Hey, everybody loves a good visual aid, so what better way to shop your movie script than with a ready-made trailer to show off the idea?

Up-and-coming writer/director Zach Lipovsky is shopping his Chrononaut script around, and decided to create a spec trailer to show off what his film could look like in execution. Lipovsky spent four months animating the trailer in CGI, and the story focuses on time travel, mech suits and a family bond to tie it all together.

Here’s the synopsis:

A dead mother’s will instructs the estranged father and daughter to spread her ashes in a remote cave. Trapped inside, they find a futuristic safe house and a time machine capable of bringing her back. They must learn to work together to fight threats from their future and escape the cave alive.

Check out the mock-up trailer below and let us know what you think:

So, do you hope this one gets picked up by a studio? What do you think of the idea to create a spec trailer for a script?
