Sentient Australia – Season one

Benjamin James

Inciting incident

A portal opens in the upper atmosphere releasing a waterfall of red spores. 

As the stream descends to earth, a storm grows, engulfing the planet and unleashing chaos. 


When an alien holocaust is unleashed on humanity, a Navy diver takes command of the survivors to fight back against an ever evolving, ever more frightening, newer version of us, the ‘Sentient.’

Elevator pitch
