Futurum X is where Mad Max meets Star Wars meets The Time Machine.
Kax is from the year 2700 and must go back in time to make sure he is never born or else mankind will never survive. This time when he goes back, the Earth has changed and is now ruled by women. Also, he’s lost his best friend Max who is a computer and if that wasn’t bad enough, he’s being hunted by Time bandits who want use Max to bind the space time continuum. It’s complicated, but who wants boring.
Futurum X is a feature film written and directed by award winning filmmaker Kipp Howard and features the talents of Dean Jones for GGI, Luke Kirby on music, Zane Anderson on production design, Lorin Paddock and Shane KerKesik add their awesome use of Drone Shot Footage.
In May 2015 the team was able to produce the short film, Futurum with just a few hundred dollars, which premiered at the 24th St. George Guerrilla Film Festival and despite the cold, hard winds, and rain, the team completed a fun little teaser short film available on the crowdfunding website.
So with the completion of this short film we were confident and excited to endeavor to make a feature film: Futurum X. It’s kinda like Star Wars meets Mad Max meets the Time Travler meets Zena. So there’s a lot of excitement, drama, action, plot, and beautiful visuals as they shoot this in the amazing Salt Lake City valley, the salt flats, Black Rock, and the awesome little Sahara Desert right here in the backyard in the Great State of Utah.
Forget the hype. See the past as the future by experiencing the movie’s revelation of the past’s future. The truth will unfold as Futurum X: The Future is Yesterday!
Fund this project now, before the future returns.

Please take a moment to watch the trailer and give some feed back. Share it with others. My desire to create an inspirational film. Enjoy!
Michel Shane kissed his daughter Emily goodbye for the last time in April 2010. As she walked alongside the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, to meet him for ride home following a sleep-over, a speeding motorist swerved off the road and struck her, killing her.
Emily became yet another victim of a road nicknamed “Blood Alley.”
Shane, an executive producer of Catch Me if You Can and I, Robot, hopes to end the senseless loss of life – in his community and others across the country – by doing what he knows best: telling the story on film.
He has launched a Kickstarter campaign, which runs through Aug. 20, to raise the money to make a documentary on his daughters story, the dangers of the PCH and how communities across the country can help make their notorious highways a better and safe place.
Michel Shane is a filmmaker, producer and co-founder of Hand Picked Films. He’s best known as the executive producer of “Catch Me If You Can” and “I, Robot,” along with his business partner Anthony Romano. On April 3, 2010, Shane’s 13-year-old daughter Emily Rose was killed by an erratic, speeding motorist on Pacific Coast Highway, a road that has become notorious for motorist and pedestrian fatalities. Lined by homes on one side and ocean on the other, it serves a community of 13,000 but draws hundreds of thousands of motorists on holiday weekends. Recognizing that many communities have a deadly highway, Shane hopes to provide a “template for change” using his documentary as a catalyst.
