Strike A Pose Films has entered the Gametrailers Halloween BOOO-VIE Contest with System Shock 2: The First Encounter. My crew and I spent all week on this, utlizing practical lighting, green screen effects, lots of props, and CGI– A first for STRIKE A POSE!!! Films.

Based on the cult classic PC game SYSTEM SHOCK 2 by Looking Glass Studios, THE FIRST ENCOUNTER follows an unnamed man, awakened from Cryo-Sleep aboard the Von Braun, an intergalactic starship that has recently approached Tau Ceti V.

Something has gone horribly wrong, as he soon learns. Hauntings, monsters, an insane AI, and a ship that is falling apart at the seams all endanger his life. Each step he takes could be his last!

Capturing the classic horror moments of video games that we all know and love, FIRST ENCOUNTER takes us through long hallways, tight corridors, pits the hero against hideous HYBRID monsters, serves as an unknowing pawn to an overlord presence that only wishes to manipulate the character into his own destruction, and audiologs that let the player in on what terrifying things have happened before. And might happen again.

The film can be watched on the film’s page.

    Posted this comment on the films page for it too.

    Not half bad, some pretty awesome work.

    Also, did anyone else notice our cameo dead man on the floor? The guy the soldier took the wrench off of?

    Hmm, guess we now know the fate of Jasper Conroy, dead on a space ship sent to a another star system.

    That just plain sucks.
