Summer Rayne Oakes’s environmental short art film, Extinction (or eXtinction to give the official title), has just gone live at Vimeo and YouTube.
Summer Rayne, who appears in the 2013 Pirelli calendar shot by Steve McCurry, made Extinction in 2011, when it did the circuit at various film festivals across the world.
The film, directed by Clayton Haskell, is particularly beautiful and powerful, telling a story about our greatest environmental challenges. It briefly featured at Lucire last year as a teaser.
‘It reveals that the most pressing environmental issues are not happening thousands of years from now, but are in fact happening within our lifetime—and specifically, on the timeline of one young woman’s life, from birth to death,’ according to its description.

Extinction has also been released with Spanish and Portuguese subtitles, with German, Italian and French in the coming month.—Jack Yan, Publisher
