From timeless classics to cutting edge movies, series, short films and podcasts, DUST acquires, produces and distributes all types of content.
“FutureDude Entertainment is tremendously honored to premiere our groundbreaking shorts on DUST. These films are but a sneak peek into the varied and unique neo-classic universes we’ve been carefully crafting for fans of intelligent and thought-provoking sci-fi entertainment,” said Morris.
The deal includes the showcase of the animated world-hopping adventure Parallel Man: Infinite Pursuit starring the talented voices of Ming-Na Wen (The Book of Boba Fett, Mulan), John Cho (Star Trek), and Lance Reddick (John Wick) on 28 March and the live-action underwater Oceanus: Act One on 18 April starring Sharif Atkins (Guardians of the Galaxy), Bruce Davison (X-Men), Megan Dodds (For All Mankind) and Malcolm McDowell (Star Trek: Generations) exclusively on DUST.
As per the official synopsis, Parallel Man:Infinite Pursuit is the story of Nick Morgan—a super soldier chased through the multiverse by commandos from a totalitarian regime. To escape, he jumps between parallel Earths including a polluted industrial hellscape; a planet where dinosaurs evolved into humanoids; and a fungal world populated by giant mushrooms.
Oceanus: Act One takes us to the year 2029 when an amazing breakthrough in whale/human communication is at a hand. Before the final experiment can be conducted, a marine biologist and her aquatic engineer husband are caught in a catastrophic global disaster that separates them from each other and their spectacular underwater city.
