It’s a simple title for a science fiction short subject, and a common theme: what happens when one uniquely brave individual decides to step outside the boundaries of what is known and go exploring? Anything can happen. In Traveller, Rachel, a test pilot, takes a prototype jump ship into the unknown, for a trip through both time and space. The consequences for both the pilot and the engineering team that created the vessel are profound.
The world Brown creates is clean and stark, yet where there is detail it is complex and thrilling, and each new event opens a world of potential. This is a proof of concept film, in the same manner as Ruairí Robinson’s The Leviathan we showed you last March. As a teaser, it certainly does its job: it leaves us wanting more.
