Storyline

Borrowing Time is an homage to 1940's serial adventure films, and concerns the exploits of two victorian aliens, attempting to make sense of an abandoned planet Earth. Allong the way they discover the last man on Earth, an army of stop motion animated termites, and a devious plot by an alien who deals in intangibles. The Aliens have manners, the ships fly on wires, the computers employ large calibrated knobs. This film is less Science fiction, and more the distilation of everything charming in outdated serial adventures, which has been lost. Written by Anonymous

low budget ambitious sci fi, big on creativity
4 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

A low budget, high concept science fiction feature. The acting is solid and the mood of the film is odd yet engaging. The special effects are plentiful and work well within the context of the film. Some of the shots are fantastic and would hold up to any big budget fx picture. And unlike most low budget indie features these days, it was shot on film (black and white 16mm).

Some of the techniques used by Director Webster Crowell include extensive use of pixilation, stop motion animation (his puppets seem to be mostly made from "found objects") and cut-out animation.

There's a quite creative visual gimmick with a time travel sort of device... actually I'm not sure if it was time travel or some sort of matter storage device... anyway it was clever.
