Tribeca Digital Studios Presents: 7x6x2. A film by Paul Pope & Sridhar Reddy
In a remote desert on an unspecified planet, a large terraforming robot – called a MEK – has gone down. A lone serviceman has been sent out into the hostile, unforgiving location to repair the machine, only to find... he’s not alone. Surrounding his campsite are seven fierce Rock Creatures, weaponized monsters who were believed to have gone extinct after the war. Armed only with the tools of his trade and a campfire to keep the creatures at bay, the old serviceman is paid an unlikely visit in the middle of the night by a young surveyor, unaware of the threat surrounding them. Together the serviceman and surveyor must survive the night before the campfire dies out.
