Notes about the filming:
The cost of filming was USD 15.000. The film was shot using one Super Panavision 65mm hand held reflex camera. Synopsis: A lone man stands in burnt skeletal brush against a backdrop of amber sunsets and jagged mountain landscapes. 15 years after a nuclear conflagration, the main character once a teenager, now stranded in a remote place that went untouched, a "worrior" not by choice but of necessity in a land where gangs of human predators travel in packs like wolves, wher junkyards are filled with the dying remnants of society and an army of carnivorous escaped military prisoners threaten a fragile sliver of civilization. Various: The producers wish to express grateful appreciation to those without whom this production would not have been possible: Phil and Suzanne Charlton, Don Earl, HOH Development/Foothill Ranch Company. This film is dedicated to the memory of Franklin J Schaffner. Further reading reference: "Young O.C. movie maker sets sight and high (and 70mm wide) for 1st film". Los Angeles Times 17.10.1989.
