eXtinction is an environmental art short that brings together powerful storytelling with visceral imagery. View it here:

It depicts that the most pressing environmental issues are not happening thousands of years from now, but are in fact happening within our lifetime, and more personally on the timeline of a young woman’s life - from birth to death.

CLAYTON HASKELL (director) takes viewers on a visually stunning journey through space and time, while SUMMER RAYNE OAKES (Producer/Writer/Actress) breathes fervent passion and emotion to the piece through her own personal story and life.

“Exquisite, powerful, meaningful and deeply impactful. eXtinction is a call to action indeed.”


“A beautiful production, yet shocking in the short term changes projected for the Earth’s living Environment. It is a perfect tribute to Tom Eisner, a great friend from the first time I met him in the fall of 1950 until his recent and (to me) untimely death.”

- EDWARD O. WILSON, Professor Emeritus, Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard

“Here in images of a rare beauty, is a brutal reminder of what could happen to our planet.„if we do nothing. And also a real message of hope.”

- MAURICE LEVY, CEO of Publicis Groupe

“eXtinction, produced, written and starring environmental warrior and fashion model Summer Rayne Oakes and directed by Clayton Haskell is a terribly realistic yet magically beautiful film about humanity’s plight.

The film depicts the shattering speed at which our planet is deteriorating through the eyes of a remarkable young woman whose love for nature and all its creatures is crushed by the daily disappearance of the wonders she so admired as a child.

I hope many people see eXtinction and in doing so take the full measure of the tremendous challenge at hand.”
