The first is "Dormant" which will film in Seattle, Wash.
- Three years after receiving the Nobel Prize, Dr. Arnold Mormon uses a machine he built to make Mount Helen, an active super-volcano threatening to erupt any time, into a dormant mountain. Jake O'Connor, a student at the University of Washington, Seattle majoring in physics realizes that volcanoes never actually go dormant. After seeing a report about drilling on Mount Helen, Jake starts snooping around. He finds blueprints for the machine. As O'Connor examines the blueprints it becomes clear to him that there is a fatal flaw. There is a vital piece missing from Dr. Mormon's machine. When it's announced that the doctor is giving a talk at the university, Jake decides to confront him with his knowledge that the volcano could still blow at any minute, especially if there is digging going on near the mountain. Failing with Dr. Mormon, Jake recruits his friends, Mary Beth and Jensen to building the missing piece themselves. If they fail and Mount Helen erupts, the world will become a vast wasteland of ice as the ashes block out the sun.
