Mass Effect Fan Film ‘Red Sand’ Starring Mark Meer is Live
The movie clocks in at about 14 minutes long, and tells a bit of story about humanity’s discovery of Prothean ruins on Mars, which is a bit of Mass Effect history that hasn’t actually seen any screen time in BioWare’s games. The title “Red Sand” also refers to a drug by the same name that exists in the Mass Effect universe. The stuff is made from the game’s fictional “element zero,” which powers spaceships, makes faster-than-light travel possible, and gives people and aliens telekinetic powers called “biotics.”
The film is notable because it also includes an element from the games — Mark Meer, who plays Jon Grissom in the short, and who voices the male version of Commander Shepard in the games.
