Sci-fi Epic “Valiant” to Premiere at Newport Beach Film Festival

(Newport Beach, California–April 28, 2014) “Valiant,” a swashbuckling sci-fi thriller about a trio of fugitive air pirates, will make its world theatrical premiere at the Newport Beach Film Festival on April 28th. Directed by Robin Phillips and starring Gil Darnell, Jason Hice and Andrew Varenhorst, the 23-minute film, shot and finished in 4K and featuring more than 130 visual effects shots, is the precursor to a planned feature-length epic in the spirit of “Star Wars” and “Indiana Jones.”

Set in a dystopian future, Valiant delivers the rip-roaring adventure of three wanted men, known as the Valiant Three , pirates of the skies and thorns in the side of the Evil Royal Crown. These daring outlaws soar above a dying world in a tilt-rotor cargo plane while robbing from the rich and giving to themselves.
