Storyline

NASA Deep Space Tracking Facility: Radar is picking something up. An object heading towards earth, L.A., at near light-speed. Impact: 9 seconds. L.A.: A boy, not even 10 years old, is being chased by three older boys. He is holding something small, a 'Terminator' figurine. Dead end! A fence is blocking his way. He is trapped. Standing no chance he hands 'Arnie' over to the gang leader. NASA Deep Space Tracking Facility: Impact! Three... Two... One... ?... Nothing. L.A.: The bullies are leaving the crime scene, now proud owners of an 'Arnie' figurine. But something's happening, something is blocking their way... a man clad in silver, hovering on a surfboard...

The Silver Surfer comes to Earth and helps a kid whose Terminator doll was stolen by some bullies in this impressive student film. That's pretty much it. The short was made during the height of the Terminator 2: Judgment Day craze (hence the doll). Presumably the T-1000 in that movie made some people think "wow this technology could help make a wicked Silver Surfer movie" and so they set about trying to prove that on a small scale. We've since gotten an actual Surfer in the less-than-great Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer movie. While those effects were better than these, they weren't light years apart despite the astronomical difference in budget. Obviously something like this shouldn't be rated on the same scale as something professionally produced (and I've seen far worse "professional" efforts). It's enjoyable for Silver Surfer fans or anyone who likes looking at amateur short films.
