"Who are you?" Another intriguing new science fiction short film to watch today, if you've got the time for something a bit more contemplative than the usual flashy sci-fi fare. This short is called Tonight I Strike, and features a couple of robot helpers while set in the near future but the story is actually about a brother caring for his young sister. Created by up-and-coming filmmaker Dan Gaud, the short has some excellent cinematography and solid indie acting, although some of the visual effects look a bit rough (except the bots). However, there's an emotional story at its core that shines through and makes this a worthy summer short. Tonight I Strike doesn't have a synopsis; available directly on Vimeo. Directed by Dan Gaud, written by Gaud & Ayz Waraich. The cinematography is by Kevin Rasmussen, and the music is by Casey 3Pm Clark. The cast includes Bass Stewart, Delilah Kates and Michael Coughlan. »

Here's a spectacular sci-fi short film called Tonight I Strike, directed by Dan Gaud. The director started his career doing VFX work on films such as District 9 and The Watchmen. He's looking to launch a directing career for himself, so he created this $15,000 short to help push that goal forward in hopes it will get him signed up with a talent agency.
The story follows Liam, who "is searching for his sister and nothing will get in his way. A tale of violence, redemption, and magnets."
I enjoyed this short and thought was a solid production. Check it out!

Exclusive: After getting his start doing VFX work on projects including District 9 and The Watchmen, Canadian filmmaker Dan Gaud has his eye on directing. Here is a look at his calling card, Tonight I Strike, is a $15,000 futuristic short with about 60 VFX shots that he executed on a laptop computer in a short he shot in seven days. The money was raised by his manager, Jewerl Ross, who signed Gaud off another short that he had made for $500. Gaud’s hope from this short is to sign with an agency and either make a feature that is set in the world this short presents, or maybe the plethora of no-budget features that producers like Jason Blum are minting money with as counter-programming to the big budgeters. What do you think? »
