Fan Made: Project Arbiter - A Steampunk Captain America -Esque Short

9 February 2014 2:38 PM, PST | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

[Best Watched With Headphones] What if a World War II super soldier was created not from a serum but from a Dead Space -esque,Isaac Clarke engineer suit? This is a really polished effort that minimizes what's often the two weakest elements of most small-budget, amateur films, the dialogue and the VFX. Instead, the project relies on the score and subtitles to tell the story of captain Joseph Colburn. It's a winner in my book and I hope there's a sequel to continue the story, perhaps the filmmakers will turn to kickstarter or indiegogo if they require additional funding. Written and directed by Michael Chance for Burning Ideas in association with r&r Studios and Never Static Pictures. Synopsis:"1943.

A Soldier Fights Nazis With an Experimental Suit in This Fantastic Short Film

7 February 2014 12:00 PM, PST | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Why Watch? When you’re surrounded by a dozen Nazis with a couple of tanks, it helps if you’re wearing a suit that makes you invisible. In this Iron Man-evoking short from Michael Chance, a small crew takes on a suicide task of infiltrating a WWII villa where the Germans are doing some world-changing experiments. It’s a tight men-on-a-mission story with some excellent action (and acting that isn’t too distracting), but it shines for its pro-level cinematography and special effects that bring a steampunk hero drenched in sepia wash into a realistic world. The grisly, flesh-eating make-up effects don’t hurt either. It’s a fun alternative history vaunted by stirring visuals, keen designs and an appropriately rousing score. What Will It Cost? About 17 minutes. A New Short Film Every Weekday »
