A boy leaves an underwater colony to follow the call of a telepathic squid through an abstract landscape on a strange ice planet.

Production ideas:

 This project has the potential to be either animation or live action. I want this to be a minimalistic film with a surrealistic visual tone. Although it is a grand science fiction adventure, a ton of money shouldn't have to be spent to produce this right. I see this being a film that relies on artistic ingenuity and shows its seams. Beneath the Cold Above is a rough, but heartfelt epic that will benefit from a creative problem solving method of filmmaking.
