The 2012 Project

Six friends hunker down in the woods of West Virginia to confront the potential end of days.


A film by Marcus Ricci


The 2012 Project is the story of six friends who decide to confront the possible end of the world, together. At a remote cabin in West Virginia, they prepare for the impending apocalypse, prophesied by the Mayans to occur on December 21, 2012, and band together to face a cold, uncertain future; in turn, they begin to question what’s truly important about their lives. Filmed in a combination of styles including self-shot video diaries by the cast, cinema verite, iPhone footage and more, the 2012 Project is a heartfelt, whimsical, and unique experience about how preparing for the worst can bring out the best in people.
