The cast is superb! The acting is impeccable! The premise is intriguing, exciting and mysterious! The effects create a beautifully believable advanced underwater setting that draws the viewer in and refuses to let go! Please continue this incredible journey.

For as long as I can remember, I have been a fan of science and Science Fiction. Growing up in the 70s, I also loved watching Jacques Cousteau and almost anything to do with our Oceans. I have gone on to work most of my adult life as a diver. To see a project that can so seamlessly meld all of those passions into one stunning movie like Oceanus is something very rare. In just a short 30 minute video I was drawn to these characters and their underwater world. I hope we get to see more of Oceanus in the future.

“We’re dusting off the old scripts and making plans,” FutureDude Founder and Oceanus Writer/Director Jeffrey Morris said.
