"Two treasure-hunting teens sneak into an abandoned military base looking for a rumored gold cache. Once inside, they accidentally activate a top secret relic of the Cold War - a huge mobile weapons system bent on protecting the base from all intruders. Cut off from every exit, the pair must fight to survive."
Hangar No. 5 is an action-packed short film featuring Talan Torriero from Laguna Beach and Charity Shea from The Best Years. Produced by Northwestern University undergraduate students, Hangar No. 5 was shot during October 2007 around the Chicagoland area. The film will premier in June 2008.

We've just uploaded the brand-new official trailer for "Hangar No. 5" at www.hangarmovie.com. This is the trailer for the actual film, not to be confused with the fund-raising trailer featured on blendernation about a year and half ago.
We shot "Hangar No. 5" in October, 2007 (you can see some photos from set on the website) with a crew of around 100 undergraduate students from Northwestern University and an exciting cast featuring Talan Torriero of MTV's "Laguna Beach" fame, and Charity Shea from "Alpha Dog" and "The Best Years". The entire film was shot during an extremely hectic 4 day period at a decommissioned Navy base outside of Chicago. Since then I've been working around the clock on the visual effects, which consist of more than 80 shots throughout the 10 minute film.
We're using Blender for modeling, rigging, shading, animation, and rendering (renderfarm time provided by Jacob Picart and Remnant Studios). The effects are a huge undertaking but we're aiming to complete the film in early June. In the mean time, we'll be updating the website with behind-the-scenes videos so check back to learn more about the film.
