FutureDude Entertainment is seeking investors and production partners for its production of Oceanus: Odyssey One. What began as an acclaimed short film is being expanded into a full-length feature film.
“Since its genesis in mid-2014, my team and I have been expanding the amazing underwater world of Oceanus into what it is today. We’ve brought a bold and expansive vision to life on an extremely modest budget for two simple reasons — the opportunity to show how incredible Oceanus can be and what we, as a creative team, are made of.”
~ Jeffrey Morris, Director & Writer
Proof of Concept: The 30 Minute Short
Oceanus began as a 30-minute short film — Oceanus: Act One — that made it’s debut at the Sci-Fi London Film Festival in May 2015. After garnering critical acclaim and a significant fanbase via social media, the project was released on Blu-ray, Video-On-Demand, and as a spectacular graphic novel.
The Oceanus intellectual property is an action-packed, human drama featuring amazing aquatic technologies and stunning, unexplored locales. Created with input from science advisors from NASA and the film Gravity, Oceanus: Odyssey One is written with an approach of plausibility and realism. Now in preproduction, this action-packed full-length film completes the story arc begun in Oceanus: Act One additional new characters and locations.

Amazing Potential for Success
Perhaps the most important aspect of Oceanus is the production team’s ability to create a high-quality product on a modest budget. This potential is attributed to our powerful creative team and strong relationships with partners like Bialy/Thomas Casting, Hydraulx Studios, The Light Works, and Science Advisor, Dr. Kevin Grazier (Gravity, Battlestar Gallactica).
The cast of Oceanus currently includes Academy Award-nominee Bruce Davison and legendary actor Malcolm McDowell—with several “A” list actors to be approached upon financing.
