Why Watch? Channeling Enemy of the State, a chase is at the center of this slick short from Dennis Liu. It takes the rapidly approaching possibility of targeted advertising tied into our social network (which was explored in Minority Report) and extrapolates it into the security/privacy debate. It’s slightly enigmatic, using that as a hook that satisfies. The acting and writing are more than strong, but the real star here is the concept brought to life by a fully realized CGI world and pro-level camera work. Replace the faces here with big name stars, and this could be any larger budget science fiction attempt of the past decade. All of that to say that Liu clearly has the chops to play at the highest level. What will it cost you? Only 14 minutes. Skip work. Watch more short films. »
