eXtinction is an environmental art short that brings together powerful storytelling with visceral imagery. View it here: https://vimeo.com/summerrayneoakes/extinctionthemovie

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.”

- ALYSIA REINER, Actress


“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.”
