In Streamline, a man in a suit is being chased through a traumatic series of events in his past while attempting to come to terms with a horrible father and a mysterious woman who has access to his mind.

Watch: Dan Marcus' Memory Sci-Fi Thriller Short 'Streamline' in Full

18 July 2014 4:10 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Change the way you remember. If you're looking for something a bit different than all those Hollywood movies in theaters right now, then spend 12 minutes watching this short film titled Streamline. Directed by Fs contributor Dan Marcus, the sci-fi thriller is about a man haunted by traumatic memories who's also being pursued by guys in grey outfits. It borrows a bit from Eternal Sunshine and the Spotless Mind, and has some Chris Nolan/Inception vibe going on, but it's a solid thriller with some sleek camerawork. It moves swiftly, and while the VFX aren't perfect, it's an intriguing indie sci-fi short to make you think. In full below. Synopsis for the short from Vimeo: A man haunted by traumatic memories must confront his past while eluding mysterious pursuers. Streamline is directed by Dan Marcus (follow him at @Danimalish), with a script written by by Dan Marcus, David Hammond & William Coffey, »
