there’s certainly a lot more story to tell.

The film picks up years after E Day, the worldwide attack of massive insect like beasts, as the remaining humans from all walks of life must band together to survive and fight back against the monstrous invaders. Viewers are introduced to Ellen (Ceren Lee), a mother who has lost her child, and watch as she prepares to play a major role in the human resistance. The cast also includes Steve Braun (Wrong Turn 2), and Erica Gimpel (Veronica Mars).
About Enormous Graphic Novel
Enormous tells the full tale of the aftermath of a vast ecological cataclysm which spawns colossal beasts unlike anything ever witnessed. Humankind stares down imminent extinction and the only law is to hunt or be hunted. It’s survival of the biggest as the earth-shaking sci-fi action adventure continues.
As the last vestige of humankind spirals towards annihilation, Ellen Grace leads the only remaining North American Search & Recovery Team through the deadly giant monster infested streets of Phoenix. However, she soon encounters another predator far more dangerous than the other-worldly creatures stalking the desolate city: her fellow humans.
