Code Premonition is a science fiction/suspense short film that is designed with the intent to provide its target audience, adults over the age of 25, with a solid exhibition of imaginative storytelling based on the realization of the following two primary objectives:

1.) Provide the audience with a visually captivating and suspenseful cinematic experience via the effective utilization of voice acting, realistic artwork, fluid animation, real world footage, and special effects.

2.) Provide the audience with a consistent and compelling original story; the treatment of which will provide a well balanced exhibition of both traditional and non-traditional film making techniques that creates the opportunity for an even more impactful delivery of the first objective.

Along with the intent to seek out the fulfillment of these two key objectives, the overall goal of this thesis is to encourage and support the production of future independent science-fiction themed intellectual properties1 under the Code Premonition brand name.
